This week I ponder “Would I Date Him?” for the series Come Back Mister
Our candidate: Young Soo portrayed by Rain from the series Come Back Mister. Full disclosure, I am a Rain fan. I watch his dramas. I enjoy his dramas. I enjoyed Rain in this drama. But we are here to examine the character Young Soo, not Rain.
His Background: Young is a soul on a 2 month sojourn from heaven to resolve issues his unexpected death caused his family. The wrinkle is that he’s in a new body and no one can find out he’s inhabiting the body.
Pluses: New hot body, fun loving, cares deeply for his family, loyal friend. He gave his support and protection to the other soul on sojourn, Gi Tak.
Minuses: Single minded goal to clear his name even if his wife was hurt in the process. Romanced his wife, a new widow, to determine if she ever loved her husband. This demonstrated a lack of trust and faith in his wife.
Would I date him? Yes – but it would be a brief relationship as he only has 2 months on earth. I thought I’d say no based on his initial single mindedness and lack of trust, but in the second half of the series, Young Soo blossomed into a character that put other’s needs first. That turned the tide.
