A fortune teller, Madam Antoine, has to share the same building with a famous psychologist, Choe Su Hyeon. Su Hyeon hates fortune tellers and therefore hates everything that Madam Antoine represents. He makes her agree to participate in a psychological experiment which sends the two of them down the road to love.
Madame Antoine is a drama that should not be taken seriously in any shape or form, either as a psychology based show, a romance or a comedy. That being said, it's not a terrible show by any means, just not the best one out there.
The premise is fairly simple. You have the easier going, more whimsical female lead fighting - and falling in love with- a science/fact based male lead. Throw in some shenanigans in the form of a psychological experiment and what you should end up with is a fun, light-hearted romantic comedy.
And that is what you get, somewhat. The show is fun, light-hearted and a romantic comedy but it lacks a punch.
The writing is nothing groundbreaking, oftentimes missing out on potential conflict moments. There are the typical cute moments between the leads along with the requisite conflicts, and the characters are fairly cookie cutter but nothing that stays engraved in your mind. And the story is fairly predictable.
The directing and acting as well do nothing new, neither elevating nor detracting from the story. They tell the plot in the barest sense possible.
A good watch for a really dry spell, but not something to go out of your way to watch.
It's a story about (Madame Antoine) a fortune teller who have to share the same building with a famous Psychologist. Choe Su Hyeon hates fortune-tellers and everything that this woman represent so he gets her to a agree on a psychological experiment which puts both of them on a journey that makes them fall for each other.
This drama handled a couple of real-life issues that we could relate to and solve by being nicer by taking other people issues into prescriptive before acting.
Personally, I loved this drama and I really love both of the main actors.
I've always known that Seong Jun is an amazing actor and in the last episode he totally owned the crying scene! I couldn't ask for a better finale!
Sadly, I could see a redundancy; Seong Jun have also taken a previous role in (Hyde Jekyll, Me) where he is a Psychologist with an issue that gets to be solved in the drama. I hope he doesn't take another role as a Psychologist! He can do better!
The beautiful Han Ye Seul is stunning !
I've come to known her from her previous funny drama (Birth Of A Beauty) and I can honestly say that I can't wait for whatever she would offer in the next years!
She makes me laugh and the way she handles the role grasps all of my attention with her sincerity!
I'm not sure if I'll watch it again but it was fun while it lasted!
