Love and loss
Running time: 16 episodes x 60 minutes THERE are three things I absolutely love about this stylish drama: the outfits, the food and the electronic gizmos.
At every change of scene, there’s an impeccably dressed couple, a beautifully arranged platter, or a cute and useful electrical appliance lying around.
The way they all come together is ingenious. Lee Seo-jung (E) is a young and upcoming writer who works for a beautiful but mean editor Park Ki-ja (Kim) at Style magazine, one of the top fashion magazines in South Korea.
Although Park gives Lee a hard time as she feels threatened, she keeps Lee on the team as she appreciates her passion for the job. But when Park’s ex-boyfriend, Seo Woo-jin (Ryu) comes back to town, Lee finds herself in a tight spot as Woo-jin (who is also a chef and heir to Style) appears to favour her over Park.
Luckily for Lee, photographer Kim Min-joon (Lee) is there to support her while she struggles with the competition and rivalry in the fashion world.
Pretty things aside, this drama also has some interesting turns of events. So, I’d say, thumbs up for this movie!
This drama is in Korean with English, Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia subtitles. The series currently airs on 8TV on weekdays at 8.30pm. –LimWeyWen Cast: Show Lo, Rainie Yang and Lee Wei Running time: 23 episodes x 60 minutes IT has been a long time since I’ve watched a Rainie Yang drama, but Hi My Sweetheart has proven that the cute singer and talk show host is capable of acting, too.
In this series, Yang plays Chen Bao Zhu, a university senior with a strong but kind personality who often stands up for students who are bullied at the university.
So, when Lin Da Lang (Show), a nerdy boy who shows up at the university looking like he just got off the time machine from the 1960s, it is natural for her to defend him from those who poke fun at him.
What Chen does not know is that Lin Da Lang is actually Xue Hai, who comes from a wealthy family. With time, Lin’s goofy and innocent ways win over Chen’s heart. But they break up when family problems and a misunderstanding crop up. Of course, that is not the end of the story.
As the drama is shot like a teenage love drama, there is a healthy dose of slapstick humour and funny twists. This Taiwanese production is in Mandarin with English, Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia subtitles. –LimWey Wen n The DVDs are distributed by PMP Entertainment.
