Noh Min-woo gets in bed for Midas

Funny what a difference one project makes: After Pasta and My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho, all I could muster for Pretty Emo Boy Noh Min-woo was indifference. Then you put him in four episodes of ’80s-music-themed Rock Rock Rock, and suddenly he’s adorable, energetic, and emotive.

I’m hoping it’s the latter Noh Min-woo we get to see in Midas, the SBS Monday-Tuesday drama which, if you base on these previews, is about…uh…something. I’m not sure what. But it’s intense and exciting, perhaps. And it’s about MIDAS.

Official descriptions to give us a few more details, such as how it’s set in the business world and deals with the conspiracies and betrayals of the chaebol world. It stars Jang Hyuk, Lee Min-jung, and Kim Hee-ae; Noh Min-woo plays the latter’s younger brother, a rich playboy from a chaebol family.

Midas follows Athena, which oddly enough ends on a Monday without a special or extra broadcast. That means Midas‘s first episode will air on Tuesday, February 22.

Muchas gracias, mi amiga! Muy interessante!
Not sure where the MIDAS bit comes in, but there's the usual boy who just wants a peaceful life, the pure girl in love with said boy, but he doesn't love her. She becomes a nurse to a hot chaebol playboy with terminal cancer (I am not making this shit up) and the hot playboy falls in love with her. And there's some 40-year-old bitch with a double personality. LOL.

JB, are you sure you actually want to know what this is about?

Jang Hyuk is Kim Do-hyun
A boy with a sad past who has made himself into a brilliant, accomplished man. His one wish is for a peaceful, stable life. However, once he begins working for the chaebol Yoo family, his ambitions and desires come to light (I think, Linda, feel free to correct me). To achieve his wish/goal, he sells his soul. (Yikes!)

Lee Min-jung is Lee Jung-yoon
She is Do-hyun's girlfriend, an innocent and pure girl. When she graduates from nursing school she goes to work at a hospital. Because of her excellent work, she is able to ascend in little time.
She only has eyes for one man: Do-hyun. But when she discovers that he's in love with another woman, she decides to get revenge. (El. Oh. El.) When she is assigned to the hospital's VIP room, where we find Yoo Myung-joon (Noh Min-woo), Jung-yoon sells her soul and vows to become Myung-joon's girl to punish Do-hyun for having betrayed her.
[What is with the selling of souls? Is there, like, some soul market that I'm unaware of?]

Kim Hee-ae is Yoo In-hye
The eldest daughter of the chaebol Yoo family. She owns her own company. She is 40-years-old but she is still single because she wants to become a woman of power. She is a woman with a double personality.
[Excellent, because the only way a woman can be a powerful business woman is to give up hope of companionship or sanity. Gag me.]

Noh Min-woo is Yoo Myung-joon
The younger son of the Yoon (Yoo?) family. He's your typical rich and handsome playboy who doesn't get along with his father. He can have any woman but he falls in love with Jung-yoon.
Life is unfair and Myung-joon has terminal cancer (hahaha), and Jung-yoon is his nurse at the hospital. This is the first time that Myung-joon is truly in love, but as his condition worsense....
Dun Dun DUUNN!

So...JB, you're TOTALLY recapping this, yeah?

Lol, so basically it has every cliche in the book.

Anyway, Midas is the one who can turn anything into gold. He even turned his own daughter into gold. But it was something he asked for after saving the life of a satyr. But this gift turned into a curse.

So I can sort of see how the two are similar. I don't have time at the moment to type it all out, but if you read the Midas wikipedia page (about King Midas) you might be able to see the similarities.

Yeah, I loved the story of Midas when I was little. I'm just not sure who is Midas here. Too much of a good thing becoming a bad thing? He's Midas? She's Midas? Everyone's Midas? I don't even know.

I still want a Kdrama called Aphrodite. It can be all about eating grapes and making love. Or following k-drama convention, it can be about none of that. :D

What's with the terminal cancer and playboy? they don't go hand in hand. The Midas of them all is the girl that like NMW's character just to get revenge to her ex then, no one in the right mind will do that, I spent months with my sister in law who died of cancer and you cant think of anything else but to ease their pain..

0

I vaguely remember the story from Mythology class, but I'm still a bit iffy on the similarities. Except for the selling of souls for wealth part, what else is there? And I don't think anyone in the original story ever had terminal cancer.

But, because I'm a very shallow person that's sold her soul to the K-drama gods...and the pretty...I'll give this one a shot.

There wasn't anyone in the original story with terminal cancer; I don't think they even knew what cancer was back then, but I think the whole too much of a good thing is a bad thing.

He's rich, good-looking, etc. So naturally terminal cancer balances it out? I don't know, but there's enough similarities between the myth and the story for me to see where they're going with the title.

Great translation! The whole selling of souls also confuses me. I think it means they do a 180 on their personalities and betray their real feelings. Also... The. Illness. Why?????

See, if they REALLY sold their souls, then think of what a different show this could be. A little bit of Portrait of Dorian Grey, a little Faust and we'd be telling a different tale altogether!

Sadly, I'm thinking that it means that they go against their better nature and go for a goal that goes against their initial moral upbringing.

Yeah, it's cliche. The weird thing is that i found it interesting (why, i dont know) and i want to watch it! If they do it right, could be good. if they do it wrong, i can laugh. But if they dont do it right or make me laugh, it will just be another drama.
I dont know if in English you use this expression, but in Spanish sell your soul,the complete frase would be sell your soul to the Devil, explains pretty much itself, especially when a person who is know to be "bad" or that will make you suffer, makes you a favor and you have to pay him (or her).

My friend and I have a running list of "things we've learned from dramas," and one of them is about how people only die from cancer and car accidents. Seriously?

I'll probably give Midas a go. It sounds like it has the potential for awesomness - or awesome badness. Either way, could be amusing!

From what I can remember, he said once in Golden Bell that one of his complex is the redness of his lips. Usually, he puts on powder on them but in the end he already ate the powder. Thus the redness. LOL

I liked him when he was in Trax. Can't believe the blond punk girl is the same person as this pouty black-haired boy. Dayum. Weird.
I still think he looked the hottest in that mv with snsd's Yoona. Can't remember the song but the mv was very Sin City-ish.
Anyway, I'll be looking forward to Midas. Good chaebol drama would be nice.

LOL You do realize that theasianstalker is a teenager who usually goes to sleep some time after 2am on the weekdays (junior year is a killer) so she doesn't surface from her room until sometime after 12:00 on Saturday's. Yes, so when she sees that other people commented on her LOVE before her she will go into shock. Of course, I'm not waking her up either :P I'll let her sleep a little longer, she is probably dreaming about Noh Min Woo :D

Because it's really cliche... come on, can't people think of other things other then sending people off with cancer?

Most importantly....

WHO ARE THEY SELLING THEIR SOULS TO?!?!?!
