Hooray!!!!!



My drama slump is over!

The rescuer? Star's Lover, a Korean drama starring Choi Ji Woo and Yoo Ji Tae, and loosely inspired by Notting Hill. The first two episodes are out subbed and I am watching them right now. I fell in love about five minutes in.

Choi Ji Woo (one of my favorite Korean actresses) is Lee Ma Ri, a famous Korean actress who learned really early on that life is much easier if you get people to love you. After her parents' death, she's had a hardlife until she figured out how to 'trick' people into loving you, molding herself into whatever necessary and her craving for love and attention she was denied for so long reached its pinnacle by becoming a star, adored but unknown by thousands.

Yoo Ji Tae (I have not seen him before, but apparently he is a famous movie actor) is Kim Chul Soo, currently a professor of literature, who's become incredibly self-contained as a result of both his parents walking out on him at a young age: he's found comfort and safety in books.

Chul Soo and Ma Ri knew each other as children, and now these very different, and somewhat scarred by life people (with different escape mechanisms) will meet again.

It's wonderful! It has a certain whimsical, delicious vibe, the story is cool and funny and just...it's darling! Here is a trailer:

[livejournal.com profile] hiiyaa's post reminded me of how excited I am of the upcoming Korean drama Worlds Within. Darned if I have any idea of what it is about, but it stars two of Korea's arguably most beautiful actors, Hyun Bin (Snow Queen, Kim Sam Soon) and Song Hye Kyo (Full House, All In), was filmed in Singapore and has manpain (and womanpain).

What's not to love? Two trailers:






My upcoming most anticipated 2009 kdramas are one of the following three:

* Worlds Within

* IRIS: which stars the awesome Lee Byung Hun in his return to dramaworld. I'd watch anything with LBH, but this has international spies, angsty love story, and is possibly based on the wonderful movie Shiri.

* Triple: figureskaters, the PD of Coffee Prince, and the triple of hotness that is Kang Ji Hwan, Yoon Kye Sang, and Lee Sun Gyun

I am also excited for:

* Hana Yori Dango (duh)

* Star's Lover: Yoo Ji Tae and Choi Ji Woo (double swoon), with the whole 'normal guy in love with a star' storyline

Though, of course, if the rumored Yoon Eun Hye and Joo Ji Hoon romcom kdrama happens, all bets are off.

And in conclusion, is it any wonder I love Korean dramas? Normally, the whole plot cliche of "he is wounded and she takes care of him. In a cave" would only be in fic, but lovely Kingdom of the Winds believes in being very good to fangirls:
