Next Wednesday is going to be a throwdown for primetime K-dramas with three new offerings premiering on the same day. I was planning on watching the sageuk with pretty people, but will now add the goofy Wild Romance to my plate since the second teaser just released is starting to grow on me. I like that this drama has no chaebols, likely no birth secrets, disease, or trauma, and generally appears to be a straight up rom-com with a heavy dose of the comedy to start everything off. It’s endearing to see both Lee Dong Wook and Lee Shi Young go all out on the physical comedy element since you can’t try to look all dainty or too cool when the story calls for the absurd.
Lee Dong Wook is looking mighty fine as a baseball player, mostly because he looks relaxed in character and not his usual uptight emo character type. I like.
