In a nutshell: An about-to-turn-thirty journalist breaks up with her long-time boyfriend just as she’s finagled into ghost-writing a sex column. Shenanigan’s happen. A simple plot and an easy, fun watch. I enjoyed this! It cleared out the bad-taste left from I Need Romance …and is most likely why I gave I Need Romance 2012 a try. But that’s hardly this drama’s fault.
A few more hazy details: It’s been a while since I watched Twelve Men in a Year so my memory of it is fairly sketchy. I remember really, really liking the best friend and her story line (introducing me to actress Go Joon-hee) and I remember being pleased with the way our protagonist grew and changed over the course of the drama (furthering my love for Yoon Jin-seo, the reason I watched in the first place). I didn’t feel any need to watch it again, but I was glad to have checked it out.
There was very little buzz for this drama and no reviews or recommendations from my usual go-to people. So I risked my viewing pleasure on a cute premise and a familiar actor. Risk rewarded!
