Full House a Classic, typical k-drama format
Full House tells the story of Han Ji Eun (Song Hye Kyo) being scammed by her friends rather shamelessly, but hits the jackpot by running into actor Lee Young Jae (Rain) who just so happens needs to get married to rid of his scandalous reputation. Then throw in this HUGE MANSION that they are forced to live together in, a love square with the secondary characters (Han Eun Jung and Kim Sung Soo), and Byul singing "I think I love you" every time Rain gets teary-eyed and you’ll have the Korean romance classic, Full House.
Like all Korean romance dramas, I feel that it’s incredibly good in the beginning (something to do with "hooking" the watcher in… Koreans are really good at this), gets a little boring around episodes 8 to 12, then continues dragging the love triangles/squares/hexagons until the second last episode when everything miraculously sorts itself out.
Besides it being a slave to the typical k-romance format, the characters have really good chemistry with each other, although their personalities are, again, typical to the k-romance format. Rain’s character is high-and-mighty, ridiculously rich, but actually a softie on the inside. Song Hye Kyo is your good-natured, feisty, and drowning-in-the-depths-of-poverty heroine. Han Eun Jung is your gorgeous, everyone-hopes-she’ll-die-soon secondary female character that relentlessly tries to steal the main male character away to the point where you go "god! just give it up woman! He doesn’t like you!!" And Kim Sung Soo is the secondary male character with the weird eyebrows that the writers try to portray as the tragic hero, but ends up being pathetic and pitiful at the end.
In all, Full House will give you enough opportunities to squeal at the monitor and go "Oh no he didn’t!", but be sure to have a pillow when you hit the 8th episode…...
