Korean Drama - The Vineyard Man/The Man of the Vineyard
Starhub Channel 56 has been showing this 2006 drama by actress Yoon Eun Hye every Saturday 9pm and i had watched it last year when i bought the VCD set. It is a nice drama and i enjoyed the scenery where they filmed the drama in. The pairing up of Yoon Eun Hye and actor Oh Man Suk was also refreshing and they had great chemistry acting together and Oh Man Suk was very funny in his role as country bumpkin Jang Taek Gi. It was very sweet watching their romance blossoming in the vineyard and is a definite must watch drama for fellow Korean drama fans!
In this romantic-comedy drama, (an adaptation of the book The Vineyard Man by Kim Rang), Yoon Eun Hye plays Lee Ji Hyun, a clothing designer in Seoul, who reluctantly leaves home for one year to work at her grand uncle’s vineyard in a small village so that she can inherit his vineyard. However when arriving in the country, she reunites with a Jang Taek Gi (Oh Man Suk), a local resident who had been wrongfully arrested in Seoul by police after Ji Hyun reported having a dress-which she had designed-had been stolen. The two clash frequently as Ji Hyun has a difficult time adjusting to life in the country and working with Taek Gi. However, after many twists and turns, Ji Hyun adapts to the rustic life while falling in love with Taek Gi.
