Did anyone question why Juwon and Raim are both not reading the Little Mermaid, and why that book doesn’t exist in his library?
My guess is perhaps the Little Mermaid isn’t as important here as a story, but rather as an ending, a consequence. Whereas Alice in Wonderland (Juwon in Raim-land? Or Raim in Juwon-land?) fits the story front, back, center, and maybe even with the drama title itself. Hmm.
Anyway, welcome, new readers, to writer Kim Eun Sook’s Drama-land~ ^^
Do you know…?
– Minumsa Publishing sponsored all the books featured in Secret Garden.
– Their fastest selling book is Kim Kyung Wook’s novel “As if in a fairytale”, selling 3000 copies in less than 4 days after appearing in the Dec 12 episode.
It’s not a surprise then, that bookstores are creating ‘Kim Ju Won’s Library” corners (on- and offline) for fan readers. Here’s one from a favorite bookstore : —

Allow me to discriminate (*ahem*) and judge a book by it’s title — I would love to try reading Lee Eung Joon’s “He walked away at the speed of memories“. It’s a collection of 9 short stories in the ‘spirit of true modernism’ where the author portrays the ‘pain, sadness, loneliness and depression of youth’. Oh my~ ( ..)
On a lighter note, there weren’t very good reviews about the Secret Garden photo comics, which is supposedly based on earlier versions of the script.
Lastly, remember Juwon and Raim’s bookshelf poetry scenes?
Some netizens have tried making poetry out of their own book collections too, but… it’s not easy. I wonder how long writer Kim took to create those scenes. Kudos to her and her writing team. Will be posting again if I find interesting ones~~ ^^ Of course, would gladly post yours if you can figure out your own bookshelf statement – a bookshelf joke, curse, nag, wish, whatever~ *lol*
