New and Coming Soon to DramaFever
This week, we binged-watched an adorable hit historical and a foodie drama perfect for snacking to, and saw two romantic new movies. Next week, we'll see a touching family drama, a lighthearted culinary historical drama, a highly anticipated fantasy romance, and another romantic new movies. Take a look!
Park Bo Gum (Tomorrow’s Cantabile, Answer Me 1988) and Kim Yoo Jung (Golden Rainbow, Secret Door) star in a gender bender historical drama about mistaken identity bringing about unmistakable love. Hong Ra On (Kim Yoo Jung) has one of the most unique jobs in the Joseon Dynasty: she disguises herself as a man named Sam Nom and gives great dating advice to lovelorn souls seeking to woo that special someone. Because of one of the letters she writes to help win someone over, she ends up meeting Lee Young (Park Bo Gum). But little does she know that Lee Young is actually the future Crown Prince Hyomyung. Lee Young, for his part, also doesn’t know that Hong Ra On is a woman. With both their interests in each other intensifying, things start to get more than a little weird. And those weird things get even weirder when Ra On is sold into the Royal Palace as a eunuch and becomes involved in a political power struggle. Is this a dilemma a dating guru and handsome royalty can solve, or will the darkness of the clouds of greed and deception enshroud the love in the moonlight?
2. Let's Eat
Lee Soo Kyung (Loving You a Thousand Times) and BEAST’s Yoon Doo Joon (IRIS 2) star in a foodie romantic comedy where the truest love is on a dinner plate. Lee Soo Kyung (Lee Soo Kyung) is a 33-year old paralegal divorcee who regrets her decision to marry before she was ready for it, and for that reason, attempts to carry herself with poise and dignity. Unfortunately, she is also an incurable gourmand, and can’t help herself around great food. Her close neighbor at her home, the Royal Family Condominium, is the mysterious Goo Dae Young (Yoon Do Joon), another food fanatic who paradoxically loves eating at fancy restaurants but hates being asked why he is eating alone. He also lies a lot, but is nothing but truthful in his colorful, forthright descriptions of food. Together, both neighbors spend their lives in relative isolation, only finding true love in the form of delicious kimchi. But when there is a mysterious murder in their area, can both these culinary soul mates continue the search that will invariably lead them to each other and, more importantly, to the perfect meal?
Former EXO heartthrob Kris Wu and Liu Yi Fei star in a romantic drama that proves if someone was destined to be in your life, even time can’t tear them away. Su Yunjin (Liu Yi Fei) is a struggling high school student from a regional town. Cheng Zheng (Kris Wu) is a rich heir and the star student who sits behind her. The heir falls in love with the likeable Su Yunjin and decides to pursue her, even after they graduate and start living in different cities. Eventually, after they have graduated from their university, Su Yunjin finally accepts Cheng Zheng’s love, and the two move in together. However, the lovebirds soon realize they may have jumped the love gun; with way too many differences in both their backgrounds and their personalities, the two prove incompatible and drift apart. Years later, Su Yunjin and Cheng Zheng have established successful careers and end up moving into the same neighborhood. Different relationships, different circumstances and different times mean a lot has changed, but Su Yunjin and Cheng Zheng are still not quite able to settle into their new lives because, perhaps, it is as if they never moved on from each other. Can they rekindle what they once had because their love was never gone or, just like last time, will they come to the bitter realization that true love was never there to begin with?
Shu Qi and Eddie Peng star in a romantic comedy that shows if you can’t find love, it will find you. Sheng Ruxi (Shu Qi) is a career-driven, thirty-something Shanghai bachelorette, whose name even rhymes with the slang term “sheng nu,” or “leftover woman.” Her mother (Tiger Mom alum Pan Hong), worried about Sheng not having found the right spouse yet, pushes her daughter to be with Dr. Bai (1911 actor Xing Jiadong). Unfortunately, Sheng Ruxi finds the doctor oddly annoying and has no real wish to settle down with him, but she does want to meet that special someone. Meanwhile, joining her company is Ma Sai (Eddie Peng), her handsome new 25-year-old colleague who she decides she wants to spend the rest of her life with, much to the chagrin of her mother. And while he doesn’t share her mother’s opinion, Sheng Ruxi also doesn’t receive support from her father (veteran actor Shih Chieh King), who instead tries to explain to her that she doesn’t need to be nervous about her age and should not rush into anything. Sheng Ruxi, however, is worried that time is running out and realizes that if she doesn’t make her move with Ma Sai now, the chance may never come again. Can our increasingly nervous bachelorette win this battle of the heart or will she once again attend another wedding and leave as the last woman standing?

2. Gilded Chopsticks (November 30)

3. Goblin: The Lonely and Great God (December 2)
Gong Yoo (Coffee Prince), Kim Go Eun (Cheese in the Trap) and Lee Dong Wook (Blade Man, My Girl) star in a supernatural romance that proves love can find its way past anything, including death. Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is an immortal “goblin,” and has the rather honorable title of being the Protector of Souls. His roommate Wang Yeo (Lee Dong Wook) also happens to have the equally lofty, if thoroughly opposing, title of Angel of Death, and he acts as the storied grim reaper that claims souls. However, both these devilishly handsome angels have a problem: Wang Yeo has amnesia and Kim Shin wants to end his own (immortal) life. Unfortunately for goblins, the only way to defeat immortality is to marry a human bride. For that purpose, Kim Shin decides to win over Ji Eun Tak (Kim Go Eun) an optimistic high school girl who he thinks will be the priestess that ends his cursed existence. Now, once responsible for protecting souls and watching them pass, Kim Shin now tries to send his own to the afterlife. But when a slightly complicated method of suicide starts turning into true love, will our immortal goblin begin to regret his decision--where acting on that very love ultimately means the end of his life?
4. Let's Get Married (December 3)
Gao Yuanyuan (Ocean Heaven), Ivy Chen (Skip Beat), Liu Tao (Nirvana in Fire) and model Bea Hayden star in an ensemble romance about four women and their struggle to settle down in life. Wenwen (Gao Yuanyuan) owns a bridal boutique and has seen many women walk down the aisle, but hasn’t yet found her own soul mate, in spite of her wedding designer Old Chen (1911 actor Jiang Wu) having hosted a flame for her for years. Lei Xiao (Ivy Chen) works in an airport and has reached a breaking point of sorts with her pilot boyfriend Ling Xiao (Ryan Cheng from Running Man International Movie) because he cares for her but still refuses to commit and does not tie the knot. Violinist Yi Wen (Bea Hayden) takes a trip overseas before her wedding day and is now struggling to follow through with her engagement after meeting handsome Chinese-Italian tour guide Marco (Li Chen). And successful hotel manager Hai Xin (Liu Tao) finds herself in a game of professional tug-of-war, with her unexpected pregnancy interfering with the latest and lucrative job offer that requires a three-year commitment and leaves little room for starting a family with her buffoonish-but-sweet husband, Dapeng (comedian Wang Zijian). With their relationships tested and their patience wearing thin, these four women head into their next Qixi Festival (a Chinese festival similar to Valentine’s Day) in a position where their lives are more hectic than ever, and with all of them nearing the tipping point around that one crucial question: is marriage really the solution to all the problems that pop up in trying to find love?
