tvN’ ‘Reply 1994’, showed the skill of further upgrading the proprietary ‘Tsundere’ character. He led the play by portraying Noh Hui-o’s change with romance and comedy, but with deeper eyes.

Oh Yeon-seo also completed her acting skills as Lee Min-kyung, a woman with a complex story in her delightful comedy. As the play progressed, the character, which might seem like a nuisance character, was supported by the viewers, thanks to the actor’s acting skills.

The story of a man and a woman who meet and quarrel with each other and finally achieve the fruits of romance is the basic formula of many dramas. ‘Crazy X in this area’ is also a drama that follows this formula.

However, that alone cannot explain all of this drama. Because when the outer layer of comedy is peeled off, there are stories about prejudice and discrimination, and furthermore, it speaks of understanding and belief.

The female lead, Lee Min-kyung, is a woman who puts flowers in her hair on rainy days and wears dark sunglasses on days when there is no sun. This woman, whom she does not want to get close to just by making an impression, is a stranger who suddenly moves into an apartment in Hongjik-dong.

Lee Min-kyung, who builds fortress walls herself and does not interact with her surroundings at all. She said that his behavior was literally ‘provoking anger’. He assumes that someone is harassing and attacking him and takes a defensive attitude, is suspicious of others, and reacts sharply to everything. He is often referred to as ‘paranoid’ or ‘crazy X’.

Noh Hwi-O, a man who is unable to ‘control her anger’, pays a harsh price for accidentally meeting her. His already angry expression and actions arouse Lee Min-kyung even more, and he even goes to the police station due to misunderstandings.

There are a lot of things about Lee Min-kyung that are hard to understand with common sense. Her overly defensive behavior of not thinking of others at all, and when she receives damage, she panics and acts as if entrusting Noh Hui-oh with a ‘reckless’ favor.
