Alright, first review! Coffee House happens to be one of my favorite dramas ever, and I think it is underrated so I decided to put up this review. I’ll describe my process of writing these reviews. I don’t practice review techniques, so whatever I say about a drama comes purely from my gut and my opinions. I’m writing as a fan, not to get paid for it. Don’t take my reviews seriously! I rate dramas out of 10, and I do go with the .5 system even though that might be counteractive. The way I see it, two dramas may be an 8 in production value, but I will like one better than the other. That .5 actually represents my preference. There are spoilers in these reviews. I somehow can’t find a way to write about something without referencing the things that happen in the drama. You’ve been warned, so beware and enjoy!

Jin Soo is completely crazy and whacko. He has issues, and instead of dealing with them, he suppresses them by acting out and torturing his secretary and sunbae. Continue reading
