The drama adaptation of the novel Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love has this far lived up to its chick lit origins. It’s very romantic, of the type of romance that really tugs at the heartstrings. It’s attraction and appreciation rolled into one, heady aromas of male-female push and pull without coming off as childish or underwhelming. Not only do I feel like there are insurmountable obstacles before Lee Soon and Ok Jung, I also feel pulled into their struggle because their growing love explodes off the screen to create sparks everywhere. Yoo Ah In looks younger than Kim Tae Hee, in character and in real life, but that doesn’t matter in the least. Their visual symmetry isn’t in their looks, because I have totally looked past their physical features and my eyes see desperately lonely Lee Soon and scared and hopeless Ok Jung finding each other like ships in the night. It’s an impossibility yet the fates have given them this chance and they are both smart and brave enough to grab hold of it. I love OTPs like them, not playing the denial card or posturing for the sake of dragging out the tension. They want each other, and the devil is in the details of how to make it happen. From the spoiler stills released for episode 10, looks like Lee Soon isn’t going to let recently being in a coma, taking another wife courtesy of his mom ordering it while he was in said coma, and having a bevy of ministers at his back curtail him from pursuing the woman of his dreams. Seeing these stills had me giggling and blushing like a school girl, but at the same time wondering how the heck the OTP has moved this far and still there have been no sightings of the purported second male lead.
