Channel U has started showing another interesting Korean drama "Likable Or Not" every Monday to Friday, 7pm. This 168 episodes KBS drama was shown in Korea in 2007 and stars Han Ji Hye who had acted previously in 2004 drama "Sweet 18" and i had enjoyed watching the drama. I'm gonna watch "Likable Or Not" because of her and also because i enjoys watching romance and family drama. Han Ji Hye stars as Dan Poong who is the director of marketing for Bonjour Foods. Smart and hardworking, Dan Poong ascended to her position at a young age, but her professional demeanor is disturbed by Baek Ho's rookie mistakes. She is being courted by Hyunwoo, a doctor.
The excellent performances by the actors also become a driving force for its popularity in Korea. Older actors, such as Kim Yeong-wook, Kim Hae-sook, and Lee Jeong-gil, and younger actors like Han Ji Hye, Jo Dong-hyeok, Yoo In-yeong, and Lee Young-eun, also account for the rise of ratings. You can also watch the drama online at http://www.mysoju.com/likable-or-not/.
This drama started with the intention to rethink the true meaning of family through the story of a remarried family from different bloodlines, backgrounds, and moral values. It is a story of a remarried couple that decides to start a life together despite differences in background and values. This drama is a story about love, family, and the realism of people’s dreams! Each character will experience their joy, frustration, and pain at times as they live out their daily lives.
Na Dan Poong (Han Ji Hye) is a company marketing team leader. Jang Hyun Woo (Lee Joong Moon) is a plastic surgeon and Baek Ho’s friend. Sun Jae (Jo Dong Hyuk) is good looking, smart, and makes very good decisions. He has a girlfriend, Ji Young (Lee Young Eun), who he met while they were in college. But to farther his ambitions, he breaks up with Ji Young to marry Bong Soo Ah (Yoo In Young) whose father is the owner of Bonjour Foods. The drama also shows what we should pursue in our lives by depicting the success and failure of another character, Sun Jae, who chooses money over love believing that money is power.
