K-drama Feels:
  • Chicago Typewriter had it all: romance, comedy, friendship, bromance, sad moments, happy moments, and mystery. Everything was served in the most beautiful way.
  • The beginning might be a bit slow but it gets better the longer you watch. Each episodes always left me with some question and curiosity.
  • I really enjoyed all the characters and the story.
  • The main leads were all amazing in their dual roles, both past and present.
  • Yoo Ah In’s acting was superb.
  • Go Kyung Pyo’s acting was phenomenal.
  • Kwak Shi Yang, as the antagonist, did an especially good job as well.
  • Another thing I fell in love with was the music. Personal favorites : Satellite by SALTNPAPER / Writing Our Stories by SG Wannabe.
  • This drama is so underrated. At first sight you might not fall in love like I did. But give this a chance and you won’t regret it! Chicago Typewriter was amazing and brilliant.


My Rating – 9.5/10 ( Chicago Typewriter sums up into a beautiful story about destiny and camaraderie that surpasses the boundary of time.)
