Welcome to Samdal-ri is a new South Korean series starring Ji Chang-wook and Shin Hye-sun.

“Welcome to Samdal-ri” is a simple romantic comedy that we get to experience week after week, without any stylistic pretensions, to witness the evolution of these two beings destined to reunite.

About the series

It is a very classic romantic comedy that follows all the genre’s conventions. It doesn’t rely heavily on humor, even though it has its moments, and when it needs to be romantic, it certainly is, perhaps excessively for some viewers.

Regardless, if you feel like experiencing a love story in one of those enchanting, simple, and welcoming small towns, “Welcome to Samdal-ri” will transport our minds to this little place in Korea where we will surely witness an entertaining story.

“Welcome to Samdal-ri” doesn’t offer anything new in terms of plot and we have seen many series with the same story, but its unique sense of humor is amusing and personally, I love it. The humor manages to twist every moment and transition from a comedic situation to a dramatic one, creating this whirlwind of emotions that has brought great success to the entertainment industry in the country.

Our Opinion

It is an entertaining TV production that, while not going beyond that, manages to entertain (almost exclusively) its intended audience.
