With It’s Okay, It’s Love signing off with a satisfying flourish last week, tomorrow SBS welcomes lighter fluffier fare in the Wed-Thurs time slot. The arrival of My Lovely Girl (My Lovable Girl) marks leading man Rain‘s return to television after four years as well as Krystal‘s first turn as a leading lady. I’m cool with their 12 year age difference in real since since Krystal looks older than her 19 years of age and it’s better to go in with an open mind since I welcome a easy to watch rom-com. But I just have to point out that when Rain was spreading Hallyu K-drama love through Full House with Song Hye Kyo in 2004, Krystal was 10 years old that year. Oh my how time flies. The cast attended a rather low key press conference earlier this week sporting a variety of outfits that range from burn it ugly to thanks for my hurting my eyes decent. Rain must’ve gotten dressed in the dark, or maybe borrowed his Full House top star alter ego’s dreadful sense of style.
From his sweater to pants to shoes, the man is a walking fashion disaster. If Krystal wanted to look older then she failed miserably by going for a dress that looks like a Victorian maid’s uniform crossed with an elementary schoolgirl’s outfit. I still like L‘s new blond locks but wish Hoya was playing the second male lead in this drama since he’s by far the better actor. L wins on being a better smirker. The production released a super long 10-minute preview which really consists of only 6 minutes of plot since the first four minutes are to showcase an outdoor performance by the idol group within the drama called Infinite Power. Did’ja get the so witty reference of calling the group Infinite Power since two of the members of played by L and Hoya who are members of the real life Kpop group Infinite? I hope SBS merely picked low hanging fruit for the set up and the actual drama delivers on the emotional resonance even if the story is all sorts of been there-done that.
