"Love Alarm" featurette

Jung Ga-ram couldn’t stop reading the webtoon when it first came out. Kim So-hyun praises the director for her guidance and raves about the chemistry between the cast. Song Kang had so much fun filming that he’d rather be on set than at home.

Watch the behind-the-scenes magic that went into the making of LOVE ALARM...

Premiered on Netflix today!

I just watched half the first ep, it's rather slow and moody/melancholy. I'm not sure I have the headspace right now for something slow, but I hopefully you all will watch and tell me if it's good for future watching.

but I am a sucker for teen romance, so I may watch it all tonight after swimming. or that moment of 18 show.

I watched it all yesterday - I felt like I couldn't understand any of the characters actions at all, it was very over the top. Mostly it was A+ concept, C- execution. Do love the platonic relationships in this show, though. They were very nice.

I ended up watching more, and wow is your characterization correct. People are really one dimensional or just opaque. Like why are they all into her, especially since she sort of just became the girl who stares and has a mean family.

I'm interested in the boys relationship, but also, why would he go after the girl his one and only friend likes? It's weird and unclear.

Yeahhhhhhhhhh. There is a lot of 'Love Alarm says you like this person and that's that' without any real justification and I'm like 'uhm. okay? that person is an awful human being tho and you know it, but you still like them because they're pretty??? okay...?'

Yeah, it's a lot of nonsense. And the stupid motivations for the break and problem between all three of them.... And D+G, I had wanted him and Jo-jo to become real friends.

And yet it sucked me in enough to finish it. I'm so annoyed, and so annoyed that I have to wait for part 2. I don't think I would naturally finish 16 episodes of this.

Right? I didn't understand Jojo's motivations for ANYTHING. Also CALL THE POLICE ON YOUR DAMN COUSIN

I mean, the first season probably had three episodes worth of flashbacks, so it's probably only a 5 episode long show 😂

I watched episode 8 today in about 15 minutes, since all flash backs. And what a stupid final 10 minutes.

We'll have to reconvene to discuss when the second half comes out, if either of you us can be arsed to watch it.

On the petty side, I hated her makeup. Her white face against her neck was so stark. Blend people. Blend! Or don't use such a different color foundation.
