Beauty Inside: Twosome? Threesome? :P

I told kooriyuki that we must use the threesome image of Se-kye (both the male/ female) and Do-jae snuggling in bed as the feature image in our post, so here it is. [kooriyuki: credits to jTBC’s official Instagram account] Beauty is my go-to show weekly, cos, who doesn’t enjoy a fun rom-com — especially when the horror flicks are starting to become boring. (yawn, more about them in a while)

Generally, I love everything in Beauty. While it plays up the stereotypes — we have the money packet throwing mum (ok, make it bank transfer instead), the bitchy-too-perfect second female lead, and the cold chaebol — they are seriously undercut in the narrative. The bank transfer potential mother-in-law ends up having to BEG Se-kye to take back her son, cos she (rightfully? wrongfully?) assumes he has taken an interest in (ahem) teenage boys. (pwahahaa) Being with a “slutty actress” is far better than being a “gay”, right? (add paedophilia to the gay too)

And the bitchy female lead, who is always overly made up with puffy armour-business tops, turns out to be a slob behind the scenes. And who should she unwittingly hire to pick up her panties from the mess on the floor but a guy whom she erroneously thinks is interested in her — only to find out later, he wants to be a celibate priest. (lol) And said soon-to-be priest isn’t above flashing his godly charms at the ladies too. I dunno if Eun-ho does it on purpose, but he should be well aware of the amount of swooning that he causes in his wake. And the silly backlight and churchly hymns bg music that accompany him add to the funny quotient.

I can’t wait to see if Sa-ra is able to use her wily charm to make Eun-ho forget for good his godly ambition. If so, she will be positively ADORED by Eun-ho’s mum (aka her potential mother-in-law), who is against her only son taking a vow of celibacy (cos in Asian family, the paternal passing down of family name is very important).

Lastly, the cold cheabol Mr Seo. He is on the surface, the typical Kdrama male lead in ANY romcom. Filthy rich, suave, and arrogant to a fault. Yet…when we learn his so-called “arrogance” is due largely to his being unable to recognise people (that resting bitch face,  cos he really dunno who he is seeing), that takes a large peg off that “chilly” demeanour. But Do-jae does indeed have this sardonic humour which is super fun to watch. His poker faced restraint (even when he is aware he has fallen for Se-kye) is a huge contrast against the overly emotive Se-kye, who spills the beans on her latest deep, dark secrets whenever she drinks. (which, frankly, is a lot of times)

And oh boy, it’s only ep6, and we have our first hot kiss in a row to come? I can’t wait for the week to flash by so I can watch the next 2eps.
