About a month ago, I gave my reaction to the first two episodes, I thought it was going to be awesome, and ten episodes in, it is still freaking awesome. The romantic relationship between the leads (1) does not involve fat shaming and (2) deviates from the majority of kdrama I've seen by being more grown up. The female lead is scripted to be 32, the male lead is . . . older but I couldn't say by how much. They don't do that awkward love/hate thing, or the oh-so-sweet-no-hand-holding-because-that's-skinship thing.
Love it so much!!! The first two episodes aired this week and I found myself immediately rewatching them. Oh My Venus (also titled Beautiful Lady) strikes exactly the right note.
Premise from DramaFever:
In an effort to support her family, Kang Joo Eun (Shin Min Ah in her first drama since Arrang and the Magistrate) has become a workaholic lawyer without any regard for her personal well being. Overweight, unattractive and depressed at the prime of her life, Joo Eun comes across Kim Young Ho (So Ji Sub in his first drama since The Master's Sun), a renowned personal trainer who considers health a deeply personal calling. Can Young Ho and his stubborn perfectionism whip Joo Eun’s body—and heart—back into shape?Want to know more about my assessment of the show? The heroine with a backbone, the mystery of the hero, the gorgeous tub time? Read on here. All my hopes and fears are coming and not coming to be in a way that's making me very happy. Let's hope it holds until the show's final episode!
