New and Coming Soon to DramaFever June 1 through June 7
This week we saw an intriguing and surprisingly funny new melodrama and an intense movie that sent us on an emotional roller coaster. Next week is full of new dramas with a new Korean crime romantic comedy, a web drama starring the hottest K-pop band, a fun new Taiwanese romantic comedy, a classic romantic drama from Hong Kong, a touching Korean melodrama, and a hit international variety show-turned-movie. Let's take a look!
Desperate to distance herself from her father's crippling debt, Byun Ji Sook (Soo Ae) begins to pose as Seo Eun Ha (Soo Ae), a wealthy socialite with an eerie resemblance to Ji Sook. While playing her new role, she has a chance meeting with Min Woo (Joo Ji Hoon), a cynical CEO desperate to escape his privileged world. Invigorated by her atypical "rich girl" personality, Min Woo quickly falls for "Eun Ha," but how long can Ji Sook keep up the charades before Min Woo discovers she's an impostor?
When Li Pei Ru (Shu Qi) moves to Beijing to strike it rich as an opportunistic real estate developer, she only winds up landing herself in a hot mess, including an alcohol problem and a married man. At her lowest point, she crosses paths with Fang Zhen Dong (Liu Ye), an honest and simple local officer who eventually changes Pei Ru's entire world for the better. But just when happiness seems possible for this unlikely match, their greatest hurdle presents itself suddenly and tragically.
Da Hae Chul (Joo Sang Wook) is a prosecutor by day, but the law isn't always enough to punish wrongdoing. At night, he dons a mask to take justice into his own hands. Yoo Min Hee (Kim Sun Ah) is a talented police detective who is over the violent crime division.
Ji Yeon Hee (Ga Young Moon) is an offbeat girl living an unremarkable life, but when the K-pop group EXO — (played by EXO members Park Chan Yeol, Do Kyung Soo, Byun Baek Hyun, and Oh Se Hun) — moves in next door, her life suddenly becomes the ultimate "boy next door" fantasy. And to top it off, both Chan Yeol and Kyung Soo both develop feelings for their unwitting neighbor. Can Yeon Hee handle a love triangle with two of the hottest boys in the block (and in the world)?
As someone who is good looking, well loved, and the head of a successful equity firm, Xia You Qian (Jasper Liu) seemingly excels at everything in life, including correctly assessing people at first glance using his acute observation skills. When he is invited to judge a competition, he has an encounter with An Xi (Mandy Wei), who nearly accidentally caused his death 10 years prior. An Xi entered the competition to try to save the hostel she inherited from her grandpa, but Xia You Qian’s grudge against her causes her to lose. Now An Xi may be forced to marry someone she doesn't love, unless she can convince the man who sees everything that everything is not as it seems.
In his youth, Ji Eun Ho (Baek Sung Hyun) fell wildly in love with Ji Eun Dong (Yoon Se Hee), but their pure love never survived the heartbreaking circumstances that eventually separated them. 20 years later, Eun Ho (Joo Jin Mo) continues to harbor a flame for his first love, despite his fame and fortunate as a popular actor. Can a chance meeting with Eun Dong (Kim Sa Rang) heal Eun Ho's cold heart, or has his second shot at true love already passed?
This hit Hong Kong drama revolves around the lives of employees of Solar Airways in Hong Kong’s International Airport. Sam (Francis Ng) and Belle (Flora Chan) meet by chance in Rome and after chasing each other through the city in a series of coincidental meetings, they pair up for the night. The next time they see each other, Belle is dating Sam’s best friend and fellow pilot Vincent (Joe Ma). Now Sam and Belle must attempt to resolve their relationship and desire for each other.
In the adventurous spirit of South Korea's wildly popular reality show Running Man, two teams comprised of Chinese celebrities — Wang Baoqiang, Li Chen, Zheng Kai, Angelababy, Chen He, and South Korean singer and TV personality Kim Jong Kook — embark on an epic and competitive quest requiring fast thinking, street smarts and teamwork. Amidst working out clashing personalities and silly hijinks, which team will take home the ultimate prize?
