Whatever SBS is trying to sell with Incarnation of Jealousy, I totally am buying on the strength of leads Gong Hyo Jin and Jo Jung Seok. This drama definitely looks more wacky than the most recent broadcasting themed drama Producers, which coincidentally also starred Gong Hyo Jin, but here she seems larger than life in ways that screenwriters are wont to amplify the distinctiveness and personality of a lead character. It’s not necessarily a bad thing and I’m so far so onboard with all the teasers and stills because Gong Hyo Jin’s no-nonsense chicness sells it for me. Right now all the media attention is on the next SBS Wed-Thurs drama that will take over of Incarnation of Jealousy in fantasy mermaid tale Legend of the Blue Sea, but it will be nice if Incarnation turns out entertaining as the previews hint at and memorable in its own right.
