It’s like this weird switch has been flipped on between Kim Tae Hee and myself. I won’t lie about how much she used to annoy me. But after My Princess, pretty much she’s turned over a new leaf in my eyes and I’m so easily charmed by her. It doesn’t hurt that she’s following up one sparkling rom-com with what appears to be another rom-com, the J-dorama Boku to Star no 99 Nichi (My 99 Days with a Star) with Nishijima Hidetoshi.
Kim Tae Hee will play a top Korean actress who is working in Japan for three months, while Nishijima Hidetoshi will be a part-time security guard assigned to protect her during those 99 days. Have a look at the first two teaser trailers, which are really peppy and definitely confirms this will be a light-hearted rom-com. The drama will premiere in October 23, 2011, and will be going head-to-head with KimuTaku‘s Nankyoku no Tairiku airing on TBS. I actually think this is brilliant counter programming by Fuji TV.
