Well, the summer is officially over! Social media is filled with stories of kids going back to school and Korean universities across the peninsula start next week. September is almost here and so it’s my favorite time again – the time to tell you guys about some great new dramas coming out!
The funniest part of making this video actually came shortly after the video itself was finished and the editing process started. I realized that I forgot to talk about not one, but two dramas! Two! So while I want to talk about all the fantabulous dramas that are coming out that I already talked about in the video, I’m going to tell you instead about the two dramas I didn’t know about.
The first one I discovered that I had overlooked is called “The Spring Day of My Life”. It stars Sooyoung of Girls Generation (her last drama was Cyrano Dating Agency) as a woman who had to have a heart transplant who meets the husband who’s heart she received played by Kam Woo Sung. Frankly, I don’t know him much as an actor since he hasn’t done anything since 2011, but I have seen him in clips from The King and the Clown. Anyways he plays a man who’s wife passed away leaving behind himself and their two kids. If there’s a strong indication that this drama is going to be great it’s that a. Kam Woo Sung is coming back after 3 years, b. it’s a melodrama and c. it’s following Fated to Love You! Here’s hoping it’s great!
The second drama that I totally missed is “Greatest Marriage”. This one stars Park Si Yeon of Innocent Man as a female news anchor who voluntarily chooses to become a single mother. Bae Soo Bin plays her news desk partner. You may recognize him from such dramas as Secret Love, Dong Yi and Shining Inheritance. The other guy who’s in the mix is the very androgynously smexy No Min Woo. In the few stills I’ve seen there’s some hot and steamy action between him and Park Si Yeon. But, this drama is supposed to be all about four different couples so we will see!
Regardless, I think the biggest drama to watch is going to be Krystal and Rain’s drama, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be multiple dramas worth watching. I feel that Korea is really trying to outdo themselves this year.. and I’m not complaining!!
