I went into this drama expecting the worst. I mean really…based on the promo pics and those hairstyles, I expected a train wreck of the worst kind. What I got was a light and fluffy drama with a bit of a You’re Beautiful vibe.
The bad: terrible lip-syncing, bad fashion choices (a necklace made of stuffed teddy bears? Really?), too much shouting. Come to think of it, the yelling is one of the main gripes I had about the original Full House. Notice I didn’t list the hair. That’s because once I became invested in the story, I really didn’t care about the hair. It wasn’t great, but neither did I think it was as horrific as a lot of people bemoaned.
The good: No Min Woo. OMG is that man gorgeous. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself:
I’ve only seen him in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, and he was pretty much wasted as the emo vet/half supernatural something that was never explained. Not that this role was Oscar-winning or anything, but it definitely showed me a little more of his acting chops than Gumiho. I definitely won’t look at him the same next time I rewatch MGIAG. I also adored Man Ok’s spunkiness. And Go Dong was abso-freaking adorable!! Can I have my own Go Dong?
This is one of those dramas where you check your brain at the door. Plot holes abound, too many to count. But somehow I found myself enjoying it and I cared about the characters. Think I’ll keep this one.
