am getting so excited for this drama I can barely contain my wicked
glee. Why wicked you ask? Because I can already tell that this is
going to be an epic melofest of awesomeness. The type of drama that you
watch while sipping wine (or in my case, Diet Pepsi) from crystal
decanters with all your kbesties. All the while, trying to guess what makjang trope
they will trot out next (in only the best way of course).
from the trailer we can deduce multiple cliches right off the bat. For
example, let's discuss the Doppelganger situation. As i was typing
this post I started to mentally count how many kdramas have mysterious doppelganger plot lines hidden (OK, not so hidden) within the story.
Within seconds I could count 5 shows from the last year or so. Needless
to say, this is a common storyline. One which would concern me if we
did not see that one of the women dies right away.
it just does not make any sense at all that one would not take the
place of the more affluent look a like. Especially if the poor plucky
girl was hounded by a harsh reality that included loan sharks and menial
jobs. In Korean dramas, if you are in doubt of what direction to go,
always choose the road that is paved in gold. And if a uber hot sexy husband
comes along with the deal, then you just have to suffer through it.
win the love of that uber hot sexy husband to be, make sure you either
get sick and require a piggy back ride. Or if you are rich and
sophisticated (rich people have fancy cars to take one to the hospital
so do not require the use of a man's back as transportation), simply
puke on him. Rich, moody, hot men appear to love being puked on. It
somehow kicks in their dormant love gene.
joking aside, this drama is going to be so much fun to watch. The over
the top music, the rich elegance. Even the filming style of the drama teaser
screams posh. So grab your decanters and your Korean face masks and get
ready for some guilty pleasure.
