Premiere Watch: Love in Sadness
Time slot: Saturday
Genre: Melodrama, romance
Episode count: 40 episodes
Reasons to watch: We’ve had a steady stream of rom-coms lately but now we finally have a melo-romance we can tune into. Ji Hyun-woo and Park Han-byul star in this story about two people who face a difficult path to love. Park Han-byul’s character married into wealth, and by all appearances, her life seems perfect. Unfortunately, her “doting” chaebol husband (played by Ryu Soo-young) is far from the perfect husband — he’s abusive and obsessive. When Park Han-byul can no longer stay in her abusive marriage, she seeks help from Ji Hyun-woo’s character, who just happens to be a kind plastic surgeon. He agrees to help her hide from her chaebol husband and the two fall in love. But an obsessive husband isn’t likely to give up just because his wife is on the run. Will Ji Hyun-woo and Park Han-byul’s love story end in happiness or sadness?
