It’s going to be telling of your age/generation if you thought upcoming MBC romance When I was Most Beautiful straight up copied a scene from Ghost. Now I’m humming Unchained Melody again, damn you pottery wheel skinskip! I then checked the synopsis and learned that leading lady Im Soo Hyang is a potter, i.e. a pottery artist. Of course she’s going to be around a pottery wheel for legit reasons and of course at some point one or both of her male leads Ha Suk Jin and Ji Soo are going to find a reason sit behind her as she shapes. Because hello, still so sexy. Im Soo Hyang is Ji Soo’s first love, I see high school art teacher in the previews to his student, but then she starts to date his race car driver older brother. Cue angst and lots of love triangle tropes, I’m sure. This drama looks and feels so old school, nothing wrong with that if done well.
