I have to say I’m not exactly a fan of sageuks (Korean historical TV dramas for the uninitiated) but I do love some fusion in them (Sungkyunkwan Scandal, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) and the new JTBC drama Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency looks like it is fitting that bill.

It was love at first sight for me when it comes to Yeon Woo Jin, from the moment I saw him for the first time in that lovely, sunny opening track of Marriage Not Dating and since then, I always get excited to see him in something new.

It looks funny and encompasses one of my favourite tropes — workplace and romance-comedy.
