I recently saw the drama The wedding scheme. In my opinion; the whole drama was a scheme!
I started watching this drama because of the title “The wedding scheme” and the description “A mother of four daughters and the president of a kimchi factory decides to embark on a grand marriage scheme for her children… by having them cohabitate with four eligible bachelors.” I wanted to watch something cute and lovey-dovey, so of course, this seemed like the perfect drama!
I was wrong….
But I don’t want this review to be misleading! The drama was good and cute, but the way the drama was advertised and the actual drama just doesn’t fit. The drama is about a mother with four daughters. The mother is the president of a kimchi factory. The factory is not doing well, so they move out of their beautiful home to a less extravagant one and they gain three male tenants who will live with them. The main focus is on one of the daughters who works at the food division of a company that the mother highly dislikes. The daughter is trying to make her mothers kimchi because the CEO of the company loves it and wants to sell it. But her mother is trying everything in her power to not make that happen. Also, the son of the CEO is in the same food division as the daughter and will also become one of the tenants. We know where this is going. (Highly predictable :P)
This is why I say that the drama itself is misleading. The drama is mainly focused on the kimchi factory and the company. 80% of their conversation was; kimchi, kimchi, kimchi. I swear, I almost dreamt about kimchi.
Lol, I’m turning into a nutcase. But yes, the mother does say in one episode that whoever marries first will inherit the factory, but nobody seemed too bothered about it. None of the daughters felt like they had to rush to get married or felt any particular pressure. There is no rivalry between the sisters so it’s a pretty peaceful drama. But I do feel like this drama gave me nothing of what I expected. So even though I still laughed really loud at some parts and smiled at the end of the last episode…..
I still feel scammed!
