It’s almost Christmas time… So what do you do when you have 23 days left? You fall in love but don’t fall in love too hard coz you may land hard on your face! On the other hand, if you ARE deeply in love with someone, then… make it a strong one, chingu *fingers heart*. Speaking of romance and lllllllove, OKC decided to do kdrama special for the entire December. I think this is a great approach by the admins *two thumbs up* since we will all be super-duper busy with the holiday prep. Our first drama special discussion starts today and boy oh boy, I really enjoy it! This is fun! Fangirling kdrama at best!
Cupid Factory is the first drama special on the list of watch. But there is no cupid in the factory. The cupid factory, in my opinion, is the helmet. Without the helmet, there will be no story. So what is this drama about? The story actually was written backward, FYI. I was a bit pissy at first because I couldn’t follow the story in a straight line *bapo*. But hey, don’t blame me! It’s Monday, after all *sticks tongue out* Nevertheless, I was determined *fist pump* and it paid off big time with my hwaiting skill. It told a story of an on again, off again couple. How many times did they break up? I’m pretty confused myself. 2 times? 3 times? Heol, who cares now *wink* But I do know they are meant for each other but life got the best of them. Painfully at first, sweeter at last *phew*
Sojun is a successful songwriter who suddenly faced a writer’s block because he doesn’t have enough romance experience in life to produce beautiful lyric. His failure in romance frustrated him until one day he decided to seek help from a “cupid” doctor. After much evaluation on his romance sickness, cupid doc (more like a scam doc) prescribed him with a futuristic-looking helmet. It designed to hypnotize the wearer and calm the person down. What did he hope for from wearing this helmet? Bring him back to his own senses and inspire him to write again, of course. And then we have Jeong Siyun, Sojun’s ex. Siyun left him years ago as she sees no future in him as a successful songwriter. Later in life, she found him succeed in his own career whereas she had to work her butt off to make ends meet while struggling to be a singer herself. They both later met midway in their career life: Sojun with his midlife writing crisis and Siyun with a hurdle on her singing career. He wrote a song for her but her manager think it is a suicide for her career. Why? The lyric is about their love life and her manager felt it will spark a scandal rumor. But guess what? It doesn’t matter. He confessed his love to her, willingly (without any hesitant) she accepted him too. Awwwwwwww… And their career took off!
This KBS2 drama special is not only showcasing the hardest part of their love and working life, but also showcasing how much they have to rely to one another to get the success they wanted (or needed). Like I said earlier, this drama is written backward. It started with their successful life but to get where they are today, they had to go through many hurdles in life. At first, I thought Siyun was a gold digger for dumping him for such nonsense reason. You ungrateful woman, I screamed! But after awhile, she did him a favor as my Tweeter friend, Be said. She pushed him to be success and he did the same too for her career. Without him as a songwriter, she wouldn’t be where she is now. It is a win-win for both of them *happy sigh* Great success love story, in my opinion. For a lite romance-comedy one hour drama, you really get a rich storyline out of Cupid Factory. Why can’t they make more dramas like this? I like it! It’s a great watch in a rainy (or snowy) day! And a special shoutout to the helmet *claps* for doing such a great job and to Roomba for continuously working its butt off to clean up the house! Hehehe… now you wanna watch it, don’t ya? *wink*
