It was a rather mellow week for me despite eagerly awaiting the final two episodes of Bride of the Century waiting for me at the end of the week. This is one drama where all the previews and spoilers and stills for the final two episodes merely confirm that this story has one more trick up its sleeve but it’s not a critical deal breaking. I thought Kang Joo overcoming President Ma in episode 14 was merely by doing what was right, he took the power out of her hands by revealing his own grandmother’s crime.

They are the key to breaking the curse and she is the titular bride of the century.

I still think Yi Kyung and Doo Rim are twins so that is one major question I’m excited for the drama to finally answer. Continue reading
