My Girl

My Girl (2006)
Korean Drama

Director: Jun Ki Sang

Lee Dong Wook - Seol Gong Chan
Lee Da Hae - Joo Yoo Rin
Lee Joon Ki - Seo Jung Woo
Park Si Yeon - Kim Seo Hyun

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Episodes: 16


: The story starts with Yoorin rushing to the airport. She is helping her friend delay a flight so that the tourists of her friend will not miss their flight. Out of ideas, she plays a damsel in distress, who is apparently mourning her impending death and her dying wish to see her boyfriend who is apparently on the flight. And so after much crying and the entire airport empathizing with her, she gets to get on board the plane to look for her boyfriend who never really existed. As she walks, she realizes she cannot find anyone and pretends to faint. Alas, she faints beside the seat of our male lead, Seol Gongchan, who knows a liar when he sees one. Although their first encounter is weird, it doesn't leave much of an impression in each other's mind.

Later, however, when Gongchan has to entertain a bunch of Chinese visitors and realizes he has no translator, he engages the services of Yoorin coincidentally and through Yoorin, his potential Chinese investors have a great time at the L'Avenuel Hotel branch in Jeju, and Yoorin has much credit to claim for it.

After a series of comical events including Yoorin staying at his hotel lodge without paying, and Yoorin selling his hotel fruityard's oranges to make a small profit (to clear her father's debts again), Gongchan's impression of Yoorin is one of a cheat and he would want to do anything to distance himself from her.

But then word from mainland Korea is that his grandfather is dying and at his bedside, Seol Woong, through his respirator, can only meekly repeat that he must not and cannot die until he sees his granddaughter again.

Driven by desperation and his love for his grandfather, Gongchan will do anything to ease his burden. When pointed out by his secretary that Yoorin bears a resemblance to his aunt, Gongchan hatches a plan to pass off Yoorin as his grandfather's long-lost granddaughter whilst he carries on searching for the real one.

Oh, "My Girl." This is the best drama when it comes to comedy. The writers are great comedic writers, they also did "Delightful Girl, Choon Hyung." I also love the symbolism they used with the snow globe.

this was a very funny comedic drama. lee da hae really makes the whole thing work if not for her it wouldnt be half as good. my only problem with it was i felt towards the end it lost a bit of steam and i had to struggle thru to reach the end. the story seemed much too long and just made me impatient to finish it.
