Kdrama - My Girl (2005)



Synopsis - Drama
WikiPhotos - Hancinema

When Gong-chan (Lee Dong Wook) meets the lively and beautiful Yu-rin (Lee Da Hae), he finds out that she has connections to his missing cousin, who his grandfather has been searching for a long time. He asks Yu-rin to lie about being his long missing cousin until he can find his real cousin. She says yes, but soon their feelings for each other get in the way of their plans. Gong-chan's friend Jung-woo (Lee Jun Ki) falls for Yu-rin while Gong-chan's ex girlfriend, Seo-hyun (Park Si Yeon), a pro tennis player, tries to win him back. Will the two ever tell each other how they feel? Will Gong-chan ever find his real cousin?



My Girl is another Kdrama that I absolutely adore! My Girl has been getting rave reviews in Korea. First of all, it has my hottie Lee Dong Wook. Yah! I get to see him again. I love him even more because of his character Gong Chan. What I love about Wookie is seeing him from Arang to My Girl was a total transformation in his characters. He can act! Plus he looks good with or with out stubs, long or short hair. I find him sexier with rugged with stubs. Gong Chan was a bit metro sexual but overall, I love how sweet, humble, and kind he was. Love how he took care of Yu Rin.

Lee Da Hae is cute. However, I hated her tacky clothes in the movie. She's a very skinny girl and wearing tight pants/jeans didn't do justice to her. Plus the two ponytails made her character more silly. Yu Rin was annoying at first but started to become likeable. For example, in the beginning because what motivated her was money. She was doing stupid stuff like staying in the guest house and picking up the fruits to sell them as her own.


When I first saw Lee Jun Ki on screen, I was like "Oh my goodness, he looks like a girl!" I love his martial arts move which impress me. The long hair still got to go!! Thank goodness I saw him in A Time With Dog and Wolf later. Whew! Despite his girlish look, I still found Jung Woo so adorable. I love how he cared for Yu Rin so much that he was willing to let her go to Gon Chan because he knew they both loved each other inside.


Park Si Yeon was a bit annoying in the movie but I can see why. She wanted her man back! Her fault for choosing the love of tennis over the fine Gong Chan! For some reason, she has a bitchy look to her. Hate her smile.



The storyline was not the best but I love the flow of the movie. Ending could've been better but overall, a must watch. If anything watch it for Lee Dong Wook. Hottie!!! Definitely worth your time.
