Secret Garden drama review(Little Spoilage)

Hola yall(=

Thanksgiving Break means...another drama has been watched!! hahaha If I watched dramas during school, I'd get kicked out of any teams and fail all of my classes because they're too addicting T-T
(Spoilers are in white - highlight whole page if you want to see everything please!!^^)
Either way! Secret Garden turned out to be a very sweet, funny, sad, comedic, romantic, super sad and a happy ending!! I watched it just knowing it was really big about a year ago, and I now know why.

Genre:Romance w/ action,comedic relief

Firstly, let's introduce the 2 main characters: Ha Ji Won plays Gil Ra Im, a poor orphaned(at age 17) stuntwoman, and Hyun Bin plays Kim Joo Won,a rich president of one of the biggest department stores in Korea.
KJW has a hallyu-wave-star cousin Oska(playaa), a mom similar to BOF/HYD mom in the sense that she trys to rip the 2 lovebirds apart and disowns him,Yoon Seul(a director/Oska's ex that eventually they end up marrying<3 that has had arranged marriage meeting with KJW),Ji Hyun(his personal doctor and an ex) and Secretary Kim (he and Ah Young is sooooo cute!!).
Gil Ra Im has her action school crew(including Director Im the guy who gets left out in that love triangle - he gets together with KJW sister though so it all works out ;D), and Ah Young (her roomate and close friend).

After an accidental meeting and KJW realizing he's starting to fall for her(major stalking went on), they end up switching souls((whenever it rains before GRI Dad puts them back to normal))after drinking some homemade wine and experience each others life(honestly, while this was mostly hilarious,they did share some good moments and bad moments while switched, like in Ep. 18 T-T) and go through the hardships of fighting against KJW's mother, who has quite a bit of power. One gets deathly hurt,one is willing to die for the other, one has a tramatic incident years ago that ended up involving the other,and amnesia, - you should watch to see it all!

Overall, 9.5/10!
(It drags a little in the middle)

And the Special goes over the top 10 moments, superlatives, and many NG's along with some backstage interviewing. Really nice ^^

**Omo, Big Bang's parody is really funny!
**Plus, if you watch it with Viki, the comments are hilarious and let you know you're not the only one sitting on the computer all day laughing/crying/sitting to yourself haha

Side note: Hyun Bin is an AMAZING actor. I hope he's doing well in the military!! I'm now a fan of him haha, but seriously! When he and Ra Im were switched, it was almost like a light switch turned on and off in his head. His eyes looked different, and he really acted the part! Same with Ha Ji Won - kudos girl!! She's an amazing actress, the two of them together were able to successfully mimic each other and have great, believable on-screen chemistry.

So, hope everyone had a great Turkey day!! If you missed Black Friday, don't miss Cyber Monday!! Many online stores have discounts  right now still.
With that...I should go do my Spanish project, Japanese homework, and practice my Clarinet. Things I've been putting off (along with sleep) to watch SG =P
