Ji Yeong has lived her whole life as a rugged individualist. One day, she meets a man who is a total opposite version of her. He lives for others. And, these two very different people fall in love with each other. They balance out each other so well that they really don't miss out on the things that they might have never even imagined about.

I'm gonna make this simple and sweet because frankly I am a pretty lazy writer.
As a viewer of 'Individualist, Ms. Ji Young,' I can say I was able to connect to it's likeness in portraying mental illness on a personal level. I found myself hearing the female lead spout words I have said before myself. I have struggled with mental illness my whole life, and although it is not directly mentioned in this show it is blatantly there in it's rawest form. The need of being in a relationship with someone...or the complete opposite... The need to protect yourself by pushing everyone away...Wanting a relationship but having the fight or flight response kicking in the moment you feel you could be hurt. Flight always being the end result because it seems easier compared to being hurt. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. Watching this series was extremely personal for me and I feel that it was done beautifully. I am not sure how the experience of watching will be for those who do not understand or have a mental illness... but I can be sure that anybody who can even relate a little bit will definitely love this show. Hopefully this lazy and short review might help one of you out there. If you decide to watch, I really hope you enjoy!

This two episode drama was really short and sweet. I loved both episodes and I'm not even being biased here. One thing I liked in this drama was their OST (if not, then their background music). It was really good, it really stirred up my feelings. The acting and chemistry between Gong Myung and Min Hyo Rin was unexpected. They looked so cute together. Even the story itself was unique, and I'm pretty sure some people could relate to this.

Overall, I rated this as 9/10. I just loved it, srsly.
