Nemu blog Fanda dan gue suka banget sama meme yang ini.
Nggak harus diambil dari bacaan klasik.
Saat ini gue masih menyelesaikan buku So I Married The Anti-fan by Kim Eun Jeong terbitan Penerbit Haru.
Buku ini ringan, lucu, walau mudah ketebak tapi cukup menghibur gue yang suka juga nonton K-Drama.
Pemisenya kaya gini: Hallyu star yang kena musibah dan terpaksa harus tinggal bareng anti-fannya.
Kabarnya, novel ini akan diangkat jadi serial.
Saat gue baca buku ini, yang kebayang di kepala adalah:
Yoochun sebagai Hu Joon, artis Hallyu yang masa lalunya sulit. Ia harus menukar ibunya demi ketenaran. Kisah cinta pertamanya berakhir tragis, tapi akhirnya Geun Yeong yang mengisi hari-harinya. Cool dan tenang di luar, tetapi Hu Joon sangat sensitif dan rapuh di dalam. Ia juga suka menjahili Geun Yeong, karena diam-diam ia suka pada Geun Yeong. I can say he’s a typical K-drama hero.
Park Min-yeong as Geun Yeong. It sounds Sungkyunkwan all over again. Tapi nggak ada lagi yang lebih pantes untuk memerankan Geun Yeong, menurut gue ya.
Geun Yeong ceroboh, impulsif, blak-blakan dan tomboy. Ia terpaksa dipecat jadi wartawan karena Hu Joon, atau begitulah menurut pikiran Geun Yeong. Sampai ia akhirnya dengan terpaksa menerima tawaran untuk menjadi bintang reality show dengan Hu Joon karena sudah nggak punya uang. Then hate turns into love.
Alex as Ji Hyang. Manager yang cool, tenang, dan berkarisma, juga loyal terhadap Hu Joon dan melindungi Geun Yeong. Setiap kali Hu Joon dan Geun Yeong mengalami kesusahan, Ji Hyang selalu bisa diandalkan.
MC Mong sebagai JJ. Pantes banget dari ujung rambut sampe kaki. JJ adalah senior Hu Joon di dunia hiburan, dan dia adalah antagonis dari cerita ini. Merebut kekasih Hu Joon, sengaja melakukan hal licik dan yang paling menyebalkan, ia menginginkan apa saja yang dimiliki oleh Hu Joon. Ia juga suka melakukan domestic violence terhadap In Hyong, mantan kekasih Hu Joon.
Tia Hwang from Chocolat as In Hyong, cinta pertama Hu Joon, mantan anggota girlband yang kurang sukses di dunia entertainment. Karena bujuk rayu JJ, ia meninggalkan management-nya untuk pindah bersama JJ, dan ternyata ia disia-siakan.
Ahn Gyoo-ryeon sebagai Mi Jung, sahabat Geun Yong yang mengusir Geun Yong dari apartemennya. Karakter Mi Jung flat karena muncul sedikit di novel ini.
Dan yang cocok untuk memerankan orang tua Geun Yeong:
Lee Moon-sik dan Park Hye-sook.
Moon-sik cocok banget jadi bapak tani yang tinggal di kampung (mengingatkan gue akan perannya di serial Iljimae), sedangkan Hye-sook jutek dan suka gebukin Geun Yeong pake sapu, sama waktu ia gebukin Eric di serial Super Rookie.

Excerpt from the book
As our lips met, the search for our security began. Neither of us wanted to believe that we could lose this. Running my fingers through his hair, I gripped his neck with my other hand. I didn’t want this closeness to end. The firmness of his body stretched along mine as he lifted me into his arms. I wrapped my legs around his waist, not wanting to detach from his kisses as they led away from my mouth down my neck. Feeling his breath dance across my skin as he kissed my collarbone brought a shivery delight to my senses. The softness of his lips was such a contrast to the firmness of his grasp as he guided his hands down my back.
He spun around, pinning me up against the tree with his weight, as I let my mind wander to what might be waiting for me next. My breathing got faster with each second of anticipation. He slowly brought my chin up and his lips began exploring mine once more. With every kiss, his mouth pressed harder along mine, and my heart exploded with curiosity. I let my hands find their way back to his neck up to his hair, twisting and pulling him closer to me with all of my strength.
He pulled away slightly, and I opened my eyes to see him searching my expression for something. For what, I wasn’t sure.
“I don’t ever want to lose you, Triss.” Logan shook his head. “I couldn’t—”
“Shh.” I placed my index finger to his lips. “You won’t.”
My hand trailed down his chest to the first button that I attempted to unfasten.
