First Impressions: We Broke Up

It’s been a few months since I’ve watched a good Korean drama. The last drama I watched, ‘Temptation’, left A LOT to be desired in my opinion, so I took a break. Watching dramas takes a time committment that I don’t always have, so when I found out that my favorite Korean male vocalist was in a web drama, I was very excited. At around 15 minutes per episode, this little web drama is perfect for getting my Korean drama fix met without taking up too much time!

“We Broke Up”「우리 헤어졌어요」is a YG Entertainment-produced web drama based off of the webtoon of the same name starring WINNER’s Kang Seung-Yoon and 2NE1’s Sandara Park.  It tells the story of the characters who were once in love but have since broken up and are forced to remain living under the same roof.

The drama has the typical Spring drama feel with fresh outside shots, an enjoyable soundtrack and a good cast.

Sandara Park and Kang Seung Yoon’s characters are clearly established in the first episode – you get a sense of their personalities right away. It will be interesting to see how they grow from this point. Also, by the way they set up the story, you’re curious to find out the fate of the relationship as the story progresses, despite the drama’s title.

And to much of the fan’s delight, the drama is released already containing English subtitles – something that is just unheard of! Thank you, YG!

I was pleased with the first couple of episodes so I will be contiuing the story to see what unfolds. I’d definitely recommend it!
