It’s entertaining to see the diametrically opposite reactions from the K-netizens versus the Chinese netizens on the cross-border romance of Korean actor Song Seung Heon and Chinese actress Crystal Liu. While the K-netz are happy to have oppa bring a veritable screen goddess back to Korea, much like Korean director Kim Tae Yong did when he married top Chinese actress Tang Wei, the Chinese netizens are in an uproar at the thought of losing another perfect screen princess to potentially marry off to Korea. It’s less genuine vitriol and all tongue in cheek, with the C-netz arguing over which Korean goddess to try and marriage snatch over to China.
All of this is generating incredible attention and buzz for Song Seung Heon and Crystal Liu’s upcoming romance movie The Third Way of Love. And no, there isn’t a single person who thinks the two is dating to drum up interest for the movie since neither has ever publicly dated a costar not to mention this movie has been very widely followed and covered by the media since it was announced because of the star power of the two leads. I’m not getting a good understanding of what to expect from the movie based on the teaser trailer other than the two leads are going to be ridiculously good looking in it. The drama released a bunch of filming stills last month and the public has been lapping it up for signs that the two leads were doing real filming already. I say it’s fairly certain that was the case based on the stills.
