FIRST IMPRESSIONS: I Need Romance 3 (Episode 1)


I Need Romance 3 has started airing, and from the first episode itself, I’m not sure if I would like it or not. It wasn’t exactly what I expected it to be, weirdly.

I Need Romance 1 hook me up instantly at it’s first episode, but this doesn’t. I would need a few more episodes to see what I feel about this drama. I like the casts, but while watching the first episode, I have a little bit of doubt whether Sung Joon and Kim So Yeon will have chemistry. I really like her relationship with Nam Goong Min though, who plays her sunbae in the drama.

I’m not going to do a recap, because honestly, I found the first episode quite mediocre, or rather boring. It was like an extended version of the trailer I saw. Nothing special to be excited about. However, I’ll keep a little hope that drama brings back those awesome girl-friendships and adorable OTP moments for this one too.

If I remember correctly, season 1 second female lead didn’t receive hate from me – I can’t really remember clearly, but it looks like I will hate this character. Hahahaha.

  1. I actually agree with your post. Watching this left me disappointed with the hype I anticipated. I felt like I was watching the extended episode of the trailer. Though the cinematography is beautiful, I just don’t like the camera-pacing back and forth between faces which made me dizzy and lose interest. This first episode is not as catching as the previous INRs’. Maybe after watching episode 2, my mind will change, as usually, most dramas first episode do not captivate at first.
