I’m dying for 2014 to arrive so I can put 2013 behind me and I think there are others who feel the same way. Nor sure of my sweet Yoon Eun Hye shares the same sentiment but she’s definitely had a rough month of December and will surely be happy for a fresh new month to arrive come January. Her highly anticipated Fall drama Marry Him If You Dare (Mirae’s Choice) turned out to be her biggest dud in years both ratings-wise and audience reaction. Lie to Me may have been mostly silly but its undeniable tons of people loved it while Missing You garnered lots of discussion and a niche fan base. I’m not sure its possible to find anyone who liked much less loved MHIYD which wrapped up in early December with a huge whimper and a giant middle finger to those who stuck around until the end. Yoon Eun Hye tried but she couldn’t overcome a poorly written character or drama and even by the end I felt her spirit sapped. After the drama wrapped she attend good friend singer Jadu’s wedding to a non-entertainment industry gentlemen and sang a song at the wedding at the behest of Jadu. What got everyone talking was that she caught the bouquet! From what I know the bouquet catching in Korean weddings is pre-arranged in advance to give it to the friend most likely to wed next so Yoon Eun Hye catching it causes tongues wagging. Her agency pooh-poohed the chatter and said it was just luck and Yoon Eun Hye is not getting married anytime soon. Bummer as I would love to see her settle down with a good man she loves and loves her back. After the wedding poor Eun Hye got her name dragged through the mud (along with other A-list Korean actresses) as part of a prosecutorial investigation into actress prostitution. It turned into a baseless slander situation and the prosecutor investigating the case actually released a statement exonerating the names of the poor actresses being bandied about online as being completely unrelated to the case whatsoever. Days after her name was cleared Yoon Eun Hye attended her good friend Gong Yoo’s movie premiere for The Suspect and she looked so wan I wanted to hug her. It’s reassuring that this bizarre scandal was resolved so quickly because the power of netizen slander is strong indeed especially in a country as wired as South Korea. Despite her string of poor drama choices I have faith Eun Hye is just one project away from another great role and story like a Coffee Prince.
