Wahhhhh, I’m already salivating for Heard it Through the Grapevine and the drama doesn’t disappoint with the first intriguing teaser. Normally I get excited over the casting of a drama but this one has me roped in to watch PD Ahn Pan Seok‘s first prime time drama in seven years, not since the award-winning White Tower on MBC has he done a drama for the big three networks. His cable dramas since White Tower have all been met with critical raves and award-fodder for the leads lucky enough to be cast in A Wife’s Credentials, The End of the World, and Secret Love Affair.
Heard it Through the Grapevine veers away from the adultery theme in his recent dramas and is touted as a black comedy take on teen pregnancy set within an old-school image driven chaebol family. Starring Yoo Joon Sang, Yoo Ho Jung, Lee Joon, and Go Ah Sung, this drama is clearly cast for substance over style and I couldn’t be happier. Heard it Through the Grapevine takes over for Punch on SBS Mon-Tues and is slated for a 32-episode run. Punch is currently the ratings leader and clearly the audience is open to darker more serious dramas so Grapevine has a shot when it premieres on Feb 23rd.
First teaser for Heard it Through the Grapevine:
I remember Go Ah Sung role in God of Study. She was ugly, but lovely and innocent. I’m surprise with that ‘hard’ kiss in the teaser.
OMG “she was ugly” sorry but you just make me laugh
and that’s what you call puberty.. lolol
My most anticipated drama! This looks promising. Can’t wait for Lee Joon and Go Ah Sung! 🙂
Am I going to want to give up my sleep and recap?
Not sure if I want it to be that good, or not!
Dang. I might yet come back to k-dramas…
Whooaa I’m definitely watching this! Healer is gonna end soon so this is just the right time. Oh great!
Yosh, this looks good. I will definitely watch this. GAS is a very talented young actress, she was awesome in Snowpiercer (well everyone one was, Swinton especially)
