I got through the first two episodes by the occasional use of the fast forward button (SECONDARY CHICK, I AM LOOKING AT YOU), some swearing, and the realization that i had nothing better to do.
after that..i..kinda got into it.
but it starts off SO BADLY.
She! is adorable and a writer and has a gorgeous house and highly suspicious acting friends. SURPRISE! they say. YOU WON A TRIP TO SOMEPLACE NOT HERE! WHAT? OF COURSE ALL EXPENSES PAID? WOULD WE LIE?
and then they sell her house and all her furniture. and steal her savings. and take out a loan in her name.
and y'all, i knew I was doomed about this show when i started FINDING HER FRIENDS FUNNY. i spent the first three episodes or so hissing at the screen when they showed up or were mentioned, and now i just chuckle. OH SO FUNNY! HE JUST TOLD THE BOSS ABOUT THE CONTRACT MARRIAGE! HEE! *facepalm*
what sent me into fits, though, was how the bank people and the realtor just..shrug it off. like it's something that happens all the time! OOPS! Somebody sold your house! Whoopsie! Nothing we can do, no ma'am! I couldnt get over it! I threw things! I swore out loud! My husband thinks Im possessed!
I got through the first two episodes on boredom and swear words. By episode three, I was watching out of vague interest to see how many times Young-Jae and Ji-eun could possibly encounter each other in bizarre ways, figuring out how long it would take them to get their heads out of their asses and realize they loved each other, and horrified fascination to see what horrible crime against humanity Young-Jae would next call an outfit.
I mean it. Seriously. biases is supposedly putting together a picspam of the horrors he wears and calls "fashion," and i will point you there as soon as possible, because this shit has to be seen to be believed.
so, anyway, girl gets put on plane on scam trip, girl meets famous boy and throws up on him, borrows money from him, then comes home to find him living in her house. you know, typical story, whatever.
but this is actually when it starts getting rather awesome, in an OH GOD WHY AM I WATCHING THIS kind of way. see, there is this girl that Young-Jae likes who desperately needs to be punched in the face or hit with a brick or something, because i hate her and frequently fast forward through her scenes. she spends half of her time telling Young-Jae how much she doesnt like him but dont you DARE fall in love with your fake wife, you hussy, and the other half crying over secondary guy, who, for a change, i actually LIKE.
so, there's this girl, and she's a bitch, and Young-Jae follows her around like a puppy, but she likes Min-Hyuk, who is hot but has his secretary send bitch birthday presents, so obviously, he doesnt care. bitch doesnt like Young-Jae, but wants him at her beck and call.
Through series of random events involving the large amount of money that Ji-eun borrowed from dude, the fact that he's living in the house her dad built and she refuses to leave, and the fact she went through his mail and filched an invite to the fancy party that all four of them magically wound up at, hot guy shoots bitch down, bitch is bitchy to Young-Jae and demands to know if he likes her, at which point he proclaims himself in love with JI-EUN, and plants a big one on her right there.
I AM HALFWAY THROUGH EP 12 AND THAT REMAINS THE ONLY KISS WE HAVE GOTTEN SO FAR AND I HATE THIS DRAMA.
then! he proposes marriage!
no, really. a fake marriage. because 1)he's pissed at bitch who he tried to propose to but she blew him off for the hottie and 2)he's tired of constantly being asked about scandals and who he is dating, and whatever. here's the deal. they get married, stay married for 6 months, she does the cleaning and cooking to pay him back the tons of money she borrowed from him to get home AFTER HER FRIENDS SENT HER TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY SO THEY COULD SELL HER HOUSE, and at the end of the 6 months, she gets a divorce and the house back.
I STAYED UP UNTIL 1 AM WATCHING THIS STUPID SHOW LAST NIGHT PEOPLE.
She figured out she was in love with him three freaking episodes ago! He throws temper tantrums and demands she clean things and has the emotional maturity of a CARROT and has not yet caught up with the fact he loves her too, even though he had a complete meltdown when she told him they should just get divorced.
and, of course, hottie likes Ji-Eun, bitch has decided she might maybe like Young-Jae and SHE'D LIKE HIM BACK NOW GIVE TO ME I DONT CARE THAT YOU ARE MARRIED OMG BITCHFACE, and Young-Jae is more emotionally stunted then Dorkface and IT IS POSSIBLE I WILL NOT SURVIVE THIS DRAMA.
