Netflix’s Hello Me Episode 2 Recap: Too Much Drama

- Advertisement -

Hello Me is a South Korean TV series starring Kim Young-kwang, Choi Kang-hee, Eum Moon-seok and Kim Yoo-mi. The series is based on the 2011 novel Fantastic Girl by Kim Hye-jung. Hello Me episode 2 is directed by Lee Hyeon-Suk.

Hello Me episode 2 recap

Hello Me episode 2 sees the two Ha-ni’s meeting each other and understanding and adjusting to their lives together. While the younger one is absolutely (and rightly) confused and tries to go back to her house and school, the older one is trying to understand how to juggle work and keep her younger self safe.

Older Ha-ni has to get back the job that she lost and also cook for her older sister. But younger Ha-ni is not ok with either of these things. It’s interesting to note in this episode that the two women, although the same people, have strikingly different personalities. While the older Ha-ni, beaten down by life and her choices, is subservient all the time and doesn’t stand up for herself at all, the younger girl, not knowing the realities of life, is spunky and full of confidence.

It is no shock that both of them have been pushed towards each other to teach both of them some important life lessons. Both of them need to find a good balance in order to succeed in life, because right now in Hello Me episode 2, their characters are two very different extremes.

Yu-hyeon, on the other hand, gets very little screen time in Hello Me episode 2. There’s not much for him to do, except me an insufferable brat and manipulate people into spending money on him. He feels no remorse and is more of a man-child than anything else. There’s drama at his house as well, with his mother berating his sister-in-law for being better at her job than her husband.

With a genre such as comedy to tackle, Hello Me episode 2 doesn’t incite any giggles or laughs whatsoever. I’m sure the rest of the season will be better (hopefully), but as it stands now, the characters are just so frustratingly annoying that you don’t feel compassion or humour anywhere. The main characters, including the two Ha-ni’s and Yu-hyeon are different versions of children – two of them constantly throw tantrums at not getting their way and one of them is a doormat. The drama, too, is up 100 notches and it just feels very overwhelming sometimes. It also slows the plot down considerably and more often than not you feel tired at the sluggish pace.

Hopefully, the next episodes will look up and be better. Till then, Ha-ni is in for a tough time.

Hello Me episode 2 is streaming on Netflix.

Overall

SUMMARY

Hello Me episode 2 tries its hardest to deliver funny moments but it doesn't turn out well for the episode, considering insufferable characters and slow pacing.
