I’m so pissed off after this weekend’s Goddess of Marriage monstrosity of a weekend drama that the frustration was lifted only after seeing these drop-dead gorgeous pictures of former Flower Boy Next Door co-stars Kim Ji Hoon and Park Shin Hye attending the opening night of the Chinese Film Festival in Korea. Hopefully this will serve as a balm for the rest of Kim Ji Hoon’s fans who might as well ignore GoM for the remainder of its 15 week run. Weekend dramas are by nature of the beast more high strung and pot-boiler-ish with the family histrionics but GoM is like everything horrible thrown into a pot to make the worst stew EVER. I dislike all of the secondary couples but the main love triangle is genuinely the pits. Nam Sang Mi plays a Kim Ji Hoon’s long time (three year) girlfriend who gets upset when he proposes and gives her a buttload of cash to prepare for the wedding, which is when she learns that he comes from a fabulously wealthy family and her pride can’t handle the vast social chasm between them and the fact that he didn’t tell her beforehand. She up and cuts off contact with him for a week and traipses off to Jeju for work and to think things through, but she has a ridiculous CF perfect chance meeting with Lee Sang Woo that ends with them being attracted to each other in a short period of time and then tumbling into bed together for a quick one night stand before she runs back to Seoul to resolve things with Kim Ji Hoon, who likes to yell a lot and insists that he loves Nam Sang Mi a lot to explain his bulldozing ways. Already I hate all three of them, the cheater with her pride, the yeller with his domineering ways, and the too-perfect dude who swans in without a shred of realism. Seeing Kim Ji Hoon at the film festival, which Park Shin Hye also attended but they didn’t go together, makes me long so badly for the days of FBND with lovely characterizations and quiet introspection. I love how they both wore dark blue outfits by kismet. Kim Ji Hoon needs to go back to cable STAT, and now I’m getting worried for Park Shin Hye’s upcoming drama Heirs with Lee Min Ho since the Big Three networks are by-and-large still majorly sucking this year.
