I’m normally live and let live with entertainment products – producers have a right to make whatever and it’s up to audiences to watch or ignore. But with this latest offering it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth, the taste of crass selling out and the ruination of a classic original. Korean-Chinese co-produced movie My Sassy Girl 2 is coming out this weekend, a direct sequel to the movie hit My Sassy Girl that launched Jeon Ji Hyun and Cha Tae Hyun‘s acting careers.
The sequel brings back Cha Tae Hyun’s character but all heartbroken because his sassy girl decided to become a nun and he’s reunited with his childhood sweetheart who turns out to be the original sassy girl in his life, this time played by Victoria Song. I’m not angry at the leads for starring in this narrative ruining sequel, I just wished it never existed and if everyone from the cast needed to be kidnapped from the set then I wished that had happened. Alas that didn’t and this weekend My Sassy Girl 2 premieres to wash away the happy feels from the original. Sigh.
