EXO Next Door

Episodes: 16
Ji Yeon Hee is a young girl living an ordinary life. Then one day the famous Kpop group  EXO moves right next door into the house of one of the member's grandfather and are trying to keep a low profile. She interacts and develops feelings for certain members and they they also reciprocate the feelings to her.  

       This is evidently an idol drama that seemed to follow the fan fictions in which the protagonist lives among a K-pop group. In this case, it involves EXO. The protagonist felt very naive in the beginning and not in a good way. The way she acted over buying some pads was ridiculous especially in such a calm environment. There could've been a lot of ways in which she could handle it if she was embarrassed instead of running around and acting like it was the end of the world. She felt like the kind of person who believes the world revolves around her---perfect for a protagonist as the story does revolve around her but at the same time a little annoying. For example, after she bought the pads and felt like everyone was watching her buy the pads, she started to walk home. EXO was already walking to their home when she pops up randomly in the middle of the road and she then she begins questioning why they were following her and she thinks they are going to try to kill her. 
        As the drama continues, I found it hard to really attach to any of the members or the main lead because it just felt so unrealistic and cheesy. I didn't really like this drama.
