Initially the plot for the overall episode centers around a scheme to take a glance at out and get Bonnie and Soo-ho back together. Ultimately it turns out that this scheme used to bea whole waste of time without a payoff as Bonnie and Soo-ho meet in their own special way. The reunion is if fact exist toldmoderatelycandy and heartfelt. It does a excellentactivity integrating all of thevery bestportions of"Lucky Romance"to bring an superbremaining message about love. Yet none of this adjustmentsthe reality that the whole first part of the episode turned intoa total waste of time.
It's a gorgeous effective metaphor for the overall quality of"Lucky Romance". Whilsthalf of of it's far decent romantic comedy, the opposite half is simplyunnecessary subplots that never move anywhere. Each and every new episode ended in the introduction of a minimum of one new subplot, and the old ones were only ever solved haphazardly. Even main plotlines were very hit and miss. Bonnie offers up on superstition, for example, but the only real explanation introduced is an excessivelyindistinct "power of love".
AdvertisementWhat makes this especially frustrating is that there has beennumerous potentially applicablesubject matter that just went underdeveloped. Imagine the thematic importance of Bonnie's oldsters being dead, I still cannot figure out why"Lucky Romance"was so minimalist in exploring Soo-ho and Geon-woo's circle of relatives relations. Geon-woo were given all of one scene with his father, and Soo-ho's folks spent more time soaring about a birth secret that never materialized than they did with their son.
The leisure of the solid was just more physically provide than they were helpful every bit characters in their own right. Bo-ra is the maximum productive case of this- she's quite literally the physical embodiment of all Bonnie's motivation, yet the last episode is the primary fourth dimension we see the young lady in ample context to get an evenseize of her personality. We do most commonlyto find out what took place to each personbasically because Soo-ho helpfully brings they allin combination in the similar room.
That's what they are there for after all- as bullet issues in Bonnie and Soo-ho's own life, instead ofother folks amongst internally consistent motivation. While this is not a dealbreaker on its own, the time spent seeking tobuilding upthose subplots instead ofcare for Bonnie and Soo-ho's dating as the principlecenter of attention makes too much of the finishing unsatisfying."Lucky Romance"ends, at best, as very well average- a virtually perfectly even distribution between sensible and bad, worthy neither of seriouscompliment nor over the top scorn. It just is.
