If we don’t count his cameo in “Delightful Girl Choon Hyang”, then MBC’s 2005 weekend drama “Let’s get married” is Park Si Hoo’s debut drama. This 51-episode drama was broadcast on Saturday and Sunday from 2005.10.08 to 2006.04.02. PSH plays the role of Jae Ho, a character who appears halfway through the drama as the love interest of Jung Suk Soon (played by Chu Sang Mi) and, according to many news reports, helps raise the ratings.
The PSH cut here is like a two-hour movie. We absolutely adore the very young, very green, very raw PSH, although still inadequate as an actor (as he himself readily admits) but already very much PSH (if you know what we mean.) The shapeless clothes, the baggy jeans, the corny dialogue …. cannot hide the brilliance of the emerging great actor. We find him delightful and refreshing.
If you can read the Chinese subtitles, you’re in for a Sunday treat. Sorry, can’t find English subtitles. Even if you don’t understand Chinese, you can still watch it like a silent movie (I just watched “The Artist”, so it should be no problem for you.) No, not a silent movie, because you can hear PSH’s voice.
To help you, let us give you a few pointers about the characters and plot:
The PSH character Jae Ho is 26 years old and the woman Suk Soon is 6 years his senior. She’s a workaholic, a senior executive in an advertising PR agency, and he’s jobless. He doesn’t like working in an office, but he’s an expert in housework — he can cook, sew, knit …. puts a lot of women to shame. So their unconventional relationship starts from a gathering of university alumni. She’s been hurt in love before, so she’s wary, and he’s very candid, forthright, genuine, sincere. Their relationship is very simple (to him) and inexplicable (to her). Before Hwang Tae Hee in QOR, there’s Jung Soon Suk in LGM. Why do scriptwriters think PSH has a “thing” for older women?
We have 56.COM and TUDOU here for you to choose. Hope those of you who had problems with TUDOU are happy with 56.COM. (How’s this for “fan service”?)
If you have problems with any scene, please holler! We’ve written a few notes that may help you — not a complete synopsis (you don’t need that), just clarification in a couple of places.
– Young man and older woman meet, they start dating (going to the movies), on and off — no explanation required.
– At the disco he says he increasingly finds her to be more and more “like a woman”.
– 1st restaurant scene – He gives her a little present to congratulate her on her promotion and he asks her to go steady with him.
– 2nd restaurant scene – He gives her the keys to his apartment.
– At her office he again gives her the keys to his apartment which she didn’t take last time.
– He insists on treating her for helping him find work. He gives her a scarf which he spent 3D/3N knitting and he handcuffs them so she can’t run away. Later on parting he tells her the handcuffs mean he is her slave and hopes the scarf will give her warmth because of all the efforts he spent on it.
– First time in his apartment, it’s his birthday. She says she has no BD present for him and he says she’s already given (the kiss the other day.)
– Second time in his apartment, she gives him his BD present – a painting which he says he can’t put up because he doesn’t like hammering nails.
– Third time in his apartment he prepares a lot of food and he tells her he prefers to do housework rather than work in an office. He says they’ll make a perfect couple (she works in an office and he works at home) and asks if she wants to get married, at which point she gets up to leave.
– When she is trapped in the malfunctioning elevater, she calls him and asks if he really just wants to go to bed with her. She tells him she’s been jilted by a man she loved wholeheartedly and she doesn’t believe in love anymore because when love cools down, there is nothing left. So what is she to him? He tells her very seriously that he has never considered her just a sex object but a life partner. He says: “I love you.” and “Even if love cools, it won’t be cold. I love you.”
– In the restaurant she says: “Why do I sometimes feel my boyfriend is like my son?” and he says: “That’s the good thing about it: sometimes a husband, sometimes a son.”
– When he brings pizza to her office, she rushes him off. He asks why she doesn’t introduce him to her colleague and if she is ashamed of him. She says he still has to get rid of his girlfriend and he says he doesn’t mean to do that.
– He waits for her at her office building and drags her to a restaurant where he introduces her to his girlfriend – his mother.
To be continued next Sunday
