I can’t believe how excited I am for a drama about getting a second chance at a first love with a cast of youngsters which is based off a drama I didn’t like all that much the first time around. I guess it’s the Yoo Seung Ho love overwhelming my senses. Co-starring Park Eun Bin as the titular first love who is the target of Yoo Seung Ho’s Operation Proposal, the second trailer has been released courtesy of Dramafever, where this drama will be available for watching when it starts airing in one week.
After viewing the second preview, I’m even more certain that this adaptation will deviate from the J-dorama feel and careen towards the K-drama tendency to dump massive amounts of pining, longing, and repressed angst into the show. On one hand, that makes it different enough not to feel like a retread. On the other hand, it might sap the cute fantasy what-if ambiance of the original, rendering it full of too much pain and thereby more depressing than it needs to be. I’m keeping my hopes up because I already adore the OTP, but good golly you better not screw this one up, Korea.
