All in all, Our Beloved Summer is a beautiful tale about knowing your worth, recognizing love and dealing with pain, and just knowing that its never to wrong to reach out and ask for help when you need it. It speaks to every one of us, and that is a testament to some excellent writing by Lee Na Eun and directing from Kim Yoon Jin.
As beautiful as the story was, there was one character who stole our hearts from the get go. I loved everyone but from beginning to end, Choi Ung was the best part of Our Beloved Summer.
The Peacemaker, but plotwise, it seems to be going somewhere. There’s also a very stylistic approach to the series and a really cool soundtrack so I’ll stick around some more until I make my final decision.

Sure, there were also some attempts at drama but they didn’t seem to make as much impact because it was really unclear who the real villain of the piece was. And because nothing really surprising actually happens, it seemed a bit derivative copycat of previous sci fi works. The Silent Sea really had a lot of potential. Too bad it wasn’t able to deliver fully on it.
I must admit that I didn’t get to watch a lot of Korean dramas in 2021. I stuck mainly to rewatching some of my favorites because the current trend in romance tropes didn’t quite appeal to me as much this year (although I have a couple of dramas I am waiting to binge). Here’s my list of my personal favorites though and I hope you give them a watch.
All in all, the pacing was just right for 12 episodes but I must admit that I was a bit worried when there were still plenty of loose ends by the last one. Thankfully, the ending was worth the stress. I wasn’t a big fan of the soundtrack though.
Happiness was definitely one of the better dramas of 2021. It begs the question of who the real monsters are when humanity is tested by crisis. Clearly, there were plenty of monsters in this series but not just the neck biting variety.
