There is a strong sense of deja-vu lately, starting with When a Man Loves posters, and now both Jang Ok Jung and Gu Family Book is giving me whiplash. When I saw the first teaser from JOJ yesterday, the scene where Ok Jung is taking clothing measurements for King Sukjong was lifted from Arang and the Magistrate when Eun Oh took measurements for the ghostly Arang to make her new clothes. GFB also cribbed from Arang in the new stills of Lee Seung Gi‘s Choi Kang Chi sitting on the roof looking down (at his first love played by Lee Yoo Bi), which was the first still released from Arang that showed leading lady Shin Mina as the titular spectre. I remember so vividly because I was so excited about Arang I gobbled up everything related to that drama before it premiered. I’m more relieved that the first OTP stills from GFB showing Suzy and Seung Gi’s first meeting doesn’t immediately bring anything to mind, though I remember Hong Gil Dong had quite a few scenes between leading lady Sung Yuri and both leading men Kang Ji Hwan and Jang Geun Seok that took place in a Joseon abandoned warehouse of sorts. Though its new that the leading lady is poking a guy she’s rather curious about and then gives him a smack in the face afterwards when he protests. I think GFB sounds cute, looks cute, and has the potential to be all sorts poignant and funny if done right. I want to keep my expectations low since I think the high expectations I had for Arang was one reason the drama fell flat for me, and so far I’m doing a good job of not freaking out in excitement over every little tidbit coming from that drama.
