Secret Garden, episodes 1 to 4

YES! Guilty pleasure drama!

Lemme preface by saying that this story is flawed in many ways right from the get-go, but it’s really fun to watch, mostly due to the chemistry between Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won. Oh and, HYUN BIN! I’ve forgotten my massive crush on you. What the hell happened to your face, though? Why is he so gaunt, bone-y and skeletal? It’s upsetting!

I’ve never watched Ha Ji-won in anything, but I expected her to be great, and so far she hasn’t been a letdown. Not the most challenging scenes, but she’s holding her own and I’m sure her character will get better as we go along.

Baek Ji-young’s “That Woman” from the soundtrack:

I think the song is a little too heavy and hovers on being downright misfitting in meaning, but it’s such a pretty song.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!

Heart palpitations, guys

I don’t know about Jino yet, but I am so so so so so so so excited about Kyuhyun, Jonghyun, and Jay singing songs together that my mind might explode. I think this group is going to work really well because there are at least two deep voices (Kyu & Jay’s) and one higher one (Jonghyun) and just…OMG! I’m a little afraid that this is just gonna be a battle of who-can-hold-higher-notes-for-longer (which you can already kinda hear on the track) but who cares!

And this song sounds a little like the groovy “Sorry Sorry (R&B version)” that I so liked. If we get more of the R&B and less of the typical Korean ballad, I am all. on. board.

(This is missing some Junsu though. Damn him for wanting more rights and crap ;))
