My Three Dramas
I spent the afternoon watching in rapt fascination as the whole Myung Wol the Spy thing unfolded. Or should I say imploded? Holy crap, it's like a drama! It's like a drama about a drama THAT'S ABOUT A DRAMA. This is getting so meta it's like universes folding in upon themselves.
Let me just say that until Han Ye Seul jetted off to America this afternoon, I was firmly in her corner, because I think the way they shoot dramas is CRAZY. Like, that story making the rounds while City Hunter was airing about Lee Min Ho performing a stunt and then not getting up off the ground because he fell asleep in the aftermath is funny until you actually start to think about how exhausted someone has to be in order for that to happen. No wonder dramas are plagued with so many car accidents. All the drivers are sleep-deprived!
Anyway, even with the end scene of episode 10, this drama still hadn't won me back (because any time Kang Woo had any sort of back-slide in his development my brain started screaming "AND LET'S NOT FORGET THAT YOU HIT HER!" It's hard to have a character grow on you when you can't forget that they did something heinous (had I already loved him I would have found it that much easier to forgive and forget).
And now who knows? I'm still hoping she returns to the set before the deadline tomorrow, but I think the chances of that are slim. And a recast? Nah... I mean, I'll probably watch it, but more for the trainwreck factor than anything else.
