Show Me Love Episode 2 Review: Is It Worth The Watch?

The drama is newly released, so not much can be said about it, but the story progresses a little bit slower. The character development and cinematography are also not so strong, but the storyline is nice to the eyes. However, the storyline and cinematographic comments can not be made yet as the show has to progress with more such episodes, but still, the progression will be a bit slow to watch.

Otherwise, the series is a good blend of traditional techniques and modern stories. The chemistry between actors can be seen both on and off-screen. So, yes, the series can be worth the watch as time passes by and more episodes are released.

Our Rating:⭐ (3/5).
