Here comes the late-Winter 2014 K-dramas! I feel like this year is already off to the races while I’m still scrambling to get out of bed and fumbling for my slippers. The most high profile K-drama is the thriller Three Days starring Park Yoo Chun, Son Hyun Joo, Park Ha Sun, So Yi Hyun, Kim Young Chul, and Yoon Je Moon. It’s about a presidential assassination attempt and Yoochun is the lead presidential bodyguard trying to protect his man and get to the bottom of a vast conspiracy. I must say he looks in fine form at the script reading already and with his turn as a dogged cop in Missing You it should be an easy transition to presidential bodyguard. The PD directed I Like You while the screenwriter penned popular procedural hits like Ghost and Sign as well as the mystery Harvest Villa. Three Days premieres February 26th on SBS taking over the successful Wed-Thurs slot from You From Another Star. Also dropping in February is the melodrama Full Sun over on KBS, taking over once Prime Minister and I wraps up its 17-episode run on Mon-Tues. Starring Yoon Kye Sang, Han Ji Hye, Song Jong Ho, Kim Yoo Ri, Jo Jin Woong, and Son Ho Joon, this one sounds as straight up melo as it gets what with the leading man going to jail for a murder and then falling for the fiancee of the dead guy. It’s set in the world of diamonds and grifting and comes to us without much to compare it with since the scriptwriter has one full drama under her belt which is the major stinker Dream High 2 though she also penned the movie All About My Wife and a bunch of drama specials. I would feel a lot more at ease if Full Sun was being written by Lee Kyung Hee but she’s off doing a weekender instead. The PD is pretty talented having helmed Wild Romance and Women of the Sun so the visuals should be interesting at least. Speaking of the Lee Kyung Hee written weekender Wonderful Season (Very Good Times), it also started filming with Lee Seo Jin, Kim Hee Sun, Taecyeon, and Lee Elijah. I’ll refrain from making a crack about how much acting fail has been assembled in this one drama save for Lee Seo Jin. Put all or none of these on your watch list depends on what sounds interesting.
