Release Date: April 10 – May 30, 2019

Plot

Sung Deok Mi, a gallery curator by day and a hard core fan girl by night. As she runs between her work and ‘hobby’, she takes precautions to ensure that her private life remains separate from her professional one. When her boss Ryan Gold accidentally runs into her while she’s taking shots of her bias’s arrival at the airport, Deok Mi is afraid that he may recognize and expose her as an obsessive fan girl.

Can Deok Mi keep up the dance between these two separate realities?

It’s Relatable

If you are a k-pop fan, then you will be able to relate to Young’s character Deok Mi, even if you are not quite such a hard core fan as she is.

Deok Mi’s room is plastered with pictures and posters of her bias. You will smile as you see her singing along to her favourite pop songs with the music blasting in the car. What would it be like if you saw, or met your bias? Deok Mi will take you on that journey. You will smile and laugh at how she defines what it means to be a fan girl and see yourself in her.

There is a moment in the first episode where Deok Mi catches a glimpse of her idol ahead of the crowd- I couldn’t help but feel a surge of excitement as I recalled my own similar experience at the Pentagon Prism Concert earlier this year when I caught a glimpse of Hui a few hour before the concert.

Take my word for it- if you’re a kpop fan, you won’t be able to keep yourself from smiling and laughing- I highly recommend this drama to you!

Can I Have a Bias AND a Boyfriend?

While Ryan is a little jealous of Deok Mi’s Obsessive love for Cha Shi An, he accepts her and supports her interests. Rather than becoming angry or trying to force her to choose between her bias and himself, he does research and tries to understand her better.

Ryan continues to support and encourage Deok Mi. He learns to understand the different love Deok Mi has for each of them and goes to great lengths to make her dreams come true.

While you may suspect that Deok Mi chooses one over the other herself, she never really makes this decision and remains a fan girl until the end of the drama.

Overall

If you are a fan of Park Min Young, or enjoyed Whats Wrong with Secretary Kim, then you will not be disappointed.

This drama is not about action, mystery or tension – rather you will be able to watch one episode at a time. This does not mean that you won’t want to keep watching though! Rather you can watch it as a healthy pace.

This drama was really refreshing as a fun, sweet drama.

I have never felt so connected to a drama. This drama is cute, relatable, romantic and satisfying. I was laughing so hard the whole time- and THOROUGHLY enjoyed it.

Personally I liked it better than Whats Wrong with Secretary Kim and would HIGHLY recommend it, particularly to those who are also fans of kpop.
