Name That Drama: Uggs, bar dancing, handymen

  1. Althea asks:

    I was hoping if you and the rest of the beanies out there could help me find out about this drama that I can’t seem to pinpoint the title.

    I saw this dubbed Korean drama in a local television channel, I think it was set around the early 2000s. It was about this woman who left her to go abroad (to study, I think). From the scene that I watched, it turns out the woman sired a son without the guy knowing and they meet a few years later.

    There was also this scene where the woman’s son was hospitalized and her best friend asked the woman whether it was time to tell the guy about their son. The woman refused saying that she didn’t want to interfere with the guy’s life especially since he was already engaged to another woman (chaebol, by the looks of it). I know the plot is kind of generic but that was all that I could remember from that drama.


  2. Cassie’s drama is rather old but has a few key clues:

    All I remember of this drama is that when the OTP kissed for the first time, they were drunk off their faces. So drunk that when he kissed her, they fell right off their stools and onto the floor together. And then he reached over to kiss her some more, but before he could actually do it, they both passed out. (I’ve seen the actor in a Dramabeans header nuzzling another actress in black, but no ID on him.)

    If it helps, this looks like an early 2000s drama – the heroine wears Uggs. I think a bit of it was also filmed abroad, and that’s where they first meet.

    Oh, and the hero has a terminal illness of the brain.


  3. If Ashley’s asking about a drama scene, then I have an idea. If it’s a movie, nope, nuthin’.

    I’m pretty sure this is a Korean movie. It’s about a famous musician who falls apart when his wife dies because she did everything for him so she possesses someone to come back and help him prepare for a concert. He plans to run away with her possessing the other person’s body but she slaps him and tells him to get his life together without her, haha.


  4. Roggy asks:

    I the photo on Facebook. There was a guy (in the comments it said that it was Changmin Oppa?) carrying a girl on his back. The girl said: “What if I get too fat and you can’t carry me?” And the boy replied with: “Then I’ll get just as fat and we can roll around together.” It seemed soo cute that I wanted to watch it, but even after reading through hundreds of comments I didn’t find the name of the drama.


  5. Mia’s drama sounds pretty hilarious:

    I watched this movie in DVD about four or five years ago so I guess it must have been out around that time or earlier. The leading lady loves dating with rich and hot guys. One day she meets our leading man and decides to make him her target so she starts using some tricks to seduce him. Then it turns out the leading man is also a playboy so they keep seducing each other, u know, just like a competition and it’s hilarious. At the end, they meet again, smile at each other and walk on the same road. I’m pretty sure the movie involves some bar dancing scenes and plane and salon or it’s just my vague memory.


  6. Lavender’s story sounds familiar, but I can’t quite place all the pieces into the same drama:

    Hey! the drama (could be a movie) is about a rich girl and a poor guy. I can’t really remember how they meet but it wasn’t during the best circumstances (surprise surprise). He is a handyman of some sorts, working for a construction company, which may have been the girl’s father’s company. They get together after a while but the twist is that the girl is sick making her forget things like leaving the stove on and stuff like that. It’s not Thousand Days Promise!

    I’m absolutely positive that no. 6 is the film “A Moment to Remember” starring Jung Woo Sung and Son Ye Jin. 🙂

    • 1.1 Honeymylovesosweet

      I thought it would be Art Of Seduction with Song Il Kook

    • 1.2 Honeymylovesosweet

      aw sorry I thought it was 5. My bad. Think you’re right about 6 and 5 my guess was above

    • 1.3 maldita

      That movie never ever fails to make me cry. It’s always a cathartic experience watching it.

    • 1.4 Reena

      hahaha I agree! no. 6 A Moment to Remember is the only one that I can easily recognize (watched it a few times and cried a few times lol).

      Son Ye Jin is amazing! I love her in The Classic too… the story is almost the same as Love Rain.

      • 1.4.1 Bengbeng

        wouldn’t you know it?! both No. 5 and 6 stars Son Ye Jin. Such great actress =)

    • 1.5 CeeCee

      #5 is Art of Seduction. #6 is Moment to Remember, my first Korean movie that got me hooked on K-dramas!

  2. Miky

    1 story isin’t perhaps Sorry, I Love You with SO JI Sub?

    • 2.1 Miky

      sorry i mean second story,my bad

    • 2.2 Cassie

      Thank you so much (and to everyone else who answered mine) – it was I’m Sorry I Love You! And So Ji Sub is the guy I saw in the header, he looked really hot there.

