The staff members and cast members looked very friendly to each other as they had worked together in the middle of severe cold. Lee Si Young who was hiding her red face as if she were crying drew attention. In particular, the members of the fan club for the drama belonging to DC Inside, who had brought snacks and gifts for the cast members on the last filming, also brought a double layer cake on which the faces of the cast members were engraved to express their unchanged love towards “Wild Romance.” Lee Si Young and Im Joo Eun took a photo while holding their script and the gifts that were presented by the fan club members with beautiful smiles on their faces for their fans.

In addition, the staff members and the cast members began the party by cutting the double layer cake together. The producer Hwang Eui Kyung CP presented the awards to the cast members, which created an enthusiastic atmosphere. All the staff and cast members watched the last episode together and they began to applaud when the ending credits of the drama appeared on the screen. They celebrated completing their own drama together.

Jessica’s Wild Romance…is Not So Wild

Jessica has appeared on a few television shows, mainly playing herself in various cameos. In 2008, she appeared in Unstoppable Marriage, a daily sitcom that starred fellow SNSD group members Sooyoung and Yuri. She later made an appearance on Taehee, Hye Kyo, Jihyun with GG sister Sunny. The same year she landed the lead role of Elle Woods in the South Korean musical theatre adaptation of Legally Blonde, which lasted for over a year. But her role as Kang Jeong-hee in Wild Romance would be her first significant role in a television drama. The drama stars Lee Dong-wook (as Park Mu-yeol) and Lee Si-young (as Yoo Eun-jae) as the dumb baseball player and even dumber bodyguard. While the two actors play the one true pairing, Jessica takes the role of the obligatory ex-girlfriend who, after eight years abroad and a bout with schizophrenia, has come back into the picture hoping to regain the affections of her first love. The character, although sweet, straightforward, and fragile, also shows traits of selfishness and entitlement. The role would be an opportunity for Jessica to shine and show off the acting chops that she’d acquired on the stage.

But Jessica’s acting was limited to safe, bland facial expressions, over excessively cute manners of speaking, and a weak onscreen presence. Her acting, which would have been great for a music video, did not translate well into the K-dramaverse. Although she made an effort, she was not able to relay the emotions that the scenes called for.  However, I do want to give credit where its due: she was not entirely terrible. In fact, how I feel about Jessica’s performance can be summed up by an exchange between Yoo Eun-jae and her friend Dong-ha about Kang Jeong-hee (Jessica’s character) in episode 13:

Yoo Eun Jae: I’m talking about Kang Jeong-hee. Sometimes I really can’t stand her. But then suddenly, she will become very lovely.

On the February 23 episode, Park Mu-yeol (Lee Dong-wook) and Yoon Eun-jae (Lee Si-young) becomes a true couple against all odds. They first met as enemies when Eun-jae was forced to work as a bodyguard for Mu-yeol, a star baseball player, although she was his detractor. When Eun-jae fell for him, Mu-yeol’s first love, Kang Jong-hee (Jessica), to Eun-jae’s disappointment, returned some years after she left him. And a stalker of Mu-yeol harassed women around Mu-yeol.

But it turns out that the stalker is Mu-yeol’s housemaid, and she is arrested. Jong-hee leaves him again after learning that what Mu-yeol has cherished is not her but the memory that they had together.

Mu-yeol then confesses to Eun-jae, who is afraid of taking their relationship to the next level, that he is sorry to Jong-hee but the person he loves is her and kisses her.

The housemaid also keeps Seo Yun-yi (Hong Jong-hyun), Mu-yeol’s detractor, to her room after making him unconscious with a drug when he becomes suspicious of her and mockingly accuses her, saying, “Are you saying that you’ve stalked him [Mu-yeol] out of love, not out of resentment or for money?” And she says that she has come to realize thanks to Mu-yeol how sweet it feels to have somebody who needs her, adding, “Why, is this not love? I don’t care if people say I’m crazy or disgusting. But no one can say this is not love.”

But her true identity is disclosed by Kim Dong-ah (Lim Eun-joo), who becomes suspicious of her when she has pretended to know nothing about the incident where she rescued Dong-ah from Yun-yi’s attack.
