As The Blade and Petal wraps up this week, next week KBS presents what feels like an old-fashioned four corner melodrama into the mix. I like the cast so I’m going to check it out Secret, but the sensation that this drama is playing catch up from the get go leaves me worried about its quality. Starring Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, Bae Soo Bin, and Lee Da Hee, the story is about how a pair of poor young lovers make mistakes and then proceed to screw up the lives of two rich kids. Bae Soo Bin is a sensitive smart young man who dreams of becoming a prosecutor. An unfortunate car accident would derail his dreams but for his devoted girlfriend Hwang Jung Eum taking the fall for him. She is willing to do anything for her oppa and has no regrets. Except while she’s incarcerated, oppa moves on to rich and connected Lee Da Hee, betraying her and her sacrifice. Ji Sung is a second generation chaebol described as being a total arrogant ass, having everything but a good personality. His beloved girlfriend dies in that car accident and he nurses a hatred of the person responsible for her death. Lee Da Hee is a woman who has everything and then starts to suffer for the first time when she encounters a love that cannot be hers. The first official characters stills are out and its nothing to write home about, though I’m peeved that the production couldn’t put the two leading men in suits that fit properly. The first teaser preview is also out and it reminds me so much of what Shark recently did, and is done quite often for melodramas, which is to do a teaser that is all symbols and pretty visuals without any correlation to the actual plot. I actually enjoyed the teaser which isn’t saying much, but at least the cast is pretty and everyone angsts very well. The only odd thing I noticed about the posters is that there isn’t one with the main leads or the second leads together as well.
