I know the global entertainment industry has run out of ideas hence the remakes, reboots and excessive number of superhero television shows but do we really need to remake a 13-year old drama? This alone make me scream “FLOP” but I’d love to be wrong.
The synopsis from AsianWiki:
Lee Jae-In (Ha Seok-Jin) possesses a good appearance, he is smart and comes from a wealthy family, but he is also arrogant. His grandfather orders Jae-In to enter into a 10 month contract engagement with a female school teacher that he has never met in his life. Lee Jae-In slowly falls in love with her.
Hmm. Contract marriage dramas are so 00s but I’m going to stop being negative. Ha Seok Jin is currently having fun playing the crotchety Jung Suk on tvN’s Drinking Solo while his co-lead Jeon So Min is currently playing… honestly, I am unfamiliar with this actress but she’s been featured in dramas such as Tomorrow Victory and Babyfaced Beauty.
It must be difficult to reinterpret a role already made famous by another so it’ll be interesting to see how different this one will be. I personally haven’t seen the original so I won’t spend my time comparing and contrasting if I watch this.
Here are the teasers:
This pre-produced drama will be broadcast online on Oksusu starting September 30th and on TV on DramaX starting October 5th. DramaFever will release its subbed version starting October.
