” My only complaint is that the second episode drags a bit, getting a tad too enmeshed in its own atmosphere and forgetting to actually move the plot forward all that much. Even so, the good definitely outweighs the bad so far”.
“You take my breath away: and not just because you are nibbling on my neck”.
“It was just so bad that I wanted to stop watching it all together. But I continued on and hated it even more”.
“Since this is all about vampires and high-school kids, it’s not gonna be everyone’s cup of tea. And if you haven’t taken a peek at the original web-toon by writer Seok-Woo, you might want to check that out, it’s a fun read.”
“I have a good feeling about this one, guys. Orange Marmalade’s premiere episode strikes a balance that seems note-perfect so far, setting up a world that’s sweet and normal on the surface, but conflicted and troubled underneath”.
” I have to start by saying that these first two episodes cracked me up. Despite the seriousness of the discrimination in the story, there was a lot of humor too. The opening certainly caught my attention”.

“The beginning was just ok, then we got the Joseon era which I enjoyed, but it seemed like a drama got into a different drama and then the last episodes when we got back to the real time and we were given some quality episodes from a romance/fantasy drama“.
“It’s not a uniquely written drama but the structure feel familiar and safe. While the drama does deliver on its emotional elements, it’s important to note that overall the emotional depth of the drama only goes as far as the level of a teenager”.
“The show is cute. As cute as its rather nonsensical name — why call a vampire show a bread spread?“.
” I’ve been waiting and waiting for another kdrama to truly grab my interst and Orange Marmelade seems to be it. Of course, it’s a bit early to say for sure after just 2 episodes, as things can yet go to pot, but I love what I’ve seen so far”.
“I haven’t had the chance to really identify the ones I want to follow, but had an inkling that the high-school/ vampire/ romance Orange Marmalade would likely fall under “easy to watch,” hence it wouldn’t be so taxing to do a recap (which I’m still mulling over)”.
“Even though parts of the webtoons are not included, and certain things are different, so far I really like the drama”.
“At first glance, the show is nice but it seemed that the characters were a little all over the place but probably in the next episodes we will have a better outline. Again, I didn’t read the manhwa thus I’m trying to keep a somewhat distance since the drama already has a sketch behind”.
“Now I find myself craving for more after episode 2 ended. It felt not enough. To wait another week for the continuation is going to increase the anticipation.”
“Anyway, I am excited! Basically, my first impression is YES PLEASE GIVE ME MORE”.
” This webtoon turned drama has captured my attention for now!”.
“No matter what happens I loved the first two episodes and I am a little depressed that this is only a once a week drama. The chemistry between Yeo Jin Goo and Seolhyn is great and the other actors are also doing well thus far.”
“I love the lighting, how bright it is, and, to use an apt but overused term, everything is bathed in light. It almost has an ethereal glow. It really adds an interesting level to the fact that this is a story about a bunch of vampires”.
“I loved each and everything about it! Maybe the dearth of teen dramas for so many months is having its effect and making me tickled pink on watching Orange Marmalade“.
“Here we are again, watching another high school drama, with most of my wishes granted! 1.Yeo Jin Goo 2. Vampires 3. Music 4. 97 Hyung (Song Jong Ho) is a VAMPIRE!”.(also unnichan)
“My expectation was set up really high when I started watching Orange Marmalade. Yeah, the drama is completely off from the original and now it is heading to an unknown territory“.
