You’ll have to wait an extra week to catch the upcoming SBS drama Bulhandang (or also called Robbers; it’s still listed as the drama’s working title, so the title may change again) starring Jang Hyuk and Lee Da Hae. It’s been pushed back due to the postponement of the finale for the drama in its current timeslot, Lobbyist, and will now premiere on January 2.
(I’ve seen the series go by the title Robbers more commonly, but I’m not sure that he IS a robber, technically. I prefer the term “con man,” but when the series gets its official website and title up, I’ll revisit.)
Gasp. That means the Wednesday-Thursday series is in direct competition with Hong Gil Dong! Aish. (Actually, it’s no contest for me; fusion dramedy series Hong Gil Dong wins hands down, but I’ll still be keeping an eye on Bulhandang).
The series features Jang Hyuk as a scoundrel-y type who extorts money from women. Lee Da Hae is a widow living with her five-year-old daughter (so she had the kid when she was a minor, or are we supposed to believe she’s “mature” beyond her years?) and taking care of her mother-in-law. (If they make her angelic and self-sacrificing, I’m gonna puke.)
Other actors include Kim Jung Tae, Hong Kyung In, and Ma Dong Seok.
