And…..we have history yet to be made again. Child-acting prodigy turned legit heavy-weight adult actress Moon Geun Young has decided to do her first rom-com K-drama – Mary Stayed Out All Night. Cue me squeeing with delight and hopping up and down over here.
Seriously folks, don’t be debbie downers on the genre or how sweet light romantic comedies bring smiles to people’s faces regardless of their depth or breadth. Moon Geun Young continues to broaden her acting portfolio, challenging herself even on comparatively light fare. It’s too bad Cinderella Unni turned out to be a kinda a mess script-wise.
What makes this news utterly so squee-worthy is because her co-star would be yet another teen actor prodigy as well – Jang Geun Seok. Oh vey, these two giving acting a good name (well, Moon more than Jang, who can be spotty at times, but always very memorable, even if for the wrong reasons). There is not much information out there at this time, except the script will be penned by the same writer who did Goong and Love and Marriage, both of which I enjoyed but didn’t lovelovelove.
I’m just hoping the source material doesn’t drive me bonkers. My own personal idiosyncracies made me HATE Full House, both the drama and the manhwa. The same manhwa writer penned Mary Stayed Out All Night, so I hope this manhwa is low on the histrionics, the ridiculous plot-contrivances, and the painful OTP chemistry.
