133. Couple or Trouble 환상의 커플 (2006) Korean

Han Ye Seul, Oh Ji Ho, Kim Sung Min, Park Han Byul

Drama Rating: 6/10     Neck Score: B

Not the Hong Sisters' best drama, but a million times better than the movie it was based on (Overboard, 1987, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell).  But can I just say Oh Ji Ho's arms.  Mmmmm!  He spent half the show in sleeveless shirts and it was wonderful.  So it's a jerk rich girl falling overboard and getting amnesia, and this poor handyman dude deciding to get revenge on her by saying they were dating and making her do housework at his place until he gets his money's worth.  The best part about it was all the side characters.  The three nephews were adorable, especially the youngest one.  Kang Ja was amazing, I love love loved her.  The Ahjumma/Ahjussi romance was amazing (Bbangoo!) and I (not so) secretly loved Billy (the second male lead) until he became a butt at the end.  He was just so funny!  His nightmares were seriously the best part of the show.  It was definitely good, but still definitely an early work by the Hong Sisters.  At least it didn't have a year gap like we were so worried about.  I hate them year gaps.
