The original My Sassy Girl 엽기적인 그녀 is the queen of popcorn movies and a classic in every sense of the word, which is why it probably doesn’t come as a surprise to many when I say that the hype is real for the upcoming drama remake led by Joo Won, Oh Yeon Seo, Lee Jung Shin and Kim Yoon Hye.
The series follows a rising trend of 100% pre-produced and is expected to premiere in Korea, China (not happening coz of the hallyu ban) and Japan. It tells a budding love story between a cold-hearted scholar who meets a gutsy lady of noble birth and their ensuing romance.
The premise sounds ordinary at best so I’m not exactly sure how the show plans to incorporate much of that one of a kind sass that has turned sassy girl into a commercial success. Regardless, I’m a fan of Oh Yeon Seo and Joo Won who have both done well in rom-coms and I look forward to seeing her charm her way into his heart. For a historical drama buff like me, the Joseon setting and the pretty hanboks are just an added bonus.
