Sentimental teaser posters for MBC’s My Spring Days

In keeping with the drama’s melo-with-a-light-touch vibe, here we have fresh, spring-like posters for the MBC drama My Spring Days, wherein a heroine (named Spring) who’d lived for years with a terminal illness receives a heart transplant and is given a new chance at life. Kam Woo-sung is the grief-stricken widower who falls in love with her and gets a second chance at love. Hence, days of spring (and Spring) and new starts.

The posters all bear the same tagline: “Those were extraordinarily warm and brilliant spring days of my life.” At least it seems like an uplifting kind of drama, which hopefully means it won’t belabor the whole point where the heroine’s new heart comes courtesy of the hero’s dead wife. I know, I know, dramaland loves this kind of pain. So fateful! So narratively neat in the way it delivers its emotional torment!

That said, there’s something that’s very classic K-drama about this show, and I don’t mean that necessarily in a negative sense—wistfulness and nostalgia can, after all, be channeled into effective mood-making tools. At least, I won’t mean it’s a negative if this drama can make the most of its heartwarming mood and does something a little new with the premise. Because it needs to do something new with the premise if it wants to be more than just a remake of something we’ve all seen before.

My Spring Days will be a Wednesday-Thursday drama airing on MBC and follows Fated To Love You.

I'm really hoping this drama does well. Both cos I like the main leads and also to prove the naysayers wrong.
Don't know why noona romances are celebrated but this is causing so much discord

I'm not sure noona dramas are that celebrated except by those who happen to enjoy them... the ones who don't (and there are a LOT if my friends are anything to judge by) simply don't bother. But I agree that there's something very disturbing about the reception that this pairing is receiving. If Uhm Jung Hwa can act opposite a kid like Park Seo Joon (not to mention Kim Hee Ae and Yoo Ah In), why not Kam Woo Sung and Soo Young? Is the latter some prepubescent schoolgirl that needs to be protected from the big bad predatory older male? She's in her mid 20s, for god's sake. I'm cool with people hating on the storyline but doing so only because of the ages of the people cast is another thing entirely.

I actually like noona romances, however I tried watching "Witch's romance" but failed! I just cannot get over the age difference between UJH and PSJ. She seemed like a cradle robber to me LOL. However that was not the case in the T version, there was an age difference yes but they looked compatible. But that's just my opinion. In general I don't mind the age difference if they look good together *biased*

Also can I just have an irrational dislike to this drama just because it's replacing FTLY? :( hmmmph....but oh well, SooYoung looks beautiful here and the ahjushi is okay too..might as well give this drama a try.

I'm there with you. I have nothing against noona romances, but I'd like to see more of these ahjusshi romances as well.

Me, too. Anything to replace Fated To Love You is most welcome to try its luck.

Lately, unlikely ones often turned out to be surprisingly good or at least refreshing (like Mama or Yoona's Street), while ones that had production-by-the-numbers stamped on their head (like Hotel King or Angel Eyes or Fated To Love You or It's Love or you know the rest) sure turned out to be just that.

Kdramas (and their viewers) are bifurcating. I know to which group I belong.

Blaming noona romances? No, just saying what's the big deal with this age-gap if nowadays noona romances are the norm? I mean from SLA, HSKS.....

Noona romances are not the norm. We had a few of the them the past year and they were really good. Win-win situation if you ask me. Ahjushi- and oppa romances are the norm and will always be.

This plot is so similar to Summer Scent-- from the early 2000s.

Summer Scent is 2003. I don't see any problem for this one having a similar plot. I wonder why a lot of people feeling really so disturbed about it?
I mean, FTLY is a remake of a Taiwanese drama. We all know how it's gonna end. Same as Contabile.. Boys over Flowers and others. The only different is the process of it. The identity of each character in My Spring Days are also different with (what we think might have) the same story line with Summer Scent.
Another example, there are tons and tons of kdrama with the same girl falling in love with a bad boy and abandoning the good boy and later it turns out the bad boy is actually pretty nice guy and so they live happily ever after. I don't see any problem with this drama.

It's just so last decade, cliched n boring.

hahaha... that's why this drama should be just fine.

Summer Scent is one of classic kdramas.

Just because it's 'so last decade' still doesn't entitled it to be clinched and boring. The MSD drama hasn't even started yet to quickly jump to the conclusion.

Your comment is actually very funny.

There is nothing in Ilonna's comment that says she has a problem with the plot. She simply stated a fact.
And the problem is not the drama or whatever, we should just all respect each others opinion.

I'm not condemning Ilonna's comment. There's indeed nothing wrong with it. If you read my reply closely again, I wrote "people" instead of "you". I was just stating my opinion about comments/reviews that I read so far regarding the similarities of the plot to Summer Scent.

You shouldn't concern yourself with what other people may think. I am sure you also have a type of drama or actor that you just dislike.

0

Fab, you misunderstood my comment again...

0

jajajaja, I understand and I disagree and I am trying to avoid a useless discussion.

0

@Fab I don't think it's wrong to express why you disagree with a view. It's not like you're asking that person's view to change, but you simply want to offer your reasons for having a different opinion. It's a natural part of discussion.

0

@Fab This isn't just about her concerning herself with "what other people think." If she, independently, has a view and sees views that challenge that in her eyes, why can't she offer another side? If we're truly respecting that people have their own dislikes, then we should also respect the differing opinions that come in response. Many times people have disagreed with my opinion on an actor or drama and, sometimes, if they actually take time to explain the reasons they disagree, I come away with a different take on things. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it.

I was thinking that too! I actually liked Summer Scent (all the Seasons dramas, really) but I have no desire to watch another version. For those planning to give it a go though, I hope it's good!

There's something very sincere and old-school about the tone of these teasers. I like them and the main couple looks pretty compatible to me.

I personally was hoping Lee Jun Hyuk’s return would be in something darker--not mellow necessarily--like a thriller or a noir. I liked him in City Hunter but I was really impressed with him in Equator Man (which was not perfect but I his character was interesting, as was his portrayal). I don't mind the premise or the age gap, I'm just inundated with too many rom-coms; need a dash of true grit!

Aw, I'm actually quite excited for this one. Is my excitement greatly influenced by Kam Woo-sung? Yes. But despite how dated this premise is, I've actually never had a lot of experience with it MYSELF. So at least it isn't rehashed material for me. And a hopeful story about second-chances at life and love? Could be pretty wonderful.

I finally remembered which movie this reminds me of: Return To Me with Minnie Driver and David Duchovny

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0122459/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_39

Highly forgettable IMO but I seem to recall a very romantic quote (can't remember the words)

Anyway, looking forward to this but I'm worried about the number of "re-uploads" in the kdrama-verse. Are the script writers on strike???

It's on the IMDB page, I had looked it up when the first stills of this drama came out.

I am actually liking the Wed-Thurs lineup of MBC and I've watched almost all except for A New Leaf so I'm giving this one a chance as well. I have never seen Summer Scent, nor Return to Me so I don't really care if the story would be similar to those two.

I like the trailer and the posters are quite nice, too.
