When I first watched K-dramas I thought each and every single one featured a love triangle. That was way back when, when if memory serves that was indeed the case. Or so it felt that way. Things have evolved since then in many ways, not just with respect to the love triangle, but that too has become something that sometimes appears in K-dramas but not always. A drama can’t just mine the angst of having one character unable to pick between two choices, there has to be more to make the conflict feel intriguing and alive so that the viewer cares about the outcome. Characters need to have personalities, interactions have to be interesting and different, then suddenly the triangle becomes something that audiences look forward to solving. Once there is a well written love triangle, suddenly the drama becomes interesting to watch, but then it usually spawns a shipping war. I kinda hate shipping wars, I feel like one can prefer one without insulting the other, but in reality it’s not always so civilized. I have a feeling the upcoming Goddess of Marriage is going to have some massive shipping war break out. Perhaps Lee Sang Woo is used to it, since his last weekend drama Feast of the Gods reportedly had that happen between fans that shipped him versus fans that preferred male lead Joo Sang Wook‘s character with the leading lady played by Sung Yuri. Here the love triangle looks to be the central focus of the drama with respect to their three characters. I’m a much bigger fan of Kim Ji Hoon but I am reserving shipping preferences until I see how the characters are fleshed out and Nam Sang Mi‘s chemistry with her two leading men. InStyle Korea already got a jump on this love triangle by featuring the three leads in a photo spread in its July edition. It doesn’t really shed any light of which guy gets the girl since she’s equally cozy with both of them. I kinda wished this was a full blown wedding photo spread, which would have been apropos since there are lots of weddings during the Summer so a photo spread with the latest fantasy wedding dresses would be useful, not to mention this drama is called Goddess of Marriage.
