Gaein’s drama reform ^^
Yes, here’s another p-shopped translation of Mrs Kim’s Drama Reform, parodying Personal Taste (개인의 취향, lit. Gae-in’s Preference)~ I really like this comic reform, especially of actor Ryu Seung Ryeong’s portrayal of director Choi.
ok.. here are some of the random thoughts I had when I started this drama.. (don’t think I will finish it though… >.<)
1. Ryu Seung Ryeong
Liked actor Ryu Seung Ryeong in Painter of the Wind, where he balanced a cold-blooded calculative trader with an extremely subtle romantic interior. ^^ I loved this parody, ‘cos I really found the way he talked in the drama very intriguing, silent, no-nonsense, seemingly incorruptible… what would be director Choi’s Personal Taste indeed?? heheh..
2. Son Yejin
I love Son Yejin, and though I find Gae-in well acted by her, I don’t like the way Gae-in is scripted in this drama. I had thought that the cliche innocent / foolish / innately kind hearted heroine is passe, and probably because I am such a fan of Yejin’s earlier drama Alone in Love, I thought Gaein here reminded me a little of Alone in Love’s Jiho. Or maybe half of Jiho’s quirkiness added with half of stereotypical silly drama heroines (Remember Lovers in Paris??)
3. Gay and Architect
The only entertaining aspect of this drama is the gay jokes, though some of them are, again, pretty cliche. Like.. “Gae-in’s Preference”, the korean title of this drama, where “Gaein” is a triple pun on Gaein herself; on hanja 個人, meaning personal or individual; and a shadowy reference to “gay-in”, the gay person (‘s preference). Also the architect character, where I can’t help comparing the childish portrayals here with Ji Jin Hee’s convincingly frigid Jo Jae Hee in The Man Who Can’t Get Married. -.-;;
4. sound of hunger
eh… why? i’m at episode 5 now, and it always seem like a crucial scene saver… or is it cute?
