Romance Town


Genre: Comedy, Romance
Episodes: 20 
Cast: Jung Gyu Woon, Kim Min Joon, Lee Jae Yong, Min Hyo Rin, Sung Yu Ri

"The story of domestic help who work for rich households. No Soon Geum is one of these housekeepers; despite the master-maid heirarchy, she's bold, fearless, and unafraid of doing hard work in order to support herself. As a child, Soon Geum had dreamt of living a grand life in a Cinderella story, complete with her own white knight, but that dream had faded as reality took over. However, she reaches a turning point in her life when she is hired as a maid for the rich and handsome Kang Gun Woo."

Although the show was worth watching, I have to say that this series has the worst title I have ever seen.  Originally, the title was going to be "maids," which was not that great.  However, there were many complaints about it because the word apparently isn't a great word in Korea.  Truthfully, I really don't know what the big deal is about the original title, as I know very little Korean or it's history.  Anyway, they decided to change it to "Romance Town" instead because of the complaints.  Let me just say that the title only got worse.  Seriously, it sounds like a soap opera.  Maybe this drama is actually supposed to be a soap?

Anyway, as far as comedy is concerned, I wouldn't get too excited.  Although the drama is interesting, there is practically no comedy.  You're better off watching the news if you want comedy.

The thing I hated the most about it, though, is the end.  Can someone say "WTF?"  It's fine if a drama is a little unrealistic, but this one just takes the cake.

What did you think of this drama? Comment below!
