by Dramabeans:It’s a grand entrance for a gorgeous woman, whom we’ll come to know as SA-RA (Han Ye-seul), who walks down a street and turns heads left and right with her stunning appearance. Everywhere she goes she attracts admiring glances and drops jaws; she explains that she’s an actress who’s just come back to Korea after working in the U.S. This makes sense to everyone who sees her, and she gets the royal treatment.She gets her fortune told by a face reader, who is awed by the interesting combination of fates she holds in her hands (er, face): Not only is she an uncommon beauty, she also has the fortune of a military general and might even save the nation. That is, if she steers clear of her two pitfalls: the need to get involved in matters, and bad guys.Sa-ra starts to clue into the uneasy feeling that she’s being followed, and this is how we get our introduction to HAN TAE-HEE (Joo Sang-wook, whose combination of dorky and heo-dang antics I have really missed, and love to see back in action here)

After months of hiatus, the Soompi “We Got Married“ recaps are back with a look at the current husbands of the show: Song Jae Rim, Hong Jong Hyun, and Namgoong Min. Now let’s take a look at the lovely ladies, Girls’ Day‘s Yura, Kim So Eun, and Hong Jin Young, who have the – honor? Pleasure? Burden? – of being their virtual wives.

Yura – The Bubbly Idol

Poor Yura, she is trying so hard. We already covered that her husband needs to work on his affection and expressions, and he has improved a lot, but Yura is trying so hard to take the relationship to the next level. I’m not sure what the next level looks like, but I think it would be something that is a little more comfortable with a little more skinship
