If Uncontrollably Fond harkens back to the early Hallyu style of melodrama, then tvN‘s Cinderella and Four Knights reminds of the mid-Hallyu male harem romance dramas such as Boys Before Flowers, You’re Beautiful, which even branched out to sageuks like Sungkyunkwan Scandal. I totally dig, it’s been awhile since there was a legit set up like this, though the drama is adapting from a same name manhwa and this construct remains super popular in the illustrated world of manhwa and mangas.
The shoujo girl in me is forever throwing rose petals and open to throwing practicality to the wind and reveling in the world where four gorgeous rich men all fall for one ordinary girl. Starring Jung Il Woo, Park So Dam, Ahn Jae Hyun, Lee Jung Shin, Choi Min, and Son Na Eun, the first official drama poster pulls no punches in arraying the rich hotties around their poor maid Park So Dam, who we know will end up making them all turn putty in her hands.
Teaser for Cinderella and Four Knights:
I would say Doctors is also a reversed Harem ;).
I’m actually excited for this LOL even though it looks like it’s going to be super cheesy xD
I like Park So Dam but I’m not really interested in this drama. I sounds boring.
Off-topic: does anybody watch Let’s Fight, Ghost? It’s quite funny.
*it sounds boring
Let’s fight ghost is quite boring .
Nice! Since more than two ppl mentioned Let’s fight, Ghost and Koala is currently watching it, I’ll check this one out as a filler while I wait for new episodes of Beautiful Mind. Hopefully it’s not getting hopelessly dragging as Another Oh Hae Young. LOL
I’m watching Beautiful Mind too! Isn’t it wonderful?
Let’s fight, Ghost in my opinion is very entertaining. I laughed a lot and Kim So Hyun is simply the cutest.
@Jenga. BM is better than I expected. The best dramas I’m currently watching now.
not a fan of JIW’s fringe but totally looking forward for this. I need this kind of movie now
Ockoala recommended one Jdorama which had this sort of set up a few years ago. I totally didn’t dig it. Hopefully this will be better so it will erase my memory of that one. That was one weird, super weird JD.
So far Park So Dam isnt that engaging in Beautiful Minds. Jang Hyuk seems to be the one holding the fort. Dunno if its cause of the character. Jung il woo looks better in other dramas. The hair looks weird. But it looks an easy watchable rom com
She’s been looking better and better since the writer got smart to get rid of her dimwitted character from the first couple of episodes. She’s a decent actress. I like her acting that looks natural and not forced.
So like BOF? Chaebol again? Nahhhh….Skip!
Another BOF or Heirs? Out of date story… but I think this drama suit for teenagers. Jung Ill Woo is a good actor, dunno why he take this childish project 🙁
meh… looks like i’ll be skipping this one too. the last project of JIW I could finish was MoonSun. he needs a project with Healer writer of YWCFTS writer, or the writer of 6FDs. they write better male lead characters with wild range.
Im sad that people hating PSD too much for Beautiful Mind, first time watching her in it, I feel she’s an actor, don’t know how to describe but it’s a bit more up level, the way she locked eyes every time with JangHyuk full of emotions one can feel. I’m worried with all this hate might affect this one? Sad sad.
I will check this out.
We have not had enough Park So Dam brainwashing lately.
