Potential My Girl reunion in MBC’s upcoming Hotel King

javabeans: So apparently Lee Da-hae is looking at new dramas, like this new tidbit about her considering an MBC weekender called Hotel King. Wait, that sounds familiar… Hey, is that the Lee Dong-wook…?

girlfriday: MY GIRL!!! …Redux?

javabeans: OH RIGHT. Wait! What? Ooh! Huh? I need a second to gather my thoughts.

girlfriday: So… Lee Da-hae might be reuniting with Lee Dong-wook in a drama where he plays the exact same character as he did in My Girl?

javabeans: Screw the drama, I just want them to fall in love and date and maybe get married now. There were whisperings that they dated after My Girl wrapped, and I choose to purposely not delve into that story because I would rather just believe it happened. Maybe this will be their second chance at happiness.

girlfriday: Maybe it’s better that they didn’t date the first time around, because then that would just be awkward.

javabeans: Orrrrr… if they DID date, it would just shorten the dancing-around period and cut right to the chase where they just get married or whatever.

girlfriday: But the dance is fun!

javabeans: They can dance all they want in the DRAMA, in real life I want results, pronto. Also I have been waiting eight years apparently.

girlfriday: Clearly what we really want is a meta drama where they’re actors falling in love behind the scenes.

javabeans: See the thing is, My Girl isn’t my favorite drama of all time and I actually think Lee Da-hae and Lee Dong-wook have been way better in other shows, but for whatever reason I have SUCH a huge soft spot for that drama, and specifically them together in that drama, and that carries over into the rest of their work and lives (obviously, based on this post, although to be fair I didn’t actually realize how much I wanted them to be together until this post).

girlfriday: Do you need a moment?

javabeans: Carry on without me. *fans self* *dreams of the My Girl epilogue that should have happened, because dammit if that 5-minute ending wasn’t enough* Okay I’m back.

girlfriday: Should we maybe talk about this show now?

javabeans: …fine.

girlfriday: Wait, is this a mystery drama?

javabeans: Whaaa? Well, I guess that’s my fault for not bothering to read before getting lost in fantasies of My Girl: The Married Years. So apparently the hero is a guy abandoned by his father, which turns him cold, and then he becomes a successful hotelier.

girlfriday: Cold chaebol, check. Is our heroine a tour guide, a professional liar, or cousin-impersonator, by any chance?

javabeans: The stories tell us nothing. NOTHING! I guess we only have our imaginations to rely upon. Apparently Lee Yubi is another casting contender for the lead, and okay, I actually like her more than Lee Da-hae, BUT NOT THIS TIME. Lee Yubi can go do something else and leave my fantasies alone.

girlfriday: Hahaha. Clearly reason has no place here.

javabeans: I think really, this story has just proven (rather surprisingly, in fact) that I like My Girl a whole lot more than I thought I did. I don’t really care about this story at all, as it turns out, I just want it to happen, with these two leads. Now if Lee Da-hae declines (Lee Dong-wook appears to be fixed), then all bets are off. Otherwise I’ll see you all here on MBC weekends, beginning March 29. Not that I promise recaps or anything, or at least recaps that are about Hotel King and not My Girl.

girlfriday: I think we just discovered the one thing you’d actually write fanfiction about.

Oh, I forgot My Girl was my introduction to Lee Jun Ki. I remember when he first appeared on screen my first thought was "Oh you are wayyyy too pretty for your own good." He's matured well since then--still pretty but in a masculine way.

I am at work right now and was planning to watch My Girl as soon as I get back home. My Girl was my first love of Kdramas. I have watched it 11 times - 4 times when I was alone at home with nothing better to do and 7 times whenever a friend of mine stayed over at my apartment. I have watched better dramas since then. But it will always have a special place in my heart. Glad to see others feeling the same way :) And I am not sure if I will watch this Hotel King - the actors have indeed matured and will not be the adorable Gong Chan - Yoo Rin couple anymore. :(

I definitely am. I remember I had such a problem starting this drama because Lee Da-Hee made me cringe at first in that opening airplane scene, but SOMEHOW I ended up adoring her character so much. And then when Lee Dong-Wook began softening I was just a puddle. They are so cute together. A part of me is iffy about this drama because I don't want them to ruin it. Somehow I'm afraid that their character's won't live up to my love of their original My Girl characters. But if they throw a few good kisses in there then I won't complain!

