Discovery of Love Releases Funny and Engaging Long Preview at Drama Press Conference

You would think with a string of disappointing Mon-Tues K-dramas from KBS I would be supremely reluctant to get excited about the upcoming Discovery of Love. It follows the disaster that was Lovers of Music (Trot Lovers), memorable only for Jung Eun Ji and some snappy trot covers, but it also comes from the production team with a track history in doing pretty well with modern adult rom-coms. The I Need Romance team wraps up three cable dramas and moves over to prime time with a solid cast consisting of Eric, Jung Yumi, Sung Joon, Yoon Jin Yi, Yoon Hyun Min, and Kim Seul Gi. I loved the creative and lovely dramas posters, the cheeky character stills, and lots and lots of bright color everywhere in the teasers and snippets released so far. I want happy and funny and this drama appears to promise that. Whether it actually delivers, and then delivers all the way until the end, remains to be seen.

The cast gathered for the press conference this week and the two male leads appear to be wearing pretty much the same dark suit. All the harder for leading lady Jung Yumi to pick between smoldering Eric or sensitive Sung Joon. The story centers around Jung Yumi’s Han Yeo Reum who is in her second year of dating her plastic surgeon hottie boyfriend Na Ha Jin played by Sung Joon. Ha Jin is close to proposing but has to satisfy an obligatory parental matseon date so Yeo Reum tracks him to the hotel lobby where she encounters ex-boyfriend Kang Tae Ha who she dated for 5 years and it’s also been 5 years since she broke up with him. Both exes are clearly affected by running into each other and what follows is a complicated discovery of love. The long preview below is too good not to sure but luckily the drama premieres in a short three days next Monday. Yay! *gimme gimme gimme* Continue reading
