Dramaland: The Battle in May

  In January, the addictive Dream High ended….In March’s batch of dramas, Royal Family and 49 Days are stealing hearts left to right, leaving Midas behind venting incoherent business codes.
What the heck, let’s take a brief look at the dramas, waiting to be aired in sun-shining month of May.
The drama is listed in the order of my interest. Yes. Everything is about me here. =P

What’s this? Sexy Poster!

#1— > With the famous Hong Sisters as its writers, MBC’s “The Greatest Love” aka Best Love, is basking in the lime light. The other compelling factors? The drama is led by A-listers Gong Hyo Jin and Cha Seung Won, with a round of cheerful cast mates – Yoon Kye Sang, Lee Jin, and Yoo In Na. Another must-see factor for me? Bae Seul Gi’s addition as the fourth, and (hopefully) maknae of the drama’s idol group called the “Treasure Girls”.

The Plot: Ae Jung (Gong Hyo Jin) is a female band member who is already over the hill. When she enters a variety show to pretend marriage with the top star Jin, she gets entangled in a love triangle along with her ex-bandmate (Yoo In Na). Yoon Pil Joo (Yoon Kye Sang) is a doctor of oriental medicine who has no interest in the entertainment industry but meets Ae Jung by chance and falls for her. (Credit: Wiki)

Miss you Warrior GIRL!!

#2 — > The next promising drama is SBS’s “Lie to Me“, headlining by Yoon Eun Hye (YAY!) and Kang Ji Hwan (Ack!!) This is really what you call…double the hotness! CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!

The Plot: Gong Ah Jung (Yoon Eun Hye) gets entangled in a web of lies when she mistakenly lies that she’s married to Hyun Ki Joon (Kang Ji Hwan), an elite CEO from an affluent family. Their relationship is further complicated when Ki Joon’s ex-fiancée and a close friend of his brother’s, Oh Yoon Joo (Jo Yoon Hee), reappears in his life. (Credit: Wiki)

#3 — > The second SBS drama is “City Hunter” with a youthful cast of Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young as the main leads. The story is based on a manga but from what I heard, the plot is no longer true to the original, causing many waving fists. Well, that’s not my greatest concern since the manga world is one I don’t lay my hands on. Wait for me, Minho!

The Plot: Lee Yoon-Sung (Lee Min-Ho) works at the Blue House’s National Communication Network Team and received his Ph.D at M.I.T. Kim Na-Na (Park Min-Young) is a bodyguard at the South Korean president’s residence, the Blue House . Na-Na lost her parents by car accident since than she made a living by doing part time jobs. She became a bodyguard at the Blue House and she falls in love with Lee Yoon-Sung. (Credit: Wiki)

#4 —> Then there’s another KBS drama, “Baby-Faced Beauty“, starring Korea’s ageless actress Jang Na Ra, and cutie-pie Choi Daniel, along with Ryu Jin and Kim Min Seo. This will definitely be a fun ride of adorableness. Jang Na Ra just doesn’t age…she looks like a high-schooler.

The Plot: “Baby-faced Beauty” is a romantic-comedy centered around a 32-year-old woman with a babyface as she works to become a fashion designer and overcomes obstacles like having only having a high school diploma and a bad credit history. Choi Jin-Wook (Daniel Choi) is the heir of the famous Jokbal restaurant with millions of dollars in annual revenue. But, Choi Jin-Wook goes against his father and leaves his parents’ house. Choi Jin-Wook starts to work at another company to accomplish his dream. Against his will, Choi Jin-Wook starts work in the fashion department. With his sweet character he survives there and meets Lee So-Young Lee So-Young (Jang Na-Ra) … (Credit: Wiki)

#5 — > The third KBS drama is “Romance Town“. The leads are Sung Yu Ri and Jung Gyu Woon, with cast mates Kim Min Joon and Min Hyo Rin. I’m not very sure about this drama…Originally, I was excited with the possibility of Park Shi Hoo.Yuri isn’t an outstanding actress but I like charming screen presence.

The Plot: No Soon-Geum (Sung Yu Ri), whose mother works as a housekeeper, believes she was born to become a housekeeper. While she works as a housekeeper for a rich family, she wins the lottery. The young woman now faces a turning point in her life … (Credit: DramaStyle)

#6 — > The last one on my list… (Sorry Cassie) is MBC’s “Ripley“, starring DBSK’s Micky Yoochun and Lee Da Hae. The other characters include Kang Hye Jung and Kim Seung Woo. Again, I have nothing against Lee Da Hae. She’s just…not on my radar when it comes to acting.

The Plot: Based on the true story of Shin Jeong-Ah who once worked as a professor of art at Dongguk University and chief curator at Sungkok Art Museum. She was then elected as artistic co-director for the 2008 Gwangju Biennale (one of Korea’s biggest art events). It was then revealed that Shin Jeong-Ah forged her college credentials (a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas and a Ph.D. from Yale University) and was fired from her positions. Shin Jeong-Ah served 18 months in prison. She was also romantically linked to former presidential aide Byeon Yang-Kyoon, who helped Shin Jeong-Ah gain employment at Dongguk University.

    Maybe it's just me, did anyone take a second look at Yoon Kye Sang in the Best Love's poster? I thought he was Yoo Ah In at first glance. Maybe it's my inner fangirl talking. ha!
