Premiere Watch: Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick, Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce)

After a bajillion premieres towards the end of last year, it feels like dramaland has been eerily quiet. But don’t worry, there are two new cable shows coming to us next week. And though they seem like very different dramas, they’re both about love — featuring marriage, divorce, office romance, and the hoobae of my our dreams.

 

Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick

Time slot: Monday & Tuesday
Broadcaster: JTBC
Genre: Romance
Episode count: 16

Reasons to watch: To say I have been looking forward to Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick is a massive understatement. We’ve all experienced it, right? Sometimes there’s a show that grabs you from the get-go for no particular reason, and doesn’t let go. Well, maybe Extraordinary You + Ro-woon and Just Between Lovers + Won Jin-ah have something to do with my excitement. And so does the PD from the sweet-hearted 20th Century Boy and Girl. And the swoony trailers. But all those bits of excitement aside, dramas like this one can be dangerous for setting sky-high expectations, and then not meeting them, so it’s probably better to save the swoons until we have the evidence in front of us. *Disregards own warning and swoons freely in expectation of this office/noona romance*

 

Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce)

Time slot: Saturday & Sunday
Broadcaster: TV Chosun
Genre: Family
Episode count: 16

Reasons to watch: TV Chosun has another drama at the ready, and Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) looks to be pretty fun and soapy. The story follows three couples in their 30s, 40s and 50s, and chronicles the drama that hits their lives and marriages. The multi-generational angle here is interesting to me — so often dramas about mid-life couples get passed over, so I’m wondering if this arrangement will fare better. The cast is interesting, and full of familiar faces (Jeon No-min, Park Joo-min), some newer names, and then a little bit of Sung Hoon thrown in for good measure. TV Chosun is still an underdog in the cable world, and while it shows a bit in their productions, it always makes me want to pay extra attention to their endeavors.

I also can't help myself -- my expectations for Sunbae are taller than Rowoon, if that's even possible.

I was looking forward to Sunbae until I saw the teasers. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised by the actual product? Do I have room for more romance when Run On has my heart?

Not really a Sung Hoon fan but I might give Love a try.

Currently rewatching the family drama Five Enough - just for the scenes of Shin Hye-sun and Sung Hoon couple. They really almost steal the show from the lead couple, so very cute and lovely. I have to say Sung Hoon hasn’t quite recreated the magic swoony in his subsequent dramas and SHS has a lot to credit for co-creating that wonderful chemistry.

It’s great that the whole drama is available through KBS World TV at YT. It’s so easy to ff just watching their scenes. Guilty pleasure.

can't wait to watch sunbae dont put on that lipstick, but JTBC use english title "She Would Never Know" for this drama, it's confusing because the title still long to pronounce.

I hope that Love (Ft. Marriage and Divorce)/Marriage Lyrics and Divorce Music could be only the Dramabeans first premiere week review (like Get Revenge did) since I knew DB rarely not entirely covered the dramas on small Korean cable networks (MBN, TV Chosun, Channel A) anymore.

Meanwhile, Love (Ft. Marriage and Divorce) coulda meant a "revenge musical soap drama" and my good-ratings expectations already got high so this isn't hitting my high notes yet and I'm still in medium notes despite of one of my favorite 2021 K-dramas, so I'll watch this along with Sunbae.

Thanks to Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick, I will have something to watch when Awaken will end.

It's been a long time, I didn't watch a real romance drama (between adults, both adults...).
