WHAT’S NEW PUSSYCAT?
Kim Soo Jin (Song Ji Hyo) is a movie producer assigned to adapt a famous webtoon titled, ‘Meet My Girlfriends,’ into a movie. Turns out that the writer of that webtoon is someone she was once close to. Bang Myung Soo (Byun Yo Han) created his webtoon to talk about the different relationships he’s had through the years, characterizing his ex-girlfriends as a cat, lioness and a fox.
It’s kind of funny how timely things can be. I commented on a fellow blogger’s post recently about the entertainment value of relationship variety shows. Most specifically We Got Married, since that’s the only one I’m watching right now and I’ve mentioned some things I’ve missed about Season 1.
It’s not that I don’t find the show entertaining anymore. I just feel a sense of whiplash at how quickly we go through the couples. The reality of it is if you count the number of episodes we spend on the couples, nothing really has changed since the beginning. What sets this show apart from the others ones is that they’re supposed to represent a fake marriage and the problem is that I just feel like we don’t get to see them do all the things that a married couples do. Rather than just go on dates.
Looks like the variety gods have been listening somewhat so I’ll just get into a mini overview of this week’s episode because a lot happens.
