- Stolen shoe designs
I saw this drama back around 2009, and I remember it was an older drama even then. It has to be either a ’90s or early 2000s drama. What I remember–there were two sisters, the “good” sister and the “bad” sister. (The bad sister might have been a stepsister, half-sister or a cousin, can’t remember.) The good sister designs shoes. The bad sister, a.k.a. second female lead, either ends up working for the same company or just in the same field, and steals her designs. There is a male lead and romance but I don’t remember specifics. It felt very old, like Tomato or Attic Cat, with the cliched, jealous second female and Candy protagonist. But beyond the age and the stolen shoe designs I don’t remember much else.
- A jerk and a video
A girl confesses to a jerk and news of her confession gets spread around the campus. Later on, we find out that the jerk didn’t spread the story after all. Some other guy accidentally got a video of the confession, and a group of mean girls forced that guy to show them what he recorded. I just remember this scene because the video guy was so far away (up in a building?) that you had to suspend logic to believe that he could record something from that distance with just his cell phone’s camera.
- A multilingual love confession
There was a drama that my friend was watching and I saw a scene that really stood out to me. All I remember is that the main guy was reciting “I love you” in different languages to the main girl. I think she was from somewhere rural, so she was kind of country bumpkin-looking (if I remember the way she dressed correctly, lol). Please help me figure out this drama! Would like to watch it.
- A marriage plot
The female lead is a competent TV announcer and the male lead is this playboy chaebol that really likes her. He ruins her career so that she’s forced to marry him, but then they eventually fall in love.
- Purse abuse
In the scene, the mother of either the female lead or the female lead’s best friend is in a mall. I don’t remember what happens but one rich lady (who is one of the bad guys in the drama) hit her with a purse. A mall employee filmed the scene with her phone and put it online. When her daughter learns about the video, she tries to delete it from the internet before her mother can find out about the video’s existence.
