Secret Garden 2011 plus Big Bang Parody

23 05 2012

Oh Secret Garden where do I begin?  So good, so mediocre, so disappointing…

The series starts out with Ha Ji Won being allsorts of cool bad ass.  Love her and was glad to see her, since the last thing I saw her in was Something Happed in Bali which I happened to love, so that is a good start.  Hyun Bin, oh gosh, of Sam Soon fame and my first k-actor crush!  How could I not love you… and he started out very funny.  A little too much makeup for my liking and believe me I love makeup on a guy, but Binny is so cute I don’t think he needs the extra buffing the makeup gives him.  Anyway…

We get our first look at Lee Phillip, what can I say I am a sucker for long hair. Sometimes he looked amazing and other times, not so much, but either way, I am excited to see him in future and hopefully not translating scripts for Koreans in English – keke.

One of my favorite things in the whole series is when Joo Won starts imagining Ra Im with him, so cute!!!

I know this isn’t my best conversation about a series and to be honest, I watched it like 6 months ago, but I did like it, I just didn’t love it and I remember feeling super disappointed with the chemistry between the leads.  Ra Im had more chemistry with his cousin, who I beyond totally loved.

This series just held on to my #10 (although I think has fallen off the top 10 since…)spot on my Best of Kdrama list found here…

The bottom line was that though there was so much right about this series… I just didn’t fall in love with the main characters.  I didn’t have any strong desire to actually see them get together, so I didn’t fall in love with this series.  ;-(   I really hate to say it, but I still would recommend this because the depth of characters and the overall good time was right on.
