Resurrect Unscathed, Show, Please!

The good news is, Han Ye Seul may still be playing Myung Wol.

The bad news is, well. What a MESS.

Who knows, right? I suspect it’s harder for American-raised people to deal with the kind of communal-suffering type schedules they work with in Korea–going MIA to LA may have been the only way for her to avoid a breakdown, just a gambit to get to *have* a weekend. It’s still a MESS.

I doubt if it’s going to be giving Eric Moon the same passion to play enemies to have reason to resent her, unlike a certain Kang-Woo-nnie. Ugh…and I was looking forward to things heating up, too.

On the upside, I watched Ocean’s Eleven yesterday.

ummmm YES

Hello, Myung-Wol the Spy. Hello, my crack of the summer.

Zany, is the word for the set-up on this show.

(Isn’t it curious how many excellent words for varying shades of crazy we have in our language?)

JavaBeans and girlfriday of DramaBeans.com were discussing how it’s an unusual note for a K-Drama to strike, this intentional-camp-and-pastiche with over-the-top plot points being integrated into a coherent plot. The craziness they love of the Hong Sisters’ dramas is similar (You’re Beautiful, with it’s meta-awareness at points, was pretty fun) but not quite the same.

Does it make sense that the North Korean spy-girl, who is so conservative and military-issue she’s never had a crush before, wears the cutest shorts with her button-up shirts over tees, and schnazzy (but not stiletto-heeled) boots?

Not really. And yet…yes.

She’s so clueless, she’s cute in a way that can be conceived as accidental.

I’m pretty sure this is why “top star Kang-Woo” can’t get her off his mind.

He’s the one *I* can’t get off my mind. With half his clothes, I want to avert my eyes (it’s like seeing someone trying to mimic G-Dragon’s fashion sense without access to the actual designers)

one begins to wonder why he doesn’t spend MORE than a quarter of the show in that classic jeans-and-wifebeater combo he works like a boss.

And then you remember it wouldn’t be so hot EVERY TIME, if absence didn’t make the heart grow fonder.

But really now.

This guy’s charm is not like Lee Min Ho, and suits may look cute on him, but they’re never going to fit his actual personality.

whereas this combo is SO him. a little childish, a little all about himself...
