Posters and trailers for weekend drama Creating Destiny

Eugene‘s new drama Creating Destiny [인연만들기] comes out this weekend, and here are some posters and previews to give you an idea of what to expect. (The copy in the above poster reads, “Are we really meant to be?”)

The main storyline features Eugene and Ki Tae-young as a reluctant couple set up in an arranged marriage. The hitch? He’s utterly uninterested in marriage, and she’s intending to marry her Western boyfriend.

The drama is adapted from two novels by the scriptwriter Hyun Go-eun, which were combined to form the basis for this drama. This is the writer’s second time teaming up with PD Jang Geun-soo; the duo were behind the popular 2003 series 1% of Anything.

Eugene has been active with her acting career in the past year, with a horror film out this summer (Yoga School) and a drama last year (Three Dads, One Mom). Ki Tae-young acted in dramas White Tower and Mom’s Dead Upset and, most recently, Terroir. Ki explained how it felt taking on his first drama leading role as a clean-freak doctor: “Rather than feeling pressure at having a lead role, I feel more responsibility. I had offers for some other projects, but I felt a desire to take on the bright drama Creating Destiny. Rather than changing my image, I wanted to take on a comfortable drama.”

Airing on MBC in the earlier prime-time hour, Creating Destiny is a family/romance drama that, despite the description, seems from the trailers to have a fair amount of melodrama sprinkled within. (It feels less like Sol Pharmacy and more like traditional family/daily drama stuff, actually. Unfortunately that makes it less interesting to me, and although I think Eugene is adorable, I think she’s more engaging playing offbeat or strong characters; as a heroine of a straight romance, she comes off kind of bland.)

Creating Destiny premieres on Saturday, October 10.

I like Eugene so I'm willing to give it a try. Just hope it doesn't turn out to be like Take Care of the Lady/ My Fair Lady ( I watched because I'm a fan of Yoon Eun Hye but I'm disappointed : ( not with her but the story)

oooh! I love the way they did the eye make up on Eugene especially the fake lashes. She looks good. I am desperate for a romantic kdrama and this looks promising. All I ask is for chemistry between the leads. That's all I ask. Please!

I like Eugene too - though she's never really stunned me with her acting, she has a very wholesome likeability to her. Agree with #2 balletbabeana tho, don't want another MFL.

I'm strangely excited for this. Strange because I'm not a huge Eugene fan. I find her adorable and cute but that's about it. And the storyline is strangely . . . plain. It's just strange.

I think it's mainly because Eugene speaks English well and she's supposed to be speaking English in this drama and I have this strange and intense desire to listen to Korean/Japanese/Taiwanese actors speak English.

Maybe it'll be like Brilliant Legacy, which I started watching out of mild curiosity and then grew intensely addicted to it.

Ha, Mishane, I was hoping the same as you.

The previews are just strange. From the posters I thought it was going to be bubbly and cute, but the previews are kind of heavy. Does there always need to be such serious drama concerning marriage? Why can't it be funny and cute drama? Like her western boyfriend not knowing Korean? That could be cute. : P

I'm going to watch anyways, but we'll see.

Ah, it's Halmoni AND Gyo-bin! Together in one drama, it's like multi-verses collapsing together.

Eugene's rom-com dramedies are usually easy-going cheerful with a dash of light angst fare. This looks cute and has a nice coupling of the leads. I'll definite watch this when its done, but won't follow along - since I'm saving real time watching induced mental anguish for IRIS and You're Beautiful (I give thee back thou realest name).

That poster reminds me extremely of this....

Not to say there is any copying going on. The plots seem to be totally different (and in fact, the Korean one looks better), but maybe they need new ideas in terms of advertising...

Seeing the previews, I'm not so much excited anymore...

@ gallivanter : I agree with you.

I suppose by "family/romance", it's one of those dramas like Happiness, Aeja's sister Minja, etc. Those kind of dramas... family type dramas that my mom loves >.<

I think my mom might like this drama more than me~ But that means more dramas for us to watch together~

Is it just me or have recent drama been sorta anti-westerners lately? it's says she has a "Western boyfriend" and the way Tamna the Island ended, i feel an subtle pro Asian/anti western vibe. IDK, maybe it's just me.

@16 sellymoo
OMG you stole my line! ^^

IDK, I strangely feel...nothing about this drama. It's supposed to hit my buttons (cold-hearted guy who's also a clean-freak? Check! Arranged marriage? Check!), but hm, I'm not feeling anything. Then again, I might end up giving it a try as the cast is cute and seems to have some kind of chemistry.

