Ahh, so this is how they’re going to introduce conflict for Can’t Lose’s extension.
Eom Ki-joon (Scent of a Woman, Dream High) is making a recurring appearance on the drama starting from today’s Episode 14 through Episode 17, playing Eun-jae’s (Choi Ji-woo) ex-boyfriend. That means he’ll probably mess with the couple’s budding reconciliation in the same way that Lee Soo-kyung‘s guest appearance as Hyung-woo’s (Yoon Sang-hyun) ex-girlfriend rocked the boat in the drama’s early episodes.
On the one hand: Manufactured conflict, boooooo. On the other hand: Eom Ki-joon!
I love him, and think he has a wonderful presence no matter what role he’s playing, whether it’s cold and collected (Hero), dorky and bumbling (Dream High), or my favorite, cold-on-the-outside and dorky-on-the-inside (Scent of a Woman). I miss my Dr. Poopy. Eom’s always a nice bonus, even if the appearance is as unremarkable as his cameo in Miss Ripley earlier this year (he was fine, his prosecutor character was fine — it just seemed like a waste of his talent for a role that could’ve been played by any no-name rookie).
But since the bottom line is more Eom Ki-joon, I guess I’m onboard.
