Lead stars Lee Min Jung and Jung Kyung Ho were already popular prior to this hit weekend drama, but Smile You
launched them into bona-fide star status. Lee Min Jung, who leaped to public recognition in much-talked about Boys Over Flowers
, won many hearts over with her spunky, bubbly turn as a riches-to-rags princess in this drama, and Jung Kyung Ho has never been funnier as the beta male who falls for her. The writer and director team behind 2008's Last Scandal
brings the same warmth and hit-making charm to this comedy about family, romance, and changing fortunes.
Seo Jung In (played by Lee Min Jung) grows up the kind-hearted but spoiled and willful daughter of a wealthy family. When she, along with everyone else, discovers at her wedding ceremony that her family has just lost all their money, her life comes crashing down. Her fiance dumps her at the altar, and her family is forced to move in with their former chauffeur's family. Jung In and her family try to adjust to life in the Kang household, where sparks of the angry kind immediately fly between Jung In and the Kang's son, Hyun Su (Jung Kyung Ho). Hyun Su has been in love with Jung In's older sister Jung Kyung, as long as he can remember, but when Jung Kyung's forthright sister is abruptly dropped in his home, he just might find himself falling for someone unexpected.
With a solid suporting cast that includes veteran actor Choi Bul Am and Lee Kyu Han of Que Sera Sera
, Smile, You
, is a breezy, well-written drama lit by the chemistry and comic ability of its main leads. It deservedly won itself many devoted fans as well as a 16-episode extension while airing.
