Drama Review: If We Were A Season

If We Were A Season (2017): Follows the first love between childhood friends Hae-Rim (Chae Soo-Bin) and Ki-Seok (Jang Dong-Yoon).

My rating: 3/5 stars (★)

I think many KBS Drama Special have great content and plot, including If We Were A Season. Initially tried to watch this because Chae Soo Bin is in it, and I found out that it is one hell of a cute drama! Since it is a drama special, it only has one episode.

The plot is a cliche, high school friends who are childhood friends falling in love with each other in secret, but never admitted it. It's fresh seeing how dumb silly and impulsive Jang Dong Yoon's character is after being used to his serious attitude in School 2017. Ki-Seok seems to always be around whenever Hae-Rim needs him, or sometimes, even when she didn't need him. He's a very gentle person, though he always hide it by trying to bicker with her. It was painfully obvious how much he cares for her.

As for Hae-Rim, I absolutely love her character! A badass girl that is fine to be on her own. I like how feisty she is when she's around Ki-Seok, she never hesitated to kick his ass even once. The kind of friendship that I love to see in dramas. And of course, a cliche high school love story is not complete without a third person. Come in Dong-Kyung (played by B1A4's Jinyoung), a new student from Seoul, who immediately fell for Hae-Rim's charms. He's a very straightforward person, and even though I think that's a good thing, he made things awkward too.

Despite the cliche plot, I did enjoy watching it. It can be due to the fact that I love most of the cast in this drama, or it can possibly be because I have watched too much heavy and emotional films lately that all I need now is something light. So yes, if you feel like watching something light, If We Were A Season is definitely a nice one. I have to be honest that I don't understand the reason why Hae-Rim denies her feelings, but I'm glad how the ending turned out. Their story has not ended yet 💗

Till next time ♡ Love, Maira
