Okay, I have a problem. Well, several, but only one will be the topic of this post. I have a tendency to fixate on things (like that weird guy at works with his obvious fake hair – I don’t care about revenue, just admit that your rug is fake already!) to the point that I am completely and utterly distracted. My tendencies are not tuned out while watching dramas, so of course I have had my fair share of things that have had me saying “Pay attention to the story, pay attention to the story – stop it Lore! STOP IT!” And those things are….
Hello Kitty Tattoo – Haeundae Lovers
I just kept wanting to see it. Which sounds kind of dirty, but trust me, I am talking about the Hello Kitty tattoo on an ex-gangster’s arm. It was so freaking adorable! Every time I saw him I was like “Just show us the tattoo, SHOW US THE TATTOO”
Poodle Perm – Marry Him if you dare
When the first pictures were released showing Yoon Eun Hye with a perm, I was okay with it. Mostly because I forgot that I would be seeing her for 2 hours a week for the next 10 weeks. So when Marry Him if you Dare started, I was easily distracted by the hair-that-I-do-not-want-to-mention. A pic was just released showing a changed hairstyle on YEH / Mi Rae, and it is coming none too soon. That hair! That freaking hair!
Lee Jong Suk’s Mole – I Hear your Voice
Have you seen this thing? Because if you have how can you not stare at it. This thing should have its own management team. Seriously. Lee Jong Suk’s mole under his right eye has shocked me – I never thought I would find a mole, of all things attractive. Noona loves you! Queue creepy Noona leg kicks:
Song Hye Kyo’s Eyes – That Winter the Wind Blows
I kept focusing on Song Hye Kyo’s eyes during That Winter the Wind Blows. SHK played Oh Young, a blind woman (I cannot even imagine how difficult this would be for someone who can see, portraying this disability respectfully and accurately); her eyes were therefore usually not focused towards something that grabbed her attention visually – she really had to act out her expressions in an interesting way. So, my attention was drawn towards her eyes, seeing how well she did react with them without focusing on what could be seen. SHK did a phenomenal job at the role (as usual), and I appreciate it all the more for how she showed emotion in her eyes.
Tan’s Sweaters – Heirs
I have said this before and I will likely keep saying it (unless this show gets a new wardrobe peep) – putting such knitted pieces of horribleness on Lee Min Ho should be a crime. Parrots? Weird symbol things? Gold lame? I just can’t.
