Lee Je-hoon confirms drama return with Secret Door
girlfriday: So it’s doubleplusgood news day! Lee Je-hoon is back from the army, and it’s official — he’s going to star in Secret Door!
javabeans: Hold on. *breathes deeply* *needs a moment* *collecting self*
girlfriday: *taps fingers impatiently*
javabeans: *still needs a moment* *self may not be collectable*
girlfriday: Do I have to have this conversation by myself?
javabeans: Okay, okay, fine. I’m pulling it together. I am, if nothing, a professional.
girlfriday: Where’s the scream?
javabeans: All the screaming is on the inside. It’s silent and torturous. Maybe that’s a good segue into the role he’ll be playing, of Crown Prince Sado.
girlfriday: You mean because he gets locked in a rice chest and left to die a slow, agonizing death?
javabeans: Like I said, silent and torturous. It’ll be amazing. Okay, also horrifying, but also amazing to watch Han Seok-kyu playing his hardass, domineering king of a father, Yeongjo, making for a pretty intense conflict between him and his idealistic son. (Yes, this drama is taking some creative liberties by making Sado the tragic wronged party, and not, say, violent and maybe sexually depraved. Fiction! Or should I say, per the Korean, faction? (Fact + fiction.))
girlfriday: Or conspiracy! You never know! I’m looking forward to the drama’s take in rewriting history from Sado’s point of view, especially since Lee Je-hoon will do tragically wronged prince so well.
javabeans: For sure, in this story, Imma go with “Sado was framed!” Oppa didn’t mean it!
girlfriday: Is it too much to hope that the secret door will be in the rice chest?
javabeans: OOH. So Oppa escaped and lived a happy carefree life under a new identity and didn’t die a horrible, grisly death? Yes, that is my new truth.
girlfriday: They call it fusion for a reason!
