javabeans: So remember when the SBS drama Angel Eyes wanted to cast Lee Jun-ki and Han Ji-min and we were all excited and interested?
javabeans: Well life needs an undo button because they’re out—and now it’s Lee Sang-yoon (Goddess of Fire Jung-yi) and Gu Hye-sun (Take Care of Us, Captain).
girlfriday: NO. Whoops, sorry, did I say that out loud?
javabeans: Only in unison with about a thousand of the rest of us. They’re not finalized-finalized, but it sounds like they’re pretty close to finalized, which finalizes MY decision not to watch it.
girlfriday: You know, I wasn’t really keen on the super-duper melo plot anyway, so…
javabeans: You mean the blindness and the eye donation and the long-lost first lovers being reunited after she regains her sight and becomes a rescue worker?
girlfriday: And how her father killed his mother, making their love doomed?
javabeans: But I was willing to hang in there for the PD of Will It Snow For Christmas, which took a convoluted tragic-melo plotline and did something sweet and sensitive with it…
girlfriday: I’ll be honest, I was mostly in it for Lee Jun-ki.
javabeans: Yes. Of course. It was mostly him. But now the bigger point seems to be not the PD’s creds but the writer’s, since, well, Boys Before Flowers. It explains a lot, really.
girlfriday: Well, one less drama to worry about. Maybe Lee Jun-ki can go join the My Girl Reunion Party instead.
javabeans: OMG yes. Oh wait omg no. I didn’t love Lee Jun-ki in My Girl (so persistent! So dramatic! So in need of a clue!) but I adore him now, so that would just hurt too much. And we can’t have that. Although honestly, a My Girl reunion party sounds legit awesome, even with subsequent pain issues…
javabeans: Right. Sorry. I can’t be trusted in any matters pertaining to My Girl, apparently. Back to Angel Eyes… Not to deter everyone else out there who is inexplicably and unreasonably happy about any of this news, of course. If that’s you, well, y’all can catch Angel Eyes in April when it replaces Thrice Married Woman.
girlfriday: All two of you.
