New and Coming Soon to DramaFever
Last week, we saw a mature romantic comedy about finding love later in life, a beautiful critically-acclaimed Chinese historical drama, and our favorite K-pop stars performing live in New York. This week, we finally get to watch a highly anticipated K-drama starring some of Hallyu's most-loved flower boys. Take a look!
Kang Min Joo (Kim Hee Ae) is a pragmatic, single, 40-something television producer who has no time for love and pretends she doesn’t want any either. Deep down, though, she does wish something would happen in her love life. As fate would have it, she meets Go Sang Sik (Ji Jin Hee), an environmental facility section chief at city hall who sincerely believes he does not need any romance in his life. But when the two meet, love finds its way into their lives. Now, in a revival of the kind of romance they both left behind years ago, Kang Min Joo and Go Sang Sik will have to learn that no matter how much they try to deny it, the heart wants what the heart wants. Adding to the drama are Go Mi Ryeo (Oh My Ghostess star Kim Seul Gi), a webtoon writer and Sang Sik’s little sister, and Min Ji Sun (Detectives of Seonam Girls’ High School alum Stephanie Lee), a family friend’s old flame who will form a love triangle with the two hesitant romantics.
Starring Hu Ge and Liu Tao
During the 6th century, war broke out between the feudal Northern Wei and Southern Liang dynasties, leading Liang's General Lin Xie to take his only child, the 19-year-old Lin Shu, to battle. Unexpectedly, Lin Xie was framed by a political rival, causing the unjust deaths of seventy thousand Chiyan army soldiers, just after they drove off the hostile Wei forces. After barely escaping with his life, Lin Shu establishes the Jiangzuo Alliance with the help of Langya Hall and makes a name for himself as Mei Changsu, chief of the martial arts world. Under the alias of Su Zhe, he returns to the capital of Liang 12 years on to overturn the injustices imposed on the Chiyan Army and secretly assist his friend, the unfavored Prince Jing, in his battle for the throne.

1. Cinderella and Four Knights (August 12)
Park So Dam (Because It’s the First Time) and Jung Il Woo (Flower Boy Ramen Shop) star in a steamy spin on a classic fairy tale that is sure to make you believe in love again. Eun Ha Won (Park So Dam) is a bright college student who dreams of becoming a veterinarian. Unfortunately, she loses her mother in a car accident, moves in with a cruel stepmother, and has no money for her education. One day, she helps an old man and as fate would have it, moves into a gorgeous mansion with three equally gorgeous men, who also happen to be billionaire cousins and heirs to the Kang family fortune. Between the rebel-minded loner Kang Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo), playboy money machine Kang Hyun Min (Bloodlead Ahn Jae Hyun) and the super-sweet singer Kang Seo Woo (Sword and Flower alum Lee Jung Shin), Eun Ha Won finds herself in the middle of the hottest love quadrangle to ever befall a modern fairy tale princess. Rounding out the mansion’s chaebol lifestyle are Lee Yoon Sung (Pasta star Choi Min Sung), who serves as the cousins’ handsome bodyguard, and Park Hye Ji (Apink member and Twenty Again actress Son Na Eun), a gorgeous girl who has her own interests in the Kang family and isn’t above manipulating one cousin to get closer to another.
