that man oh soo kdramaSummary: Oh Soo is a successful IT specialist but also the descendant of a family who was fated to tend a mysterious tree that releases magic pollens.

Trailer : That Man Oh Soo

Genre: Fantasy, Romantic Comedy
Episodes: 16
Stars: Lee Jong Hyun as Oh Soo
Kim So Eun as Seo Yoo Ri




Likes: I love the idea of a cupid tree. It gave the drama that whole msyterious feel. Like, you don’t know if the tree is going to love you or devour you. It was changing from being colourful to dark then back again. Pretty unpredictable. The set – the traditional house with the tree in the yard – was also quite charming!  Glad someone so handsome was living in it :).

Lee Jong Hyun looked great and his melancholic role here suited him well. I also liked his chemistry with Kim So Eun.

Kim So Eun has become a better actress since BOF. She looked pretty and well-toned as shown in the beginning when she was doing fitness. I like her bubbly role here. She didn’t seem to run out of something to say.

Kang Tae Oh as Kim Do Yun, the second lead. His being a secret chaebol didn’t help him getting the girl but he won my heart. He’s a good actor, very natural and charismatic.

The kiss. We had the first teaser on the first episode but the real one happened on the 9th episode. I was about to complain but the kiss was great so I’m good :). As I have mentioned above, the two top leads had a great chemistry so kissing scene was to look forward to.

Aside from our main couple, we’ve got here two supporting couples which were cute and entertaining. Honestly, it would have been completely boring without these diversions.




Dislikes: It was the most disconnected storyline I ever watched of a drama. Lacking a lot of explanations, like something just happened that way and this way. The pollen mystery hadn’t been explained properly until the middle of the drama. It was quite confusing. Even at the last episode, there was no clear explanation how he lost his memory and how the two leads reunited. So are we expected to come up with our speculations?

The story was quite slow and in the end, it failed to progress. The roles failed to progress as well. Such a pity because I had the impression that it had a great potential.

My Rating: 6.5 stars! (10 as highest)
