There have only been two episodes but I love what we’ve gotten so far. The characters are great – familiar but still unique.
I’ve seen Jo Jung Suk in a few dramas here and there but none that I’ve completed. But if the show maintains this quality, I might finally end that streak. His character is rude and brash but still lovable and I don’t even mind if the writer manipulates our feelings by making him feed stray dogs. Heck, I even enjoy how he’s working through his Mommy issues. I don’t know if it’s the actor or the character but there’s a pleasant quality that seeps through even when he’s being mean. He’s hard on his hoobaes but looks out for them but it’s no surprise as he was bullied as a kid.
It’s too bad his restaurant doesn’t have CCTV installed but I hope that blogger bitch gets what’s coming to her.
I know Park Bo Young primarily as a movie actress but as I don’t watch a lot of Korean movies, I haven’t really seen her in much. From this drama, I can see why she’s very respected as she’s a versatile actress. She’s playing Bong Sun and Soon Ae as very distinct characters.
I don’t think we got to see much of Bong Sun but we know that she sees ghosts and has low self esteem. How awesome would it be for her to learn that her idol, Sun Woo, visits her blog? She appears to be gone during the possession but I hope that later on, both souls can exist in one body. Or that Soon Ae can learn to exit and enter at will.
I find the Sun Woo/Possessed Bong Sun tandem hilarious. The chemistry is great and they are very entertaining together. Plus now we learn that she can even save his ass in the kitchen. I can’t wait to see what the writer has in store for us with them.
I do wonder what the romance here will be, though. Will he fall for the real or possessed Bong Sun? As it stands, I wouldn’t mind if he and SunSoon are BrOTP while he ends up with his friend, So Hyung. But I say this as I’m not clear on what the endgame is. Regardless, I’m sure I’ll like whatever we get. I think a romance between Sun Woo and SunSoon will be hilarious. lol. I’m cracking up imagining it.
I love the other kitchen staff and his frenemy, Min Soo, is the funniest with his bitterness and inappropriate statements. I’m curious about how he’ll treat SunSoon from now on, given that she’s ‘taken’ his TV spot.
I’m glad that Soon Ae has recovered her memories and look forward to her family’s story. I fully expect her to leave when everyone’s hearts have healed which is why I’m intrigued by the role Bong Sun will play outside of being her host body.
Sun Woo’s brother-in-law is loyal to Soon Ae’s family. Is it because he’s a sweetheart or does he feel guilty for something?
The only parts I’m not really digging are his mom’s scenes with the shaman. I hope they aren’t a constant.
Anyway, these were two great episodes and I need MOAR!