It was also my first drama and have very fond memories of it. Although it got way too dramatic towards the end, if I remember correctly. Sigh...I'm ambivalent about them together in a drama again. Their My Girl characters are too fixed in my brain, I might have a hard time adjusting.

Javabeans, I am so down with you on My Girl. The show that captured my heart years before I even signed on to the whole K-wave proper. Also the reason I have an eternal soft spot for Lee Dong-wook and Lee Jun-ki. I would definitely check out a show with Lee Dong-wook and Lee Da-hae in it just to see how their chemi's changed.

Almost all (if not all) Hong sisters drama have ah-mazing main leads chemistry that I tend to ship them all in RL. Like JGS-PSH, LSG-SMA, SJS-GHJ, etc. Haven't seen My Girl yet since I'm not a fan of Lee Da-hae, but damn I've never seen JB ship so hard for a real life couple lol. That in itself makes me wanna see the drama.

Lee Yu-bi is awesome though. So if she doesn't end up doing this, I really really want her star as a main lead in another one soon.

I'm one of the few who liked Lee Dong-wook better than Lee Jun-ki in My Girl (I still do) and would love a drama reunion for LDW and Lee Da-hae.

I'm also one of the few who liked My Girl more than DGCH maybe because I watched it first and because I hated the villain more in DGCH than in MG. Maybe that's why I still see UTW until now as that hated villain and don't watch any of his dramas. So if LDH declines, may I call on The Hong Sisters and the dramagods to make another drama for these two please?

If I didn't see LDW with Song Ji-hyo in Running Man, I would've shipped him with Lee Da-hae 100%. But I saw those two, and whether or not SJH has a boyfriend in real life, I like her with LDW. Sorry to those who are shipping him with his SoaW costar Kim Sun-ah, but it's either Da-hae or Ji-hyo for me. ;)

I feel the exact same way as you - I prefer LDW to LJK and My Girl to DGCH, and I haaaated UTW's character in DGCH. I can only think of one drama character that I've ever hated more, and that was Liu Xiang in Miracle Healers (cdrama). I feel sort of bad that I still cringe whenever I see UTW because I'm sure he's a nice person irl, and I'm not usually the sort of person who can't separate actors and their characters, but I hated the character so much I just can't get rid of the negative associations.

I think that is why My Girl works better for me as a drama, because in in DGCH the main leads were kept apart solely by the endless plotting of the evil secondaries, and in My Girl it was their own white lie spiralling out of control which kept them apart. And although I know there's nothing realistic about a chaebol hiring a con artist to pretend to be his cousin, that conflict felt more organic to me. Not that I don't still love DGCH as well, but I feel that in My Girl the Hong Sisters took what was good about DGCH and refined its weak spots to create a drama that was almost perfect.

Aw yeah I've loved Lee Jun-ki in recent years, but I remember in that drama he was always switching from playboy-mode to angst-mode. Whenever I go and watch My Girl, I always feel the need to watch a bit of Arang after it because My Girl just doesn't fulfill my LJK love.

OOOOF regarding the UTW issue, yeah. I've always had that same problem. Can We Love? is slowly healing me and he's growing on me more and more, but I do feel like my love for him is very affected by DGCH and always will be. It's like I have respect for him, but I can never get myself to fan-girl over him.

Haha. I didn't realize how common the My Girl love was around here, but i guess it makes sense. Yea it was also one of my first dramas too and I loved it to bits, it's also why I have a strange never ending love for Lee Da Hae. I'll watch the first few episodes of any drama she's in (recently it wad Iris 2 and Miss Ripley) but sadly I just wasn't feeling the storylines. Buf omg if these two get back together for a drama I will storm through non-sensical and makjang filled plots just to see them get (another) happy ending.

DAMN IT! I need to stop commenting. I need to go watch. My Girl has always been fairly high up on my list in terms of favorite Hong Sister's dramas simply because I enjoyed the couple so much. I could care less about the couples from HGD, FC, YAB, and even Best Love getting together in real life, but I was always oddly passionate about these two.
