Raise your hand if you’ve been here with me since the beginning. You know, when we sailed the non-boating waters of the adorable Playful Kiss, when we railed over the insanity of attempting to off Jang Geun Seok in the schizo and chemistry-laden Mary Stayed Out All Night, when we braved the withering disdain over even daring to like the swoony Lie to Me (what? I love it. So?), when each time I’ve turn rabid for a drama, it’s all I can write about. Of course this fervor for The King 2 Hearts will gradually dissipate after the drama ends (as it always does), but I’m basking in this experience while it lasts, an overwhelming excitement for what’s to come plus an affection for what’s already come to pass. It’s just so much fun to spazz about what moves me, but with TK2H, what’s even better is how good the drama actually is. I can spend days discussing side characters and dissecting plot points that converge into brilliance. For now, I spend my days trolling for anything and everything TK2H.
We’ve got ourselves a royal engagement, people! I can’t say seeing spoilers of this was anticlimactic since we knew they were getting engaged after the production released information asking for fans to attend the filming of said engagement. Plus the proposal this week just sealed the deal. Even knowing its coming, seeing pictures of it just takes my breath away. Hang Ah and Jae Ha are the OTP of my heart. Doesn’t hurt they are so pretty together and individually I start cooing over them.
Ha Ji Won’s engagement dress is magnificent – elegant, luxe, and fits her perfectly. Paired with her arm candy in Lee Seung Gi in his kingly attire, they definitely exemplify the regal aura we’ve now since come to expect from them.
This would be called the “money shot” in production parlance. Or as I call it here in the playground “#*@^$%&^*%$^*@#(^%&”, which translates from Koala speak as “KISS KISS OMG KISSING!” And Seung Gi’s hand on Ji Won’s waist pulling her closer is just ridiculously sizzling.
This drama has seriously re-activated all my long dormant princess fantasies from childhood. Can anyone blame me? Who’s not swooning when the King looks like new and improved Lee Seung Gi?
