New and Coming Soon to DramaFever September 14 to September 20
This week we have a fun new high school web drama, a stunning Japanese historical saga, and the amazing KCON concert footage that you won't want to miss. Next week we have a dramatic Korean daily drama, two classic shows from the BBC, a sweet romantic comedy film, and a documentary about one of K-pop's hottest groups. Let's take a look!
1. http://1hop.co/oujcu/gdorm/">Yae's Sakura
Yae's Sakura tells the story of Niijima Yae (Haruka Ayase), also known as Yamamoto Yaeko, who was born into the Aizu Domain during the late Edo period. Skilled in gunnery, she helped defend Aizu during the Boshin War, earning her the nickname of the “Bakumatsu Joan of Arc.” After the war, she married educator Joseph Hardy Neesima (Niijima Jo) and became a Christian, and she helped Neesima found Doshisha University.
Members of the talented new K-pop boy group Astro, comprised of Lee Dong Min, Kim Moon Bin, Park Jin Woo, Kim Myung Jun, Yoon San Ha, and Park Min Hyukhas, worked hard and sacrificed to make it to the top, but just before their debut their fates change when they are magically sent back in time to get a second chance at redoing their mistakes. Now it's up to Jeong Ah Rin (Kim Sae Ron), a girl with mysterious powers to see the future, to get them back to the future.
Bringing you the best of KCON 2015 in New York and Los Angeles, with acts from Shinhwa, Super Junior, AOA, Red Velvet, GOT7, SISTAR, Zion.T & Crush, and more! Also featuring special guests Kim Soo Hyun and Daniel Henney!
While studying fashion in the U.S., Han Ah Reum (Shin So Yool) falls for Philip (Yang Jin Woo), a successful financier. But when he knocks her up and abandons her for an advantageous marriage, Ah Reum returns to Korea, determined to raise their child on her own. Braving the stigma of being a single mother, Ah Reum excels at the fashion company Winner, where love blossoms between the young designer and her director Chun Sung Woon (Kim Heung Soo) — until Philip decides to take responsibility at any cost.
2. London Hospital Series (Season 1)
Romance, surgery and history combine in this vivid, atmospheric drama based on the lives and case notes of doctors, nurses and patients at the Royal London Hospital a century ago. Through extreme hardship shines a spirit of forbearance and self-sacrifice that seems remarkable now.
3. Sharpe's Challenge (movie)
Starring Sean Bean and Padma Lakshmi
Based on the popular Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell, Sharpe's Challenge follows Richard Sharpe (Sean Bean) on assignment to India, where he must rescue the daughter of a general from her kidnappers. Surrounded by danger, including the conniving and seductive Madhuvanthi (Padma Lakshmi), Sharpe faces his greatest challenge yet.
4. Miss Granny (movie)
74-year-old Oh Mal Soon (Na Moon Hee) is a bitter widow that lives with her son, but when her daughter-in-law collapses, Mal Soon is determined to be the cause of her emotional and mental exhaustion. Before being shuttled off to a nursing home, Mal Soon stumbles upon a photobooth, where she laments her life's regrets, but when she emerges from the photobooth, she discovers she’s turned back to her 20-year-old self. Blessed with another shot at life, will Mal Soon make the right choices?
Update: We previously listed Finding Mr. Destiny as this week's movie. That film will be airing in November, and Miss Granny will be this week's release. We apologize for the confusion.
This one's a must-see for Big Bang fans! Go all the way back to the beginning with Big Bang in this documentary. Meet the members before their debut, learn about the original sixth member (BEAST's Hyunseung), and enjoy the throwback fashion from before Big Bang became the superstars we know and love today.
