I was impressed by the sheer vulnerability potrayed by Sam Soon( and 김선아), and all women of all ages and sizes could FINALLY identify with the heroine's predicament and dilemmas. This drama and of course, Bridget Jones. *happy thoughts about darcy*
That was also the first time I saw Daniel Henny's acting. He was raw, too good looking for my liking AND he can't speak Korean . "What is this?" I thought to myself. The least you can do is learn the language, right? Well, thank goodness, he heard me. His acting and Korean in Spring Waltz was way much better.
I had the same thought about 김현정. I thought she laughed too much in Sam Soon. And cried too much too.....but when I watched her in Star, I realised that her smile and tears are her signatures. So, watching Sam Soon again, this time....I kinda like her now.
This drama also introduced me to 김선아. I think she;s a brilliant actress. She was believable in S-Diary, tough in She's On Duty *happy thoughts about Gong Yoo*,
Remember the 8 reasons why women of a certain age can't find the right man? Here's the list , credit to Mauwy.
No 1 Nice men...are ugly
No 2 Good looking men...are jerks
No 3 Good looking and nice men...are married
No 4 Good looking, nice and unmarried men...are useless
No 5 Good looking, nice, unmarried and rich men...are not interested in us
No 6 Good looking, nice, unmarried, rich men who are interested in us....are flirts
No 7 Good looking, nice, unmarried, rich men who are interested in us and faithful...are gay
No 8 Good looking, nice, unmarried, rich men who are interested in us and faithful and heterosexual and would not lose interest in us even if we are the one who make the first moves...these men must be crazy!
Anyway, If you have not watched this drama, please head on to the nearest video shop ajumma. It's a must see. It's a one of a kind, brilliant drama. Spoiler: The other guy and the other girl ACTUALLY got together at the end! How rare is THAT??
