Started watching Touch Your Heart for two reasons. First, I loved Yoo In Na and Lee Dong Wook in Goblin, second, I needed to watch something that is putting out an episode weekly as my life is in super busy, have to meet commitments mode! Lol. I also need down time, and I’ve realized that these dramas provide that for me.
What’s funny, though, is that I started with Encounter and Jang Seung Jo was there — prominently, then he was in Familiar Wife, also prominently along with Oh Eun Sik, another FW prominent character who’s also now a prominent character in TYH. I’m sure that’s probably not all that unusual, but I find it funny in a coincidence kinda way…
Anyhoo, YIN’s character is a has been hallyu starlet who hasn’t worked in two years because of a scandal. She’s also, at this point, getting “older” ( though she looks young as ever) so the demand for her is at an all time low. To make matters worse, she’s not a very good actress, which seems to be an inside joke. She wants this particular role and has to go to “real” work in a law office as a secretary alongside our hero LDW. Of course, he’s not happy at all with this turn of events. The rest of the office staff, aside from one person is enamored with her. She exhibits typical star behavior, but she’s no dummy — just entitled. She knows how to work a room. She’s annoying, but still very cute.
LDW, otoh, is prickly, organized, and expects a certain standard to be upheld where work is concerned. I actually agree with him, especially in a law office, but he really needs to lighten up, if only a little. I don’t find him as handsome here as I previously have, and I really don’t like his banged hair — much prefer it off his face.
I’m really not feeling the current music tracks used in these last three dramas, they just don’t seem to fit, IMO. What I like about this drama so far though, is that it laughs at itself and plays like a movie reel from time to time, with commercial ops thrown in too. Very funny! Hope it continues!
