Premiere Watch: Call It Love

Time slot: Wednesdays
Broadcaster: Disney+
Genre: Romance, melodrama, revenge
Episode count: 16

Reasons to watch: We’ve had a string of melancholy dramas lately, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t high time we had another story about revenge plans thwarted by the unexpected complication of falling in love. Lee Sung-kyung plays our wronged heroine, while Kim Young-kwang is the recipient (or not!) of her revenge scheme. Being a big fan of both actors, I can’t wait to see them as leads here.

Even more interesting, though, is the attention PD Lee Kwang-young has paid to capturing the feel of the script. She described the drama as having “a reddish sunset glow,” and that this aesthetic decision was all about landing the tone of the story — viz., expressing the emotions of the characters as they interact with the world around them. It’s also noted that this is not a drama that focuses on the actual carrying out of revenge (ahem, The Glory), but is more about the solace and hope that are possible even when you’re wronged and hurting.

TL;DR: Healing romance melo, Lee Sung-kyung, Kim Young-kwang, reddish sunset glow
