Even taking into account emotional caring about the well-being of someone else, from a fight-or-flight standpoint, there's nothing that would make me think anyone would go from fighting someone who was a threat to suddenly "Hey, I'm going to ignore you completely, and present my back to someone who I was just fighting with" just because I hear someone who I love say something and I thought she was in danger previously.
And for a gangster, or any fighter really, you HAVE to detach from emotions to survive. It's very, very dangerous to be doing things emotionally as it'll often cloud your judgment at key important moments. And with a gangster, doubly so, since you'll often be doing things which you might have emotional issues with threatening nice people, hurting other nice people, etc.
Basically, it's really, really, really unrealistic to believe someone could be that bad at surviving and yet supposedly be a bad ass, too. Heck, it's really hard for me to believe that of a normal person, also. I have to agree that some parts were odd. The most odd to me was the one you mentioned, "Or noticing that someone is stabbed, but not doing anything about it besides comforting a girl nor calling But, overall I had a smile on my face from start to end I was the exact same way.
Sure, saving Min-young was important, but there were TWO people there one of which was doing nothing but staying close to comfort her. Instead of watching someone slowly bleed to death in front of them, you'd think Byung-hoon could've picked up a phone to call or the bomb squad or something, lol. What a satisfying ending to such a satisfying drama!
I love the recaps.
Thanks for recapping this series! I really enjoyed it, and it was a nice breezy watch with lots of cute in it.
The detour to terror town was a little annoying, but I went with it, because it did have some nice character points in it. I hadn't connected Byung Hoon's not driving at all with trauma from his best friend dying in a car accident, and him overcoming that I thought was nice.
The whole Seung Pyo lying on the floor bleeding without anyone administering emergency care was silly, and I think that they could have had Arang there somehow for that role, or at least BH checking on him. I get that Moo Jin was a little bit busy trying to immediately disarm a bomb, and that BH was trying to keep MY calm, but he totally could have spared a moment for SP, even if it was shown by SP leaning up against a wall or something when the bomb was diffused.
I was sincerely scared after ep. CDA reminded me of how I felt watching Full House 2 second male lead noble idiocy, a choose your own tragedy variation, male lead who would not affirm his own feelings toward female lead, and satisfactory but not over the top ending. Yep, it was a fun summer rom com of the lighthearted sort. Moo jin all the way - yo, mysterious man of the highest good manners and sincere but understated and hot passion!
Well, Javabeans, you've summed up pretty much how I felt after the finale. The show was light, breezy, and thankfully short. It was the first show in the Flower Boy series that I've watched and it was fun. I wish it had more depth than just skimming the surface of things but it's alright. I don't know if I missed it, but the show never dug into the Hawaiian Shirt guy's past, right? I mean, what exactly did the Agency guys do that made him such a psycho?

How did Hye Ri know him before? Was it like a sudden meeting and they discovered that both of them felt hurt by the Agency?

Also, what about Master's sour feelings towards Byung-hoon? Didn't Master hold him responsible for his brother's death? That stuff didn't even get cleared up between them since Byung-hoon implied that it wasn't his fault. I feel a bit cheated by these loose ends since the show made such a big deal of them before. Yeah, a lot of unanswered questions there, but I guess Master had a change of heart about Byung-hoon due to two things: So in the end, Master ends up with a big case of noble idiocy if you consider it idiocy to hand over the girl you got stabbed for to the man she really loves.
Eh, it wasn't my favorite ending. The first half of this series was soooo strong it set my hopes too high. I really loved how the ending reverses the traditional kdrama cliche of "girl getting surprised by kiss and doesnt know what to do".. Cyrano, overall, was a top notch drama. That dramatic detour in episode 15 was kinda out there but I felt that it was needed to convey the reality of their profession and their clients' romances.
Its not always idealistic, ending in a happily ever after. As much as the agency is able to bring people together, life does go on, and circumstances kicks reality back in. What I love the most is how the female protagonist was written. She also reverses the traditional kdrama cliche of a normal female lead. Her character is solid and honest, which is good to see.
Sooyoung did really well. By far, one if the most talented idol-actresses.
Review: Dating Agency Cyrano
She's a natural talent. I have to admit I felt a little teary when Master said "Gong Stone" haha. C was a cute show but it was rather boring to watch at times, sorry! Also, I was screaming at my screen for someone to call emergency services for Master; damn it writers. In fact, I hated the whole kidnapping thingy and the Hawaiian shirt cray cray dude And even that wasn't a detour to Improvisation Town 'Cause We're Out of Ideas because there were clues all along the drama.
So since the beginning, it was part of the plan.
I guess I can live with that and the good thing is that they made it up to me with The Cute. Overall it was a nice, breezy watch. Cyrano made me laugh, made my heart warm up in some of the cases, and made me swoon and squeal in others. I freakin' giggled like a little girl when they kissed. I was so worried the entire episode, I thought that because of the age difference between the two actors, they wouldn't let a kiss but guess what, I was wrong, hahahahaha: D Seriously, it was amazingly hot. It didn't come as a surprise that Min Young was the one to kiss him because heck, it is Min Young.
But it felt so refreshing in dramaland where it seems like every heroine has some kind of disease when it comes to kisses O. I wish they didn't cut the second kiss though. It was deeper and way hotter I ain't kidding when I say that Dating Agency Cyrano is the only drama of where I didn't skip any parts. After being a fan of dramas for so long, I guess I became very picky and got bored easily.
But I don't lose faith lol. Anyway, it was a really great "feel-good" drama. She had boyfriends before and so, I feel like her loving Byung Hoon is more realistic than most dramaland's lovestories because she had experience and she could tell and be honest with her feelings. A trait where I wish writers would put in their female characters more often.
I didn't like Master because I thought he was just creepy at first but gosh', I've to admire him when he helped Byung Hoon and Min Young's couple.

I clapped like a crazy. He was cool until the very end: In the late episodes, I really wanted to slap Byung Hoon because of his stupid noble-idiocy thing.

Like seriously, making the same mistakes twice is just Luckily, there is Min Young to wake him up. I really love how he whispered his confession to her ear. No other actor could have played Byung Hoon better than him. I was a little bit taken aback by the age difference when they presented the casts but seeing how both of them worked the chemistry so well, I'm feeling so happy and proud: If I was to name one of the drama's flaws, it would be the lack of developpement of Ah Rang and Moo Jin's characters. Luckily, we did get some insights of their lives but for me, I really wanted to know how they met Byung Hoon and what made them decide to join his dating agency.
In this aspect, I felt that the drama was too short. A lot of things still needed to be answered. I like the fact they didn't show us the continuation of the couples. After, it is up to you to make it last.
Though, I wanted to know if Chef Dokko forgave her lover for the manipulation. I think she really reflected and saw his sincerity but at the same time, giving her character lol. Anyway, I'm writting too much as usual but I just want to finish by saying that overall, the drama was great and I'm feeling so proud as a Sooyoungster that she chose that project and that she got acknowledged for her acting skills by critics and viewers alike.
The only pity will be the low ratings but quality is more important in the long term, right? Thank you so much for your recap and for the comments. I found out about your site a few months ago and I'm very glad to be part of that community because it is full of different persons with different opinions. I also liked it and didn't have to skip parts my problem is not that I find kdrama boring, I just don't have patience any more, in general , but where did you find the ratings?
