Fated To Love You… in bed
Huh, adding “in bed” to the end of everything totally works for drama titles. Try it. *waits for you to get to Big Man and God’s Gift* Snerk. The latest teaser for MBC’s upcoming rom-com remake Fated to Love You finally gets us to the premise of the show — Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara drink their weight in soju, climb into bed together, and then wake up the next morning horrified to realize they slept with a total stranger. Oh, drunken one-night stands, where would drama romance be without you?
Because this is dramaland, that one-night stand naturally leads to a pregnancy. I know we’re to blame Fate for all these coincidences, but I wonder if we counted, how many so-called acts of Fate in rom-coms are actually just decisions laced with liquor. Anyway, that’s how the chaebol prince and the plain office girl begin their topsy-turvy romance, where they’re getting to know each other while trying to prepare for parenthood.
I’m a little concerned at the overwhelming number of commenters who have described the original Taiwanese drama as melodramatic. The remake keeps being called cheery and light, and I’m expecting a strong comedic bent, but now I’m bracing myself for someone to pull the rug out from under me. Don’t tell me what happens! I like to hope for the best, and this couple is too cute to be spending half the drama in tears, right? RIGHT? Lalalalalala, I can’t hear you!
