Kwon Sang-woo and Su Ae back to dramaland?

There’s a new drama pairing afoot: Kwon Sang-woo (Pain, Daemul) and Su Ae (Thousand Day Promise) are in talks to possibly star in the new manhwa-to-drama adaptation from Daemul writer Park In-kwon. This series is called Yawang or Queen of Ambition, which is a best approximation in translating the title, a play on “queen” and “ambition.”

It’s about a woman who’s so dirt-poor that she doesn’t even have the means to properly bury her mother, but she pulls herself out of poverty and starts to dream big, deciding one day that she’s going to become the First Lady. The character is described as chock-full of ambition, a woman who will use any means to get what she wants. She sounds as scary as she is impressive. The story isn’t surprising, coming from the creator of Daemul, about the first female president of Korea.

The hero is a nice guy, an innocent man who loves the heroine and will do anything for her. Anything like become the president? Or anything like get his nice guy bum trampled on, while she marries the guy who’s going to be the president? There are two VERY different ways this could go for you, Mr. Nice Guy.

The drama is being produced by Verdi Media, and the screenplay will be adapted by writer Choi Ran (of Iljimae, the Lee Jun-ki version). Yawang hopes to broadcast later this year, and meanwhile Su Ae will be shooting her film with Jang Hyuk, and Kwon Sang-woo his film with Jackie Chan. Busy busy.

i love su ae! it'd be nice to see her in a comedy, but with the writer of Daemul, maybe not. Kwon Sang Woo is doing another drama by the Daemul writer? D

Now this I'm really excited about watching! Hopefully the pairing won't change - sometimes these dramas morph into something completely different before they are released.

First Gong Yoo, now these two - no chance of beating this addiction any time soon!

Not to be a killjoy but doesn't the premise remind anyone of a slightly more cheery version of Lee Da Hae's Miss Ripley character?

I think at least 50% of the female leads in dramas are some variation of the dirt-poor, hardworking and ambitious girl/woman!

OMG! I definitely DEFINITELY approve of this pairing! Finally, someone in Kdrama entertainment world is using their brains in pairings. Now, we just need to hope for the best with the storyline... Daemul was okay.

I'm still awaiting Kwon Sang Woo & Son Ye Jin!

I watched Kwan Sang Woo's movie Pain and had KSW withdrawals. I am not so sure he will do the show though. He seems to be more interested in the international moviestar market at the moment.

Kwon Sang Woo was the first Korean actor whose face I was able to distinguish among all other alike looking actors (although it took me some time to achieve even that) and whose name I memorized. I don't think he's really really great, but he's not a bad actor either, he can give his characters intensity and credibility.
As for Su Ae - she IS really really great :)
This will be a good drama if the writer doesn't go for one-dimensional and typical characters like over-ambitious b*tch without any conscience and feelings or a doormat guy who only loves his heroine and has no other traits than that, which by the way is qiute tempting if you want emotional reactions from the viewers (you know, to get the entire ajummahood of the land to swoon over the poor guy and hate the bad woman).

My love, Soo Ae!!! Finally, a drama! And with Kwon Sang Woo as her loverboy. And here I am, beginning to worry that we may not get to see her on the small screen this year. Come on Soo Ae, show em' some A-Class acting!=)

I'm surprised since it hasn't been long since her last drama, in fact it is so recent. But if it's Soo Ae it's worth a first watch.

I don't want a Daemul 2 lol.
One Daemul is enough (I liked it but... Not a second time please).
Good to see some stars back... I will probably try this!

The story is very similar to a telenovela from Chile "Primera dama" or First Lady.
