My First First Love

I have finished watching My First First Love on Netflix (in May 2020). I must say, there are several moments that made me feel giddy, happy, and reminiscing. It’s not like there’s something similar to any of my memories, it’s more of being able to have a sense of being young again through the lives of this group namely:

  • Yun Tae-o
  • Han Song-i
  • Seo Do-hyeon
  • O Ga-rin
  • Cho Hun

The story revolved around the friendship of Yun Tae-o and Han Song-i. They have been friends since they were toddlers and they practically grew up together having stayed friends and almost neighbors. Like the typical love stories revolving friendships, both Tae-o and Song-i are oblivious about how they really felt thus, trying to have their own separate relationships albeit, proven to have failed due to their unrealized love for each other. Anyway, I am not here to spoil the fun. What I noticed in love triangles among good people (had to put it that way because there are triangles of which one at least is evil), there’s always someone who makes the one being sought for feel sucked into a blackhole full of problems.  Do-hyeon for example was introduced as this handsome friend of Tae-o, someone who perseveres for his family and education, someone who is helpful, caring and selfless; being friends with Tae-o would indicate a similar personality as Tae-o, fun and cool. Do-hyeon falls in love with Song-i, he becomes this overly caring, suffocating and gloomy version of himself thus making his meet ups with Song-i quite tensed and frankly, too depressing.

Chloe's Questions

I think that was Do-hyeon’s effect on Song-i. It was stressful and sad instead of a happy new love. I forgot the movie or show from which I have heard that if a relationship doesn’t make you happy from the beginning, end it. The start should be the happiest and if it starts with gloom, it’s nothing but disaster bound.

I love this kdrama. It has all the first love thrills and got me feeling all these feelings which I am sure everyone who is fond of kdrama is yearning for. I wished it had been longer however, I am taking it back since making it longer could make it lose its luster because the shortness of these dramas make all the difference. I mean compared to telenovelas that go on forever.

Anyhow, I give this 4 out 5 stars for the giddy feels.

  2. The guy wearing green polo looked familiar. I think I’ve seen him before in a drama, but I can’t figure out which one. 😅

    The drama is interesting. Very relatable. Love your review! It made me want to watch it. I will definitely add this to my never-ending to-watch list since I saw that the second season was already released last year pa pala. 😂
