“Missing Korea” is a romantic comedy set in the fictional year of 2020 when North and South Korea have taken significant steps towards reunification. One of those steps include hosting the first-ever combined Miss Korea pageant.
Short, sweet, and fun, I definitely recommend it. Our female lead is feisty and headstrong, and our male lead is kind and generous. The story is lighthearted with no real drama or angst to be seen. Plus it's super short, so you can finish it in a morning's time.
Very short and cute but not that impressing.. Maybe because the concept "Missing Korea" is just what happened to the lead that only appeared in just 1 episode. There's one funny episode where the lead is sooooo funny but the rest is just so so. Music matched the scenes and that is good. Not impress with the female lead's acting, maybe 50/50? Well, I have nothing against her, but maybe she just needs more practice I guess? Oh, but her acting in this drama is very cute. While for the male lead, even though I saw him act in an other drama, this is just my own opinion, I'm also not impressed with the act or maybe because I can't see any chemistry from the 2 leads. Most of the scenes on these drama are about both of them so practically the story really revolves around them. Anyway.... Music, checked. Acting, checked. Uhmmm...... Ah!! Story? I don't know if its bad writing, acting or directing.. Or if its dragged or just because its too short that's why there are some scenes that should be in this drama to understand it? really don't know and I have no idea why I can't grasped the story. But I guess its because its short that's why I can't appreciate and see that the drama is going smoothly. Anyway. Overall? Oh, I forgot, re-watched value... Hmmm... Download or stream the drama to re-watch -- HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED...You can only watch it once but not twice and not even thrice, unless you're a big fan of either or both of the leads and just want to see there faces everyday, go ahead I will not stop you. :)
