It is 3 pm somewhere, right? If you have seen Hirugao, I am sure you know what I mean. The Koreans aka Channel A decided to do a remake of Hirugao with the same title: Love Affairs in the Afternoon. Yup, a forbidden love drama that can be so romantic, so innocent, so naive yet so nerve-racking. I feel so nervous as if I am in this affairs with them as well. So far, 12 episodes have aired and I have been nervous watching it ever since especially episode 6, 7 and 8. I had to take a breather because my heart was palpitating so hard for them.
When I first saw the trailer, I knew I must watch this movie no matter what. I fell in love right away with Son Ye Jin’s portrayal as Princess Dok Hye. Her stunning beauty and her elegant and poised character struck me immediately. The trailer got me into tears. And when I finally saw the movie, my heart and soul were moved by it. Wait, I was also angry! Angry at how the Japanese treated the Princess and angry at how the citizens were treated.
I started this show because I was influenced by Grace and Mari. My undying love for Gummy was too strong and Grace’s fear that I will combust led me to start Jealousy Incarnate. I sort of agree with her. It was difficult to breathe. Gummy took over my life completely I couldn’t focus on anything. And if you notice, I have not been blogging almost a month because not only I was busy with work, I just couldn’t focus on my writing. I blame Park Bo Gum *laughs*.
Anyway, let’s not talk about Gummy. Or else this post will turn into another Gummy post *giggles*. And his post will come up soon. Jealousy Incarnate. An attempt to get me to fall for the second lead, Jeong Won, played by handsome looking Go Gyeong Po. Well, clearly my heart did not sink in with him. He is a puppy alright. But not for me. His character is too char for me. He has this romance aura but somehow I found Jeong Won a love beggar. As a humble chaebol, Jeong Won is the man of of your dream. He is generous with smile, generous with his money, generous with love. But his generosity is overshadowed by Hwa Shin, his nemesis played by Jo Jung Suk. Let me just say, I dislike Jo Jung Suk and his character in this drama is pretty chauvinistic! I just can’t!
As of last night, 19 episodes have aired and I have seen up to episode 18. I have decided to quit this drama because of its continuous tug and pull between the main characters, the second leads and the third leads. Yes, there are three triangle love in this show. Between Hwa Shin, Na Ri and Jeong Won, between Seong Sook, chefu and Ja Yeong, and between Red, Seong Sook and Ja Yeong. The show is romantically cute, funny and mature yet dark but I don’t think it is for me. I’m just tired of it.
But what good about this drama is the OST. Oh my God… I would love to own it! That’s all. For now, goodbye Jealousy Incarnate. Thanks for the laughs. If I ever continue to watch it again, I’ll just FF to chefu scenes. He’s hawttttttt! EOP (end of post) *giggles*
