Definitely one of 2013's most underrated dramas. "All About My Romance" was actually quite refreshing to watch, since a lot of the dramas I've been watching have had melodrama tenancies in them, this one was definitely a good break from all the heartache and stress. It had the perfect balance of comedy and romance, while incorporating some political matters into the drama.. Speaking of the whole "politics" theme, I was a bit skeptical on how I would react to the cute and light romance colliding with the more serious debates of politics. However, while watching this drama there were never any parts I felt like skipping over. The writers did a pretty good job in making sure that the 1st episode really pulled you into the entire show, and while I will admit I found the politics scenes a bit uninteresting, I continued watching this because of the incredible "laugh-out-loud" moments and (I have to say it) the romance scenes that at some points left me giddy. I loved the casting for this drama. I've seen quite a few of Lee Min Jung's dramas/films and I've previously watched Han Chae Ah, Gong Hyung Jin and Kim Jung Nan's dramas, so I was excited to see a cast I was well familiar with. And I absolutely loved Shin Ha Kyun's acting.. He may not have been your basic eye-candy, but with skills like that you can't complain. And his character did turn out to be one of those characters you just fall in love with because they are the way they are. When it comes to the certain character's traits, I wasn't a fan of Han Chae Ah's character. Not because she was an obstacle in the main couple's relationship, but because of how the writers wrote her out to be. This is just my opinion, but I found her character to be quite pathetic and petty at times, excluding some of her comedic relief in the drama, but I think the writers could have gone a slightly different route with her character instead of making her out to act like basically a jealous teenager who couldn't get the man she loved. But I will admit, her character did change quite a bit even helping the lead's relationship towards the end, so in the end all was well. The OST was pretty good as well. Cute and upbeat songs that you might possibly find yourself singing along to over time. Overall I recommend this drama if you're searching for a cute and bubbly rom-com to watch. Don't let the politics matter psych you out.. I guarantee you'll see this drama's value as you watch more episodes!
