Rating: A (Excellent)
Rewatch Factor: Medium
Comment: This is a drama that takes a unique look at youth, marriage, and love. It is about reliving the past and rediscovering love. The story is refreshing and the main characters are lovable. It has hilarious, endearing and bittersweet moments as two people slowly find themselves falling in love with each other once again. I love the chemistry between Park Sun Young and Ryu Soo Young. This drama really showed what a fine actor and actress those two are. "18 vs. 29" is a drama for those who are eternally optimist and those who aren't. You will laugh and you will cry, but most of all you will leave feeling satisfy.
