Welcome everyone back to the 10th day of the challenge~~~ Today’s question is:
Drama pairing that you thought wouldn’t have any chemistry, but they did.
When I saw this question I finally rejoiced! Happy to know that the question is a much more light-hearted one. Thinking over the question, there were a number of pairings that I was certainly doubtful of, but was most certainly proven wrong about.
1. Jang Ha Na ❤ Han Yoo Chan (One Well Raised Daughter)
I had thought that this couple wouldn’t work out for a number of reasons. Firstly, the slight age difference between our two main leads worried me (since that usually makes things slightly awkward). Secondly, I had never watched any other project before that stars Tae Gon, so I had my doubts on his abilities…which I absolutely regret. Yoon Chan as a character was amazing (as written in my review for the drama) and his care and devoted love for Hana/Eun Seung is truly commendable. Although this pairing drifts from time to time throughout the drama, I still believed that they both had quite a bit of chemistry between them. Despite the rollercoaster ride this drama put me through, I pulled through at the end of the day because of this pairing :3
2. Shin Yoon Bok ❤ Kim Hong Do (Painter in the Wind)
The other I must share with you all would be this lovely pairing in this lovely drama. Although there wasn’t a very strong romance arch in this drama, the chemistry between these two really surprised me, and made me really root for them. Honestly, this duo was adorable to watch on-screen, despite that evident age difference. I loved how subtle certain gestures were,how everything was implied, as due to their amazing chemistry, every simple action magnified the feels for the audience. I certainly had my doubts for this pairing, simply because of the age differences as well as the ‘gender bender’ component. Anything with a gender bender component tends to make me think twice about picking up certain dramas. Luckily, this was an exception and is certainly an ace drama. I highly recommend it for those who loves learning about the arts during historical periods.
