(Though reviews are inherently subjective, I prefer to provide some organization to my opinions through the use of a personal rubric. The following notes may contain spoilers.)
Plot and Setting: 3.8 -- Plot mixes cliche/overly convenient with unique/interesting. Has some shaky bits and a slight lack of focus. Setting is clear and believable. Timeline is clear and consistent. If you're okay with some suspension of disbelief, this is an entertaining little story. And it honestly is a pretty good representation of K-drama stories in general, which I happen to like. Woon and Jenica run into each other by chance not once but twice, because of course they do. And they basically fall in love at once, without realizing the feeling is mutual. Then they do battle with a greedy corporate maniac, emerge victorious, and all is right with the world. It's a whole lot of action for a novella, plus most of the action is in the span of a few days. Not stellar literature, but entertaining.
Characters: 2.8 -- Main characters are mostly relatable, realistic, interesting, and/or dynamic. Minor characters and villains are almost exclusively stereotyped or simplified. Relationships between characters are not especially well developed. I appreciate that Jenica and Blain are given unique personalities, but I wish there was more development of the other characters. Especially Woon. I'm not really clear on what makes Jenica fixate on him so quickly, and then fall in love. Um, he's handsome, and a talented performer. He helped with her sprained ankle, and drives a rickshaw like a maniac. What else does she really know about him? Not much, as far as I can tell.
Mechanics and Writing: 3.8 -- A handful of typos, punctuation issues, or word errors. (<8/100 pgs) None of the errors seriously hinder understanding. Good use of POV. Average writing, with strong parts and parts that struggle. Errors include: compound/hyphenated word confusion, mild punctuation or formatting issues, occasional use of a word that is close but not quite the right one. POV is all first person Jenica.
Redeeming Value: 3.8 -- Incidental uplifting themes or lessons. Drugs, alcohol, violence, etc, are not glorified, though there is some shaky ground. No explicit sex scenes. Implied moral guidelines for behavior. Very clean, with just one kiss at the very end. Several kidnappings/being threatened at gunpoint/hostage situations, but the good guys only resort to violence to protect themselves. Several characters are willing to risk their lives or their careers to help each other. Themes of friendship, and that money and fame isn't the ultimate goal.
Personal Enjoyment: 3 -- I liked it. It was enjoyable and entertaining. I wouldn’t mind re-reading it someday, but it’s not a priority.
Exciting read the you won't want to put down.
