My Comment :

This was the first drama of Han Ji Hye that I watched. I actually watched it because of Kim Min Jong, one of my favorite K-Actors. The story was actually nice but the only flaw was on the proportion of funny and sad scenes. The story was so funny in the earlier episodes but later became sadder till the end. I prefer drama with balance proportion between funny and sad scenes.

    Synopsis :

    Seo Young Ji (Han Ji Hye) was from a poor upbringing and worked as hard as she could to better herself. She went to see a plastic surgeon, hoping that by changing her appearance she would have a better future. The surgeon, a beautiful young woman called Jeong Ah Mi (Song Seon Mi), asked her for a favor. Ah Mi had been set up on a blind date with Kim Jun Woo (Kim Suk Hoon), but she really had no interest in going. So she asked Young Ji to go under false pretense. Young Ji agreed to help out with the intention to turn the guy off but the blind date was a hit and the two started dating.

    Add to the equation Choi Do Kyeong (Kwon Oh Joong), a poor but ambitious social climber, who would do anything to marry rich. He rejected Young Ji as she was poor and did his best to go after Ah Mi.

    My Comment :

    Although this is not one of the best K-Drama but I still found it enjoyable. This drama is quite different from typical K-Drama. No fairy tales and cinderella-type story. Both the male and female characters are quite materialistic and realistic at the same time. Although Jun Woo loves Young Ji but he cannot accept Young Ji’s poor life that is why their love encounter so many problems. This sometimes makes Jung Woo looks like a coward. However, at the end, love conquers all and Young Ji herself can make her dream come true to become an author after striving for some time.

    The Synopsis :

    Are you interested in both dramas and musicals? Here is the very first 2-in-1 surprise from Korea tailor-made for you! Starring So Yoo-jin (Fox and Cotton Candy, Delicious Proposal) and Park Kwang-hyun (Sunshine, Tender Hearts), The Bean Chaff Of My Life invites you to walk along with two young people on the path leading to their maturity.
    When Eun-young (Soh Yoo Jin) and Kyung-soo (Park Kwang-hyun) meet each other in their early 20’s, no one can picture these two, who share no common goals but high expectations towards their potential mate, falling for each other. As a decade goes by, nevertheless, what grows along with their age is their bittersweet growing experience enriched with ups and downs. The stories of Eun-young and Kyung-soo interweave and finally come together in a surprising moment of shared recognition.

    My Comment :

    Although this drama is already quite old but I just watched it last year. Despite the not-very-good review, I still like it anyway. It is the only musical K-Drama I have ever watched. I like the chemistry between Park Kwang Hyun and So Yu Jin here.
    Eun Young (SYJ) and Kyung Soo (PKH)’s love story span for about ten years before they finally find out that they are actually each other’s better half. I like the OSTs as well that is why I made the MVs.
    Han Ji Hye and Bin also played small roles in this drama.
