At some point in our kdrama-watching lives, all of us have suffered (or will suffer, if you’ve yet to be afflicted) from Second Lead Syndrome.
You’ll be watching your drama happily enough, secure in the knowledge that the heroine will choose the right guy; the guy who’s been there for her, the silently supportive friend, the one who treats her well and actually – gasp! shock! – seems to like her. But then… then the heroine turns to that other guy, the jackass who’s been making fun of her or ignoring her or making out with her friend and you’ll scream/whimper at the screen: why? Why? For the love of all that’s holy, why?! And that’s when you know: SLS has you firmly in its grasp and it’s not letting go anytime soon.
As you may already have guessed, today’s Thursday Three is all about alternate pairings, the couple that could’ve been, if the hero/heroine had
had half a brain given the second lead the chance to make him/her happy. So: what are your top three alternate, could-have-been kdrama pairings?
Thanks to shl for the fantastic suggestion! And, as always, I’m contactable by email and on twitter. 🙂
