Okay, count me in. The preview for episode 1 of Wild Romance is out, and I chuckled repeatedly despite my better judgment. This things look funny in a Three Stooges sort of way. I don’t think it’ll be anything deeper than two bone-headed enemies falling in love in between pratfalls and peccadilloes. My koala sense is telling me this will end up being a drama with little to no plot narrative, but coasting on character interactions and chemistry. I figure I’ll watch until I don’t enjoy it anymore, and if I’m lucky, all the wacky will coalesce into something that works and I can enjoy it all. Lee Shi Young‘s awful hairstyle has really stopped bugging me anymore, because she’s just owning it and not letting it overwhelm her great comedic chops. Same with Lee Dong Wook‘s pornstache. I’m actually loving his annoyed and pissed off expressions in all the previews.
