I’m ready to put K-drama screenwriter Ha Myung Hee on my shit list now, I’ve concurred with a lot of the criticism lobbed at her for her previous dramas Doctors, High Society and even her earliest works One Warm Word and Can We Get Married. But being flawed doesn’t mean she’s completely sucky but now her attitude makes me think of her as such for being so manipulative to her drama fans. Ha Myung Hee posted on her SNS last week that she was really torn about how to end currently airing SBS drama Temperature of Love, whether female lead played by Seo Hyun Jin will end up with the younger chef Yang Se Jong‘s character or her production agency boss Kim Jae Wook. Come again woman? She wrote that even though the drama is adapted from her own novel with a set ending, the drama to her is fair game and open again to writing an ending that could be different.
I find this so crappy on her part because fans of the chef ship will feel worried and fans of the boss ship will get hopeful. I love Kim Jae Wook’s performance but his character is pretty annoying now and I don’t even want him to get anything much less the girl. And if Seo Hyun Jin is based on Ha Myung Hee herself then oh boy no wonder there is this veneer of self-absorbed righteousness about her that I just can’t stand. I hope viewers who are still sticking with this job can handle the whiplash to come for the final few episodes whatever the ending turns out to be.
