Kdrama, King’s Daughter Soo Baek Hyang, Potato Star 2013QR3, Secret, Secret Love, Suspicious Housekeeper, Will You Love And Give It Away
There are so many dramas coming up in next two months that I don’t even know how I’ll manage to accommodate them. I guess I’ll have to cherry pick the shows based on my interest and their appealing power. I’ll keep the rest on shelf for later viewing. I’m listing the dramas that are starting in September and the factor that one might find intriguing about them.
Will You Love and Give It Away?
Date: 28 September (Sat-Sun)
Stars: Hong Soo Hyun, Lee Sang Yeob, Seo Ji Seok.
About: A family drama about the remarriage of two persons in the twilight years of their lives and how their respective families deal with it.
My Opinion: Weekend drama with an episode count of 50. Not my cup of tea and also the show doesn’t have any of my favorites to make me watch it even after the mentioned unexciting reasons. The drama looks adorable though.
King’s Daughter Soo Baek Hyang
Date: 30 September (Daily soap)
Stars: Jo Hyun Jae, Seo Woo, Seo Hyun Jin.
About: A sageuk set during the time of King Muryeong of Baekjae.
My Opinion: Daily drama + sageuk is a combination I can never go onboard with. But of course these shows get very good ratings and if one wants to see their favorites for like 100 episodes, it’s a fair deal to give it a go.
Secret Love (or Secret)
Date: 25 September (Wed-Thur)
Stars: Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, Bae Soo Bin, Lee Da Hee
About: A romantic melodrama about a man who falls in love with a woman who killed his first love (but actually she didn’t and took the blame for her boyfriend in order to protect his future, but he later abandons her).
My Opinion: Yeah….pretty convoluted story, but that’s what makes these melodramas intriguing, right? I like the cast and I haven’t set my eyes on any melo since last year when I watched Nice Guy. As a result, I’m pretty much interested in it.
Date: 23 September (Mon-Tue)
Stars: Choi Ji Woo, Lee Sung Jae, Kim So Hyun, Wang Ji Hye
About: An enigmatic housekeeper who begins working with a family after the mother dies and helps heal their emotional wounds. It is a Korean remake of a hit Japanese series.
My Opinion: The show looks quite suspenseful in terms of atmosphere because I have no idea what’s in store with this one. It might be a mixture of poignancy and mystery, which is appealing but I’m not finding myself much attracted towards the show.
Potato Star 2013QR3
Date: 23 September (Mon-Thur)
Stars: Yeo Jin Goo, Lee Soon Jae, Ha Yun Soo, Go Kyung Pyo
About: A sitcom from High Kick PD which takes a look at the comedic lives of a family put into a sudden, thrilling and emergency situation created by the crashing of two planets.
My Opinion: I would have definitely watched this if only it didn’t have 100 and more episodes. Sigh. It looks like a perfect blend of fun, romance, family and emotions and lots of warmth.
Looking forward to “Will You Love and Give It Away?” because of Hong Soo Hyun and Lee Sang Yeob XD.
I saw the Japanese version of “Suspicious Housekeeper” and although it had high ratings, it wasn’t much to it so I’m not really sure about the Korean version 0_0
Really…..my interest has decreased more now….
Will You Love….. sounds adorable and cute….let me know your review when you watch it 🙂
Will You Love and Potato Start sound really really cute but no way I can cope with a gabillion episodes. Suspicious Housekeeper was on my radar coz Lee Sung Jae stole a bitty piece of my heart in A Wife’s Credentials (I don’t want to acknowledge he was in Gu Family Book). Too many dramas this season! Ottoke?!!
I know…..so many dramas and there are even more which are premiering in October…..phew….so difficult to manage 😀
I’m going to watch Secret and Suspicious Housekeeper, mainly for the casts. I’m actually not sure about Secret because if it just goes like Nice Guy, i’m gonna get really sick of it. But the main girl at least sounds like she’ll be decent person, which was my main problem with Nice Guy. That no one was actually nice, lol. So if I can at least root for the main girl, I’ll find a reason to keep watching.
As to Suspicious Housekeeper, I just really like Choi Ji Woo.
The others are all too long. I want to watch Potato Star but 100 episodes is just too many.
I’m glad there are actually dramas coming up that I’m actually interested in. At the moment, I’m only watching one currently airing drama! There was just nothing else this season that grabbed me.
Same thing happened with me for Nice Guy….I just couldn’t find any emotional connection with any of the characters….it was an interesting watch but with very little heart….
I’m also watching only 2 (can’t watch more than that otherwise I would be confused. LOL)
Waiting for Heirs, Answer Me 1994 and Ghost Detective…. for different reasons 🙂
