The Fabulous K-Drama Review
Is The Fabulous Worth Watching? It was a fine watch and had moments of drama, but overall it was a pretty exhilarating show.
Besides the romance between Minho and Soobin’s characters, this is also a story of four best friends. I love that from start to finish the friendship between the four never faltered.
Even if they were all dealing with their own problems, they never failed to show up when others needed them.
I think they complement each other well and the cast definitely has good chemistry. The main cast is great, I have no words for them.
I also love how even the side characters in this show are great, I find myself rooting for them and have no issues with their acting, all great.
It was a light, fun, and fast-paced show about people who lead stressful lives and turn to their friends for comfort.
There’s no set plot, but I honestly don’t mind because it’s just a drama about the daily struggles of the working class in the fashion industry and dealing with the issues that arise.
I feel that the episodes get better as the drama goes on, but also wish the execution was much better. If you’re looking for something light and fast that will distract your mind for a few hours, I would definitely recommend this.

This is a mini K-drama rom-com Netflix that could have been longer as it tackles some important issues in the world of fashion that need to be portrayed quickly for it to come to fruition.
Everything ends so well that it’s very light and easy to watch everything at once. For rewatch value, I may never come across this drama again.
The reason is, if I’m really bored and just want to watch Minho or min kyu then I’ll do it. but to be honest I never re-watched this show. Final score 7.8/10
