Could Have Been A Great Drama

The music and songs in Spring Waltz were fantastic. I love them all especially Flower and Clementine with its superb arrangement. They definitely compensated for a weak performance from most of the cast.

David Henney would have been perfect as the other man in Park Eun-young's love life except for his constant dialogue switch from English to Korean and back, which didn't make sense at all. How hard is it to memorize a few Korean lines?

Han Hye Joo was a big disappointment as Park Eun-Young, the heroine in the drama. Her acting was bland. Even her emotional love scenes with Yoon Jae-Ha appeared so dry, I felt Seo Do Young deserved a better partner. Should I blame the director for not pushing her hard enough?

Lee So Yeon as the bitchy Song Yi-Na looked too professorial with her glasses and in all aspects, was not a convincing 'other woman' for Seo Do Young.

Among the main characters, only Seo Do Young, as the brilliant pianist with a secret past, made an impact in the drama. He was very impressive in his portrayal as the cold and lonely Yoon Jae-ha. I really felt for him. To think that this was his first major acting role... 3 cheers!

Yet, in spite of most of the cast's shortcomings, I would watch it again, if only to see Seo Do Young, hear his drop-dead voice and listen to the drama's music and songs.

To sum it up, Spring Waltz is the drama that could have been the director's memorable end to a series.

My Girl - Superb Cast esp. Lee Dong Wook

I consider My Girl as the best drama I've seen so far.

The main cast performed a tremendous job in turning an ordinary love-triangle storyline into an interesting romantic comedy drama: Lee Dong Wook's expressive face, Lee Da Hae's comical antics, Lee Jun Ki's and Park Shi Yeon's desperate moments.

Among all of them, I thought Lee Dong Wook gave an outstanding performance. He succeeded in capturing the image of an intense Seol Gong Chan who was fighting an internal battle to understand his emotions while maintaining a cool esterior. I certainly felt for him every step of the way. Because of this, the audience could only surmise when his love for YooRin began to blossom in his heart.

Kudos to the director, screenwriter, etc. They couldn't have chosen a better cast than Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae to perform the main lead stars. These two have such great chemistry together that not even the Rain/Song Hye Kyo tandem of Full House can surpass the electric current that Dong Wook and Da Hae emitted so strongly in My Girl.

I hope to see Dong Wook and Da Hae doing another movie/drama in the near future. I'm sure a lot of drama addicts are looking forward to watching these two performing together again.
