Korean Drama - I Love You (我爱你/Saranghae)
Another new Korean SBS drama that i'm looking forward to watching is "I Love You/ 我爱你/Saranghae" (16 episodes)which was broadcasted in Korea from 7 April 2008 to 27 May2008. This drama is based on a popular manga of cartoonist Huh Young Man. The drama is produced by Lee Chang Han, who also produced “A Wonderful Life” and “She Is Nineteen". My favourite actor Ahn Jae Wook is also starring in the drama and it has been awhile since i watched his drama "Mr Goodbye".
The main characters of this drama Ahn Jae Wook (Oh Pil Seung Bong Soon Young, Mr Goodbye) and Seo Ji Hye (Over the Rainbow) is a somewhat mismatched pairing — he’s 36, she’s 23 — although the unlikeliness of the couple is part of the point. Her naive 21-year-old bank employee character Ng Young Hee meets his 35-year-old comic-book-writer character Suk Chul Soo on the subway, and mistakes his behavior for harassment. Thus begins their relationship, which becomes more complicated when she is pregnant and he’s less than thrilled about it.
Also starring in the drama are Hwan Hee of pop ballad duo Fly to the Sky in his second acting gig as Park Byung Ho who’ll be paired with new actress Park Hye Young who stars as Lee Young Hee , as well as Gong Hyung Jin who acts as philandering lawyer husband Do Min Ho and actress Jo Mi Ryung as his long-suffering wife and Ng Young Hee's elder sister, Na Jin Hee.
This is a romance comedy drama that tells the story of a couple who just had a baby because of a one night stand. It will portray the modern generation’s view on love and marriage as well as the responsibility of raising a child. Park Byung Ho was thoughtless and threw away his child for a better income and life who later regrets this and learns to love.
