There’s nothing wrong with deciding to watch a drama for any personal reason, however big, small, or totally nonsensical. In the case upcoming MBC 50-episode weekend drama Glamorous Temptation, my decision to watch for the first ten episodes featuring the teen portion for Kim Sae Ron seems like a perfectly legit and safe choice. Usually dramas start off better than it ends, so checking out the childhood episodes actually has a higher chance of tuning in for the good stuff.
I also have a soft spot for Nam Joo Hyuk, who may still need vast amounts of acting improvement but is certainly not beyond terrible in my eyes. The youngsters have started filming already, but a table script reading was held last week with the full cast, including adult leads Joo Sang Wook and Choi Kang Hee. Just the thought of Nam Joo Hyuk morphing (shrinking?) into Joo Sang Wook has me in stitches, one of those transition castings that make zero visual sense other than the drama chose to cast them in particular. Same goes for believing that Kim Sae Ron grows up into Choi Kang Hee, their aura is so different as to be night and day.