It's pretty hard finding chemistry in korean drama...mostly,I only feel "love" from the actors but not from the actress...but I found the chemistry between YEH n GY in Coffee Prince, I hope I can see that chemistry in other korean drama

Wow, it DOES look a bit more melodramatic than you would expect from all the posters and short synopses that have popped up so far. I thought it would be pretty bubbly. Then again, Family's Honor was pretty melodramatic in parts and yet another 50 episode family/romance drama, but I ended up really liking it, so who knows, I might like this one too! Eugene and Ki Tae Young look adorable together, so I'll probably give this a try. I do hope the writer/director duo will do better, though. Particularly the writer. I found 1% of Anything an absolute pain and never managed to get past episode 5.

50 episodes is definitely too long unless it's really good.

@mishane
I too have this strange interest in korean/japanese/taiwanese actors speaking English so might check out the first few episodes to see how it goes.

something about Eugene annoys the heck outta me....maybe that's why I haven't seen any of her dramas or movies....nonetheless, I may just check this one out....out of curiosity ofcourse

I am actually watching Smile, You with Lee Min Jung during the weekends and loving it. I am a bit daunted by the 50 episodes just like everyone else, but it is engaging and fun.
2 Weekend Drama, both 50 episodes....I guess I've already picked my choice so it looks like I'll be giving Creating Destiny a miss.

I'm really enjoying Creating Destiny. I like Eugene & Ki. They look good together on-screen. They seem to have fallen in love with each other & the relationship is so heartwarming.
I like Eugene's acting because she doesn't overact. I enjoyed all her dramas.

I have been following this drama and i must say, i never really took a liking to eugene until this kdrama. First of all, call me shallow but I do like the fact that Eugene can actually speak English which doesn't make me cringe. Ki Tae Young, not so much. But he is cute and his acting is quite all right :)

This drama seemed fluffy but not so much anymore. The plot seems to be developing well and I quite like the fact that the characters don't give me a headache with their inability to convey their feelings. I would recommend it for those who are looking for a fun drama without heavy doses of angst and pain.

omg ever since this drama i grew to love ki tae young, and im not much of a eugene fan but i do like her dramas like wonderful life, save the last dance for me, etc. but anyways i've been following this drama and at first i didnt think it'd be addicting but i was so wrong im totally hooked TT-TT and im unusually like this to SUPER LONG dramas...i've never bothered watching them actually until now xD...im always too lazyyyy i prefer 16 ep ones cuz more is just too long for me...i start them but never finish and start another...its hard for me to get hooked haha...but fiftyyyy??!?!?!?! darn...i thought it was only 37...o-o i hope they don't edn up at the very very end tho cuz then that'd be dissapointing....i want them to end up somewhere in the middle or at least not too close to the ending...omg the only thing that annoys me is that ex-man of yunhee, the gullible/naive mother, and of course last but not least the most annoying character hye rim...*god do i just wanna sock my foot in her mouth* haha :D

I totally agree with kitaeyoung. I started to love Ki tae young after this drama and went on the web to search info about him. (not much though). It is a romantic drama and I like the two leading characters, they totally look cute together...I find the drama is kind of too lengthy especially after episode 23, I just had to hit fast forward whenever it gets bored. But I watched every minitue of Eugene & Ki Tae Young...hahha..can't help it...also, love to hear Eugene speaks English without any accent..

At first, I watched this drama because of Eugene, later on without I am expected I fall in love with Ki Tae Young too!! Love Eugene and Ki Tae Young chemistry ^^
The drama is kindda draggy at the end..hmm yeah at some point it makes me want to fast forward LOL because i just want to see Eugene and Ki Tae Young parts hahaha.....they are so sweet ^^ and they are quite close off screen. Even Chinese fans create special website dedicated for Eugene and Ki Tae Young couple lovers ^^

I have watched Ki Tae Young in Terroir but in my opinion his style in Creating Destiny is the best until now. It suits him and made him younger.

Hope will see more dramas from Eugene and Ki Tae Young

I started watching this drama because I was curious to find out why Eugene got married to Ki Tae Young. I loved Eugene in Save Your Last Dace and her chemistry with Ji Sung. But after watching up to the 12th episode I've fallen for KTY, LOL he is so cute and such a good actor. No wonder Eugene fall in love with him. So happy that they ended up for real. Congratulations and I wish for them a long life together. Now I'm not only a fan of Eugene but I also become a fan of KTY.

Wow. Its been like 3 years the last comment.

But anyway, before I picked Creating Destiny I was having a hard time getting over Chorim and Mugak (The Girl Who Sees Smells). I searched and looked for dramas with couples with sizzling and adorable chemistry and after 3 days of dropping various dramas after the first episodes I found Creating Destiny and thank God I did. There were many times where I found myself screaming my head off because of how annoying some of the characters were (Hye Rim and Yeo Jun's mom) but I sticked around because of how adorable Yeo Jun and Sang Eun were. Ohhh and also becauae of the interactions between Sang Eun's family. I wouldn't really recommend CD because the story got draggy and finishing it could be quite a task. But Yeo Jun and Sang Eun were sizzling here. No wonder they married each other. Will follow Ki Tae Young from now on.
