Chung Kyung is 42-years-old and she is getting tired of her changing body and rocky love life. The four women, each going through a different turning point in their lives, contemplate what they want from dating and love. What does ‘love’ mean to them during this time in their lives? This drama is about the thoughts that every woman can relate to but never could talk about. Let’s contemplate it together.


Happy Women’s History month! We’re starting the month off with a review focusing on the story of these four woman at different points in their lives. I have watched many western dramas in this format with a central story connecting them all, but there wasn’t much of a connection here expect for the point of how flawed human relationships are. I think that overall this is something that I appreciated a lot with this drama and its ability to show us that women are allowed to be flawed creatures.

Twenty-three (23): This story was about a polyamorous relationship except it wasn’t polyamorous in the least. She was just dating three men at the same time and didn’t tell them. That’s cheating. In any case this story was the one that was probably the easiest for people to understand and deal with. One of the things that really stood out to me was the detached way of loving that she had.

Twenty-nine (29): This story begins with a run away bride and we’re taken through Lee Ha Eum’s life. I enjoyed watching this established couple make their way back to each other. I like that the way they spoke about how sometimes relationships are just supposed to be easy and that the comfort that she always felt was because she was with the right person. I think this is my favorite story, probably because we are close in age and I am also feeling a bit loss with a few choices.

Thirty-five (35): This story by far is definitely the darkest of the bunch and kinda stands against the grain. Ban Ah is probably our protagonist that is the hardest to sympathize with. That being said I really enjoyed Ryu Hwa Young’s performance a lot.

Forty-two (42): I enjoy Park Jin Hee a lot and this story really showed how messy and complicated relationships/marriages can become. The cheating stuff was a little bothersome tbh and this story asked us to consider what is morally good in this aspect. I found this story to be the most irritating of the bunch.

There wasn’t any music that particularly stood out and the cinematography wasn’t great as well. However, I enjoyed the acting performances from the leads and I can see why something called Love Scene Number that didn’t have much of the typical love we’ve come to expect in Kdramas in it would upset people. Although I enjoyed it, I think it could’ve been way better. Still, I would say give this a go because this is quick and easy.

Story: 7/10
Acting: 7/10
Music: 7/10
Rewatch Value: 7/10
Overall: 7/10

Fave Song:  N/A
