7 First Kisses (Korean Drama 2016)



Min Soo Jin is a receptionist employee at Lotte Duty Free mall who meets a fairy and grants her wish to meet a boyfriend. Due to this, she will be able to meet a guy seven times, however if the guy ends up kissing her the magic spell will end.

Words from Me:

I got trapped into watching a commercial video for Lotte Duty Free that lasted for around ten minutes each episode just because there were popular main lead actors in it. I guess I’m really a sucker for good looking guys. I mean come on! It is freaking Lee Joon Gi, Park Hae Jin, Ji Chang Wook, Kai, Taec Yeon, Lee Jong Suk and Lee Min Ho! Where else can I see these hot guys in one drama? It’s none other than this darned Lotte brand Commercial. Yes, it was a brand cm. Anyway… now that you know the reason I watched it I’d like to dive into the drama story which by the way was full of cliché. Every episode had an unbelievably common storyline that it easily ended up being funny. The narrative consisted of the following – the boy next door falls in love with his childhood girlfriend, rich guy falls in love with a commoner then insert with some hilarious makjang (heavy melodrama that consists of mothers paying off their son’s girlfriend just so she would leave him including water/wine throwing kind of drama), action melodrama about secret agents who work together and end up falling in love with each other, normal girl gets to meet an actor and fall in love, noona love (a younger guy falling in love with an older woman) and not to forget! Popular guy meets an ordinary girl trope.

If those aren’t cliché enough in drama world… then I don’t know what is anymore.

I’m having second thoughts on recommending this because of the misleading title but anyway, to be fair to those who are interested for the same reason I have for watching this, I give this drama a 6/10. 4 points solely for the good looking oppas, 1 point for the sound track which was really cute and memorable and 1 point for the comedy. It did make me smile all throughout the drama even though I sort of cringed at some scenes. Despite that, I really enjoyed the eye candy. I also liked the female lead Lee Cho Hee and hope to see her become a female lead in some future romcom drama because she’s really effective in those genre.
