재미있었어! 넘 재미있었어! I slept with a little smile plastered on my face after finishing “Secret Garden” at around 3:30 AM earlier.
It was a good start. I like the interaction of the two lead characters and I so love how cool Gil Ra-In was established. God! I would love Kim Sun-Ah on Ha Ji-Won shoes (warning: you’ll probably hear this from me over and over until the last episode of Secret Garden). But even though I would like it better had it been Kim Sun-Ah instead of Ha Ji-Won, surprisingly, I was not annoyed with Ha Ji-Won (yet?) at all. In fact she really looks so cool! And I am liking Hyun Bin‘s role too – something that I never felt for his character in Worlds Within. Was it because Joo-Won was somehow a bit closer to Sam-Shik? With a little sprinkle of Jo Guk?
It was really fun. A hundred times better than City Hall‘s pilot episode – which is probably the most boring pilot episode I have ever seen.
I can already sense the Kim Eun-Sook‘s magic wand weaving the drama as early as the first 10-minutes or so.
And of course the Kim Sun-Ah call-out was indeed a winner!
오스카: 아, 김선아 씨 대역? 오늘 찰 부탁해요.
거라임: 잘 부탁드립니다.
오스카: 내가, 커피 마실래요? 하면, 운동화 빵꾸 나는 건 아니죠?
오스카: 다음에 찍어요. 김선아 xxx 않아? xxx 머리 계속 xxx 는데.
오스카: 아닌데? 아, 맞다 맞다! 그 영화! ‘웰컴투 동작구’! 10급 공무원이 구청장 되는 얘기 그거! 거기서 김선아 씨 대역맞죠? 어- 여전히 멋지네요, 길라임 씨.
Looking forward to episode two later… after writing my paper – which is not gonna make it to the deadline! 어떡 해???
WORD OF THE DAY:
대역 – a body double (in movies, tv, etc)
