It´s comparably less makjang, but more morals – and Schubert's Serenade, again and again

"Summer Scent" is one of those early classical KDramas, marking the emergence of the South Korean TVdrama genre as an export hit with all its quality features. In the early 2000s the Hallyu, the Korean Wave started creating a stir, first in Asia and at last throughout the rest of the world.

Typically, the narration is so richly peppered with sometimes malicious, sometimes tragic twists - ´makjang´ at its best - that for some the emotionalism might be almost unbearable, if you are not ready open up for the deepest dramas of heart and soul. KDrama is in that context also a master of nasty, often enough quite malicious twists and turns. However, "Summer Scent" is comparably less makjang, but more morals. Nevertheless, with their decisions the protagonists truely can put a strain on your nerves. You should to be prepared to sympathy, suffering and compassion - even if you might struggle at times. This KDrama, too, with its twists and turns rocks the boat until the very end...

The plot juggles a heart transplant with the idea of cell memory. The whole story is poetically told, memorably filmed in front of a summery backdrop and played with a lot of heart. On top of that, the soundtrack eats its way mercilessly into the hearts of the audience: Schubert's Serenade, sometimes in German, sometimes in Korean, sometimes instrumental, but: the serenade again and again...

Summer Scent suffers unfortunately from the same ills as the rest of the Endless Love dramas, which is to say that it's slow as molasses and at least 10 episodes too long. However, like its predecessors, the foundation of the show's main plot is phenomenal! The main characters' chance encounter on the mountain, and every scene they're in for at least the next the next 6 episodes at least are well worth the time. If you find you can't handle it after that, just skip to the end for faster resolution. We won't judge you!
