After three straight episodes of body-switch antics, Secret Garden is finally heading into the meat of the drama, IMO. It’s weird – eight episodes has lapsed, and I still don’t quite grasp the story. Perhaps its the mad genius of Kim Eun Sook, or a total lack of focus on her part.
I have to say that SG may be the most polarizing drama this year, with most of my drama friends either loving it or hating it. M3 doesn’t get quite that level of dissension, partially because most of my friends don’t care enough to even watch it or have a strong opinion. SG is one hot potato, that’s for sure. My own opinion is less certain at this stage. I find myself loving and not loving the drama, from moment to moment.
