A love triangle involving two family members can’t end well, even if one conveniently dies of a terminal illness at the end and frees up the other two to be together. With Ha Suk Jin being a race car driver, I could see him perishing in a fiery crash and then younger brother Ji Soo and female lead Im Soo Hyang find their happy ending without the awkwardness. And it does look so awkward in the new stills and teasers for When I Was Most Beautiful premiering next week, I haven’t picked a brother yet because I’m agnostic until I understand their characters and intuitively decide who is a better fit for female lead. I just hope Ji Soo doesn’t spend the entire drama being a puppy dog and moping from a distance because that will get old fast, even if he does look tremendously appealing in that endearing way.
