Beauty & The Beast

Yoo Ha Joon. The 'beastly' step-brother in One Fine Day who became Sung's real-life prince.

I nearly fell off my chair when I read in Popseoul that Sung Yu Ri's boyfriend is none other than Yoo Ha Joon who co-starred as her obsessive and somewhat perverted step-brother in the K-drama One Fine Day. I am kind of disappointed that it's not Gong Yoo since he starred in the drama too.

I believe only hardcore Sung Yu Ri and Gong Yoo fans would have seen the drama since One Fine Day is a rather disappointing attempt at rehashing the brother/sisterly love story first seen in Autumn in My Heart.

I am not trying to be disrespectful to Sung's boyfriend since I am a fan of hers. But putting them side by side really reminds me of the classic term"Beauty and the Beast". Guess I need not spell out who's the beauty and who's the beast. Then again, I am sure there are fans out there who would gladly challenge my definition.

While it is hard to exorcise the not-so-nice images of Yoo's character in One Fine Day, I am still happy for Sung Yu Ri to have found her love.
