NEW FOUND LOVE!!! I was excited for K-drama Pride & Prejudice, but I never expected it to be anything like this, or this good. The first two episodes totally blew me away and I just want Monday to quickly come right now.
The description for the drama was very general, and pretty vague, so I didn’t know what to expect from it – and I’m totally surprised that it’s much better than whatever I expected. I love all the casts – and it’s a total blessing for me to have Choi Jin Hyuk, Lee Tae Hwan, Choi Woo Shik and even Choi Min Soo all in one drama. AND I LOVE BAEK JIN HEE!
I’m not going to do recaps for the first two episodes, not sure if I will be doing any recaps – but I do hope someone will do them!!! I’ll just post some screencaps and do a short discussion~
THOUGHTS & DISCUSSION
Han Yul Moo and Koo Dong Chi ‘date’ each other for 10 months and Yul Moo ‘confessed’ to him. However, she saw that slip above and was shocked. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT IS!!! If anyone of you know, please let me know. I just hope that it’s not some birth certificate or something, because the last thing I need from a drama is a birth secret. No right? It’s not right???
Anyway, we started off the first episode, knowing that they dated before and there is a certain grudge each of them have against each other. At this point of time, we know that Yul Moo is trying to find out something about Dong Chi, I’m not sure what. However, it seems that she joined his team, or decide to live with him – for this purpose. To get close to him, and to find out whatever she’s trying to find out.
Dong Chi, on the other hand, doesn’t know the reason behind why Yul Moo suddenly left back then – and maybe there are still some things which happened, which we don’t know yet. However, it seems like Dong Chi still has lingering feelings for Yul Moo.
Kang Soo looks like he is interested in Yul Moo, and I don’t know how close Kang Soo and Dong Chi are, but both are going to battle it out for Yul Moo’s heart and I’m all ready to see it unfold. We’re not getting there yet, we’re only in the second episode – but I just cannot wait for it to happen. THAT TENSION.
I love her approach to just being there, sipping the can of beer and casually saying to live together with a smile on her face. It feels as though she is flirting, but we know that she might have a hidden motive in wanting to stay there – maybe because she couldn’t find what she wanted from Dong Chi in the office, thus may try to move in and look for it there.
The biggest question, really, is WHAT IS THAT SLIP OF PAPER – AND WHY IS SHE SO UPSET, AND WHAT IS SHE TRYING TO FIND???
That mystery itself is keeping me invested, but not just that. Baek Jin Hee has amazing chemistry with both leads, and I just don’t know how to explain it.
Oh – and it’s a total plus, that the crimes – even though pretty simple stuff so far, doesn’t seem ‘boring’ or ‘lame’ -because in a way, we get to see how newbie prosecutor Yul Moo tries to deal with the cases. Studying may be easy for her, but doing the job itself is probably not as easy as the textbook. She has a lot of room to grow as a prosecutor.
Moon Hee Man is pretty mysterious himself. We don’t know why he chooses to be a department head, and there seems to be something going on between him and Jung Chang Gi.
So basically, I loved the first two episodes and I hope it continues to stay this way. As long as no birth secrets is involved. Hah. Oh and the love triangle, Bring it on. Better still, since they are all living together, I WANT MOREEEE INTERACTIONS 🙂 🙂 🙂
