I have such a warm and fuzzy girl crush on Yang Jin Sung right now. It’s part and parcel with my newfounded love for Lee Hong Ki after watching them in Bride of the Century, but honestly Hong Ki is merely adorable cruising on his natural born star appeal while Yang Jin Sung is really acting her socks off. Every time I see her smirking and looking pissy as Yi Kyung, I alternate between wanting to smack her in the face and giving her a hug for doing such a bang up job. She totally talks differently as Yi Kyung, this softer cadence that is refined but with an undercurrent of snobbery, while as Doo Rim she infuses her words with such warmth and care. I’m wondering what kind of ending will befall Yi Kyung and her even eviler mom President Ma? Will Yi Hyun cut ties with both of them or will he forgive their crimes?
With the sudden but rather nicely done overhaul of Roo Mi’s character from another rich-bitch-in-waiting to wise woman who has learned to let go, maybe she and Yi Hyun can get together at the end? That would be totally unexpected but would make for a nice super pat ending for all the good characters. Episode 13 continued to be awesome but I’m already looking forward to episode 14 because it promises yet another major K-drama trope arriving not a moment too soon. It’s a doozy but I don’t think anyone watching will be surprised or find it an overkill. This drama has a ghostly matchmaker, beyond that nothing phases me anymore. Like I said earlier, I really am waiting for the terminal illness to arrive.
Written preview for episode 14:
President Ma thought she could control Taeyang Group because she holds such a deadly secret over them, but in the end she grabs Doo Rim by the neck like an enraged animal and tries to kill her…..
