“”Sensible Love” is, true to its name, surprisingly down-to-earth considering it’s obvious reliance on genre trappings. It’s achieved that rare feat in a story- told us exactly what it’s planning to do, and expecting us to hang on simply because we want to see how”.

“My hopes for this drama are perilously high. Its premiere effortlessly blends traits from two of my favorite shows—the magical realism of What’s Up, Fox and the naturalistic reality of Answer Me, 1997“.
“For a first episode, this was pretty good. I’m just nervous at what’s to come once the cheating takes place”.

“Il Ri insists on having her way, she pushes herself into places where she’s not necessarily welcome, and she’s unapologetic about her actions“.
“I have a feeling this drama will unfold in an unconventionally interesting way”.

“‘Sensible Love‘ has problems with its plot and was ultimately betrayed by its length. A disappointing failure to reach its full potential, the series nonetheless has some great things to show. Whether those are worth the process depends on the person watching “
“So, I just finished watching Valid Love. So beautifully acted; beautifully written; beautifully filmed“.
“While I really did find Valid Love enjoyable to watch, I just wish it wasn’t so underwhelming. Never the less, I think it was mostly successful depiction of how differently people can interpret what makes love valid to them”.
“All the co-actors and actresses add depth to the rich drama in their own ways, strengthening the story line such that the audience are in empathy with them. Even the SIL in her vegetable state contributes so much to the story that credit must be given to the script writer”.
“Why does it have to be so difficult at times to write about something that captivated you? “
“Valid love continues to be hard to read, not that it’s abstract, it’s just that I can’t fully grasp and interpret the motivations behind these characters”.
“The illicit affair makes up only part of this ambitious story. It isn’t just about falling in sinful love, but the consequences of our choices, as well as how well or badly we deal with things that just happen to us”.
“How strange and interesting. Valid Love, the long awaited comeback project for the writer of the impossible-not-to-love classic My Name Is Kim Sam-soon, premiered on cable network tvN earlier this week, and the result may leave you as cautiously optimistic as you are vividly unsettled”.
“The first episode is NOTHING like the dire and off-putting description given earlier, where Kim Il-ri (Lee Shi Young) claims that she loves both man, her husband Jang Hee Tae (Uhm Tae Woong) and a younger man Kim Joon (Lee Soo Hyuk)”.
“I thought the writer did a great job in showing the backstory first, and the character Il Ri. It’s hard to like a character who love two guys and can’t make up her mind – but I love Il Ri already”.
” What could have been an excruciating melo may in fact become an exploration of human desire and love“.
