Synopsis:

Suh Jin Young is an aviation maintenance technician. Her fiance Jae Hoon passed away in a horrible traffic accident.

Suh Jin Young gives him a chance to work under her and they fall in love. However that love is severely tested when they both discover that the Chae Joon’s victim was Suh Jin Young’s fiance Jae Hoon.

I was unable to find a trailer for this drama, so instead I’ll post the music video for the theme song of the drama (“Sarange Michida” by Lee Soo Young). The video doesn’t give too much away, nothing that you wouldn’t find out from the synopsis.

I’m reposting this review on here from MyDramaList (:
My review is clean – as in no spoilers!

This drama is definitely underrated! I started watching it because, well, my screen name is Crazy4you and the name of this drama is “Crazy For You” haha. I realized later that Yoon Kye Sang was also in it, and I was happy to see him in a main role after seeing him in The Greatest Love. The story isn’t anything over-the-top. I was curious to see how it’d turn out, what were they going to do after they realized that the person that Chae Joon had killed was Jin Young’s fiance? (Not a spoiler, it’s in the synopsis and you see it happen in the very beginning of the drama)

The acting was pretty good. Again, I’ve seen Yoon Kye Sang in The Greatest Love and seeing him go from his adorable role as Yoon Pil Joo-ssi to a more serious one makes him a versatile actor. Although his character was adorable at times as well! I want to see more with him in it, he’s a great actor (: And this was my first drama with Lee Min Yeon but I felt she did a really good job as Jin Young and really pulled off her emotions. Also the halmoni is the same one that was in Coffee Prince – I knew I saw her before but didn’t realize until now that that was the drama I’d seen her in. The rest of the cast was great as well (:

I loved the music! I was surprised at hearing such a nice soundtrack to this drama. “Saranghe Michida” (Crazy For You/Crazy For Love) by Lee Soo Young is a really pretty song. I also loved the song “Never” by Yoon Yeo Min! And “Crazy For You” by Mr. Mimi (the artist’s name makes me laugh haha).

I can see myself possibly rewatching this drama again, although not anytime soon that’s for sure (look at my plan to watch list!)

Overall – I think it’s worth giving a try! It’s not overly serious, there are some light moments, but there is a good bit of drama. It may not be the best drama out there, but it’s still a nice drama! So if you think it sounds like something you would like, add it (:

I wrote this  review recently so I don’t have much else to add. I’m still in love with the soundtrack to this drama! They could’ve had a better ending, I will say that much, but it was still a good drama and Yoon Kye Sang was just adorable at times!

“Never” by Yoon Yeo Min

“You Are My Only Love In The World” by Ho Dong

My overall rating for this drama is an 8/1O

  1. Reblogged this on The Dramatards and commented:

    Kicking off our First ever Flashback Friday is Crazy4You’s review of the Korean Drama, Crazy For You. I promise you, it’s just a happy coincidence that this drama has the same name as her!

    A few years ago I, too, watched this drama. And I absolutely loved it. Yoon Kye Sang and Lee Mi Yeon both gave solid performances. Enjoy!

  2. Pliz recap episode 16 someone? Anyone? Please?!!!!!!

  3. That picture at the end is typical Yoon Kye Sang expression, and I love it!! He is a funny actor more than anything, I have seen him in other dramas and I always have a laugh when he is on screen. I think, if Im not mistaken this was my first drama with him, and I did not start this drama because of him but because of Lee Mi Yeon. She is a terrific actress and I had seen her in Addicted with Lee Byung Hun way back when I wasn’t even thinking of Asian dramas… I wanted to watch a drama with her and started this one, later watched other dramas with Yoon because I fell in love with him and his odd expressions hahaha… You should watch Who Are You? Its an underrated drama, in which he is the lead and deals with the 49 days legend as well, but its done in a different way. I highly recommend it. 🙂

    • Haha I love it, too! And yeah he made me laugh and awe in The Greatest Love, I was rooting for him the whole time, but that whole drama in general was hilarious :p
      And Lee Mi Yeon did do a terrific job in the drama! I haven’t seen her in anything else but I should add that movie (: Haha he does have some odd and funny expressions but their so cute! Who Are You? is actually on my next line-up 😀 And I also have the movie Phungsan downloaded (: I hope I can get around to watching dramas at a faster pace, haha I’ve been watching them slowly lately because I’ve been doing other things.
