I’m wondering if audiences of old school Hallyu dramas will get whiplash if they were to check out Choi Ji Woo is upcoming tvN drama Second Time Twenty Years Old? She was best known for Winter Sonata, Beautiful Days, and Stairway to Heaven, all stupidly plotted addicting melo fests, yet she’s come so far now to break free from her queen of tears moniker and show off her bright and bubbly side which I’ve come to love. It really does reflect her real life personality as seen on variety shows like Grandpas Over Flowers.
While Choi Ji Woo is the titular lead of the drama, going back to being twenty years old not literally through time travel or body swapping but instead just going back to college as a freshman, she’s got two solid male leads in Lee Sang Yoon and Choi Won Young to further showcase her sassy and derpy side. Case in point, the two new drama teasers with the male leads had me in stitches it was so funny. In one Choi Won Young as the hubby angrily blows his lid when he finds out his wife is a student at the college where he teaches, and in the other Lee Sang Yoon’s nostalgic voiceover about his first love is cross-cut with clueless Choi Ji Woo trying to get his attention. So funny!
Guy teasers for Second Time Twenty Years Old:
Lee Sang Yoon!!! i haven’t seen him since Liar Game…his look is almost similar to his Ha Woo Jin look…<3!!!
So she is married to someone in the same university? and she is also lee sang yoon first love who also works in the university\or a student?
Her husband divorces her. Then she decides to go back to uni and live that part of life she skipped because she was busy being a young mom.
It just happened that the uni she enrolls in is where her ex-hubby and first love work.
(This is what I read from other blog posts)
ahh, well this is so much better than what I first thought.
So tats where LJY from I Remember You disappeared to! Lol. Will need to get used to seeing him change from a psychotic role to a funny one.
Haha… Its weird isnt it? Its like LJY in an alter world. Probably ji-an’s fantasy.
The dramatic BGM+Choi Ji Woo peering inside Lee Sang Yoon’s car was hilarious!!! I’m so checking this out
Hehe, looking forward to it.
I can’t wait. Nothing to watch right now!!!
The teasers are so funny and she is just Adorable!
thank you for the nice write-up.
I am definitely checking this out. It looks marvellous. Kind of very sad that Oh My Ghostess is ending very soon though …
Nice one.. Looking forward to it. The actor playing her ex in this drama is all over the supporting roles. He was the helpful secretary in Kill me Heal me and the psycho in Hello Nonster.
Choi ji woo looks like the same in Winter Sonata’s high school character. She aged gracefully and looks young. I like her very much and finally she gets role that fits her personality
PLEASE – How many more middle-aged actresses are they going to give us going back to college! ENOUGH already. Did this production team has not heard that it has been done many times before? BORING…..
Actually, I’d be interested in some of these shows because I don’t know of any or maybe only one. List, please?
looks promising enough… think this post just makes me want to check it out right now… lol
twenty years again/second time years old would became my top k-drama 2015 and perhaps my best k-drama ever, really worth to watch. it made me cry and laugh and hearth-warming in the same time,it’s not ordinary romance-comedy typical story but merely can inspire your life though
