Review Eccentric Chef Moon
At first, I thought that this drama was just an ordinary romance-comedy drama, but this drama is quite nano-nano. There are various kinds of stories in it. On the one hand, we can enjoy an awesome romcom and on the one hand, we are presented with a strong makjang story. I didn’t think that romcom and makjang could be combined in one drama so well. When we start to feel diabetes with the romance between Chef Moon and Bella, the sweetness will be balanced with the exciting story of I’m Cheol Yong and Kang Joon Soo’s competition to get Donghan Group. When tired of the chaebol family’s rivalry with this forbidden story, we will be presented with unique Seoha villagers full of crunchy comedy. The combination of many genres and stories in this drama makes this drama rarely boring and makes us curious about the next episode.
For me, this is an underrated drama, which is a shame it doesn’t get much attention. Because this drama has a very balanced and not boring story, besides that the actions of the actors is also quite good. I had thought that if this drama aired on KBS to fill the family drama weekend slot, it might attract a lot of viewers.
This drama Kwak recommends for you weekend drama lovers, even though this drama is not a weekend drama but this drama has a similar pattern to weekend dramas from other local TV stations. Besides that, this drama will be suitable for you lovers of romcom dramas who like intensity and suspense.
