Blurb: Her Private Life

It takes a rather special, out-of-this-Kdrama-universe Kdrama to get my fingers fly across the keyboard to say something about it. There were a few “close call” ones, but if I could wrestle my way out of its tractor beam’s strength, then it wasn’t compelling enough for me to write.

Until Her Private Life aired on April 10 2019.

The fact that I could only do this entry after the show has completed its run, speaks volumes of its lethal level of spazzing.

That’s right folks.
Spazzing and squeeing about it in between its weekly airing was mandatory 😆

Cliff notes version of this drama:
Sung Deok-mi is a talented chief curator of Cheum Museum of Art, who also happens to lead a double life of a fanatic fangirl of White Ocean’s Cha Shi-An. Not just serious fangirling, but she is also the fansite manager of “Shi-an is My Life” website.

Ryan Gold is a standoffish artist who suffers from Stendhal syndrome after succesfully launching his career as a much-sought after savant. He becomes the new Art Director of Cheum Museum of Art when the current director was suspended due to suspicious embezzlement activities.

After four episodes in, and an unfortunate case of presumption, thanks to an almost sasaeng, news spread like wildfire about Deok-mi and Shi-An’s supposed covert relationship.

Enter Ryan to the rescue by suggesting he and Deok-mi pretend to date to keep off Shi-An’s fanatic fans who threaten to harm her.

Can you see where this is gonna lead down the yellow-brick road? 😀

Would anyone in their sane mind refuse Kim Jae Wook – oh sorry – RYAN GOLD as their pretend boyfriend? o_O

This has been a throughly refreshing KDrama I’ve enjoyed watching in years. There was no dragging makjang episodes, the noble-idiot hiccups, the “we’re from different worlds” angle, the case of mega-miscommunication which would eventually take on a life of its own, memory loss… what else have I left out?

Oh yes! The dragon of a mother-in-law, the vengeful and sharp-clawed ex…

HAHAHAHAHA!! I’ve been watching WAAAAAYYY too many Kdramas!

If you want to witness the journey of forging a friendship, and then the blossoming of romance in one of the most mature manners ever, then plan a marathon binge soon.

Once you’re done with that, BINGE AGAIN!

And having a director who is not shy of including many kissing scenes – and I mean you count those scenes with BOTH your hands – certainly helps with this drama’s tractor beam level.
Heads Up: proceed to YouTube for their numerous Behind The Scenes takes. Freakin’ OMAIGAD 😀

This drama is SO WORTH IT ❤ !!
