Kim Myung-min dresses to impress for A New Leaf

The first teaser is out for Kim Myung-min’s lawyer-with-amnesia drama A New Leaf, as you can see here. You might be thinking, But that’s not a teaser, that’s just Kim Myung-min getting dressed. And you would not be wrong. But he gets dressed so well!

A New Leaf is one of those dramas where I can practically see the whole thing playing out already—cold shark of a lawyer gets amnesia, gets in touch with his inner softie, turns over a new leaf—but it definitely has a few selling points. First of which would be Kim Myung-min himself, who not only does well in every role he takes on, but has a knack of making his characters iconic. The ultimate cold doctor in White Tower, the Beethoven-loving asshole conductor Kang Maestro, the king of dramas who needs only one name to be recognized (Anthony, of course).

Another plus would be Kim Sang-joong as his lawyer mentor and father figure, who tries to help him out following the amnesia but finds it difficult dealing with his new personality. Also, the drama sounds a lot like the Harrison Ford movie Regarding Henry, which I saw ages ago and remember thinking was pretty compelling.

In the teaser below, which hardly needs explanation, Kim Myung-min gets dressed and then notes, “A person doesn’t change that easily.” That’s what amnesia’s for.

A New Leaf will be a Wednesday-Thursday darama that premieres on MBC on April 23.

Exciting! I think King of Dramas was slightly underrated the year it was broadcast (2012 I believe), and it certainly didn't help that it was airing at the end of the year during the Christmas season. Certainly easy for people to forget when naming their favourite dramas of 2012 or 2013.

The Immortal Lee Soon-shin (2004) was my first Kim Myung-min drama. I watched all 104 eps and loved every minute of it. I have to say no one can play Lee Soon-shin better than Kim Myung-min, NO ONE.

Kiara,

What do you mean by "very old school?" What does that actually mean, when it comes to Kdramas? (and maybe movies).
You loved it? Trust me, I could tell (and feel it), all the way here where I live :-) In all seriousness, true fans of a work or an artist are always appreciated. It's great to get Kdramas' recommendations from other Kdramas lovers.

104 episodes?? *faints* I love KMM but that's still so much to go through, haha. And generally I'm not a big fan of sageuks....except the fusiony ones.

Yea it was very long but I love sageuks and Korean history so I had no problem watching all of it lol. Admiral Lee Soon-shin earned his place in Korea's history so I was fascinated by him before the drama came along and KKM couldn't be more perfect.

I don't think I'll be able to watch that many anymore. Forty eps is the new 100 and that's the max for me unless I really like the writer.

KMM is dressing up again :-)! (What would Anthony say about that?) I am soooooo looking forward to this drama with all its actors and actresses (including PMY, who I am sure looks forward to learning a lot from her sunbaes. And she is having a reunion with KSJ).

I have a feeling that this drama will be pulling on our heartstrings. Bring it on!

I just watched the teaser. I had forgotten how good KMM voice is... And so is KSJ's by the way, which got my attention right away when I started watching City Hunter.

Same here. It's been a while hearing KMM's voice....so velvety, smooth, and sexy. One line is not enough...say more!! :P

Err... DayDreamer,

My day is not over (it's 11:55am my time), and I still need to function. Yes! His voice is all that you said. But you want more lines???!!!! How am I going to be able to stand if I hear more lines, when one line already makes me weak in the knees??!!!
As I said, I need to be able to stand up, and get things done (and yes, I am sitting down as I am typing this). Please, please, DayDreamer, let me at least have enough time to emotionally prepare myself for this drama (in 2 weeks), and for hearing KMM's voice at least twice a week (more if I rewatch the episodes). Can we at least agree on that :-)?

I hope your day (or evening, or night) is going well! :-)

Haha, I meant that KMM should have said more than one line in the trailer. I guess I didn't write that clearly enough. But yes, maybe we can go on and on about his wonderful voice when the drama airs.

