I’m sorry, BUT COME AGAIN? So Ji Sub? In a Hong Sisters drama? With Gong Hyo Jin as his leading lady? Okay – Officially Mind Blown. I know the majority of the drama watching world is still pissed at the Hong Sisters for last year’s Big, and perchance they did bite off way more than they could chew. But I was one of the few who loved it for the little tiny thing it did right in creating a very compelling OTP for me in teenager Kang Kyung Joon who borrows his older brother’s body and ends up falling for his fiancee Gil Da Ran. What can I say, I was lost at the very first stare from Shin under the umbrella. Back to this casting bombshell, never in a million bajillion years would I imagine moody, broody, melodramatic and angsty So Ji Sub starring in a Hong Sisters comedy. This is a guy who made eating ramyun sad for me forever more! And you know it’s going to be a comedy, those two never veer from the playbook even if Big was surprisingly serious at times. Looking back towards all their dramas, this is also the first time they have recycled a leading lady, which is Gong Hyo Jin who did their Best Love with Cha Seung Won. That was the most anticipated drama for me back in 2011 and I liked it well-enough when I watched it but ultimately the disparate chemistry between the leads ended up mellowing my high and the drama ended on a low note. At least Gong Hyo Jin must’ve loved working with the Hong Sisters because she’s back for more (pleasure? torture?). The drama is tentatively titled The Sun of My Master and is slated for a Summer premiere on SBS. Here’s the kicker – it’s being called a “scary romantic comedy” and the heroine can see dead people! Oh. My. God. What are these two sisters cooking up now?
Seriously? She can see dead people? And this is supposed to be funny? Maybe like Park Shin Hye‘s one-shot drama Don’t Worry, I’m a Ghost. Or the totally not a romantic comedy and actually pretty freaky Lee Min Ki and Son Ye Jin movie Chilling Romance? The one sentence blip says this is a drama about a woman who can see ghosts and the man who stays by her side and keeps his promise, which is like saying nothing at all. Neither have of them have officially been cast but both are pretty much onboard as their agencies work out the final contract details. I am simultaneously nervous and excited. It’s getting harder and harder to shock me and this pairing jolted me right out of my chair for sure. We’ll have to wait and see whether this works or not.
