Review: Chocolate (kdrama) EP1 (spoilers)

I went into this without knowing much. All I know is it seems like a sad story and chocolates have a role in this.

After watching, I find a few things heartbreaking such as Kang moving out of his childhood home and moving to Seoul for a better life and also to take over his dad’s family’s legacy. Then, his mom passed away and now he’s a doctor. Even though he’s rich, I can see from the way he conducts himself that he’s unhappy. Also, I’m not a doctor, but I can imagine how hard it is to see people die and know that perhaps you could’ve saved them, but you didn’t or couldn’t. You just feel really bad. The actor portrays his character really well.

What I didn’t quite like is the female protagonist. At first, I wasn’t really a huge fan of her character. I still don’t quite understand if she’s crazy or if that’s just her personality. I’m sure there’s more to her story. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Near the end of the episode, she seemed like a successful chef. But yeah, there’s more to it; I’m still a little confused.

What’s great though is they meet again almost the same way (her eating food that is not hers). I find that interesting and at first, I thought what! they’re going to find each other again that quickly? But then she ends up forgetting who he is.

Also, is it just me or does the female protagonist looks like Kim Seon-ho? They look like they could be siblings.

My prediction for the next episode is that there will be more scenes with Kang and his family. There will be tension and at some point, Kang might just lose his patience and snap. Kang will have more scenes with Cha-Yeong but they will still not know that they’ve already met in the past.

That’s it for this review. I’ll be writing again once I finish the next episode.
