Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Kwon Hyuk-Joon's grandfather, the head of the traditional Kwon family agrees to an arranged marriage between his grandson (Lee Dong Gun) and Yoon Jung-Sook (Han Ji Hye) when Yoon Jung-Sook is born. 18 years later, the two families lose contact because soon after the contract is signed, Jung-Sook's family encounters financial issues and is forced to run away. Meanwhile, Jung-Sook has grown up to be a rebellious and strong-willed girl who just wants to live her life as she sees fit. With little aspirations, she is the direct foil of her achievement-bound counterpart, Hyuk-Joon. When the two meet each other, they clash horribly; Jung-Sook thinks her fiancee is nothing but boring, and Hyuk-Joon believes Jung-Sook to be nothing but an immature child. Despite all this they do marry. The rest of the series follows their life living together as a couple, and the obstacles they are faced with.
I think this drama is a really cute one; it’s not very innovative or that hilarious, but I thought the chemistry between the characters was very comfortable to watch. The main characters display the age-difference relationship very well, and maintain their personalities realistically while still making it work. I really like it that they went wham! straight into marriage and fell in love early. I hate dramas where you have to watch 10 episodes of hesitant flirting before they finally fall into each other’s arms.
However, I find the friends of Jung-Sook a tad unrealistically concerned and helpful. Trust me gals, your pals will NOT be so glad to hear you talk about your handsome husband and how you get to laze around all day while they slave in college. Don’t try it at home. The touching scenes did work very well.
Overall, I think this drama is really worth watching. You won’t have to skip the boring parts, because there aren’t any. The sub-couples and even love rivals are fun to watch too; and everyone becomes friends in the end instead of being banished off-screen. That’s my personal taste though. Enjoy!.
