Okay, at first I wasn’t too excited from this 2017 My Sassy Girl remake, but then I heard some things (particularly this list of 5) that’s making me all pumped for this to air. It’s coming out in a few days on May 29th btw.
Reason #1 is obvious, three words: Moon Joo Won. If you don’t know, check out Bridal Mask, 7th Grade Civil Servant, Good Doctor. In my personal opinion though, just the thought of seeing his perfect face on my laptop screen is enough reason to want to watch this. However, I can say with confidence that this guy is not only a pretty face, he proved himself good with his deeper works (Bridal Mask, again).
Reason #2 is also quite obvious: Oh Yeon Seo. I first saw her acting in Come Back Mister and no other words can describe her other than, she is da bomb. This chick is uber hilarious, like I’m tripping. She is also super beautiful and she fits the word sassy to the freaking T, so yass yass yassss.
This remake is not just any old remake, it’s a remake where they’re changing the time period~ ooh plot twist. The original movie was set in the modern times, but this time around we get to see the romcom unfold in the Josoen Dynasty. So what does this mean? Only prettier costumes, more scenic sets, and ofc the addition of palace drama dundundun
The fact that the main girl is suppose to be all sassy and forward, makes her all the more a sore thumb sticking out in the conservative time period, I just cannot wait to see the Joseon pple’s face ^_^
The teaser that came out like 10 days ago got me all excited. I already see hints of the perfect mix of humor, romance, action, suspense, and feeeels.
This is the heart-moving synopsis I found online for My Sassy Girl:
You see those last few words that I highlighted above? Yea, can’t fcking wait to see that happen.
My impression on this Kdrama- it’s going to be a complete and utter riot. I’m still stuck in my little Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms world, so it’s been real hard watching anything new, let alone finishing any dramas. Hopefully, My Sassy Girl is the answer to this drama death valley I’ve been stuck in for the past month.