  3. Autumn

    I think #4 is a Banjun Drama starring Changmin from TVXQ. It has been almost a decade since I last watched it so I’m not too sure.

    • 3.1 utopious

      It is with Chang Min and all other TVXQ members, called Unforgettable Love 🙂

      • 3.1.1 CFLH

        changmin’s story was the best! lol…

    • 3.2 maldita

      LOL the Banjun Dramas will forever hold a special place in my heart, cringe-worthy acting and all.

      And yes, it was specifically the “Unforgettable Love” episode where Yunho was off on a date and the others stay home and talk about their unforgettable ex-girlfriends.

      • 3.2.1 aramint

        same here! Banjun Dramas will always hold a special place in my heart. and where my Yunjae addiction started too. the BTS clips are even more hillarious. lol

        • nomad

          Thank you for talking about this, just watched that episode of unforgettable love, hilarious!! *even with the cringe worthy acting, it just adds to its charm*

      • 3.2.2 hanie

        gosh… the acting~ LOL
        And yes, Banjun Dramas are forever special to us, fans.
        My favorite are Dangerous Love & Unforgettable Love.

      • 3.2.3 goldeng

        the one with Jaejoong and her psychic girlfriend that ended up struck by lightning made me rofl! He was all serious talking and I was lmao!

    • 3.3 aweebit

      Sorry but what is a “Banjun Drama”? It’s the first time I’ve heard the term.

      • 3.3.1 shinchae

        It’s a drama that has a twist at the end.

    • 3.4 Christina

      I’ve been wondering what drama that picture is from. Never occurred to me to ask here. Yay, now I know.

    • 3.5 Roggy

      Thank you!!!! So excited to finally watch it

      • 3.5.1 Kim

        I think it’ll end up with you in tears about how it’s no longer DB5K 🙁

  4. BrandyMarie

    I’m wondering if the first one isn’t Only You, with Han Chae-young. I’ve yet to watch it, but it sure seems similar.

    The second one sounds like I’m Sorry, I Love You, but I could be wrong.

    The fifth one matches the summary of The Art of Seduction, but I’ve never seen it so I can’t be sure.

    The last one might be A Moment To Remember, with Son Ye-jin and Jung Woo-sung.

    • 4.1 mary

      You’re right.

      #5 is Art of Seduction

  5. utopious

    Agree No 1 is A Moment to Remember

    No. 5 is most probably Art of Seduction with Son Ye Jin and Song Il Gook 🙂

    • 5.1 utopious

      I meant No 6 is A Moment to Remember keke

  6. Miky

    3. for sure is the episode from Master’s Sun….and 1 could it be maybe Only You with Han Chae-Young…

    • 6.1 Minitwin

      Yeah I read that one and almost swore it was masters sun…but they said it was a movie…

    • 6.2 petmink

      Definitely masters Sun. Unless they completely stole that scene from another movie.

  7. gekdy

    no. 2 I’m sorry, I love you
    no. 3 The master’s sun ??
    no. 5 The art of seduction
    no. 6 A moment to remember..

    I’m not sure about the others..

  8. bluesky

    I think..
    #1 – Only You
    #2 – Sorry I Love You
    #6 – A Moment To Remember

  9. madame kim

    5 is definitely Art of Seduction.

    Wonder if 2 isn’t Song Hyekyo’s drama Sunshine something..

    6 is A Moment to Remember

    • 9.1 D

      it’s nice of you to mention SHG’s Ray of Sunshine. i remember watching it just for her, LOL

  10. 10 lordj

    1. the plot is quite similar with taiwanese drama Autumn Concerto.

    3. im pretty sure its Master’s Sun (drama)

    5. The Art of Seduction

    • 10.1 Anduril

      That was my thought about number 1. Only she didn’t give birth abroad, but in the countryside.

  11. 11 kiddentist

    Isn’t no.1 thank you? I don’t remember clearly but I’m sure that the woman has the man’s child that the man know nothing about. It was a very heartwarming drama

    I’m sure no.6 is a moment to remember. That’s the one of my favourite k-movie!

    • 11.1 pogo

      I don’t think #1 is Thank You, she had a daughter there iirc.

  12. 12 klir

    No 3 must be Musters Sun.

