On the January 25 episode of KBS’s Wednesday-Thursday popular drama series Wild Romance, SNSD’s Jessica made a first but impressive appearance as Kang Jong Hee, the ex-girlfriend of the lead character Park Mu Yeol, played by Lee Dong Wook, drawing the focus of the largest attention from viewers.
In previous episodes of the series, the storyline has been flowing mainly around the gradual change of the relationship between Mu Yeol and his anti-fan and bodyguard Eun Jae, played by Lee Shi Young, and the lurking threat of Park Mu Yeol’s stalker.
Viewers are growing more and more interested in the expected love affair between Mu Yeol, who takes risk to take back the necklace offered by his ex-girlfriend, and his anti-fan turned bodyguard Eun Jae, who grows to conceive more love for him over time. That’s why the sudden appearance of his ex-girlfriend, played by Jessica, heightened the tension of the romantic story.
Thanks to Jessica’s appearance, the soundtrack of Wild Romance vaulted to higher ranks on music-download online sites.
Viewers left a variety of responses: “Finally she appeared. I’ve long waited to see her appearing in the series. I cannot wait to watch the next episode.” “Her brief appearance is not enough to valuate anything. That’s why I’m fixing my eyes on TV for the next episode to be aired.”
