SBS is taking a lighter, funnier approach to its weekend programs right now, with the newly premiered rom-com Birth of a Beauty joining the ridiculously goofball Modern Farmer on Saturdays and Sundays.

Exactly how many leading men will Lee Bo-young have in this drama? Not that it would exactly be torturous to have her be surrounded by guys all drama long. On the heels of Jo Seung-woo (Horse Healer) and Kim Tae-woo (That Winter, the Wind Blows) signing on to her new drama God’s Gift—14 Days, now... More »
