I guess that missing you is just my heart's way of reminding me how much I love you. .

I feel that a big piece in my heart travels with you wherever you go.

And missing someone and not being able to see you is the worst feeling ever.
But NO ONE can replace you.

Romance Is A Bonus Book Review

tvN’s Romance Is A Bonus Book has come to an end *sad* also this is Lee Jon Suk’s last drama after he enlisted! But was this drama really that good?

The drama talks about Kang Dan Yi who decides to get back to work after giving it all up to be a housewife but despite her impressive career and excellent educational background, she couldn’t find anyone willing to hire her due to her age and lack of experience! She decides to work at her friend 
Cha Eun Ho’s Publishing Company! Cha Eun Ho is a genius writer and the youngest chief editor ever at this company. He is smart and handsome, he looks cold-hearted but he is honestly warm and have a soft spot for his friend Dan Yi.

When you first read the synopsis, you would feel like the plot is over-used, predictable and it will mostly focus on the romance, but this drama turned out to be more than that, It talked about important things such as how society looks and treats mothers-housewives who decide to go back to work, mothers at work and showed us what really goes around publishing a book, what happen when it doesn’t sell, which I found fascinating because I really didn’t know how these things work, It really takes a lot of work to make just one book! I’m not a big fan of reading but after watching this drama It really made me appreciate and want to read more books hehe

I was truly satisfied with the plot and I appreciate the way it was neatly developed. This drama is the type that makes you feel at ease when you watch it, It was really relaxing as there were no dramas or unnecessary dragging, everything was gradually/smoothly build up and made sense.



The acting was so good, everyone just matched well with their character and brought each of them to life. We saw everyone grow and change in a heartwarming and natural way. They were all unique and had different charms. The leads’ chemistry was so good and I loved how they were caring and considerate of each other, there were no misunderstandings or any typical kdrama problems were it leads to a breakup, It was a mature and healthy relationship. The way the other romantic relationships formed was also really nice and natural. Some complained that the drama didn’t focus too much on Lee Jong Suk and Lee Na Young but honestly that’s what made me love it even more. I just loved how we got to see the growth and lives of each character, It made it look more realistic. I have to say, my favorite part was the friendship. You can feel they truly cared for and supported each other on many different occasions! I wanted to see more of the three ‘club ladies’ but I’m still satisfied with what we got hehe



Overall, this was a well-made, heat-warming, healing and beautiful drama that I truly recommend everyone to watch it especially if you are looking for a soft and light drama. But be prepared you may cry your eyes out in some scenes hehe



My Rating:

Overall: 9/10
Acting: 9/10
Story: 9/10

Romance is a Bonus Book: Episode 16 (Final Recap)



Not unlike a good book, I feel bittersweet about reaching the end of the journey with our publishing heroes. We’ve faced great highs and hard lows together, and I will miss everyone, from sweet Dan-yi and Eun-ho to bickering Hae-rin and Seo-joon, and even spoiled Ji-yul and poor Hoon. But also like the best books, we get an excellent conclusion and the reassurance that our heroes stories will continue, even if we can’t see it all in this volume.






















And now we must leave Gyeoroo and its staff behind, though their stories will never leave our hearts. I know I’m being a little saccharine and sentimental, but I can’t help but feel warm and fuzzy as this show draws to a gentle close. It was honestly everything that I wanted it to be: a poignant but also adorable love story, an office comedy, and even the mystery finally impacted me in the way I wanted it to, so that I felt for Author Kang and the sons he left behind.

We’ve been wondering for a while whether or not Eun-ho was truly Author Kang’s son or just an enthusiastic student of the man, and now that we know the answer, nothing has diminished in their relationship. He promised to be Author Kang’s son, and he upheld that promise until the very end. I am so relieved that Seo-joon never saw Eun-ho as a replacement or unwelcome member of the family, and instead saw how his father, even with his declining health, could want to hold tightly to the memory of Seo-joon but still falter. Even though Author Kang’s memories were mixed up and confused, his feelings held tightly to him, and he transferred them to Eun-ho. I’m glad that Seo-joon was able to find his closure at last, and to even find a “brother” he could trust.

The show has done an amazing job of honoring both the publishing industry and what it does and the people who work in that environment, and Author Kang’s parting sentiments bring these two loves together as one, with people and books both existing to touch the lives of others. It draws out the idea that every person has a story of their own, just like a book, and while an individual cannot change the entire world, it is still significant in the way that others feel comforted by it when they bring it into their lives. Just like Inner Thoughts of Plants wasn’t necessarily a bestseller, it was still a work that deserved the chance to touch the hearts of others. And I really like the final sentiment, that it couldn’t necessarily do it on its own, but with the help of others, our botany book will make it.


Eun-ho couldn’t solve Dan-yi’s problems, nor did he too often make the mistake of trying to. Instead he was there to comfort, to hold her hand, and to make her smile. For others, like Director Ko, sometimes we forget that stories (and people) are important, and instead dive into other pursuits like work. But in the end, everyone at Gyeoroo grows and thrives, even as their stories change.

Author Kang also reminds us that a story needs a beginning and an end, even if the ending is not the one we had hoped for. In perhaps his final moment of clarity, Author Kang realized the importance of recording his whole life, not just the beginning, and how that life and its story impacted others. Because even though many struggled through the end of his tale, in the end when the truth was revealed, he brought people together who were able to console one another.

Let it not go unnoticed that the final shot is not of our romantic couples however, but of Gyeoroo. A place of cherished work, where all of these characters came together to make stories for others, and to make their own along the way.

And so, the show leaves us with one final message at the end of the credits: the moon is beautiful.

5 Times The Finale Of âRomance Is A Bonus Bookâ Gave Us Hope

5 Times The Finale Of “Romance Is A Bonus Book” Gave Us Hope

Mar 21, 2019

It’s hard to believe that “Romance Is A Bonus Book” has come to an end. This also marked Lee Jong Suk’s last project before enlisting in the military this past month. It wasn’t a flashy or crazy star-studded cast, but it was a series that left a strong impression on us all, giving us the strength and hope that was needed. Here’s a look at five times the finale of “Romance Is a Bonus Book” gave us hope.


5. The steadfast love Cha Eun Ho has for Kang Dan Yi

Cha Eun Ho loved Dan Yi with all his heart for basically his entire life. When Dan Yi goes through rough times, he’s always there for her and drops everything in order to help her out.

It was comforting knowing that Dan Yi had a person like Eun Ho. Don’t we all want someone in our lives who would be willing to genuinely and whole-heartedly help us through difficult times? And without expecting anything in return? Cha Eun Ho is that for Dan Yi – when her whole world literally falls apart and she loses everything, Eun Ho is her rock. She’s able to turn to him and he’s able to get her through it, which is pretty awesome.
