The written previews for Secret Garden really are the pits. It’s poorly written, and rather pointless since it gives nothing meaningful away. But since we’re all addicted and anything is better than nothing at all, I bring you the collective written previews for episodes 7 and 8, which will be airing this weekend. Let me preface by saying that so much of what is happening now is physical situational comedy, even a well-written preview doesn’t make much of an impact.
[Edit: I keep getting these hilarious name references clogging my mind when I say their names: Gil Ra Im – everyone knows she’s Key Lime, Joo Won – I keep wanting to say “you won!”, Yoon Seul – c’mon!, in a body-swap drama, her name is literally “your soul”, and Oska, well, he’s just a dude who didn’t want to be called Oscar.]
Written preview for episode 7 of Secret Garden:
Yoon Seul accidentally sees Ra Im and Joo Won embracing. She uses a very cutting tone and tells Ra Im – what type of education and ability does Ra Im have that she can carelessly throw herself at anyone? Seul solicitously asks whether Joo Won has been frightened by this whole incident with Ra Im?
A person who doesn’t know that Ra Im and Joo Won have changed bodies tells Ra Im (in Joo Won’s body) that even though he’s just pitying her, he needs to be clear about it. Ra Im hears this and pretends that she is okay, but she feels the hurt inside.
Written preview for episode 8 of Secret Garden:
Joo Won asks Ra Im (they are still switched bodies) whether she can like Oska as a man. Ra Im candidly explains that whenever she felt tired and worn down, she would listen to Oska’s music to compose her mood. She likes Oska as a fan. Ra Im feels very happy that she has this opportunity with the body switch. Joo Won’s expression shows that he thinks she will regret having their bodies switched.
Joo Won (in Ra Im’s body) meets someone who has prepared a document file. That person has prepared a guarantee and tries to obtain Ra Im’s fingerprint. Joo Won (in Ra Im’s body) decides to read the paperwork first. That person is shocked at how petty Ra Im has become. Joo Won asks the person whether he intends to prepare such paperwork each month, shocking the person into silence.
Yeah, I have no idea what I just wrote either. Whatever, bring on more hijinks! A few spoilers that have been floating around says that they will switch bodies twice – which I take to mean that they will switch back, and then switch again sometime in the future. I’m deathly curious about the whys. Aren’t you? If cancer or any other deadly illness rears it ugly head in this drama, I will be hella pissed.
