I’m been so MIA these past weeks. Maybe it’s because Pinkblossom has been out of the country and having lots of fun in her motherland so I have felt really disconnected to drama world. I just have not been able to get into any dramas recently. All the recent KDramas just don’t appeal to me. I’m a fickle person and I don’t push myself to watch things I am averse too. Examples include the current Jang Ok Jung, Living in Love. It’s just unfathomable to me to have the lead Kim Tae-hee being 33 years old in real life coupled with baby-faced 27-year-old Yoo Ah-In. I mean don’t get me wrong Kim Tae-hee is gorgeous but there’s just a huge mental block for me and I just keep seeing the age difference. Yah, I have to admit I am a little old-fashioned. I get confused when I see older women paired up with younger guys. Of course, there’s scenarios when this works out but this particular couple just doesn’t work for me!
But anyways, back to the point of the post. I’m really excited for Lee Jun-ki’s new drama, Two Weeks. I fell in love with Lee Jun-ki in that classic drama My Girl. Yes he was 100% feminine with long hair and dangly earrings to boot, but it somehow equated to 100% hotness. Then I proceeded to fan-girl over Iljimae and totally fell in love all over again. I haven’t been able to fully appreciate his last two dramas, Hero and Arang and the Magistrate, so I’m hoping Two Weeks will do it for me.
The basic premise seems to be that somehow within 2 weeks, Lee Jun-ki will be charged with murder and find out his daughter has leukemia. He will then have to sort out the whole mess in these two weeks which is supposed to play out in about 20 episodes. It’ll be interesting to see what devices the director might use to show the time progress or possibly time jumps within these two weeks. Also I’m excited to see Lee Jun-ki in a father role and see his interactions with whichever adorable Korean little girl that is cast. I’m hoping there might be some awesome twists and surprises that of course end in our hero’s favor.
Regardless, here’s some photos of Mr. Lee to get us through to the premier some time in August.
