Simple, yet entertaining

search: WWW offers everything a drama needs: tension, comedy, romance and above all, an engaging plot carried out by a reliable, entertaining cast. The women in this drama stand out ( special mention: Ye Soo Jung! Outstanding!) with men portraying rather side characters but nonetheless, well-rounded and utterly charming ones. Even though the focus is set on the female characters the drama does not scream WOMEN EMPOWERMENT in your face. Yes, the female leads are bold, but in a realistic way with flaws, worries and weaknesses of their own.

The story is simple, but doesn't get boring at any point. The drama has a a grand start, an according continuation and a proper conclusion. I really had hoped for an ending which wouldn't seem too rushed and luckily that was the case.

The three female leads have an equal amount of screen time and each of their stories has enough content about the struggle and perks of a successful woman in modern times to keep you interested in their lives. The work life in the web business, which all three have in common, offers interesting aspects about the huge impact of the internet and search engines on our daily lives and depicts how the internet forms and affects today's society and vice versa.

I could go on an on praising this drama, its plot and the cast, but I'd rather you see (watch) for yourself what makes this drama great. The drama's strength lays in its cast and the realistic portrayal of the internet business and a self-made woman's life; minor flaws may be the tacky intro song in the beginning of each episode (apart from that the OST offers some lovely songs!) and the melodramatic moments between the lead couple in the last two episodes.

Definitely one of my favourite dramas of 2019!
