Cast & Credits
Anyway, for me, if you're watching this because of Mike He forget it. Just forget it. His character brings shame to him. He portrayed it well, as always, but it just doesn't fit him. You know his magic spell, that one he always had in his other dramas? This drama is only saved by his presence bt yet it doesn't even let you see that sparkle of him. His character is really low, at least for me.
The main actress too... she doesn't know how to act. She's too automatic, and doesn't fit with Mike He. I heard opinions saying that was because she was not used to good girls roles but still, it's awful.
The drama scenes doesn't seem real and the character feelings as well. They didn't really develop the story and thats a pity.
For me it was not a worthy drama. Ive been looking for more opinions, thought.
The first episode is quite okay but later it just gets worse and worse.
There's not emotions, I can't feel anything from the drama and i think the things we get the most from dramas and make us like it more are the feelings the drama gives us.
I'll quote here a review of blog.dramafever.com: "Calling for Love is not a bad drama. It’s even fairly charming in its own low-key way. But a cast of talented actors seems wasted in a drama that can best be described as inoffensive."
I don't really like to tell people bad comments that make them not watch it.. but after this drama i cant think otherwise.
I guess the bottom line is, don't bother watching it unless you're a diehard Charlene fan or Mike fan more than I am (which I highly doubt).
