KBS Mon-Tues drama I Remember You (Hello Monster) finished airing last week, a drama I consciously chose to ignore since I don’t like Seo In Guk and only watch Jang Nara dramas if she’s paired up with a leading man I adore. The ratings were low on that one with mixed audience reactions to the plot, which means KBS continued its recent streak of being the bottom dweller among the big three for that time slot. Up next is a drama that aims to jump outside the box a little and hopefully with it bring in higher ratings – Eccentric Daughter-in-law (The Virtual Bride) will only run for 12-episodes and be a “show within a show” format much like Producer. This will be interesting….
Starring Dasom of Sistar, she plays an over-the-hill idol who tries to rekindle her popularity by going on a reality show playing a fake daughter-in-law to a rich family. Think Cindy going on 1N2D in Producer. Playing her pretend mother-in-law is veteran actress Goo Do Shim, and rounding out the cast are Ryu Soo Young and Ki Tae Young as the male leads with Son Eun Seo as the rival second female lead. I really like both Ryu Soo Young and Ki Tae Young, and usually both play second male leads who never get the girl. so this time I’ll check this out just to see one of them get a happy ending LOL. I actually think the drama looks hilarious from the previews, very sitcom-ish and that’s right up my mood as summer comes to a close.
