New and Coming Soon to DramaFever
This week, we saw the return of one of our favorite Korean stars in a new action-packed melodrama. Next week, we have an adorable romantic comedy web drama and a fun classic K-drama remake coming your way. Take a look!
1. The K2
Ji Chang Wook (Healer, Warrior Baek Dong Soo) and Song Yoon Ah (Assembly) star in a political drama that shows you really shouldn’t mess with somebody’s present when they can royally wreck your future. Kim Je Ha (Ji Chang Wook) is a former secret service agent, unquestionably patriotic yet abandoned by his colleagues. An elite soldier, Kim Je Ha is also tremendously athletic, armed with martial arts skills and ice-cool nerves known to few. He gets hired as a bodyguard by Choi Yoo Jin (Song Yoon Ah), the premier First Lady candidate and the daughter of a chaebol family. Behind Choi Yoo Jin’s kind and friendly demeanor, though, lies a woman with deep ambition and a ruthless willingness to pursue it at all costs. Amidst his struggles and her ambitions, there is also Go An Na (The Prime Minister and I star and SNSD member Im Yoon Ah), the reclusive and hidden daughter of the presidential hopeful who, due to a childhood trauma, is unable to communicate with the world and only sees love as a tool for revenge. So when she and Kim Je Ha, both abandoned souls slowly growing closer, decide to enact vengeance upon the people who wronged them, can they put their own traumas aside and focus, or will their emotional scars cause them to fail in their quest for retribution? Adding to the drama are Jang Se Joon (Neighborhood Hero alum Jo Sung Ha), the presidential candidate, Park Gwan Soo (Mirror of the Witch actor Kim Gab Soo), his morally questionable rival, and Kim Dong Mi (She Was Pretty star Shin Dong Mi), the steely and cold right-hand woman and chief secretary of the First Lady hopeful.
1. Go Ho's Starry Night (October 4)
Girls' Generation’s Kwon Yu Ri (Neighborhood Hero), Kim Young Kwang (Bachelor’s Vegetable Store, Pinocchio) and Lee Ji Hoon (Blood, Mirror of the Witch) star in a Chinese-Korean collaboration that combines the horror of having a terrible boss and ex-boyfriend with the joy of reaching for the stars. Go Ho (Kwon Yu Ri) is a 29-year-old advertisement contractor who wants success in both her career and romance. Unfortunately, neither seems to be working out particularly well because the only two men in her life are Kang Tae Ho (Kim Young Kwang), her short-tempered boss, and Hwang Ji Hoon (Lee Ji Hoon), her ex-boyfriend. Dealing with their increasingly irritating behavior and her decreasingly abundant time until she hits the “big thirty,” can Go Ho reach for the skies and capture her dreams, or will this starry night end in darkness?
2. One Percent of Something (October 5)
Ha Suk Jin (Let’s Drink, The Woman Who Married Three Times) and Jun So Min (Maids, Secret Investigation Record) star in a romantic comedy that proves the greatest wealth you can inherit is finding someone you love. Lee Jae In (Ha Suk Jin) is an entitled third-generation chaebol. He is handsome, intelligent and wealthy, all of which has predictably made him a touch arrogant. And while his uncompromising professionalism means he is nothing but pleasant to the customers of the hotel he owns, etiquette and politeness are not things known to him in his personal dealings. However, he is in for a rude awakening when he realizes that his grandfather has not left him the entire inheritance he is so fond of. Instead, that key to that fortune has gone to Kim Da Hyun (Jun So Min), a strong-willed elementary school teacher who is a complete stranger to Lee Jae In. And perhaps being a stranger isn’t even the strangest aspect of Grandpa’s will: in order to get his inheritance from her, Lee Jae In must marry Kim Da Hyun and live with her for 10 months. Should he refuse or fail to do so, our chaebol star can forget about ever getting that one thing that actually makes him a chaebol. Can a marriage brought upon by someone else’s force of will ever blossom into something more meaningful, or will the arrogant chaebol pack up with his inheritance as soon as this contract of matrimony runs out?
