Review:// Beautiful Gong Shim


Beautiful Gong Shim is a romantic comedy centered around a quirky couple who become neighbors. Gong Shim (Bang Min Ah) is an aspiring artist who had to give up on school because her parents invested everything into her sister, Gong Mi (Seo Hyo Rim). As a result, Gong Shim works part time jobs while wearing a wig to cover the bald spot she has developed from being stressed about her future. Ahn Dan Tae (Nam Goong Min) goes around in short pants and sandals, eating convenience store food, and having no memory of his early childhood. Gong Shim finds him suspicious, but is surprised as she finds out more and more about him.

The Good:  The cast is really excellent. Gong Shim and Ahn Dan Tae are adorable and offbeat, evoking many laugh out loud moments. With the addition of the chaebol prince, Suk Joon Soo (Ohn Joo Wan), as the second leading man and bromantic partner, there is a lot of nice chemistry despite many misunderstandings. Gong Shim and Joon Soo's parents are silly and charming as well, The villain in this tale is a formidable opponent, which of course, always makes things more exciting.

The Bad:  It seemed that writer, Lee Hee Myung, was having some difficulty as the drama progressed. There was so much potential for more strife involving Gong Mi, for the villain to be more nefarious at the end, for more temptation by Joon Soo and for a charming and just conclusion for everyone. Everything was set up so well, and the drama ran for 20 episodes, but it spent many hours dragging on the plot involving Dan Tae's mysterious past instead of further developing the various characters and their relationships. I was expecting an emotional roller coaster ride, but the writing lost steam and brought us to a lukewarm and rather forced ending.  In addition, there were a few inconsistencies in the plot, which I won't list here because it's more enjoyable that way for those who might not catch them. 

Despite this seemingly fatal flaw, I would still highly recommend this drama for the sheer entertainment value. The cast is good enough to overcome the disappointing writing and make us love these unforgettable characters.
