The Korean Cultural Centre UK have an upcoming drama screening event Korean Drama on Thursday 4th June. Casting the heroine in a remake of a famous drama is challenging, and I would have gone for someone with proven experience handling the role of a modern woman in a romantic drama and making it layered and appealing. The Time I’ve Loved You is still entertaining, and the underlying story allows our two leads constant interaction and plenty of small cute interchanges, so the drama is perfectly watchable. It’s just missing, in every part of it, any extra spark of chemistry, romance, or magic that lifts a drama from unexceptional to memorable. As much as I liked the taiwanese one… I hate the korean version!.. ‘In time with you’ is one of my fav.
Many fans from the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia and China became tourist and flocked to see the drama studios and the filming locations of big productions like Jewel In The Palace. Korean drama has become very popular all over the world because of its fresh take on soaps. Korean writers have been flexing their cretive muscles and people from all over the world are taking notice. The result is a production that has a very discernible Korean flavor to it, which surprisingly appeals to viewers worldwide. One thing’s for sure though, Korean producers are sticking to the age-old recipe of good writing coupled with crafty production and smart casting.
A Historical drama about Yoo Jung, also known as Jung Yi, the first female potter in the Joseon Dynasty and regarded as the dojo of Shintaro porcelain. This drama depicts Jung Yi early life in Joseon instead of Japan, where a shrine is dedicated to her. A drama about an average commoner woman Han Se Kyun becoming the daughter-in-law of a Cheongdam-dong family. The drama revolves around a guy and a girl, who both experience a painful end to their first loves at the tender age of 15, and then meet again as adults by playing game of love hide and seek. Maybe this drama remind us with Master Sun but this drama has its own comedy that make it different.
The manhwa adaptation is a fusion fantasy drama set in Joseon, and is the love story between a vampire scholar and a young woman who dresses as a man to sell books. It’ll be directed and produced by the same director and producer from Coffee Prince, too, and air on TVN. Hogu’s Love — I want to see how this drama tackles teen pregnancy, and Hogu reminds me of my boyfriend, Young! Orange Marmalade — This Korean drama took a wrong turn, leaving the webtoon behind and going back in time, too. I’ll be watching these Korean dramas (when I have more time!) thanks to your recommendations, but for now the verdict is still out on which one of these shelved Korean dramas that I would tell someone that they must watch!
