SYNOPSIS
Na Ji Young, who avoids relationships with other people, meets her next-door neighbor Byuk Soo, who can't be alone...



REVIEW
Individualist Miss Ji Young is an interesting drama about polar opposites: Na Ji Young avoids having any kind of relationships with other people, and Byuk Soo can't live without being around other people.

I can't really use the term individualist for Ji Young, because I don't think that label applies to her properly. Although she is alone by choice, it wasn't because she was happy being alone. Ji Young doesn't want any relationships with other people because she is afraid of getting hurt when her expectations aren't met and her feelings aren't reciprocated in the same way.

I also can't really use the term extrovert for Byuk Soo because he doesn't really enjoy being with other people, although he is always surrounded by a lot of so-called friends. Byuk Soo wants to be around people because he doesn't want to be left all alone.

I suppose what I'm trying to say is that deep inside, Ji Young and Byuk Soo are the same, although they choose to deal with their issues in very different ways. If you really think about it, a relationship between them might possibly work because they're really quite similar.
