I totally love all three posters released by The Time I Loved You (previously called The Time I’ve Loved You 7000 Days), the Korean remake of hit and popular Taiwanese drama In Time With You. I’m glad that I haven’t seen the original as I won’t have anything to compare it with and I can watch it with a fresh perspective, taking in its strengths and weaknesses all on its own merit. From the time
this show was announced, my most anticipated thing was seeing leading lady Ha Ji Won in a normal, modern, simple role and looks like it is finally happening! All her recent roles were larger-than-life — King 2 Hearts, Secret Garden and Empress Ki and I’m waiting with bells on to see her playing a girl-next-door. She is looking absolutely gorgeous in all promotional materials and Lee Jin Wook is equally attractive as well. The posters are full of warmth, compassion, slice-of-life vibes, just what I want from the show, which is being directed by the PD of Pinocchio and I Hear Your Voice. The story is about two best friends of 20 years who fall for different people in their lives but realise that they are actually in love with each other. It’s a premise which has been done lots of times but for dramaland, it’s quite less in numbers, which I can count on the fingers of one hand. One poster shows our couple sitting comfortably together, the second one adds coffee mugs to it (bringing in more warmth and summery feel) with a light forehead kiss and the third one features them standing on two opposite balconies, where Ha Ji Won is looking at something at a distance while Lee Jin Wook is staring at her intensely. They also look cute in school uniforms and it’s clear that they are having a blast filming those scenes.
The rest of the cast for The Time I Loved You includes Yoon Kyun Sang (hyung in Pinocchio) as a pianist who once dated our heroine and enters her life again after 5 years. Choo Soo Hyun (seen as reporter in Pinocchio) plays Lee Jin Wook’s girlfriend while Lee Joo Seung (High School King Of Savvy, Pinocchio) plays Ha Ji Won’s younger brother. Oh and as for our leads’ careers, Lee Jin Wook’s character work in an airline and Ha Ji Won plays a leader of marketing team in a shoe company. The show will also have a slew of cameos by stars like Chu Sung Hoon, Ohn Joo Wan, Yoon Sang Hyun and L as Ha Ji Won’s ideal men or lovers at some point of her life.
The Time I Loved You hits the airwaves this weekend on SBS, which is doing pretty bad in its weekend slot. Hopefully, this drama will hit a home run and bring back much-needed success.
Not a fan of either actors but the radiance of Ha Ji Won in those stills are the reason I’m considering giving this drama a try. Not decided yet, but I’m kinda tempted now. Plus, the synopsis is quite cool. I love friends falling in love LOL!
Ha Ji Won is looking very radiant! So true. I love her with her long hair the most… 🙂
I’m not a LJW fan but liked him in Three Musketeers..and yes, just like you, I’m a fan of this premise. Have you seen the original?
No, I wonder if I should watch it before watching this one…. Will I even have the time? LOL! How about you, have you seen it? Do you plan to?
Nope….haven’t seen the original. And I don’t plan to as I want to watch this one with fresh viewpoint.
Looking forward to it, Ha Ji Won is getting prettier by the the day *-* I really need a dramalike this, <> is the same style but although it started well now is getting a bit tiring, I still watch it though.
Oh yes….Ha Ji Won looks especially beautiful with long hair! I didn’t like her SeGa hair style.
I think the name you wanted to mention didn’t type properly…so I’m not able to understand which drama you’re talking about…
The drama “Warm and Cozy”.
It is weird how much I LOVE those posters and the warm feeling in them but I am zero interested to check the drama itself 😀 May be this will change when it start airing ^^
Aww….why….the story sounds cool…I hope the drama delivers and yes, the posters are GORGEOUS!
I did like the original but I don’t know why I am not interested to see this version!!! I will wait for some reviews, may be I will change my mind 🙂
I had tried in my early days in dramaland to watch the original version, which would be my first ever taiwanese drama, but I failed miserably. It wasn’t the story or the actors it was just the way it was filmed I guess. I was so used to korean dramas that the way this drama was filmed felt really weird and decided to try it another time in the future.
But I’m excited for the korean version! It is a theme that I find quite interesting when it’s done well and the posters definitely give me the warm feelings that I need to start watching it! 🙂
Aw it’s always nice to hear from you brightfotini! How are you doing? I have seen only one TW drama…which was Office Girls…it started out pretty well but then I was bored in the second half of the show…and I FF most of it…only the OTP was great!
Do start it….the first 2 eps were really good! I would love to hear your thoughts on it….hope to see you more often at blogoverse 🙂
Ohh my God! I’ve just seen your reply and it’s almost two months old! I’m so sorry but I hadn’e logged to my blog for so long I hadn’t realised I haven’t been here for two whole months! 😦
Although it is true that because I was working and was taking some german lessons my only free time that I had was to sleep.. 😦
Anyway I did watch the first episode of this one and really liked so when I’m done with my german exams in two weeks i’m thinking about picking it up again!
I’ve missed all of you here in the blogoverse…. Hopefully I’ll have more time to blog and watch dramas in September!!
Better late than never 🙂
It’s great to hear from you from time to time…I wish you were as active in dramaland and blogosphere as before because I miss our chats…hehe…but take your time. Blogs and dramas can wait. It’s nice to hear that you are not loosing your sleep for them… 😛
I dropped this drama as I got busy after first 2 episodes and by the time I returned, there were only negative reviews about it.
