Fall in Love With You Again / 转身说爱你
While sitting at the airport, I’ve finally gotten some time to write about this drama. After watching about six episodes, I can conclude that this drama is not bad, but nothing to write home about either. What it is, is a good filler of a drama if you are waiting to watch another one. The story is about Ming Yu, who has a unhappy home life since she got married early to a man who is very nice and laid-back, but with not career aspirations. Their family is not broke, but their finances are not great either especially with Chen Yi, the husband, who keeps on lending money to friends. Ming Yu, at age 36, is that nagging wife with a kid, who wishes that her husband will stop trying to fix his boat and man up for the family.
One day, she gets into a car accident and is thrown back in time, only 14 years though, but looks like she is trying for Bu Bu Jing Xin Part 3. In her younger body, she is able to try and turn her life around. Instead of marrying for love, she vows to be a self-made women by entering a advertising company. She meets Qu Hao, a second generation chaebol who doesn’t care for the family business and has his own ideas. He hires her and begins to admire her work ethic and ideas. With a ahjumma mind and heart inside a young body, she makes an interesting paradox of a women. She has knowledge of the future, and tries to change the destiny and paths of events in the past. While her career is starting to soar, her new decisions have caused others around her to change as well.
As this drama as a country cross-over, we have Choi Siwon of Super Junior playing one of the main leads. While not a super amazing actor, I find him very tolerable and endearing. However, with the language barrier and obvious dubbing once again, he does sometimes use too many hand gestures to get his point across. And sometimes the audio does not match up his mouth, which is expected, but distracting for a native speaker such as I. Even though Ming Yu played by Luo Dan gets a bit screechy at times, it too fits her character as she was an ahjumma who was worn by life. However, we see a different vulnerability and desperation to change her future. Qu Hao played by Justin Yuan is also so very adorable and smexy, I am very much enjoying his lady’s man character. Since this drama is called, Fall In Love With You AGAIN, I expect the endgame will be Min Yu with Chen Yi again, but hey we never know what hijinks will happen!