It's daytime on my end of the woods too. About 3:30 PM. You also have a good day.

0

I am glad I made you laugh DayDreamer, that was intentional. And I did get that you meant one line in the trailer, and that was why I was being overly dramatic. I was saying that for me (at least for today), hearing that one line from him was enough for me. That is, until the drama airs in two weeks, then I would be OK with hearing more (than one line). I was implying that that was how much that one line affected me already (and the drama is not even airing yet).
I am sorry I confused you. I hope I made sense this time around :-)

No worries, I understood you this time.

@ DayDreamer, oh good!

Yes, the voice with all its implied wish for us to be alone somewhere anywhere.

Be still, my beating heart. Why does Kim Myung-min simply dressing up makes my heart race so, makes my face twist into a shit-eating grin, and makes my body quiver in excitement?? That trailer shows no naked bodies, no sizzling kisses, no shower scenes....yet watching it, the only thing I can think of is, "How sexy." Oh, the power of this ajhusshi. I really can't wait for this drama; bring on the heartwarming feel-good fuzzies.

As an aside, I'm so pleased with the latest stream of trailers on Dramabeans. They're all so well done and look so promising. April is indeed blessing us with wonderful dramas. Hope none of them fizzle out.

SO. WELL. SAID, DayDreamer!

I love that non flower boys older men can (still) make us anticipate their upcoming dramas with trepidation and excitement. Yes, as you said, "no naked bodies, no sizzling kisses, no shower scenes," yet we know that we will be in for a ride, and a very good one. Let's hope the viewers in Korea will feel the same way, and that this drama will have awesome ratings.

Anthony would SOOOO approve of that :-)

Aw Ivoire, good to see you share my enthusiasm too. And yes, definitely....this drama needs to be the king of ratings. ;)

The sad thing is that there are also other dramas that I'm anticipating that are airing roughly at the same time. I don't want them to be bad either...I want all of my babies to do well, haha. But if I had to choose, I'd say that I want this drama to be at the top just for KMM. He just happens to trump my love for My Queen, Lee Seung-gi, Go Ara, Lee Jong-seok, etc.

@ DayDreamer,
I do hope for you that all of your "babies" will do well. Question: who is your "Queen?" I am confused...

My Queen is a Taiwanese drama that is getting a Korean remake of it (titled "Witch's Romance"). It's airing next Monday. I'm quite excited for it because I do love the Taiwanese version.

Yay! His cheeks don't look hollow anymore!

After he did that movie about ALS he's looked really skinny. Even in "King of Dramas" he still looked half starved.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to this drama.

The whole plot line seems a bit stale and makjang, so not sure how far I will follow this one. About the time I think we have gotten away from the whole amnesia trope in k-dramas, it comes back to life again.

Required fields are marked *

I think the way the amnesia trope will play out here will be better in that it will constitute the whole plot. Because of amnesia, all sorts of things will happen rather than just using amnesia as a temporary way of keeping lovers apart as it usually is used. This is about character grow as a person.

“A person doesn’t change that easily.” That’s what amnesia’s for.

Hahaha. So true. The only reason I'd check this out for is KMM. But I need a way bigger reason than that to stick with it. He looks hot though, so if they provide me enough eyecandy, I might just be shallow enough...

That line sure was funny... And it could be that the execution of the amnesia plotline is well done, and so it will work out/come out OK. That is my hope, at least.

He is forever general Yi to me (and many others).
He got his name from 'Immortal YiSoonSin' before white tower and Beethoven virus. And people were so upset when he decided to do the Bad Family, after IYSS. How could he - our beloved general be a gangster! I remember fans' frustration that time so well.

He showed his comedic side in that drama for sure!

It's the styling. In KoD, he had a very pompous hairstyle that made him seem mature and then for a small segment, when he was portraying himself is teenage Anthony Kim, he looked soooo young with just a simple change in hairstyle. Quite amazing, I must say.
