Han Hyo-joo’s internet drama Soul Special
Han Hyo-joo, who has just come off her SBS hit drama Brilliant Legacy at a career high, has a new project which takes the rather unique format of an “Internet drama.” Called Soul Special [쏘울 스페셜], it co-stars actor Kim Dong-wook (Partner) as her love interest.
(Hm, another web series. And this comes so soon after the other one, SETI, was announced starring Seo Hyo-rim and Kim Kyu-jong.)
Parts 1 and 2 were released this past week, which you can watch below.
Han Hyo-joo plays a free-spirited singer-songwriter, while Kim Dong-wook is a doctor, although you don’t see that in the first clip. Lee Chae-young and singer K.Will also appear as a couple. The drama rather prominently features the Kia (ad money, no doubt), but the series has a very cute vibe.
Here’s Part 1: “One Day, Something Special For You…”
Here, Han Hyo-joo returns to Korea from studying abroad, stumbles across Kim Dong-wook in the airport parking lot, and wonders jokingly, “Are you my welcome-home present?” She gets into the Kia (arranged by her unni) and checks into a hotel (arranged by a friend).
Her last line is: “Will you marry me?”
Next is Part 2: “Solo Woman, Find Loneliness”
The web series is 1 hour long in total, divided into 12 episodes at 5 minutes each. Its first two episodes were released this past week, and will continue to release two episodes per week (every Tuesday and Thursday) online. Afterward, it will be released to cable television and as mobile content.
