Weekend dramas can prove to be a very long commitment as they are generally 50 episodes long. They can be warm and affectionate while others can be totally makjang and supremely annoying. I haven’t seen a long weekender yet. I did try You’re The Best Lee Soon Shin and What Happens To My Family and dropped the former for mixed bag of reasons while put the latter on hold as I’m not in a condition to commit to it right now. But it is a very warm and cute drama and I totally recommend it if anyone is searching something like that. The new kid on the block for Saturday-Sunday slot is Rosy Lovers and it will star Han Sun Hwa (of Kpop group Secret) and Lee Jang Woo (I Do, I Do). I think it’s a big leap for her as she was quite busy these two years in supporting roles and I didn’t realise it till this post but I’ve seen all her dramas with Ad Genius Lee Tae Baek (she played Jin Goo‘s sister), God’s Gift 14 Days (she was one of Jo Seung Woo‘s partners) and Marriage Not Dating (she was Yeon Woo Jin‘s ex-girlfriend). I think she was okay in all her performances but nothing mind-blowing to write home about. This longer series might give her an opportunity to improve I guess.
Rosy Lovers actually tells a different story than the rest of similar shows. It’s about a couple who is in college but unintentionally becomes parents and learns true love. Han Sun Hwa plays an immature girl who has never faced hardships while our hero will be an innocent and high-spirited engineering student. I like that for a change we have a different profession. The supporting cast includes Kim Min Seo (Good Doctor) as our heroine’s elder sister who is also like her sister, débutante Han Ji Sang plays our hero’s brother with Lee Mi Sook (Iron Man) and Phillip Choi (Soulmate) rounding out the cast. I like the stills and poster that hint for a cute set-up and I think when a child actor is present, it’s for sure that there will be lots of adorableness.
Rosy Lovers has some big shoes to fill as it was preceded by rating king Jang Bo Ri is Here! that garnered more than 30% number and remained at the top throughout its run. The drama is penned by writer of Oh Ja Ryong Is Coming and directed by the PD of Autumn Shower. It starts tomorrow!
