Let’s get into Oh My Venus K-Drama Review:

The story is fairly simple but was executed wonderfully. One of the things that made Oh My Venus stand out to me compared to other dramas was the lack of cliches.

I loved how the show could still be dramatic and intense at times but it avoided nearly all of the typical K-drama cliches. Even when they used cliches they were handled differently and didn’t go down the path that they usually do. It was so wonderful!

The story was super cute and had a really good message about health and beauty. and the acting was superb. So Ji Sub and Shin Min Ah had wonderful chemistry and I loved their characters’ personalities.

This show made me realize the importance of chemistry. Honestly, there could be nothing else and just the main couple’s interaction and the show wouldn’t be boring because the chemistry was electric. I loved that there was no drama between the main couple. It was really nice to see a k-drama couple being straightforward and honest with each other.

They worked through their problems together rather than creating more. It was a pleasure to watch a drama with such a healthy (both mentally and physically) romantic relationship in it.

I loved the side characters as well! Henry and Sung Hoon were the perfect side characters and I loved the chemistry they had with So Ji Sub. They’re probably my favorite drama trio! The other cast members played their parts very well too.

For once I didn’t absolutely despise the 2nd female and male leads. They made mistakes, yes. But it was nice that they didn’t constantly try to interfere with the main couple’s relationship. Instead, we got to see them work through their own problems and I grew to kind of like them.

The music in Oh My Venus was super catchy and cute. I liked the use of upbeat and catchy songs. There were fewer dramatic songs and more fun and happy songs. All of the songs on the OST balance each other out and come together to make a wonderful soundtrack.

I was very pleased with the final episode as well (though I didn’t think there needed to be as many flashbacks as there were). This is one of the best dramas I’ve watched in a while.

The whole message of the show is just so positive and everything was so unproblematic. It was a really nice change of pace. My Favorite episode of the drama is episode 13 – Hospital Scene.
