1.  Birth of a Beauty

Starring Joo Sang Wook and Han Ye Seul

As the heir to a large company, Han Tae Hee (Joo Sang Wook) has everything he could possibly want — except for his long lost love. But instead of nursing his heartache like a sensible person, Tae Hee enlists Sa Geum Ran (Han Ye Seul), whom he transforms from an overweight ugly duckling to a gorgeous bombshell named Sara. In the process of falling in love with his "creation" he discovers that even though it appears that money can buy just about everything, it can't buy love or heal emotional scars.

2.  Mr. Baek

Starring Shin Ha Kyun and Jang Na Ra

But in a strange turn of events, this classic scrooge gets a second chance at life when he wakes up as a younger version of himself (Shin Ha Kyun). With no way to prove his identity, Mr. Baek must enter his own company as a rookie and is forced to work his way up once again. With precious little time, Mr. Baek is given the opportunity to take stock of his life — and to give love a chance.

Under the guidance of Navi, Dae Choong develops his romantic prowess, but is the month-long crash course enough to score the kittenish pop-star Seo Rin (4Minute's Nam Ji Hyun)? Meanwhile, Dae Choong must also compete with Chun Ji Woon (Baek Sung Hyun), a handsome idol with the hots for Seo Rin.

5.  The Fatal Encounter

Starring Hyun Bin and Jo Jung Suk

 As the son of the infamous Crown Prince Sado, who was executed by his own father, King Jeongjo (Hyun Bin) inherits a misfortunate legacy himself: history remembers him as the king who survived seven assassination attempts within the first year of his reign. Embroiled in political strife since childhood, Jeongjo has only ever trusted the court eunuch Sang Chaek (Jung Jae Young), but these loyalties are tested when Jeongjo becomes the target of an assassination that may hit very close to home.

Coming Next Week

1. Pinocchio

Starring Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk

Amidst a sea of young news reporters competing for the next scoop, Choi In Ha (Park Shin Hye) finds herself in a tricky position, as she cannot tell a lie without a dead giveaway: breaking into a violent hiccup. Meanwhile, first-year reporter Choi Dal Po (Lee Jong Suk) proves his remarkable memory and communication skills by downplaying his good looks with a dumpy veneer of bad hair and clothing. But in a world where hard facts rule, how far can you get by lying?

2. Sergeant Tabloid

Lui Fei-hap (Niki Chow), known as "Lui Hap", is a thirty-one-year-old Emergency Unit sergeant of the Hong Kong Police Force, who has been let down in love many times, so when she finds her perfect man (Vincent Wong), she jumps at the opportunity, never suspecting that he is a drug baron until she arrests him. To make things worse, their relationship hits the headlines when tabloid reporter Gordon Lam (Michael Tse), known as A1, stumbles upon it while following another story. Lui Hap's and A1's paths continue to cross when pursuing duties and stories, sometimes cooperating and sometimes as enemies, sometimes saving the other and at other times the target of each other's practical jokes. Before long, Lui Hap finds herself falling in love with new recruit Wong Tze-tsuen (Matthew Ko), only for A1 to stand in her way again. Pushed to her limits both at work and in love, Lui Hap has no choice but to fight back in the name of love. (source)
