First Impressions and Unfiltered Thoughts: Love With Flaws

We here at Dramas With a Side of Kimchi usually give new shows the good ol’ two-episode/two-hour try when trying to decide if a freshly premiered drama is one we want to pursue. However, I felt I had to make an exception for the MBC drama Love With Flaws. I thought the premise sounded promising. BUT initially, I found myself getting hung up on a certain plot device.
