________________________________________________________________________

I was hesitant before but after 6 awesome episodes, I decided that I must recap this drama. It is too good for me to let others who do not really appreciate it do the job.

I have to admit, even as a hardcore Yoon Eun Hye’s warriors that I am, her latest dramas – My Fair Lady and Lie to Me – are not appealing to me. Part of this may be from the fact that she didn’t really choose to do those dramas, but due to the circumstances at those given times, she ended up doing it because of her loyalty.

With My Fair Lady, Eunhye was too late to deny her involvement as the news report came out right after she received the script. And as a promise to her fans, she eventually agreed to star in it. The script was originally about 3 sisters and a gold-digging butler and it was titled Lady Castle, a suspense romance rather than a rom-com. The Lee Kim Production was under a lot of scandal controversies at the moment. The writers were replaced, the script got changed, and solely because of her loyalty, Eunhye decided to stick with it.

My Fair Lady, as we all know, suffered from bad and inconsistent writing. Though the rating department was still considered successful, opening with 17% and ending with 19%

Same as Lie to Me, with her loyalty, Yoon Eun Hye decided to stick with Verdi Media where she initially signed the contract for a remake of Chinese movie, Tian Mi MiLove Song, and star with another hallyu star, Park Yong Ha. We all heard about the tragic suicide of Park Yong Ha and the production suffered from being unable to replace him. Yoon Eun Hye of course decided to help them out by promising she will wait for them, and eventually starred in a new drama opposite Kang Ji Hwan. Lie to Me also suffered from bad writing and I still do not really understand the true plot. With that being said, I must admit that the chemistry between the leads were off the chart.

I was already looking forward to I Miss You since I heard of the casting of Park Yoochun. Many of you probably already knew I am a big big fan of DBSK. It’s not every day that you get to see your favorite actress and a member from your favorite band in the same story. I was ready to go down with that ship… that is until the casting of Yoo Seung Ho as second lead. I have only seen the boy acting like a boy in his dramas and I was worried about the chemistry between him and Eunhye considering the 8-9 years gap. But after watching the episodes, I immediately jump ship. (LOL Sorry Yoochun-ah)

The story was well-written; the filmography is just flawless; the child cast did an amazing job that I would continue watching it even if this is just a teen drama; and the chemistry between the leads are almost tangible. So from today onwards till the end of this heartbreaking drama, I’ll do some recaps and post related videos or articles for your pleasure. Feel free to comment or leave a request. 😀

  1. Yup, agreed with what you said. “Missing You” is one of a great works in the making IMO and have potential to be a “classic” one if it well executed. Glad that YEH finally star in a good project since Coffee Prince. I’m looking forward for your recap of the 7th epi 🙂

    • Thanks for the reply 🙂
      It’s definitely going down as a unique of its own kind. There is no drama like this, at least none that I have seen or can think of. So I think it’d be one that will be talked about for years, whether for the bad side of it or the good side of it.

    • Well, that’s basicly the main reason I want to recap it. To do justice for it.
      I felt like other big reacppers, who I shall not name, didn’t do justice for it or simply blind by their own bias. So I’m just gonna take the matters to my hands LOL

      And thank you for welcoming me 🙂
