dangermousie: (Secret Garden by timescout)
[personal profile] dangermousie
I think if I had to pick, Secret Garden, the story of a plucky stuntwoman rescuing her traumatized but caustic ice prince, is probably my favorite romantic kdrama ever. It just works for me on every level (and if a drama exists that will make me cry more than ep 17 of SG did, I don't want to know it).

So imagine my delight when I found this amazing amazing unspoilery MV that is pretty much perfect:

I am desperate for a rewatch now. Anyone want to join me?

I have stayed away from SG because of the wicked mom storyline, but darn it, you went and wet my appetite for a good kdrama and now I'm going to have to marathon it and ff the angry mom portions.

Hyun Bin, come back soon. I can't wait 'til his post military service comeback drama is announced. I know repeats are against the norm, but how about KSA or HJW as the female lead? Just wishing and hoping and praying!

BTW, I enjoyed seeing my forever Dr. Jang Bin from Faith in the MV. I miss him on screen.

Actually, evil Mom is a very small part of the storyline so you can easily skip it.

I was OBSESSED with SG!

She really is a small part. And after watching a blooper in the ending credits where the actress started crying because her character was so mean - it was forever impossible to take her seriously as evil. ;)

Awww, really? That's adorable!

By kdrama standards, she is not even super awful. The worst angst is not from her but from idiot driver...

It was so cute! I really thought it was an ending credit NG but I just checked & can't find it anywhere. Not on youtube or in the DVD BTS. :(

I watched SG, and now ransacked my brain to remember who the idiot driver you revering to?

That caused HJW's accident in ep 17.

Secret Garden is definitely the most epically romantic kdrama ever. Next to Queen In-Hyun's Man - though that one's more sweetly swoony than "romantic", I think.

I like your distinction between swoony and romantic :)

SG is one of the very few dramas I rewatched. So perfect. I think I know what I am doing with my time if Frankenstorm hits :)

Does this drama involve them swapping bodies? For some reason I thought it did, and that has kept me away from it.

It does and it is normally a trope I hate, but here it is a very minor part of the plot.

Well I guess I should give it a try. I know it was a huge huge hit and if you say the body swapping is not a huge part of it I'm willing to watch a cute romance. :)

I forgot how cute they were. Although I was not in love with the show, I did enjoy it. It brought back nice memories. I might even rewatch soon. I was in Korea shortly after and everywhere, on the buses, streets, in the cafe shops, they were playing the music from Secret Garden, I could hum along. It was a cool experience.

Oh wow, that does sound cool!
