It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about anything other than quotes/paragraphs from Bible plans that I’m reading. So…SURPRISE! Haha.
I have watched a record breaking number of Korean dramas this year. The count stands at 8 (going on to 9 soon)! That’s about 1 drama every 6 weeks? *pats self on back* It used to take me 6 months to finish one drama.
ANYWAYS! 그녀는 예뻤다 deserved a post because it made me smiled, aww-ed and the likes (: I mean Reply 1997 and Misaeng was good too! It’s Okay, That’s Love was awesome too (psychology!). But this one just….made me laughed throughout.
You must first know how much I REFUSED to watch this show because of Siwon. As much as I love him, he can’t act and he has a knack for choosing really corny shows (King of Dramas anyone?). But when CP messaged me and asked if I was watching the show, I thought I should give it a shot (: I did have some issues with how the set looks a little like Ugly Betty but oh well. And there’s some loopholes like when Siwon was skyping, the reflection shows Asian but when they go to the screen, it was 2 Americans. Hmmm.
I won’t give too much details about the show (because you can google!). But here’s an advice – if you are like me, don’t like the backstabbing and misunderstanding, HOLD ON! Just get passed the first few episodes and it will be over and done with. Then the rest of the show will be good.
Siwon finally chose a drama that suits him. He is just being himself or an exaggeration of his frat boy self that it was hilarious. You can also tell that the casts are enjoying themselves because they have all worked with each other before. It’s a joy to watch (:
Everyone will probably be going, “If you are Kim Hye Jin (the main character), would you choose your childhood friend or Siwon’s character?” And that was my initial thought. But I realised…I need someone like Kim Hye Jin in my life. My other half needs to be like her – positive and cheerleader. Because I am like the childhood friend. I am so used to being strong, independent that I am afraid of crumbling. I need someone to lighten me up but not too much (ala Siwon’s character).
I also asked myself, “If there’s a childhood friend that you can meet now, who would it be?” I thought of my secondary school crush and the likes but I realised I would really like to have met my primary school crush – TPL. He has passed on for quite some time now though. I seem to be missing him quite often this year. Maybe because it’s been a nostalgic kind of year and he played a significant role in my P5, P6 and early secondary days. I remembered talking to him on the phone in my room with our siblings (who were classmates) eavesdropping. That was hilarious. Yeah.
And the interaction between the characters when they are finally together is just <3. The teasing, the encouragement and the chill moments of just being quiet together. Awww.
I guess most importantly, this show reminded that I shouldn’t give up hope on having a relationship (: Someday, someone will come by and break down my walls. Hehe. Here’s to hoping!
