Words from Me:
Around September of 2003, I watched this drama dubbed in my own language and aired in our local channel with the title of “My Love Cindy” which I really didn’t get because there was a huge difference from the original title. Why did they even change her name to Cindy when it’s easy to say Patzzi which is a very non-korean name? But anyways….my Love Pattzi or My Love Cindy was a Korean drama breakthrough for me. The drama was about a girl who was tomboyish, ferocious and a total klutz. Then like every cliché in dramas the girl falls in love, hard. She then sets her heart out on a chase to the guy she thinks is the man of her dreams yet she didn’t realize there’s that guy who’s been looking at the sidelines, wishing and wanting to capture her attention as well. Thus the love triangle and mishap takes place in this 10 episode drama series. The story line was fun and in a really fast pace, though the conclusion sort of disappointed me since it’s an open-ended kind of finale. Despite that, it was quirky, funny and cute.
Jang Nara was still young in this drama but it was fun to watch her especially Kim Rae Won who was also still a young actor and better looking in my opinion. This was the first drama I’ve seen him in and his acting caught my attention, after that I started following most of his movies and dramas.
Music wise, it was all cute but nothing really noteworthy, I couldn’t even remember the OST tune to this date. All in all it was an OKAY drama to watch but it would be more worth it if you’re a Jang Nar or a Kim Rae Won fan like me. Mostly likely I would re-watch this drama if I have the time.
