[NOT REALLY SPOILERY BUT...]
Oh, this just cracks me up. So. Hard.
Secret Garden watchers will be familiar with Hyun Bin’s obsession (or rather, Joo-won’s) with his expensive, hand-stitched, sequined Italian tracksuit, which everyone else mocks as tacky and unfashionable. Despite the fact that Joo-won has been the butt of many jokes as a result of his Suit of Sparkles, he apparently can’t let go even when his soul has been transported into the body of Ha Ji-won, as we see in these teaser stills from the drama’s upcoming Episode 8.
I know some of you were hoping that once the bodies were switched, Joo-won would use his endless cash flow and sophisticated fashion sense to spiff up Ra-im’s tomboyish, casual wardrobe. I think we set our hopes too high.
What kills me (even more) is that given their size difference, Joo-won has either had to procure another designer sequined extravaganza, or he’s gone out of his way to retrieve his old one and then altered it to fit his new womanly shape.
This drama could do nothing but physical comedy gags between Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won and I would be in heaven.
Secret Garden, which passed the 20% ratings threshold within four episodes, airs on Saturdays and Sundays. As if our weeks weren’t long enough.
