Why do I anticipate each week's episode of this drama so much? Don't you? It is getting even better and better as the story runs. And finally, in episode 11, I get the chance to relax a bit and enjoy the funny and cute scenes of the story. Wow! And my thoughts are being answered.
Initially, when I first watched the drama, I really had no idea where the characters will lead. I don't know who among them will be paired to one another. But after a couple of episodes, I just felt that Anthony and Go Eun have this great on screen chemistry. I already wrote about this on my previous blog and as I said, it does not matter if it is a hoobae/sunbae or professional realtionship, they just both filled the screen.
But last week's episode, there were times when I was torn between Sung Min Ah and Lee Go Eun. Min Ah had a past with Anthony so I was thinking perhaps the story or the love angle will go that way. And of course there is Siwon's quirky character, Kang Hyun Min who also show his cute side to Go Eun.
Episode 10 ended with Anthony declaring his confidence and total trust to Go Eun as a writer and as a person. With the plagiarism scandal, he is putting his trust and standing bu her side. This new side of Anthony is quite surprising for a man like him who never show his feelings let alone be vulnerable in front of other people. He is a tough guy and don't receive or ask help from anybody. But we all know how Go Eun has dealt with his stubborn character and most of the times she won. That's why they are awesome together.
To start off the episode, Min Ah was left thinking of how she used to be with Anthony. After hearing him asking the whole production staff and crew to trust Go Eun, she realized how special this girl might be to him. Then the next day, Go Eun was able to get the evidence needed to claim that she wrote Morning of Kyeongseong as early as 2005. The court rule in favor of them. She was crying and Anthony was so cute, lending her his handkerchief.
Well, another funny scene, [seriously, there were some in this episodes that made me giggle and grin and laugh the whole time] was when they were both inside the car and a highway patrol flagged them down for driving through the red light. He was asked for his driver's license and because it was already expired, the officer read his name aloud through his mobile radio so the officer from the office can check and verify. He insisted before to Go Eun that he does not have a Korean name because he lived in the US. But hearing the officer reading his name...Kim Bong Dal, she laughed non stop. She find his name funny.
A scene where Go Eun thought it was Hyun Min at the door and played a prank but it was Min Ah. lol!
The filming resumed and the broadcast date finally came. After airing for about 30 minutes, their drama is still behind in ratings. Anthony left and went to drink by himself. Lee Go Eun came after him and she drank with him. As the whole team, actors and crew are watching and waiting for the official announcement of the ratings, they are all tensed. I guess, this is how it is behind the camera. Then a phone call from the producer of SBC told Anthony they got the highest ratings!
They are all so happy. Their hard work paid off.
Now the parts that made me felt the screen was so alive and my heart palpitates was when Anthony told Go Eun to revise the scripts in episode 7. The scene where the characters will kiss. He told her that it was not written very good but she insisted that it is good. He then asked her to play the part with him. His staff, the boys read the dialogues while Anthony do the character of Hyun Min. Go Eun was hesitant to go along but in the end she tried. When they both faced each other, omo, that's when the chemistry was at it's best! I was holding my breath literally waiting for Anthony to kiss her just like in the script. They were looking at each other's faces and you can feel the tension!
Yes! They are looking good together. The other scene was the ending part, where Anthony was drunk and she helped him put to bed but suddenly he seized her hand and ask...
“What do you think of him” Kim questions with his completely-sober-looking eyes open. Lee finds herself speechless and just stares at him. “What?” she mutters. Anthony Kim speaks clearly: “What do you think of me as a guy?” Embarrassed, Lee stays mum, just staring at his face.
Now, this is what I call, another cliff hanging scene.
Looking forward to episode 12!!!
