Choi Jung-won in Wish Upon a Star

No surprise to see more promotional stills and reports out about another new show; this time it’s SBS’s trendy drama Wish Upon a Star (which I previously referred to as Pick the Stars; I’m glad SBS Global came up with a better-sounding English title for the drama).

The 20-episode romantic comedy shows a complete different side to its lead star Choi Jung-won, who has previously been known for her composed and feminine image. As you can see from the above still, her Jin Pal-gang character gets into her share of sticky situations.

Choi’s character Pal-gang has worked at an insurance firm for five years, but she spends more than she makes and has racked up credit card debt. Loud-mouthed and rash, she has a pretty immature personality despite her 25 years of age and her life’s greatest goal is to find a handsome, perfect man and live in married bliss.

The name Pal-gang, as I mentioned before, means “deep red,” and each of her siblings also is named after a color (Ju-hwang = orange, No-rang = yellow, Cho-rok = green, Pa-rang = blue). Pal-gang unexpectedly becomes their caretaker upon the sudden death of her parents. (It’s noted that Pal-gang isn’t related to them by blood; her parents had adopted them.) Also starring in the drama are are Kim Ji-hoon as a lawyer who doesn’t believe in love and Shin Dong-wook.

Wish Upon a Star premieres tomorrow, January 4 (but will air at 9pm and therefore doesn’t have to worry about drama competition).

I agree with Samsooki, very pretty!

I really hope this does well enough to have other stations consider going this way too.

I hope Kim Ji Hoon is more believable and fluid in this series.....I gotta say he was really wooden in his performance in Love & Marriage

sigh, why do all rom-coms have to have that seemingly-cold character (usually male) that doesn't believe in love but softens up once he falls in love, blah blah blah.
i'd like to see a rom-com drama with a completely original, but still believable, storyline and cast of characters.

I'm not loving the debt plot line as well as the main female being immature for her age. Those are two characteristics of many that I tend to find in dramas I don't like. I can't stand the whole "main female is immature, loud, rash, etc". I've stopped watching so many dramas because the main female tended to blow things out of proportion and act loud and be annoying.

And I was looking forward to this drama too. Now I'm not so sure. :(

@unny - I thought Kim Ji Hoon was just perfect!! He was human.. and IMO not cold.. just the silent type! I LOVED him as Park Hyun Soo..

Uh...Too bad KJH is the lead and not SDW. I think this role will be too similar to Love & Marriage 'cold lawyer', I would rather see SDW taking on that character!

CJW looks like Snow White in these pics, haha :D

Those poor children. How can parents get away with naming their kids weird names? Adopt 5 children and name them colors of the rainbow? I would sue.

This is exactly what I need right now :)

I finished watching Queen Seon Deok and IRIS around the same time and both have unnecessarily tragic endings. I was so depressed and suicidal ( I literally bang my head against the wall and groaning AAAARRRRGH!!! not again....)

I need a too-sugary-no-nutrition drama like this to keep me from slitting my wrists and Kim Ji Hoon is always pleasant to look at as long as they get rid of the long hair (I don't think anyone will ever take a lawyer seriously when he's sporting a boy band hair do). I hope the writers don't go overboard with the loud-mouthed heroine, I almost threw my TV with an ashtray every time Go Hye Sun talked in a shrieking tone in BoF.

Can't wait to watch the show :)

Awwww... no fair!
I was desperately hoping to see Shin Dong-wook again, but in a leading role!
(Hopefully, soon!)
The drama itself sounds fun and totally my cup of tea, it's just the thought of my love playing a tragically dumped second-lead or worse, someone of no particular importance.
What a way to make a comeback, how long has it been since Soulmate now?
I mean, why come back at all, damn you!?!

^ nope. the storyline is completely different.. and atashinchi no danshi is not even a good drama to remake, imo.
@Reese, agree. thats why i cant stand many top drama, like: my girl, dgch, etc.. but its in fashion now.

I just happens to watch the last episode of stars falling fron the sky and I am a little bit sad since it is the last series.I have a high regardsd for all the characters
performaces, they absolutely give justice to their own parts of this drama.The only thing I am not contented is that they did not end the way most of us are expecting the two main character to be in their wedding gown . Hopefullly the PD will considered having a season 2 for this wonderful and exciting adventures of Pal Kang and Kang Ho as the face the new additional members of the rainbow family. I am curious how they will have their own baby if they have Nami and Bori to take care of ? It would be hilarious how the household go be like.........But anyway I have fun watching this drama Thanks to the wonderful people who makes this possible for us. It's entertainng and funny........
