The Pharma 5 Watch Guide!

Best Time To Watch:

Although you can watch at any time of the day, the real story and laughter picks up at the start of episode 2. The characters really find their rhythm and everything connects and starts to make sense. So be patient in the beginning.

The LONG PILL:

A surprisingly quiet hit series, that didn’t get the hype that it deserved. People didn’t know how to feel about this drama, and was expecting it to be about something totally different than it is. This is actually a very cute rom-com, with wonderful cast chemistry, and noteworthy comedic timing. I must admit that while watching episode one, I thought this series was going to solely be about a piano player trying to make it to the top… or something like that- but it wasn’t. The piano was a plus, but not the main feat. Every trope that I thought was developing, took a different turn.
Hard Pill to Swallow
Reminiscent of “Cheese in the Trap’s” ending, where you invest so much time into liking characters and storyline builds, only to wonder why the choices that were made at the end, were made at all. The ending did NOT spoil the series for me- I liked it way to much, but it did cause me to wonder what the writer was thinking.

Exam Results:

Infectiously funny and really a feel good time. Go Ara and Lee Jae Wook have wonderful chemistry and comedic timing! Although the ending is a bit confusing, and a slightly different direction could have made for a better grade.
