Premiere Watch: Angel’s Last Mission: Love, One Spring Night

Love is in the air with this week’s drama premieres as we gear up for summer.

 

Angel’s Last Mission: Love

Time slot: Wednesday & Thursday
Broadcaster: KBS
Genre: Fantasy, rom-com
Episode count: 32 episodes

Reasons to watch: L takes on the leading man mantle in this fantasy rom-com as an angel with a mission: find true love for prima ballerina Shin Hye-sun. If he manages to play cupid successfully, he’ll be able to return to heaven and leave earth. What sounds like a straightforward task may be a mission impossible for the wayward angel. A terrible accident has left Shin Hye-sun a prickly skeptic when it comes to love. L’s mission is further complicated when he finds himself falling in love with Shin Hye-sun. Lee Dong-gun will complete the main cast as a cold, sophisticated ballet company director. I love Shin Hye-sun and she’s wonderful at injecting humor and warmth into her roles. I’m expecting wacky shenanigans and touching emotional beats.

 

One Spring Night

Time slot: Wednesday & Thursday
Broadcaster: MBC
Genre: Romance, melo
Episode count: 32 episodes

Reasons to watch: Han Ji-min and Jung Hae-in star as two people who happen to meet one fateful spring night. As their individual stories unfold, their feelings for each other blossom. As with any melo, it wouldn’t be a story without complications. Han Ji-min is in a comfortable, long-term relationship with a man who seems perfect on paper Kim Joon-han–but there’s something missing. When she meets Jung Hae-in, she’ll have to choose between what’s familiar and what moves her heart. I understand anyone who’s approaching this show with some caution, but despite weaknesses in Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food, the creative minds who brought us Pretty Noona do romance quite well so hopefully their skills will be on show for their latest drama, One Spring Night.

I loved Shin Hye Sun in 30 but 17 so I'm definitely considering checking out her new drama.

Wow, that poster for Angel's Last Mission: Love is really, really pretty. This wasn't on my radar before but my interest is piqued. I've actually never seen Shin Hye-sun in anything (besides some smaller roles I hardly remember), but I quite liked L in what I saw of Miss Hammurabi (and he will always have a soft spot in my heart for Shut Up: Flower Boy Band), so I'm hoping he delivers a good performance here as well. Also, it's always a welcome change when the female lead is the prickly one!

I'm wary of One Spring Night despite never even watching Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food. Beanies have made me that terrified of the show, lol. Also, the story seems to, at the very least, border on adultery... which I am not at all in favor of unless the other person is really, really terrible... and yet, some twisted part of me wants to check this one out.

She was excellent in 30 but 17, which Iwould wholeheartedly recommended. Mainly because it introduced me to Yang se Jong which I'm grateful for. And I would also recommend Duel which he was amazing in😁

The teasers for Angel's Last Mission are very pretty and exciting. Plus I like the song choices.

Mindy, Shin Hye-sun was totally extraordinary in 30 but 17. She gets just under anybody's skin being fragile and yet strong. I think this role as a ballerina will suit her very much.

Now from the creators of "Pretty Noona"... can we give them a chance?? I adore Jung Hae in, but I would really have doubts watching him with the same writer and director. πŸ˜”

Like you, I liked L in Miss Hammurabi and I loved Shin Hye-sun in 30 but 17. It's that it's the writer of Lucky Romance that makes me a bit weary.

Will probably do my usual: wait for 4 episodes to have aired before I pick it up (unless the fanwall entices me earlier lol)

I really love Secret Affair and Heard It Through the Grapevine from the same Director of Pretty Noona and now One Spring Night but with a different writer... I really hope that One Spring won't be a disaster...

Loved me some Secret Affair. That was very good and the ending, was everything it should have been.

She was a criminal and yes, she should be in jail.

One spring night vaguely reminds me of On the Way to the Airport....

except, they main characters were married in OTWTA... watched a longer teaser of "Spring Night" this morning; somehow reminds me the longer teaser of "Pretty Noona...."

