Hello again, Franceska!!!
Having totally fallen in love with the hilarious vampire-comedy, ‘Hello Franceska’ after discovering it while looking into the works of bespecled funny-lady Park Seul-gi (whom I wish had followed her former castmates here. :( ), I’ve been living for the day that we’d once again be able to see the amazing Shim Hye-jin return as the deadpan, ‘don’t cross her because you to may live to regret it’, character that she created as vampiress Franceska a few years back. This time, she’s a fallen angel, but none of that "grant your wishes" stuff is forthcoming from this pixie. Along with her raveness, food-obsessed daughter and fellow fairy (played sweetly by Hwang Hye Seul Hye) these new to earth arrivals waste little time in turning the lives of their host family’s (including ‘Franceska’ alum Lee Doo-il) lives every which way but loose.
After losing their magic cloaks (which apparently allow them the power to fly, among other things) they track down lead man Cha In Pyo (a frustrated performer with a less than talented son) to the sort of Star-Search program that he hosts via a business card left near the scene where the fairies had left their cloaks while bathing.
I’m four episodes in (without the benefit of subtitles) and am already enjoying every second of this unlikey fantasy/comedy. Last, but certainly not least for me, the third former ‘Franceska’ alum whose every scene has me giddy with anticipation is the fabulously zany and, dizty, 40ish girl-group wannabe played by Park Hee Jin. Never afraid to go to great lenths to produce belly laughs, Park Hee Jin’s character is as continuously over the top as Shin Hye Jin’s fairy mother is deadpan. Both of them (and their fellow castmembers, as well) are a joy to watch and the un-needed, but very fitting laughtrack that haunted the ‘Franceska’ series is appropriately back. No great stabs at intellectualizing the comedy are attempted here. This one is made for those who enjoy laughter and don’t need anyone else telling them what is funny.
Welcome back, ‘Franceska’, ‘Doo-il’, and ‘Park Hee Jin’, I can’t tell you how much that I’ve missed you! I only hope that this little ditty will be discovered by the masses and that some brave and benvolent soul will choose to subtitle it in the future. Either way, I’m here for the duration. Come and join in the fun….
