The day has lastly arrived. We actually thought at the present time would by no means come. When it was first introduced in 2018 that Choi Tae Joon and Sooyoung can be starring on this beloved adaptation of the novel/webtoon, which was additionally made right into a film, followers had been thrilled. But after the discharge obtained delayed, we questioned if it could ever even make it to the small display. Luckily for us, it did. And right here we’re three years later, watching the premiere. Curious to see what we considered the primary two episodes? Keep studying to search out out!
Warning: Spoilers forward.
1. How effectively Choi Tae Joon is pulling off the idol character
It feels prefer it’s been without end since Choi Tae Joon went to the military, so it’s good that his drama premiered whereas he’s nonetheless serving. He is a presence that now we have missed within the K-drama world, and if you happen to’re a fan of him, you perceive his expertise and appeal. Choi Tae Joon first starred in “Piano” in 2001 because the youthful model of Jo In Sung‘s character. As the drama was such an enormous success, Choi Tae Joon naturally grew to become a family title. Although he didn’t have loads of momentum by way of starring roles, individuals nonetheless stored tabs on him and supported his tasks.
In “So I Married The Anti-Fan,” Choi Tae Joon stars as a celeb and K-pop star by the title of Hoo Joon. In the primary two episodes we see varied layers of Hoo Joon. He’s not the superficial superstar that we is perhaps used to seeing in K-dramas, however he’s obtained emotional depth and a few baggage. It appears that he has been harm by lots of people he has trusted and is discovering it tough to be blissful in consequence.
At first it appeared prefer it might be a bit awkward for Choi Tae Joon to be enjoying a K-pop idol. Although he has good associates within the K-pop sphere in actual life (ie. Zico), he is aware of he’s not a dancer, so to drag off this position is kind of a process on his half. But to this point, it’s protected to say that he’s completed due diligence, and it’s not cringe-worthy but. He’s really a celeb character that we don’t hate and may perhaps relate to. I’m wanting ahead to seeing extra of the emotional points of Hoo Joon within the coming episodes!
2. How completely sassy and delightful Sooyoung is
Sooyoung has made her mark within the K-drama trade, and though “So I Married The Anti-Fan” comes earlier than her current hit tasks resembling “Tell Me What You Saw” and “Run-On,” she nonetheless has that spark and expertise that naturally exude from her performing.
In “So I Married The Anti-Fan,” Sooyoung performs Lee Geun Young, a journalist who will get fired because of jeopardizing Hoo Joon’s repute. She’s at a loss in lots of points of her life. She’s careworn, can’t discover one other job, is poor, and doesn’t have the most effective help system – presumably a personality loads of us can relate to. Despite these destructive issues occurring in her life, there’s loads of humor in the way in which she approaches her issues. She protests to get justice for the improper that Hoo Joon has completed to her, and she or he doesn’t let getting fired actually put her in a rut. She’s simply decided to deliver Hoo Joon down, which is fairly humorous and cute on the identical time.
It’s been pleasurable seeing Sooyoung on this drama to this point, and it’s protected to say that she’s proudly owning the position. Sooyoung has solely confirmed that she could be very versatile as an actress, and it’ll be enjoyable seeing her character develop because the sequence continues.
3. How unbelievably predictable however good the storyline is
I can’t be the one one who thinks the synopsis of an anti-fan having to dwell with a celeb on a actuality present is a recipe for a gorgeous romance. It does sound tacky, but it surely additionally sounds SO good, doesn’t it?
It’s obtained all of the rom-com components that make a drama good. It feels prefer it’s been awhile since there’s been such a deliciously tacky drama like this one, and it’s fairly good. For these of you who’re in some dire want of one thing gentle and fluffy within the midst of all of the thriller and crime dramas on the market proper now, this one is the reply. The sluggish movement head turns, upbeat background music, the exaggerated falls from the feminine lead and the principle lead catching her – it’s obtained all of it and is a recipe for fulfillment. This one might be an pleasurable watch via and thru.
4. How stunning and charming the supporting forged is
The supporting forged for this sequence is price getting enthusiastic about. First, now we have Chansung. He performs the antagonist who goes by the title of JJ. He has some points with Hoo Joon and the drama appears to trace at a love triangle between them and Sooyoung’s character, however we must discover out!
Next, there’s Kim Min Kyu. Although he has solely appeared just a little bit within the sequence, he performs the devoted and constant co-worker and good friend of Geun Young. His smile and appeal at all times lights up the display, so it’s a pleasure having the ability to see him on this position despite the fact that it’s a small one.
We can’t overlook our stunning and lovely second feminine lead Ha Ji An. You would possibly acknowledge her from her position in “That Sun In The Sky” or within the film “The Vanished.” Her position as Oh In Hyung on this specific drama will deliver out the jealousy and competitors in terms of the feminine lead.
There can be Han Jae Won performed by Dong Hyun Bae (BIGBANG member Taeyang’s older brother). His character is good and good, and appears to be a center man for Hoo Joon and Geun Young, it’s so clearly a vital position!
5. How good Sooyoung and Choi Tae Joon really look collectively
When it was introduced that the 2 can be starring on this drama collectively, I wasn’t positive if the they’d have chemistry or if they’d even mesh effectively collectively, however after watching the primary two episodes, it’s clear that the 2 are fairly cute collectively!
We’re already getting the tingly sensations of those two turning their hate for one another into one thing very romantic and delightful. As a results of their nice performing and expertise, these two seem to be they’d be a reasonably good duo till the tip. They’ve obtained me intrigued and excited; can’t wait to observe the following episodes!
