I love this show. I don't know what else to say. It was cute and not over complicated but it made you feel all sorts of emotions and by the end, you cared about every single character. There was at least one hole in the plot by the end, but I can forgive that because of everything else that happened.
Modern Farmer is a very character driven show which is not an easy thing to do. The characters have to be these wonderful and interesting people or else no one is going to be interested in the show because character driven can often lead to boredom. Putting this one on paper is does sound a little boring. Four wannabe rock stars go to the countryside to farm cabbages. I feel like I could farm cabbages after all the time we spent with them and Man Goo in the field. There is also a girl who will come and the entire time she's there she will either be painting a wall or digging for hidden treasure. That's it. We are also going to be learning about all the everyday people that live in the tiny town of Hadurokri from their past loves to their rivalries with other villages and their farming woes.
There is a Mi Young somewhere taking care of her elderly father as a single mom; there is a Sang Deuk who pines for his first love as his mother desperately tries to marry him off; there most definitely is a Soon Boon who is the queen of busybodies and can't keep a secret and the list goes on. Every single character was unique and you wanted them to be happy and I feel like I could watch Modern Farmer forever if it means I get to watch these crazy people being crazy with each other.
The two things that I had issues with in this story (and they aren't even issues) are the before mentioned plot hole and Hyuk not getting the girl. The hole concerns the whole reason why the boys went to the country in the first place: what the heck happened to Snake? He moved to the countryside to creep on Min Ki and then disappeared. After the boys sold all their salted cabbages they even said that they would donate all the money that they had earned. Maybe Snake got hit by that meteor and that's why Min Ki wasn't worried anymore.
Now for number two: Hyuk. I wanted so badly for him and Yoon Hee to end up together. I felt that the chemistry between them was stronger that Yoon Hee and Min Ki. With all their interactions, I did feel that Min Ki was more of a dongsaeng/uncle to her and Min Ho. Park Min Woo was also wonderful as Hyuk and brought a lot of subtlety and layers to Hyuk's character that you couldn't help but root for him. He seemed so fragile and desperate for someone to love and love him back that I was afraid that he would break if Yoon Hee ended up not sharing his feelings, but he gave his blessing to Min Ki and Yoon Hee in the end, so I guess it's okay. I guess.
I would totally watch this drama again it was so fun and heartfelt and I will miss all the characters. They are my new drama friends and I wish them the best of luck in their future drama lives!
