New daily drama Smile, Dong-hae premieres this week
Smile, Dong-hae is KBS’s new daily drama starring Ji Chang-wook (Sons of Sol Pharmacy) in his first starring role. Here are a whole slew of stills from the show, which premieres this week.
Ji plays a Dong-hae, a Korean-American short-track speed skater who is selected to be on the U.S. national team. This means that Ji has been busy training under a former national speed skater in order to lend those scenes as much realism as possible, spending four to five hours daily at the ice rink.
Dong-hae goes to Korea to find his girlfriend (Park Jung-ah), but after arriving in Korea, he is “betrayed” by her and then embarks on a new romance with Three Brothers‘s Oh Ji-eun. He also seeks out the father he never knew, and in the process he develops relationships with other people and forms a different kind of family.
Also starring are Clazziquai’s Alex (Pasta), singer-actor Lee Jang-woo (Three Brothers), and After School’s Joo-yeon. Smile, Dong-hae follows Fine Windy Day and airs its first episode Monday, October 4. It is a daily drama. (Too bad; it looks cute and I enjoy some of the actors, but I don’t do dailies. Too… many… episodes.)
