Day 8: Your favorite drama trope and which drama used it the best.
Mari: I think the most overused drama trope is the memory loss. If it is used correctly, it can help a plot big time. I love how it was used in I Hear Your Voice. We needed a time jump and a conflict for our hero to mature. Soo Ha lost his memory and it made him vulnerable; in return, Lawyer Jang became his fierce protector. It also gave Lawyer Cha a chance to redeem himself after freeing Min Joon-kook. Also, the scene where Soo Ha’s memories came rushing back and he later passed out in the street was haunting.
Sada: Over the years, I have learned that arranged marriage premise always works for me regardless whether it is a romance, family, revenge or business genre. I always want to see a couple fall in love and be happy. Princess Hours did a very good job.
Me: My favorite drama tropes are contract marriage and crossed dressing. I just love it! My favorite contract marriage drama is Full House. They are just fun to watch especially with their awkward relationship and tension between them *laughs*. As for crossed dressing drama, Coffee Prince captured it the best! Don’t you agree?
Day 7: Set location bucket list: place you want to visit because you saw it in a drama
Mari: There are way too many places to name here but I have always loved the mountain climbing scene in My Name is Kim SamSoon. So I pick Jeju Island.
Day 6: Favorite throwback Kpop MV (2012 or earlier)
Sada: I went to check and it is 2012’s SISTAR and the song is called Alone! Yay, I’m saved! That choreography is epic and the girls are to die for. I still watch the MV today.
Day 5: Actor or actress you once liked, but now you don’t.
Sada: This is no secret, it’s Han Ye Seul. Plus, her acting didn’t get better over the years. Also, it’s not that I don’t like him in any of his dramas after SUFB, but Sung Joon did get off of my radar now.
Day 4: Best On-Screen Smoocher
Sada: I have selected Gong Yoo and Eric Mun. Why? I took my consideration their past works. So Coffee Prince says it all… no need further explanation than that. And if you have not seen Que Sera Sera, well, you should. This drama proves Eric Mun dates before Another Miss Oh. I always thought the act of kissing in dramas will be good provided that the actress allows you to kiss her. So I have to give a round of applause to our Yoon Eun Hye. An honorably mentioned goes out to Park Seo Joon (although Mari is demanding proof that Seo Joon can kiss *laughs*)
Day 3 – The villain you could look past their evilness to date – mostly because they are hot being evil
Sada: Hmmm… this is a hard question. I thought about it and I always ends up with to Eom Ki Joon. He plays villain or semi-villain roles most of the time. Well, it’s not that I got used to it but it is really true that he delivers each and every time. His sinister smile and charisma make him really hot. I always look forward to seeing him. Also, not forgetting, I must mention fascinating Daniel Choi in Big. It was his first villain role and I thought he can be hot.
Day 2 – Who is your Kpop bias?
Sada: This question is so ungrateful! How? How to choose one when there are so many babies out there and that I love them all?! If I have to choose, then let’s go with my ultimate cutie L from Infinite and JungEunJi from A pink. *sobs* sobs ma babies!
