1. Drama-free, lovely storyline

Our Beloved Summer revolves around the school’s worst student, Choi Woong (Choi Woo Sik) and the valedictorian Kook Yeon Soo (Kim Da Mi). Two people who are as opposite as the Moon – the Sun, suddenly get stuck together when they have to film a documentary. Who would have thought that after filming, the two fell in love and dated for 5 years, until they suddenly broke up for unknown reasons?

5 years later, when Choi Woong and Kook Yeon Soo were 29 years old, the old documentary was “dug up” by netizens and became a phenomenon. The two find themselves in a dilemma when the TV station wants to make a special episode about their lives.

2. Sweet reunion after 3 years

Before Choi Woo Sik rocked the world with Parasite and before Kim Da Mi was the “crazy girl” in Itaewon Class, the two were a beautiful couple in Artificial Assassin. Although in this blockbuster movie, the two fight each other very fiercely, the audience still finds them well-matched. That’s why, when hearing the news of Kim Da Mi – Choi Woo Sik‘s reunion, fans were over thrilled.

Regardless of expectations, the chemistry of the couple has received many compliments, whether it’s when they were innocent students or when they are adults. The acting skills of both are also recognized by the audience.

3. Artful scenes

The 3 main characters in this drama work in the arts: Choi Woong is a landscape painter, Kook Yeon Soo is an event organizer, and Kim Ji Woong (Kim Sung Cheol) is a documentary director… As a result, the drama’s aesthetic value is highly regarded. Everything in this drama, from the workplace, the layout to Choi Woong‘s paintings, is artistic.
