Kdrama Review: Moment of 18

Drama: Moment of 18

Genre: high school romance/drama
Starring: Ong Seongwu, Kim Hyang Gi, Shin Seungho, Moonbin, Kang Ki Young
Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

What a delightful drama this was! Capturing the struggles of high school (especially what kids in Korea deal with) in a beautiful way. I loved it.

We have our new kid (of course.. always a new kid!) who starts going to this school, and right off people label him because they learn he was "forced" to transfer.. meaning... there was an incident at his former school and he got kicked out. He is targeted instantly by the leaders of this school and before he knows it, he is accused of theft. Well, he is a chill kid and takes it all in stride and doesn't let anyone get to him. Sort of. That's the front he puts on. But he really struggles. His mom is living in a different city because of her job and he is all alone.

But he does make a couple of friends eventually. The girl who almost ran him over on his first day, and a boy who is sweet to everyone no matter what their back story.

Anyway. We learn about the struggles and the crazy home life (crazy parents) for several of these students, including the bullies. And so then we can sympathize with them all. We root for the romances... all of them. And hope each kid figures out how to succeed.

Kang Ki Young usually plays the quirky friend in dramas, but this time he got
the role of the perfectly awesome teacher.. and nailed it!

The best part of this drama was the amazing teacher character! What a champion for the kids he is! Brought me to tears several times. He is the best! So much fun, and if only all kids could have a teacher like him, yeah? He made the show.

Also Moonbin (from the group ASTRO) played the friend and he did amazing. Like, you should watch it just for him and the key part he ends up playing. He pulled it off beautifully.

Cute Moonbin getting a kiss.

It's a great one for feel good vibes, and a sweet romance. Watch and enjoy!!

A little glimpse:

Our lead is from an idol group called WANNNAONE and he is the most beautiful voice, so of course he sings one of the songs from the drama. Seriously. It's beautiful.
