Lucky Romance is your typical romantic comedy - a meet cute couple, best friends, overacting to draw laughs and hints of melodrama. And while it isn't the best romantic comedy out there, it also isn't the worst.

Like many similar shows, there isn't much plot beyond the romance of the leads who start off as polar opposites. There's some side plots, yes, but their purpose is to help move the romance forward. The plot is fairly entirely fluff, having little substance but entertaining enough.

The acting is average. Hwang Jeong Eum is great as always but falls into a common character type. Ryu Jun Yeol manages to take the character of Je Su Ho and make him endearing and creative when he would be dull on paper. He's the heart of the show. The rest of the cast are serviceable, being neither great nor terrible.

The same could be said of the directing, which isn't groundbreaking or all that creative, but does a good enough job telling the story.

Lucky Romance is average and can go on the rainy day/dry-spell list but isn't likely to win over any hearts.

I'm disappointed. I really enjoyed episodes 1-12 and I would even say episodes 13-14 were ok but 15 and 16 were a mess, they were bad written and I don't know why I didn't stop watching.

I don't know why they decided to make Bo Nui run after the accident, I mean, I know she's scared, she just started to change her mind about her luck, that she isn't at fault for everything bad happening around her and then the one she loves could be badly hurt because she tried to save her... but running away? Disappearing? Not saying anything to Su Ho? Wow, I don't understand. Her character development was ruined.

And the last scene... what was that kiss? They're going to get married and they kiss like they are kissing a wall? I guess they told them to do it like that, I don't know.

The end made me feel bitter... That said, Hwang Jeong Eum acting was a bit so-so for me, despite that I liked her, she wasn't yelling! The only drama I watched where she was the mc was KMHM and she was annoying. The one that shined here was Ryu Jun Yeol. I hope we can see him more as mc in a drama soon.

Oh, the laugh Se Ho and Bo Nui did was really cute.

I have watched so many good dramas, but have to say that Su Ho's character is by far my favourite. Ryu Jun Yeol did an amazing job here! He is just so natural on screen.

de todos os dramas que eu já vi, com certeza, o je suho foi meu male lead favorito!!!

Triste que um dos meus dramas favoritos dessa temporada acabou :(

I really like the music of this Drama because it's not the usual K-pop and ballads but they've used Indie as well. It brings a different feeling to the Drama all together and makes it more interesting.

I usually don't like Hwang Jung Eum because I find her acting over-the-top and honestly just annoying (I understand most people seem to love her and I'm not saying she's terrible, just that personally it gets on my nerves).

However, this drama really outdid itself. Ryu Jun Yeol played an ADORABLE role and I didn't find myself annoyed at Hwang Jung Eum a single time (at her character, yes, but the actress herself, no. And God that wardrobe has GOT to go..)

I give it a 5/5

@ilate I couldn't have put it better myself.
I really enjoyed the drama but as you said, Hwang Jeong Eum's acting is really getting to me.
Before I could see some slight changes between her characters. But here.. no :(

THAT being said, I really enjoyed the other actors efforts. Especially Ryu Jun Yeol ;)

The ending was so perfect, everything was so perfect. This is one of the most amazing dramas ever. TuT♥
(and the NG scenes at the end of the last episode were the cutest TuT♥)
