The trailer for the Korean mini-series ‘Tinted With You’ shows an art student transported to the past, the Joseon era to be precise, and falling in love with a good-looking royal. And that’s pretty much the story! Despite having two timelines, not much happens. It’s so generic that there isn’t much to say. If you read the synopsis of the drama on ‘My Drama List’, you’ll know the whole story and it actually makes series sound way more interesting than it actually is.
Like with most Korean series, the leads Ju and Yoo Hyun Woo look out of a K-pop band, but they somehow lack charm, or maybe it is just me. Although, in most K-Dramas, even with a boring script, the protagonist manage to hold your interest with their acting or their persona. Also, for a period drama, the sets looked very artificial and cosmetic.
Basically, ‘Tinted With You’ is probably fan-service for those who would like to see a simple, fluffy romantic series about two gorgeous people falling in love with each other. If that’s what you are looking for, stream it.
It’s 5/10 from me.
