Romantic-comedy series Ex-Girlfriend Club just wrapped two weeks ago on tvN. And Song Ji Hyo’s appearance will always steal my heart.
I’d like to admit that: Yes, I watch this series because of Song Ji Hyo. She has stolen my heart since Emergency Couple. Unlike other female actresses, she doesn’t bother on how she will look like on screen—I mean how she dressed. She’s really into her character. Her messed up style really catches my attention. And I like that.
First two episodes tell the story of Kim Soo Jin (Song Ji Hyo), who is a film producer that works in an almost bankrupt company. She’s prepared to do whatever it takes to save the company. Therefore, she accepts the assignment to produce a webtoon adaptation. But to her horror, Soo Jin belatedly finds out that the webtoon artist is her ex-boyfriend, Myeong Soo (Byun Yo Han).
Not only reluctantly working with her ex, Soo Jin also has to face that the company she works in has a lot of debt to pay. And as the movie starts shooting, the project also brings Myeong Soo’s other ex-girlfriends back into his life all at the same time. With unique personalities, these Myeong Soo’s ex-girlfriends—which includes an older wealthy divorcee (Jang Ji Eun), a chic and successful woman who works at an investment firm (Lee Yoon Ji), and a third-rate airhead actress (Hwa Young)—bring another problems and delays the movie’s production.
Although I just watched the first two episodes, I kinda know how the drama will end. Like other K-Dramas, this one may end with the main female and male leads fall in love. However, what I like about this drama is that the drama isn’t a drama where big things happened, like other typical K-Dramas. This is a rom-com drama which focuses more on everyday interactions and relationships, peppered with some seriously gut-busting comedy. It’s light and the plot flows smoothly. Afterall, it is worth to follow the series until episode finale.
