I need to thank the K-version of Fated to Love You for plastering a happy grin on my face with its latest and most substantive teaser to date. I can’t believe this drama is premiering next week! Oh how times flies and it did fly a little faster for the FTLY remake since its predecessor A New Leaf shaved two episodes off its run. I’m glad this drama started filming pretty early plus it’s a rom-com so less preparation all around then if it was a sageuk. FTLY did have an extensive overseas shoot in Macau but that’s in the bag already. The overseas shoot portion in Macau plays a critical plot point in this drama, with the former Portugal colony and now special administrative region of China standing in for the infamous cruise of the original drama. I quite liked the cruise setting because it hasn’t been done to death and conveyed a sense of confinement amping up how the OTP meet.
In the K-version, leads Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara end up in the same Macau casino hotel and a series of laughable and improbable hijinks ensue that lead them into bed with each other. It’s not one of those chaste falling asleep in the same bed scenarios that K-dramas so love to toss out there, the lovely Jangs will be doing the horizontal mambo after some cold medicine and some aphrodisiac collide. A baby is made and the rest of the drama will involve a reluctant couple forced into matrimony and discovering along the way that they are made for each other. The third teaser is chock full of pratfalls and physical gags which once again confirms this version will share the same zany DNA as the TW-original. This teaser also gives a better peek at the second leads Choi Jin Hyuk and Wang Ji Won and both are looking mighty gorgeous as well.
