Is It Any Good?

There's a lot going on here, including a love experiment, behind-the-scenes K-drama insights, language barriers, and even commentary from a couch full of onlookers. Because of this chaos, the decision in Love Like a K-Drama to use Japanese actresses unfamiliar with the Korean language feels unnecessary. The most intriguing aspect of the show is the cutthroat world of K-dramas, yet the episodes the actors produce are also the most boring part of the series; it feels like they're showing only the tail end of a story. Additionally, the peculiar kissing scenes, where actors appear to merely press their lips together, are repeated frequently and may leave some viewers squirming. As one commentator aptly notes, "The people back at the house, not filming, are the ones most likely to fall in love."
