Happy New Year! It’s been a mad dash for me to complete my reviews before I can put out my End of the Year TV Reports and I still got a few more to go. If only I was better at not procrastinating… well, I suppose that’s what new year resolutions are for, right? And still, that didn’t stop me from adding another program to watch on top of what I’m already watching. Last year, I attempted to watch a web drama, Splash Splash LOVE, and loved it. Each of the episodes are about 10 minutes or so in length, they don’t require much commitment and they’re often silly and entertaining. So during the break, I was interested in doing that again and came across Seven First Kisses.
After the death of her parents and her young sister’s car accident, Shim Bo Nui (Hwang Jung Eum) has become incredibly superstitious as she believes that the misfortunes that befall on her and the people she loves is because of her. Her fortune-teller advises that if she doesn’t sleep with a man who was born in the year of the Tiger soon, her comatose sister will die.
She meets Je Soo Ho (Ryu Joon Yeol), the nerd genius and CEO of a game company who only believes in logic and reasoning. After the failure of his last project, Soo Ho desperately needs a new game to develop for his company and ends up hiring Bo Nui. Although Soo Ho finds it difficult to understand Bo Nui’s quirks at first, he begins to open and accept her and she learns to rely on something more than her superstitious charms.
