Based on the popular webtoon, “Noona Fan Dot Com” by Kim Seng Yeon, this is the romantic story of a woman who dedicates her entire life to a celebrity only to be blindsided by her overbearing, handsome new boss who finds out about her fangirling of a younger pretty boy of the famous boy group called White Ocean. Seong Deok Mi is an art curator for a prestigious art museum during the day and the loyal manager of the pop idol Cha Si An’s fansite at night. She uses her business trips as excuses to catch glimpses of her Cha Si An, treasures her high-powered camera to capture the clearest picture of her prince charming only to photoshop his photos before publication, and goes on the fangirl version of a pilgrimage to holy places Cha Si An’s feet have walked upon. Her new boss, Ryan Gold, a genius artist from America who discontinued painting for mysterious reasons, clashes with Seong Deok Mi the first few times they interact, revealing the sexual tension behind all that “interacting.” Through Cha Si An and a coveted painting by an unknown painter, Ryan Gold and Seong Deok Mi become more connected outside of their professional lives.
Braveness of the Ming is the drama adaptation of the novel Silk Night written by Yue Guan. With the time-traveling element removed thanks to you-know-who, the story now follows Xia Xun (Zhang Han), a regular citizen as he transforms from a fish monger to a royal guard and assists Zhu Di in ascending the throne and becoming the third Emperor of the Ming Dynasty.
In the end, the time-travel aspect of the novel isn’t a problem because he time-travels to the past and stays there. The drama adaptation, Braveness of the Ming, featuring Zhang Han and Park Min Young, easily took that modern part out. So no more time-traveling hijinks (not like we need to see them unfold for the Nth time) and now everyone is happy…including SARFT because Miss B needs to be kept happy at all times for the world of Cdramas to function. =P The first character stills are pleasing to the eyes. I think everyone looks great!
Being away for 7 days, I guess it is only appropriate to do another batch of entertainment news to catch up with the never-ending showbiz kazooka. As always, you can click on the tag of the drama/actor at the end of the post to see more written related posts of the subject.
