Dare To Love Me Episode 1 Recap

The romantic comedy-drama began by featuring the female lead going through a hilarious situation. Hong Do proposed to the male lead several times in five different languages. He politely rejected her in the same manner. According to the male lead, it is inappropriate to fall in love with his teacher. Although the female lead begged him to accept her proposal, he continued rejecting her.

The KBS drama then took the viewers through the romantic journey of Hong Do and Yoon Bok. It introduced the male lead as a scholar from a small traditional village. He came to Seoul in search of a criminal who illegally traded several valuable commodities from the country to foreign citizens. Yoon Bok unexpectedly met his teacher in front of a restaurant and helped her.

The premiere episode of this mini-series featured several hilarious moments between the onscreen couple. It also featured the struggles of a young man who lived in Seoul wearing the traditional attire of a Joseon scholar. Hong Do dealt with a cheating boyfriend in the first episode. She considered the male lead as her savior.

This drama is hilarious. I enjoyed the first episode. Hong Do is such a mood and Yoon Bok is so cute. I'm rooting for them already.

I liked the first episodes of #DareToLoveMe. #KimMyungSoo and #LeeYooYoung are delivering with chemistry and performances. The story it's fun and interesting, especially thanks to some subplots I'm looking forward to seeing how they will develop it. A good start!

KBS2 drama #DareToLoveMe, Ep 1 earned the lowest rating in that time slot this year. But... I have a feeling this one will be a sleeper hit, as it had me 1 minute and 50 seconds in when the waitress said "Miss, please take the aggressive confession somewhere else".
