Two capable lawyers Eun Jae and Hyeong U fell in love during a baseball match. Soon after that they got married and open their own small law firm. But when there is love there are also fights. Soon both of them face problems in their young relationship. Will they get over it or is it the end of their relationship?
An interesting twice on romance stories, Can't Lose takes the 'Happily Ever After' and gives it a twist.
As we watch Eun Jae and Hyeong U attempt to navigate their marriage life after a whirlwind courtship, we get to see that marriage and dating are two different lives. As their problems come to clash, the story takes us on a completely realistic rollercoaster ride of ups, downs and realizations. The show remains true to it's ideas, and it finished as perfectly as it began. The two still bicker and mismatch, but through new, more understanding eyes that reflect actual relationships.
The acting was great, with chemistry not only between the leads, but also with their friends and supporters. There are no evil characters, no misunderstood ones. They're normal people, which takes the acting another notch up because you get the feeling that the actors are themselves. My only complain is that Choe Ji U (Eun Jae) sometimes lost me in her portrayal, where I couldn't feel for her. But she still hit it out of the ballpark during most of the scenes.
While not the best of shows, Can't Lose is a breath of fresh air from the overly dramatic or comedic shows. Grounded in reality, with enough laughter to be fun and enough, daily problems to resonate with you, this is a show to watch when you need something new.
