Ryu Jin’s Thousand Kisses
A Thousand Kisses for Ryu Jin? Yes, please. Hopefully with me involved somehow.
Too bad we’re just talking about a drama title, which will take up a weekend slot on MBC come August. And I fear that we’re looking at another second-lead role for Ryu Jin, which is great from a drama’s point of view since he’s so good at it, but sucky for those of us who want him to end up happy and not alone. (He’s currently being alternately adorable and swoony in Baby-Faced Beauty, where he’s the quiet, gentle, but stern boss who’s a single divorced dad to a kid who adores the woman he won’t win, Jang Nara. You’d feel worse about that if Daniel Choi weren’t so devotedly sweet.)
A Thousand Kisses is a drama about a woman who divorces (Seo Young-hee of Bedevilled) and faces all kinds of hardships on her way to success…which sounds an awful lot like that other upcoming weekend drama, Hooray For Love, which briefly starred Jae Hee before he dropped out due to injury.
Ji Hyun-woo plays the other male lead, and it seems like he’s in for another noona romance (Birth of the Rich, My Sweet Seoul). I suppose when you have an adorable puppy-dog face and demeanor, it’s what works for you.
A Thousand Kisses will replace All That Glitters (aka Twinkle Twinkle) on Saturdays and Sundays.
