First off, where is Jin Joo? More specifically where are the super cute moments from Jin Joo and Chan wook together? Huh show?…
So things have been humming along as (frustratingly) expected in Operation Proposal till we got to episode 11 and my head almost exploded. I kinda of knew it was coming with the introduction of Yoo Bin the team doctor who fancied herself in love with Baek Ho…then conveniently disappeared without even one scene after breaking up Baek Ho and Yi Seul. She served her purpose. Probably the worst side character in this drama. If only she were the only problem and not also our leads, in particular Ham Yi Seul, I could deal.
So after Yi Seul is shocked to see Yoo Bin putting the moves on Baek Ho, she runs away crying. I can understand this. I probably would have done the same. But I would not have run straight to Jin Won who conveniently appears when Yi Seul is in distress.
What exactly is the meaning of this Yi Seul? Why are you hanging out with Jin Won. I know he’s hot and he’s feeding you delicious pasta and giving you a rendition of ‘my first piano recital,’ but still. He’s not Baek Ho, the man who just confessed his passionate love for you followed by some making out in front of the fire, which you did not object to in the least bit. Stop making googly eyes with the coach when you’re in love with another man!
I can’t stand the plot line with Yoo Bin as the “scheming woman” after a man who obviously doesn’t give a rat’s behind about her. It’s so unimaginative and desperate. Totally lame. I also am annoyed by Yi Seul. She acts like she hasn’t known Baek Ho for his entire life. I know she’s got lots of mixed emotions, but I’m sorry, you trust the person you know first and foremost, not random scheming BS from some strange woman you don’t know. Gahhh! The boy already confessed his love to her and still she drops him like that. And what does she do? Runs into the arms of another man crying her eyes. What is the use of all that making out in front of the fire when you can’t even fight for your relationship? I’m beginning to think there isn’t anything Baek Ho can do to keep her cause she doesn’t want to be there. Love takes 2 Yi Seul!
I’m all for flawed character’s, but there’s a fine line between the underdog you root for and a spineless pile of mush who can’t bother to even try to fight for the love she holds so deeply. I want to root for the heroine and lately I just can’t root for Yi Seul when she’s so apathetic even about her own love.
I did crack up once though through all my frustration. When Baek Ho was “speeding” to the airport in a taxi and that’s of course when Grandpa decides to cross the street. Hilarious. All I could think was at least this show has a sense of humor, although it seems to involve torturing Baek Ho.
