Cheongdamdong Alice is far and away my most anticipated upcoming K-drama in the horizon, even adding in the dramas already announced for 2013. It’s Moon Geun Young‘s comeback drama two years after she did Mary Stayed Out All Night with Jang Geun Seok, which was really a drama that worked for me solely on the performance of those two adorable urchins in their quirky roles. I have to admit that the utter frustration with how M3 devolved into absolute insanity (though the ending was lovely) was part of the fond memories I had of watching that drama live, since it was a collective headdesk experienced by all and sometimes one just had to have a sense of humor about it all. I’m hoping this time around the drama is both a success critically and commercially since I’m rather tired of the Moon Geun Young is the best thing in crappy dramas reputation she’s starting to cultivate. The drama just started filming last week and the first BTS stills leaking out show Geun Young dressed in a bear costume and dancing in public. Without any context I can’t comment on anything other than to scream with joy with I saw none other than Nam Goong Min standing next to her. Kyaaaaaaa! Omo omo omo, Nam Goomg Min has a cameo in the drama playing Moon Geun Young’s ex-boyfriend. Actually he starts off as her boyfriend, but in her quest to become a Cheongdamdong Cinderella she dumps him, and that is where I go “WHO THE HELL DUMPS NAM GOONG MIN?!?!?” Her character must have brain damage in the drama. Though dumping Nam Goong Min to angle for Park Shi Hoo does sound like a fair enough trade in quality of male gorgeousness. If you add in Kim Ji Seok, who plays the second male lead in this drama, I swear Moon Geun Young must’ve won some sort of hot co-star lottery. I’m so happy for her, and can’t wait to see her back on my screen come early December. Can Five Fingers end early?
