Final review of My Perfect Stranger
- Swoon 9/10 for the second lead couple
1/10 for the main lead
For me the second lead couple, form by Lee Soon Ae and Baek Hee Seop, should have been the only romantic couple.
I felt that the main couple relationship was forced. They didn´t had chemistry as a couple, only as partners in crime.
- Squad goals 10/10
I really liked all the friendship relationships in this story
- Laugh 5/10
As any other drama it had its moments where it made us laugh, but this isn´t a rom-com, this was a melodrama, so being comic, was only to relief some tension scenes.
- Sci-Fi 10/10
This was an understandable travel in time story. It only had one jump in time to 1987, and that´s it
- Mystery: 10/10
This drama really got us thinking all the time who was the killer. When we thought we knew something happened that made all our theories disappear.
- Cry: 10/10
In every episode they kept us crying, telling us beautiful healing stories.
- Plot: 10/10
Really well told story. Nice pace of storytelling.
The writter kept us guessing who was the killer.
The ending, didn´t had much plot wholes.
Sometimes I felt this was base in back to the future movie.
This wan´t only a serial killer story, this drama also showed us how to heal with our past.
My favorite episode was when the female lead saw what happened to his dad and why he became the worst dad ever, in the future
- Performance: 10/10
All the actors did a great job.
For me My Perfect Stranger is a 10/10
