Oh My Venus Episode 1 [Review]
Oh My Venus gonna be a second trend after ‘She was Pretty, with the weight loss challenge romantic comedy produced by KBS. Truly, there is a promising start with the first episode on ‘Oh My Venus’, regarding to 8.2% rating. May be , it is because the huge lured attraction of supper start ‘ So Ji Sub (1) and Shin Min Ah (2).
Undoubtedly, the majority of audiences are hurry for the Shin Min Ah and So Ji Sub match up. And just to see these two together, whether bickering or crackling with chemistry, I’m pretty sure I’d accept even the flimsiest plot, doing the bare minimum as romance-delivery device. If we’re lucky, we’ll get something better than that—I’m hoping for it, but not sure yet—but for now, I’m content with just having them together on my screen, hinting at the flirtation to come.

Then the bus pulls up to the next stop, and all the boys go wild in anticipation as that very girl steps onto the bus.

Even in the following screen, when she find out 3 boys, smoking nearly school gate, her action is really unnatural. Love story between Kang Joo Eun and Im Woo Shik ( Jung Kyeo Woon ) is running too fast and strained.

He watches a fight with one friend, JANG JOON-SUNG (Sung Hoon), while a third friend, KIM JI-WOONG (Henry), cooks for them—er, struggles to cook.
It’s Ji-woong who reads about the scandal, and how Anna Sue has neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, which fans the gossip flames further.

Mid-flight, an announcement comes on requesting the help of any doctor onboard with an emergency patient. Suddenly Young-ho gets up and flashes his EMT badge, ready to take charge of the situation. Ha, are you kidding me? Is he a secret chaebol and a doctor, and also maybe a diplomat?
The patient is Joo-eun, who has collapsed in the aisle, moaning in pain and clutching her stomach. Young-ho assesses the situation and decides she needs to be moved, and with some difficulty transfers her into the first class cabin and prepares the emergency kit. He unbuttons her blouse and cuts through her support garment, then begins treating her with an IV and massaging her cold limbs.
She snaps that she’ll refrain from suing him since she’s sooooo grateful, and says she’d love to repay the favor if only she could do it without having to see his face again. She buries her face under her blanket to make the point.
But her words give Young-ho a bright idea, and he tells her there is one way she can repay the favor…
Oh My Venus episode 1
In Seoul, a stern-faced man, attended by a couple men in sharp suits, reports to a chairman that “he” ought to be on this flight. Ha, Young-ho is totally a chaebol, isn’t he? In the background, Young-ho’s two buddies slip by while the team of corporate minions looks around for him, though he’s nowhere in sight.
That’s because Young-ho’s riding in an ambulance alongside Joo-eun, using her as his escape route. She mutters to herself, “I should have opened that plane door and escaped earlier.”

Young-ho meets up with his buddies outside, who drop off his car, and is about to leave when he sees Joo-eun running outside into the rain. He drives on, passing her as she tries to hail a cab unsucessfully… but can’t quite shake the feeling. He pulls over and tells her to get in, which she does with great reluctance, eyeing him suspiciously.
As he drives, she sighs, “I’d thought that a few nights ago was the worst day of my life, but I was wrong. It’s today.” He advises her to return to the hospital later because she was very cold, and drops her off at her place. She thanks him for his help, saying it’ll be the last they see of each other, and runs into the rain toward the building.

And then she stops in her tracks to see Woo-shik embracing a woman, smiling happily. Numbly, she turns around and walks the other way, pausing in front of a storefront, thinking, “I was Kang Joo-eun, who could do anything she set out to do.”

And then, an ominous figure appears behind her, wearing a mask and dark clothes. He follows her down the street, calling out to her, and Joo-eun hurries away in fear. He persists, and when an arm grabs her, she cowers and begs, “Please save me!”
It’s Young-ho’s sardonic voice that cuts in, however: “You ask me to save you every time you see me.” She looks up at him in astonishment as he crouches with her, holding an umbrella over her head, adding, “And you’re not even going to be grateful about it.”
COMMENTS:
Honestly, it make me quite confused about the episode content, I don’t really understand why Joo Eun flight to American suddenly , and why Young Ho teat her so specially, it just goes so forced.
However, because this is the first one, I believe that the detail is more clear in following episodes, I still have high expectation for this drama because of my 2 famous idol Shin Min Ah and So Ji Sub
