Challenge: Day 20 – Most Underrated Drama


I’m choosing The Girl Who Sees Smells (Sensory Couple) as my underrated gem. This drama is based on a web-comic (which just about every K-drama is nowadays, hehe) which I haven’t seen, but tells a story of a girl who can visually see smells and track them. She meets a young rookie police officer who has no sense of touch or pain in his body. Together, they solve a major serial killer murder case that the heroine's past is tangled up in.

Though this drama’s story can be simplistic at times and there are missteps plotting wise, this is such a cute, funny and even at times intense drama. The hero and heroine are absolutely adorable and have so many great lighthearted and comedic moments. The villain is chilling and even intriguing as we try to figure out what drives this serial killer and what made him like he is. Though the show could’ve given us more answers at the end, it’s still an exciting and satisfying ending that brought the drama together.

  1. I love this drama although the crimes are a bit gruesome but the leads make up for it. actually, I do not notice any lags in the story/plot, I thought it was pretty well done plus I really like how they visualize the scents - not too cute and not too harsh. it's worth watching.

    have a lovely day.

  2. This drama is one of my favorites of last year! I am biased though, as I want to have Yoochun's babies. But still, it was surprisingly good! And I don't like Nam Goong Min all that much, but I really loved him as the villain! He should always play the villain in dramas, I liked him so much more as a bad guy than I ever do as a romantic interest :p I agree about the ending not giving us enough answers. Like really, how does he die without telling us why or how he chose her parents, or really telling us anything about his prosopagnosia, or giving us any good motives, other than because he was sociopathic. I like a little more rhyme and reason to my baddies!

    1. Ever time I watch a drama with Yoochun, I love him more as an actor. He's just so natural on screen. I'm a big Nam Goong Min fan, so I'm good with him playing either, though I do think he has a natural talent at playing baddies.

      And yes, I had a lot of questions I wanted answered. There were a lot of intriguing questions about him that the drama could've explored. Oh wells. Still love the drama. :D
