The first official stills are out for upcoming weekend family drama Give Love Away (Will You Love and Give it Away) airing on MBC in 4 weeks after I Summon You, Gold wraps up. I just have to give a shout out to ISYG – that drama be some of the craziest shit writing I’ve ever seen, akin to one of those over-the-top makjang dailies but somehow even more surreal. Luckily for Give Love Away, the PD here directed both Queen of Housewives and Queen of Reversals, and the screenwriter did City of Glass and Definitely Neighbors, and while all those dramas had problems none was batshit crazy so that is always a good place to start. Give Love Away might have the smallest quality shoes to fill of any K-drama taking over a timeslot from its predecessor. Starring Hong Soo Hyun, Lee Sang Yeob, Seo Ji Suk, Park Geun Hyung, Cha Hwa Yeon, Sin Da Eun, Kim Seung Soo, and Han Go Eun, this is a solid cast and everyone has weekend drama experience so can handle the 50-episode grind and the fortitude to withstand a probable latter half storyline melt down. I’m totally going to check it out for the cast and I like the OTP of Hong Soo Hyun and Lee Sang Yeob, but seeing this first stills totally shocked me because I’ve never seen these two side-by-side and does anyone else think they have remarkably similar faces? They could totally pass for siblings, if this was the cast for My Daughter Seo Young then these two should play the fraternal twin leads in that drama played by Lee Bo Young and Park Hae Jin who looked nothing alike. It’s not clear these two will end up together since their characters become legal step-siblings when their parents get married, plus Seo Ji Suk and Sin Da Eun play siblings that each like Hong Soo Hyun and Lee Sang Yeob, respectively. I’m so ready to wash the stench of ISYG from my memory, especially since GLA is about a family merging and learning to live together, and nowhere is any character described as amoral, mercenary, mentally deranged, or completely spineless, which is the totality of the denizens of ISYG.
