This show is NOT helping my Park Seo-joon affliction AT ALL! Yes, he’s playing a character, just one of many lovely characters he’s played, but having seen him in action on the Yoon’s Kitchen reality show (and it seems very unscripted) I think his basic goodness and yes, manliness, really shines through.
Park Min-young is really the perfect partner too because she comes across so intelligent and feminine and delicate that when he sits her on his lap you just have to swoon at the rightness of it all.
Of course, spoilers after the jump, because I have lots to swoon about!
Just finished Ep 10 and totally enjoyed it, especially the unexpected surprise at seeing… spoilers after the jump!
I really enjoyed these episodes – alot of fun and alot of lightness. I’m loving these zany side characters so much – which is not always the case. I don’t feel that I have to endure them but I can go ahead and enjoy them instead.
Also, I’ve been meaning to say that for the very first time I’m also enjoying the – what do you call it – “sound” accompaniment to the scenes, even the small little extra blinking is endearing. I’m actually surprised at myself because that’s one of the reasons that I haven’t watched the Taiwanese dramas for a while. I can’t abide those over the top sounds that come with the characters – it’s a total turnoff for me but I think it’s because they go overboard and it’s too much in your face whereas here, though it’s obviously there, it’s ‘more subtle and it complements the dialogue rather than overpowers it. Mild spoiler follows.
It’s funny how things happen and that the power has definitely gone over to our dear girl’s direction. Of course, it would have been a little humiliating, to say the least, to be rejected so but I liked seeing her anger come out cause it allowed us to see his version of groveling, LOL!
I’m getting tired of being teased though; much as their longing stares and sudden awkwardness can be endearing it’s also tiring if it becomes too repetitious. So will the real guy please stand up? I can’t wait to hear the truth about what happened that night long ago.
So what do you think of the frugal employee strutting around as if he had 10 suits when he barely has one??
I’m starting a new thread because I wanted to include spoilers in my comments. You know the drill, spoilers after the jump!
Aaahh…. so nice to sit back and enjoy. I’ve seen the first four episodes and have absolutely enjoyed them. This guy… well, what can you say? He’s got such great presence on screen and he’s gifted us with at least TWO shower scenes so far! LOL, I love watching him preen at his own image in the mirror and smile so smugly when he thinks people are reacting to his perfection. I mean really, what’s not to love? Great chemistry with his co-star – this girl has been very lucky so far, starring with a few hunks along the way. I’m still jealous that she got my Healer (hehe) but they play really well off each other and that’s what counts.
As you probably know the plot revolves around their relationship (past and present). She has been his PERFECT secretary for nine years, is a combination of a secretary, valet, butler, social partner at events – you name it – she’s there for him. The poor girl barely sleeps and now she’s decided that she wants a normal life before she gets too much older. Well, can you imagine his shock and dismay! But being the creative genius that he is he implements Plan A to try to change her mind. You can imagine what happens next! But I love those moments of awakening when both of them suddenly see something with different eyes. I love the awkwardness that has crept into their relationship – granted after four episodes I find I can predict the moments to come and my one quibble is that it’s maybe happening too fast? I mean to go from 9 years of this type of relationship to the human one in just a few days seems to be a bit of a rush. I would have preferred if they had taken a bit more time with the growth of the new relationship because as you know for me it’s all about the journey. I never want them to get there too fast.
No doubt there will be mishaps and misunderstandings along the way and we will probably discover that the feelings were there all along, only unrecognized, OF COURSE!!! But still with 12 more episodes to go please take your time… Meanwhile I’ll look forward to more shower scenes and sweet indulgent smiles.
