Cast & Credits
While this synopsis may sound like it leads into a great series, Prominent Woman falls prey to empty narrative and aimless characters, making it almost a pointless drama to watch. From beginning to end, it sets up the illusion that something remarkable may happen with Woo-Hee and the characters around her, but it ultimately fails in providing any sort of substance.
The show has Woo-Hee go through a seemingly ordinary life, the entertainment of which hinges entirely on empty relationships and half-wrought interactions. While watching this series, I couldn't help but ask myself constantly, "What's the point?" - nearly pleading with Prominent Woman to give me any shred of a story or character arc.
Prominent Woman tries to stand out by making a statement that everyone has problems, but one must learn to love themselves and overcome. However, this point is so buried within the horrible story direction that I could hardly figure out what the point was until the very end.
Overall, I don't think this series has much to offer. It is short, so you don't lose much by checking it out, but I truly believe there is nothing in Prominent Woman that has any clout.
