Secret Garden writer not thrilled about rampant plot speculation
The popularity of SBS’s Secret Garden has the internet abuzz with speculations and spoilers about future episodes, such as the nature of the body-switch, the motives of Ra-im’s dead father, and the possibility of the dreaded Cancer making an appearance in the storyline.
And while speculation is to be expected with hit shows, it has writer Kim Eun-sook just a little exasperated. She wrote a light mock-threat on Twitter this week, “These days there’s a lot of talk about the ending. There are a lot of fake endings running rampant, when I haven’t even written it yet. If you keep this up, I’m just gonna break down. I’m having a case of the Monday mornings.” (Note: her “break down” comment is part of a pun and therefore half-joking.)
I’ve read a number of creative theories here about possible future developments — is Dad trying to keep Ra-im’s body safe, or does he want to make Joo-won really deserve her love? Or perhaps he’s trying to teach her an important life lesson — though it seems we haven’t gotten as outlandish as some of the Korean fans. For instance, Lovers In Paris is not far from the memories of some of the viewers [LIP SPOILER AHEAD], and there are some who wonder if, like in that drama, this whole series is just a dream in Ra-im’s mind. Or, perhaps she died (?!) in the first episode and this is all a product of Joo-won’s overactive imagination.
Okay, if that happened, not only will I swear off all Kim Eun-sook dramas FOREVER, I will personally have some words with a certain voodoo doll that I will have to learn how to make and then curse. (And curse at.)