Yep. The characters in OTWTA are married. Its just the vibes that vaguely reminds me of OTWTA. Character description for JHI is he is a single dad. I think how he becomes a single dad is yet not known. HJM on the other hand is in a long term relationship. I didn't watch pretty noona, so I can't compare. Hoho

The more information that comes out about Spring Night, the more it seems like it a second Pretty Noona because the original premise (a married couple falling out of love) has apparently changed to the standard melo trope of a chance meeting of strangers sparking a new relationship.

Looking forward to one spring night. Hjm and jhi plus a good PD is something that excites me. I hope the writer will deliver this time.

I'm giving this writer one more chance.
I love PD Ahn too much to skip this. I'm always taken by the colorful and almost magical mood that he creates and the un -compromised ways he tells the story.

Another thing that I enjoy watching is the BTS clips from PD Ahn's dramas. There is no question that he takes good care of his staffs and the happy mood behind the scenes makes me appreciate their hard work even more.

Lee PD of Angel's Last Mission is also the genius behind Healer and Seven Day Queen, which are two of my all-time faves so I will definitely check that out

(All-time fave is too less of a phrase to describe my love for both those dramas tbh)

These two promote beauty in every promo of theirs and i love that! Shin Hye Sun is one talented actress so of course i'm curious with her drama with L, and in my own 'imaginary expectation world' i can already feel how angsty their story could become. I really wish they will not dissapoint and can successfully deliver it somehow. As for One Spring Night....i'm quite conflicted. I found Pretty Noona already boring even before it goes downhill, but i really love the directing in that drama. I love the subtle feels and the slow pace it took. One Spring Night promising so many similarities with the first other, so maybe even if didnt watch it for the story, i'll watch it for their cinematography and directing

Nice. I'll probably check out both, but I don't think I'll follow either. >_<

I guess I'll have to skip One Spring Night. May someone kindly send me Pharmacist scenes with Jung Hae In? Asking for myself. (hahaha)

I remember that Pretty Noona and My Ahjussi premiered at the same time. I wanted to watch both of them so much. At the time I thought both were May/December romances and thought it would be interesting to compare. Plus, the previews for Noona were so charming and though I'd only seen the lead in one movie (Spellbound) I thought she was great with this warmth and charm.
Anyway, I didnt have Netflix at the time so only watched My Ahjussi which was.....beautiful.

Man I hope they do One Spring Night some justice, I frigging loved JHI in Pretty Noona, but I hated the drama as a whole. Still looking forward to some cute noona romance and adorable quirks!

Is Angel’s Last Mission: Love based on a C-drama? I recently saw a C-drama that has a similar plot except that the girl was no ballerina. I can't recall the name!!!

Both dramas here seem interesting. Will check them out for sure.

Really looking forward to watch Angel last mission! have been reading translation of some of the thing said about this drama at the press con. and seems like they want to tell a multi layered story and not just a ballet, rom-com and fantasy drama. But also a dive into the different side of humanity.
SHS summed it up nicely:

"We've talked much about ballet and about fantasy, so when I look at the screenplay, each of the characters that appear in this drama, you will see the process of each one's emotions being 'lowered' all the way to the bottom. This process, that the angel gets to observe, is what is portrayed, and that process of 'degradation' of a human at times can give you chills and came to me as very scary moments, you see. So if you watch and see the many facets of (what ought to be) 'human form', human greed, I hope you can enjoy? or more soberly (as the director-nim had mentioned) as if for the first time, these are the viewing points, I wonder, so I believe it's a drama that can offer satisfaction for all your senses."

Watching SHS playing a chaebol heiress who’s all sharp edges and thorns is a hoot. Doesn’t give an inch to all those rough male chaebol heirs in kdrama land. Unlike them, she has some reason to be angry with the world.

Just finished watching two episodes of ONe Spring Night - loved it because the story moved fast, characters were relatable and realistic so is the premise and the actors are top notch. I did not find similarities with Pretty Noona though it's by the same director. I already love the angst I feel for the two characters and have decided to watch it till the end.