    • 12.1 Seeshell

      lolllll…musters sun

  13. 13 King

    1. Only You
    2. MISA (Im sorry I Love You) – im sure of this 🙂
    3. Master’s Sun
    5. The Art of Seduction
    6. A Moment to Remember

    • 13.1 june_rain

      Agree. Wow first time im able to recall most of the dramas on the list.

  14. 14 CFLH

    4. DBSK’s banjun drama unforgettable love
    5. art of seduction
    6. a moment to remember

  15. 15 Chandler

    Number 3 definitely has to be an episode of Master’s Sun. It could have felt like a movie because it contained a complete story and episodes are an hour long.

  16. 16 mimosa

    1. Only You
    2. I’m sorry I love you
    3. Master’s Sun
    4. Sorry I have no idea 😀
    5. The Art of Seduction
    6. A Moment to Remember

  17. 17 Chandler

    Oooooo thank you Mia for bringing Number 5 into my life! I’ll be watching that promptly.

    • 17.1 Chandler

      And it has Son Ye-Jin in it!!!! Yay! I’m so excited!

    • 17.2 Rushie

      #5 has been on my to watch list for so long because of Song Il-gook whom I was in love with in A Man called God, but now that you mentioned Son Ye-jin, I have to go watch pronto.

  18. 18 ai

    2… I’m Sorry I Love You
    3… Master’s Sun

    5… Art of Seduction

  19. 19 Alixana

    4. DBSK’s Banjun drama – either “First love” or “Unforgettable love”, it’s very short, used to be all over youtube

    • 19.1 aweebit

      Just looked it up. . . What the lip gloss? ? ? ? ? Or did they all just finish sloppily drinking cherry kool-aid?

  20. 20 ColleenFH

    1. ?
    2. I’m Sorry, I Love You
    3. Master’s Sun
    4. Paradise Ranch
    5. The Art of Seduction
    6. A Moment To Remember

    I don’t think number 1 is Only You, I don’t remember her child being ill in that drama. As for number 4 I think this is the Paradise Ranch because I found the picture describes online.

  21. 21 tanya

    I’m pretty sure no. 3 is Master’s Sun.

  22. 22 ayay

    Number 3 definitely Master’s Sun. Number 5 Art Of Seduction. Number 6 A Moment To Remember.

  23. 23 tina

    #2 is maybe I’m Sorry, I Love You
    #3 is Master’s Sun

    both So Ji Sub ♥♥♥

  24. 24 mems

    No. 5 sounds most like The Art of Seduction. Fun movie!

  25. 25 Fab

    Art Of Seduction is really fun with great actors!

    Funny, 3 is exactly an episode of Mater’s Sun.

  26. 26 Jing

    #2 is I’m sorry I love you..so ji sub..

  27. 27 nomad

    #3, I”m pretty sure everybody already answered: master of the sun

    #6 A moment to remember (a movie), one of my favorite movies ever!

    aaa! can’t believe I could answer these thingsssss

  28. 28 coffeenlucia

    #2 is definitely I’m Sorry I love you. Im Soo Jung’s uggs were so cute!

  29. 29 snow

    3 is Master’s Sun and 5 is Art Of Seduction

    • 29.1 Lulubell

      That’s exactly what I thought for those two. Episode 9 for Master’s Sun I believe.

  30. 30 Miyaw

    i think #1 sender and I live in the same country. I’m pretty sure it’s Only You starring Han Chae Young.

    And loooll, I barely recognized that scene from #2 but the Uggs wearing lead girl clue made me think about I’m sorry, I love you. Uggs lmao.

  31. 31 pogo

    #3 is episode 9 of Master’s Sun, I very much doubt there could be another drama or movie with a scene that sounds so like it, haha.

  32. 32 Savanna

    Word for word, an episode of Master’s Sun for #3! The resemblance is uncanny!

    • 32.1 pogo

      haha yeah #3 it is totally Master’s Sun

      and as I refreshed the page to comment I got the So Ji-sub/Gong Hyo-jin header which has to be the header that Cassie refers to for #2. Just a nice little coincidence, lol.

  33. 33 lovedramas89

    #1. Wonderful life

    It’s stars Eugene and Kim Jae won who meets abroad and then she gets pregnant and later the child does get really ill.

    • 33.1 Kim Yoonmi

      But there isn’t the same sort of separation…, so it sounds a lot like Only You.

  34. 34 anklegirl

    I love how the description adds the hero’s terminal illness as a foot note…gotta love overused tropes.

