Cyrano dating agency movie review

How can I possibly appreciate Seo Byung Hoon when Master is around?As I said before, the basic premise of this drama means that we get a new love story (with new star cameos) every 2-3 episodes.

She is a bubbly youngster just out of college, and he is a jaded middle-aged man with an increasingly ridiculous bowl cut.She had never seen A Gentleman's Dignity, and she didn't really register the age difference, so I really might be the only one who felt this way. I'm also starting to realize that I will probably never get through a Flower Boy series without a serious case of Second Male Lead Syndrome.I don't know what it is about these shows, but it happens every time (except for maybe FBRS, where the second lead was nice, but the random narcolepsy threw me off).Only the team leader Byung Hoon does not easily give in. There is also the strange but sizzling hot restaurant owner called ‘Master’, having his bistro next to the dating agency.With his downright SM name and his affinity for knives, I wonder what the writers were thinking when creating his character.Min Yeong works as a dating agent and while her field of work requires her to offer her clients the perfect match by levels, she romantically believes that love shouldn't have restrictions.

She risks getting into trouble as she plans a date between a low level class client and a higher rank woman.

This change might have been a way to connect it to the 2010 film on which it was based (Cyrano Agency).

Either that, or the producers realized that a title containing the term flower "boys" was a little misleading since both of the male leads are in their 30s (and Flower Boys Plus a Couple of Flower Ahjussis Dating Agency doesn't have quite the same ring to it).

As great as Sooyoung was, I had a hard time with the chemistry in this show. Yes, the drama recognizes the age gap between Min Young and Seo Byung Hoon (15 years between the actual actors, in case you're wondering), but they don't ever spell out the difference, and they try to balance the characters in terms of emotional maturity.

For me, though, the age gap was a little distracting.

Yes, she confessed her feelings first, but instead of staring into space and crying after Byung Hoon ignored her, she told him to just man up and be more mature about the whole thing.
