The Review (Spoiler Free)
I am considering The Best Hit as a perfect romantic comedy drama. Everything about this drama is perfect. The acting, chemistry between all the actors, the story line, and the production quality. There is nothing to really complain about.
There are some interesting surprises I noticed about the drama. I found out later that Cha Tae-hyun co-directed the drama, which turned out to be his first directorial debut. I was surprised to see Cha Eun Woo from popular KPOP group called “Astros” in the drama. Also, Dong Hyun-Bae who is younger brother is Taeyang from popular KPOP group “Big Bang.”
Interestingly, The Best Hits has many of the casts from 2 Days & 1 Night. We know that Cha Tae-Hyun and Yoon Si-Yoon are from 2 Days & 1 Nights, but they also added Defconn, Kim Jun-Ho and few others.
In the Nutshell
The Best Hits is perfect romantic comedy and I recommand highly. I give 5 out of 5.
