2009/01/01 | 488 views | Permalink | Source

KBS will introduce four new dramas in January. The wave of new dramas will be led by "The Iron Empress", followed by the morning drama "The Splendor of Youth", romantic comedy "Boys over Flowers", and the daily drama "The Road Home".

The epic historical drama "The Iron Empress" is about the granddaughter of Jumong, the founder of the Goguryeo Dynasty, who fought off three Qidan invasions. Noted actress Chae Si-ra plays the magnificent heroine, with Kim Suk-hoon in the role of Kim Chi-yang, the love of her life.

"The Splendor of Youth" is a morning drama about the love and dreams of our father's generation forty years back. This heart-warming show stars Yoo Da-in and Moon Bo-ryung.

"Boys over Flowers" is probably one of the most anticipated dramas of the New Year. Based on the Japanese comic book of the same title, the drama features four of today's hottest actors. The leading characters are played by Lee Min-ho, Kim Hyun-joong of the idol group SS501, Kim Beom, and Kim Jun. The lucky female character, who gets to hobnob with these four hunky guys, will be played by Ku Hye-sun.

The last one on the list is "The Road Home", a daily drama about a family whose members seek to heal their wounded hearts and find the true meaning of love and family.
