I Need Romance at Rank Number 4
Now this is one drama that depicted relationships and love the way it is.
No sugar coating, no sweet talking.
It showed both the bad side and the good side of falling in love, the giddiness that comes with a love that’s just blossoming and it’s heartbreaking reality when you take off the rose tinted glasses and are faced with the harsh truths of a relationship.
I Need Romance is as real as real can be.
This drama perfectly mirrored how at the end of the day, romance does matter but it’s not the be all and end all of everything.
There’s still respect, trust, honesty, loyalty, self love and self worth and that without it, a coupling just won’t work no matter how romantic it may be.
Donnapie’s I NEED ROMANCE Top Quote pick:
InYoung: Sometimes he comes to find me. On those days i let him follow me.
I miss the first bus so he can look at me longer. I miss the second bus too. I get on the third bus and sit by the window so he can see me. I know he’s behind me but i don’t look back. He may follow me because he misses me but he never calls my name. Sometimes, i want to smile at him but we don’t make eye contact. He may wait for me until i turn off the lights, but i don’t sleep until i hear him leave.
I hear him leave. I don’t wait for him to come back and he decides that he’ll never come back. It’s a quiet and slow farewell. That’s how it all ended.
Let the tears flow:
SungSoo owning up to his cheating ways and asking for the forgiveness of InYoung’s parents with all sincerity.
Mexican Tamale. Hot and Spicy. Starts off with a kick but comfortably fills the tummy.
They showed Love the way that it really happens.
The good, the cute, the hot, the bad and the ugly.
That unlike in other dramas, it is not all just about rainbows, unicorns and candies.
That sometimes no matter how in love you might be, you still commit mistakes and in the process you hurt each other in ways that one could never have imagined.
Yes, Sung Soo and In Young is an OTP that embodied how a person whom you dedicated ten years of your life to could also be your worst enemy.
An enemy who can hurt you where it hurts and in countless number ways and how despite that you continue to love each other deep inside blindly and foolishly
Even if someone better comes along.
Even if they try with all their might to forget and to move on.
Call it stupid.
Call it martyrdom.
The heart just wants what it wants and sometimes, like them, we just have to eat our pride to make a failed relationship work because real life love takes constant effort to make it work, unlike in fairy tales, unlike in romance books.
