Spoilers ahead! You have been warned.
Pride and Prejudice centers around the lives of a group of prosecutors who work together so justice may be served. In all honesty, I have one word to describe this drama: daebak. Because that’s what it is, amazing in so many ways.
I am a sucker for dramas that confuse and make me think, and this one didn’t disappoint in that aspect at all. Everything just blew my mind and how this drama’s writers were able to put everything together like how they did it just left me in awe. A *round of applause* for them, please.
The whole cast from the main characters to the supporting characters were amazing in their roles. But our ensemble cast left me wanting for more. I look forward to every scene the whole public welfare team comes together solving crimes, and fighting and putting bad guys to jail. Their teamwork, chemistry, and group dynamic was so fun to watch.
Choi Jin Hyuk aka Goo Dong Chi will always be one of my fave Korean baes, one of my first actually and he didn’t fail me in this one. He totally delivered and I fell in love with him more, even realizing why I loved him in the first place. He wasn’t acting, he was the character. He was Dong Chi and I felt the sincerity of his character.
The lack of romance in this drama was just perfect. With its genre and exciting scenarios it presented on screen, I definitely didn’t want it to be disrupted by misplaced romantic scenes (although some were). Nonetheless, whenever Goo Dong Chi (Choi Jin Hyuk) and Han Yeol Moo (Baek Jin Hee) appear on screen, their chemistry cannot be missed. Speaking of chemistry, our second lead couple, Lee Jang Won (Choi Woo Sik) and Yoo Kwang Mi (Jung Hye Sung), made sure they weren’t left behind.
They were so fun to watch that most times, I look forward to their scenes more than our main couple’s. They were funny, sweet, and their push and pull was too funny to be missed.
Another pair that didn’t miss out on the chemistry note was Goo Dong Chi (again!) and Kang Soo (Lee Tae Hwan). Their friendship was so heartwarming and add what they have gone through (teen Dong Chi saving young boy Kang Soo was everything omg) to that and you’ve got a through thick and thin friendship.
The intensity of each moment, of each case they took on was just mind blowing. It kept me on the edge of my seat, it doesn’t matter where I’m sitting on! It kept me confuse and thinking and begging for more even though I don’t understand what’s happening some other times (guilty!). How everything was stitched together was just amazing and how the characters were all connected in one way or another just kept my mouth shut.
The characters’ heartbreaking connections was too much for my heart to handle but still kept me going. How they were all connected through such heartbreaking demises was amazing and heart wrenching at the same time. The whole drama got me all what the freaking frack for most of the time.
The ending was a big question for me. There were answered questions but it still left me more unanswered questions. How the last episode was presented was so confusing that I started to question if I missed an episode or if there was something wrong with the way it was edited. But nonetheless, it didn’t disappoint me and still kept my head spinning.
This is one of the dramas that kept me wanting for more because of all the questions I have in my head but leaving me contented with how things were left off because I want to believe that the characters’ lives go on without it appearing on my small screen.
