With less than a month to go before its weekend premiere on SBS, the production of Secret Garden has been busy last week, dropping official stills, opening its official online website, and now dropping the first two teaser trailers on us.
The pace feels fast and furious, and likely won’t slow down until the first episode premieres on November 13, 2010. Below are the two teaser trailers. All I have to say is two words: CITY HALL. What do I mean by that? Anyone who has seen City Hall knows that the drama took 4 episodes to reveal its hand, and was so startlingly slap-stick in its early episodes that many people dismissed it outright until word-of-mouth about its true too-awesome-to-believe love story brought everyone back into the fold. My first impression of SG mirrors my first impression of City Hall – and that is a good thing considering City Hall is my personal favorite K-drama of all-time.
The trailers for SG make it seem like its got shenanigans aplenty and zaniness all-around. Knowing Kim Eun Sook, she’ll be using humor and goofiness to set the stage for her trump card – a love story that make us swoon and then swoon some more. I know her modus operandi – it might not work, but she ALWAYS goes for epic love stories.

What I tell myself at the end of the day is simply to keep the faith. It might take a few epiosdes to gell, but ultimately, I know Kim Eun Sook has so much experience on her hands she’ll know how to guide this story and tap into the awesome talented cast she has on hand.
