Crash Course In Romance Review
In one hour and fifteen minutes, we see themes such as the socioeconomic divide, the fancy school system, emotional conversations, and a few sprinkles of comedy.
The setup is quite promising. The execution is also lovely. The drama series’ actors are like the topping on the cake, with Jeon Do- Yeon’s performance. (Who, at first glance, appears to be a jerk but eventually brings empathy into the story).
Furthermore, the class divide between the main characters is another notable feature that will undoubtedly play an essential role in the following episodes. Then comes the reveal of Choi Chi- Yeol’s imaginary pupil, who appears in flashes and moments.
