Although there have been many other reviews on Secret Garden, I thought, “What the hell, why not jump into the mix?” I say it’s a good way to start off 2011 with one riveting drama that was so bloody addicting and enchanting that all semblance of a social life (without the daily essentials and necessities of life) went down the tubes for those 10 weeks…
As most of our readers know, I have been
sort of very much MIA for quite some time. After much thought, researching for some good ol’ gossip (which I am happy to say I have not been quite so delusional on)- an affirmation that my gossip 6th sense is still intact, searching for endless hours for spoilers, and finally meeting some great friends and reuniting with some of the old timers on SG’s thread- I think I can finally add this drama to my All Time Favorite Dramas List. Also, this drama gave me hope and a reminder (more like a swift kick to the shins) to work towards pursuing our other goal (Bluesy knows this all too well and we really should get crackin’….).
First things first, I am so bloody overdue for posting and after bouts of illness/ crazy work traveling, deadlines, more piles of work, and yada yada yada) a huge round of applause (and gratitude) to our guest blogger, Joonni for writing the review because I don’t think I could have done it without being a blabbering incoherent mess. One because she brought up some very interesting ways to look at the drama from a different perspective, two because she wrote it so eloquently well, and three- despite some of my disagreements with her thoughts she never failed to bring a fresh interpretation to scenes and analyses. And if you could do all three, I am utterly sold!
So everyone, let us give a warm (huge bear-hug) welcome to Joonni ( who I would hope will write many more for us?!??!) ! – Bella
