So there’s Eric Moon and then there’s Jung Yu Mi. Both are my favorites. How could I not watch Discovery of Love? You tell me. I first saw Eric’s acting in the ill-fated Spy MyeongWol and then the interesting Zorro-like Chilwu, The Mighty. This guy is hot I tell you. As for Jung Yu Mi, I first saw her in The Queen Of Office and then I Need Romance 2. She did so great in The Queen Of Office that she immediately became my favorite.
What’s Discovery of Love about? It’s about the discovery of love. Really. No pun intended.
Synopsis from KBS World:
A story about a woman who is having conflict between new love and old love.
Han Yeo Reum, who has started her new relationship with a perfect guy, Nam Ha Jin, but her ex-boyfriend, Kang Tae Ha is back regretting his past. “Discovery of Love” is a love triangle story of those three young people.
You know what I find funny? If I watch a drama along with reading the recap, I tend to procrastinate. Yeah thanks to the influence of the re-capper and commenters. For this drama, I did not read the recap and therefore I have no negative thoughts on this drama. It’s all the positive vibe, baby! I love it how they played back the love story of Tae Ha and Yeo Reum from 5 years back. I like the ending too. I wish they have shown more of the present day love story of the intended main couple. Oh no, I’m not revealing who she chooses at the end. Overall, this drama offers you a strong cast performance and wonderful writing. The cinematography is excellent too.
The star of this show is certainly Jung Yu Mi. I love her acting. She can be cute one second and serious the next.
Eric Moon… haa what can I say? Perfect in my eyes. LOL.
