The concept of "Kiss Scene in Yeonnam-dong" is 'who kissed her that night?' and it's about a young woman who has been single all her life looking for the most handsome kisser. She has been single all her life, but she's not all that innocent in this honest romantic story of young people. (Source: HanCinema) Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
Personally, I found Yoon Sol's interest strange, but if you look at it lightly, if you don't actually take it serious, it's easy to brush aside. She has a very bubbly, energetic personality, although she's oblivious to many, many things - as your usual young female romance protagonist. Hae Young, her friendly and shy best friend, is just as charming as the male leads you find in this type of troop. The rest of the cast was okay.
There are many aspects to appreciate in this little web drama: even if the premise was weird, it's original; the drama is fun, entertaining, even if it can become frustrating since it was easily predictable; the attention paid to a certain side couple was interesting and fresh (and I wish they had done another couple's experience while they were at it) and... I have to say it... that kiss scene... I never care for those but I can't write a review without slow clapping that kissing scene. Best off 2020 so far (as if we're that far into 2020 lol).
(Sort of Spoilery part!) One thing that threw me off was Hae Young's character development. Although it did happen, and we did have key moments of said development shown to us, the way the writers closed off the narrative oh-so-neatly in the last episode left me with a bittersweet feeling. Other than that, the pacing was good.
The drama did repeat lots of scenes, mostly about the mystery of the kiss night. And it was easy to predict who was the kisser, but the drama had a nice pace, even though it was a short one, and they managed to complete the story and be wholesome. The characters were pretty intriguing and interesting. Plus, they had chemistry, which helped a lot with the built up of the love story. The performances were really good from all the actors and actresses of the cast.
So, overall, eight out of ten.
