SORRY! Had some computer difficulties for the last 48 hours, hence the lack of daily posts. Thanks for sticking with us and we will continue where we left off on Day 24. Let’s chat toxic relationships!
DAY 24: The unhealthiest drama OTP (one true pairing) that were better off not being together at all.
CLKYTTA: Yong Pal had the most toxic couple ever. Spoilers ahead. I was honestly wishing that they were going to kill off Han Yeo Jin and pair up Kim Tae Hyun with Cynthia. I loved Cynthia! I never bought into the story that Yong Pal would love the gangster princess. She stood for everything he was against and she was holding him back. The writers had a lot of potential there and they totally screwed it up by turning her character into a vengeful one. I had no sympathy for her and Yong Pal was one of those dramas that I felt wasted my time.
Drama Geek: I’ll argue with CLKYTTA on this one. Secret Love had the most toxic couple ever. SOOO many of their interactions bordered on domestic violence. And the WORST kiss in all kdramaland. I have to admit that I barely finished the drama after the car kiss and will forever remember these two people as Oh Ri Jin and the many personalities of Do Hyun. I just don’t want to think of them as their other personas.
Kdrama Jen: Sorry. I have been MIA, so I missed the last few posts. I have a great excuse, though… I was in Korea! So, let me chime in here. I think the OTP from Valid Love was not a good pairing. The whole teacher/student thing bothered me from the beginning, and I was secretly cheering for her to end up with the carpenter hottie, but I can’t figure out if that is because I liked the character or if I have bit of a Lee Soo Hyuk bias. Either way, I just thought the main couple was not meant to be.
KMUSE: My fellow bloggers stole the words straight from my mouth. All three of those are horribly toxic relationships. As for me, I am going to add the OTP from Jekyll, Hyde, and I. It is never a good thing when the leading man ends up coming in second to his alternate personality. I still am pissed that the relationship was written so poorly. What were they thinking? The end ship should never be the rebound ….. or involve the wife of one’s alternate personality. It was messed up.
Which OTP ship do you think should have never sailed? Let us know in the comments and be sure to check back tomorrow for more challenge posts and recaps.
See you tomorrow,