    • 34.1 pogo

      haha yeah, that’s definitely MiSa. One of the better-done ‘hero has an illness and certain death ahead’ dramas I’ve seen, and some seriously good kissing (i.e. not dead fish)

  35. 35 Marie

    I have never known one of the answers and today I knew two of them! They were already answered but here are my guesses anyway.

    #3 Master’s Sun
    #5 Art of Seduction

  36. 36 Ria

    #3 is for sure Master’s Sun (just one episode in it)

  37. 37 Barbjean

    It’s interesting but #6 elements are similar to that of the drama Couple or Trouble with Oh Ji Ho and Han Ye Seul. Except the construction company wasn’t her father’s. But, she did have amnesia and left the oven on.

  38. 38 hanie

    My fangirl heart says that #4 is DBSK’s Banjun Drama. All of DBSK acted in that & all cringe worthy. LOL.
    That one is from unforgettable love episode. It was funny.
    brb, I need to rewatch dangerous love & unforgettable love~

  39. 39 consortoflight

    1. Only You
    2. I am Sorry I love You
    3. Master’s Sun
    5. Art of Seduction
    6. A Moment to Remember

    Side not can’t believe they’re making an American version of A Moment to Remember! Somehow I don’t think it will make me feels as much, hopefully….

  40. 40 ocean

    Agree with other beanies with the answers 🙂 This is the first time I know this many (at least am pretty confident in my answers), yay!

    1. Only you
    2. I’m sorry, I love you
    3. a scene from Master’s Sun
    4. *this is the only one I don’t know 🙁
    5. Art of Seduction
    6. Moment to Remember

  41. 41 Sajen

    #5) Art of Seduction with Son Ye-jin and Song Il-gook

  42. 42 Ora

    Mia’s drama sounds like Art of Seduction maybe, a Korean movie I watched few years back where they didn’t know each was a serial dater and they ended up on an island (forget its name…)


    2. snow white (could be wrong)
    3. Masters sun (definitely)
    4. Paradise Ranch (I’m pretty sure but i’ll probably have to re-watch it again)

  44. 44 pohonphee

    No. 1 is Thorn Bird with Joo Sang Wook in it but it was set around 2000s so it must not be it he he
    No. 2 is probably Sorry I Love You, that brain disease be damned
    No. 6 is A Moment to Remember

  45. 45 Kim Yoonmi

    1. Is Definitely Only You. She took forever to tell him she had a kid. And she was asked several times when she was going to ask. She also went abroad. There was less of an issue in Wonderful Life where it focused more on their family life. Also, the main character on that wasn’t there to study, but to go on vacation.

    2. I’m Sorry I Love You
    (Which I personally disliked since people felt compelled after that to argue to me how realistic is was about being adopted when they weren’t adopted themselves. *cough*) Double thumbs down from me for the ending.

    3. Pretty sure since I read all of the descriptions of the movies for the year 2013, and before that it’s not a movie but a Master’s Sun episode. (I’ve run out of rom coms movies to watch since I’ve watched them all… and the ones I haven’t I’m waiting for translations of. Such as the one about the fake marriage and twins–where one poses for the other–I request that to viki.com.)

    4. I have to agree it’s the banjeon. It’s not Paradise Ranch because that was horrible most of the way through and I don’t want to remember it. I still like the fan fiction episode the best of the lot. The telephone box bit which was popular back then is just a classic. Short and fun to watch with often quick reversals.

    5. If a movie sounds like “The Art of Seduction”

    6. Agree with the rest… though I don’t watch that many melos. Makjang still gives me hives.

    • 45.1 pogo

      I love MiSa and for all its other faults, the story seems like it’s heartfelt in the writing and directing (and acting)…..but realistic? About adoption? lol @the idea of that.

  46. 46 Ruki

    I think Ashley is talking about a scene from the master’s sun.

  47. 47 Ellie

    I’m thinking that the first one is Only You with Han Chae Young and Jo Hyun Jae. I could be wrong, but it sounds a lot like it.

  48. 48 guil

    if number three is a drama, then it definitely is master’s sun!

  49. 49 Noelle

    3) Master’s Sun. I find that some people call dramas movies. I don’t understand why. Or maybe this person just really believes this is a movie. If it is not Master’s Sun than I got no clue.

  50. 50 airy

    ok number 3 has to be master’s sun!
