I admit, early on in my drama watching, I actually sat through the entirety of Full House Take 2. And I enjoyed it. It wasn’t that it was good, it wasn’t. but it was so delightfully cheesy and over the top that is was, at the moment, exactly what I needed. Plus, it was before I learned the wonders of dropping shows. I am grateful that I caught it as early as I did because it gave me a lot of context in the landscape of Kdrama as well as serving to introduce me to the brilliance of Park Ki Woong, whom I’d later adore in Secretly Greatly and Hwang Jung Eum who was in pretty much everything for a while.
There are a million different love songs across pretty much every genre of music from every country in the world. That’s a lot of love songs. So many of them are pretty and touching, but not really that touching. I’m sure a good percentage meant a lot to the person or people that put pen to paper and crafted all of the little nuances, but they don’t all speak to me. I guess that’s one of the things that makes music so interesting, while one person connects with a song wholeheartedly, another might not feel a thing when it pops on the radio.
After featuring Kim Woo Bin last week it didn’t seem right to not highlight his own noona romance with one of my favorite Korean actresses. I first saw Shin Min Ah in Oh My Venus and it still ranks as one of my favorite dramas. I’m not big on rewatching kdramas and there has been a number of times I’ve been tempted to go back and rewatch it. If you’ve been hesitating, stop and go watch it (Stephanie, again I’m looking at you).
