Premiere Watch: People With Flaws, Chocolate

This week’s premieres are in different genres but are both centered around romance. Whether it’s a missed connection, or an attraction that manages to feel both wrong and right, our characters have an uphill battle ahead of them to achieve a lasting love.

 

People With Flaws

Time slot: Wednesday & Thursday
Broadcaster: MBC
Genre: Rom-com
Episode count: 32 episodes (35 minute episodes)

Reasons to watch: The drama follows a colorful, quirky group of people with flaws as they flirt, fight, and fall in love. The main leads are played by Ahn Jae-hyun and Oh Yeon-seo and they two first meet at work; Oh Yeon-seo is a high school teacher and Ahn chairs the school’s board of directors. It’s basically hate at first sight for Oh Yeon-seo as Ahn slots into everything she dislikes in a man: he’s vain, full of himself, and the epitome of a flower boy. Ahn Jae-hyun is both aggravated and attracted to Oh Yeon-seo and the more time they spend together, the more they come to see that their preconceptions are standing in the way of their genuine feelings for each other. Complicating matters is the fact that Ahn Jae-hyun’s best friend, played by Goo-won, also has feelings for Oh Yeon-seo. Kim Seul-gi has a supporting role as Oh Yeon-seo’s best friend and she has her own complicated loveline with Ahn Jae-hyun’s other BFF, Heo Jung-min.

 

Chocolate

Time slot: Friday & Saturday
Broadcaster: JTBC
Genre: Melo, romance
Episode count: 16 episodes

Reasons to watch: Ha Ji-won and Yoon Kye-sang headline in this healing melo about a passionate chef and a neurologist whose gruff manner is a mask for inner softie. Their love story starts with a meal together as children in a small seaside village in Korea, and fate brings them together again as adults when they meet in Greece. But somewhere between their encounter in Greece and their next reunion in Korea at a hospice, they’ve become strangers to each other, with each person nursing deep emotional wounds. During their time apart, Yoon Kye-sang has become one of the resident neurologists at a hospice (along with his rival and cousin Jang Seung-jo) and Ha Ji-won happens to volunteer there as a chef. It’s thanks in part to cooking and food that Yoon and Ha reconnect, and as their bond grows deeper, they heal and fall in love.

In the People With Flaws poster, I wonder why they didn't put Kim Seul-gi in-between Ahn Jae-hyun and Goo Won and move Hwang Woo-seul-hye or Shin Do-hyun to the other side so it can be boy-girl-boy-girl.

Am I the only person that thinks Chocolate's poster looks oddly vintage? Like it's set 50 years ago?

Do it @mayhemf!!
Money Flower is what makjang heaven looks like....if heaven is filled with pain, angst, emotional manipulation, incestuous feelings, and Jang Hyuk. In short, it is a perfect watch for the upcoming holiday season.

Aah.. money flower. My favorite revenge melo. And Jang Seung-jo was so good in it. He talent was wasted in encounter. He really needs to be a lead soon.

I feel compelled to watch Chocolate for the second lead and also repelled because Netflix. Will this actually be shown on time, with acceptable subtitles, with an ending? Not stopped a few episodes from the end and left dangling for days or weeks? Not stopped half way and left hanging for months? Not left open ended so I feel my time was wasted? I think I'm having a Netflix induced existential crisis. 🙄

I've watched Something In The Rain, One Spring Night, Abyss and When the Camellia Blooms on Netflix without any problems. Hopefully, what happened with My Country was an anomaly. They have subs way faster than Viki.

No, it was annoying as hell that the My Country subs were late (and scared us into thinking the show was discontinued)!

The first post. Hyun bin lovers jumped on the bandwagon and unleashed all the possible titles of Hyun bin dramas they could think of. It was hilarious and went on for days.

Oh this was hilarious

Just to nit pik: it is the female lead who is going to parachute into north Korea, Hyun bin will be waiting there to catch her! Lol!

(P.S. Errand girl would be very happy to take this role of the female lead, ;p)

I think it was because of the travel schedule to Switzerland, Mongolia, Jeju Island to Paju put the shooting schedule slightly behind. Even so, I estimate they have shot 8 episodes prior to the premiere. Whether the director or writer knows what is going to happen in the last 8 . . . . ?
