Gang Ju Eun is a woman, who used to be the school beauty and is now an overweight lawyer. Kim Yeong Ho is a man, who had to give up his sports career and now works as a personal trainer. They meet each other and this become a good opportunity for them both to learn a valuable lesson.
A hilarious romantic-comedy, Oh My Venus shows how great acting, amazing chemistry and a plot that knows where to focus its' strengths can lead to a fun, entertaining watch.
The show's strength is by far the leads, who carry it. The chemistry is amazing, their relationship adorable and believable. So while some other aspects of the show falter -such as the business side - the main plot of their growing relationship flies.
And when you add in the minions of the show, it's that much more enjoyable, as the overall friendships in the show help keep it breezy, fun but also heartwarming.
And despite having a somewhat shallow sounding premise - of a woman whose losing weight to be pretty again - there's a lot of heart. Her reasons for the weight loss is more than just about being pretty, and the romance begins early enough that you can believe it's not happening because she's pretty again, but because the male lead actually, truly loves her.
A great watch for any fan of romantic comedies. Or anyone who wants a fun pick me up.
