Just when the latest crop of daily dramas have me kicking and screaming in dismay and anger; just when I said enough is enough; what happens is I find out about this latest drama that will be replacing the disaster called “Love & Secret” (what Love? what Secret?).
So what exactly has got me excited about this little drama? What else but the glimpse of Park Jin Woo as the lead. YES!! After just recently completing the drama, Bicheonmu, I’ve been on a search and “must see” dramas of Jin Woo’s and so far I have been totally unsuccessful in finding any. Some of you might also remember him from “Glass Mask”. Okay, I will continue to go on the record saying that I really did like that drama overall; just not the last 15 or so episodes. But then how often do we get to watch a perfect daily drama!? Yes, they are rare and us daily drama watchers relish in those that have the perfect ending and admittedly, that list is short!
In addition, Jin Woo’s leading lady will be none other than Im Se Mi who just completed the disaster that we (we, being me and Nelly) got a real kick out of watching, Only Love! Again, I still have found memories of her in King’s Daughter, so maybe this writer, Choi Min Kin who wrote Heaven’s Order (which I liked) and The Birth of the Rich (which was just meh), we might have a 50/50 chance of having a decent drama! But the director, Choi Ji Young, has a brilliant resume when it comes to producing (Inspiring Generations, Chuno, Iris, Hong Gil Dong and Insoo is Pretty) so we might have even more hope of a decent drama!
A drama about a woman who finally becomes a part of a family after re-adoption and man who chooses love over family.
The Yoon family has 250 years of history behind them and the family lives in the spacial Bukchon Hanok family home. The drama is supposed to dove into the meaning of ‘family’ evolving solitaire home, adoptive families, remarried families, living at home, as well as multicultural families.
