I just finished watching Fantasy Couple yesterday. I completed 15 episodes in two days. (The dramedy has a total of 16 episodes but I saw ep.01 a while back.) I stayed up late to watch it knowing full well that I needed to wake up early the next morning for work. And when I got off work, I rushed home to watch it. So, let me just say this: I LOVE THIS SHOW!
The Hong sisters (the writers behind Delightful Girl, Choon Hyang and My Girl) have, once again, made me laugh, cry, and care for the characters that they’ve created. Credit to Han Ye Seul for portraying a bitchy, picky woman who’s surprisingly very likable. Jo Anna reminds me a lot of myself. No, rest assured. I’m not as bitchy or picky. What is similar between our personalities is how defensive we both are when it comes to emotional attachment. We shun it (being emotionally attached to other people) because we fear that we’ll get hurt.
My most favorite couple is Sang Shil and Kang Ja, although that’s not to say that I don’t like the main couple (Sang Shil and Chul Soo) and all the other odd couplings. I love them all.
Sang Shil and Kang Ja
The only two characters that annoyed me were Yoo Kyung and her materialistic friend.
The soundtrack, like almost all other Korean dramas, is awesome. The themesong is very catchy!
If you haven’t seen this yet, what are you waiting for? I highly recommend it.
