Hanoi Bride (하노이 신부)

하노이 신부 (Ha-no-i Sin-boo)

Directed by Park Kyeong-ryeol (박경렬)

Screenplay by


SBS | Airing dates :

2 episodes (2x60min)

“MARRY A VIETNAMESE LADY” The drama introduces lives of Eun-wu, a promising young doctor, Seok-wu, a 40-year-old bachelor who is as down to earth as savory soybean paste soup, and Tiv, a 21-year-old girl who comes to Korea in pursuit of Eun-wu’s love as an unintentional Vietnamese bride for Seok-wu, Eun-wu’s brother. At first glance, this drama seems to depict a love triangle between Tiv and the two brothers. However, it actually deals with the young doctor Eun-wu’s personal growth in love and life as he realizes the true meaning of life through Seok-wu and Tiv.

  • Multiculturalism a New Theme in Korean Movies

    2012/01/13, Source
    More and more Korean movies, including "Pacemaker" by director Kim Dal-joong that opens next Thursday, are taking on the theme of multiculturalism that is changing the face of Korean society. In 2010, one out of every 10 marriages involved a foreign spouse, while the number of children from multicultural families has grown seven-fold from 25,000 in 2006 to 160,000 in 2010. And this trend is being portrayed more frequently on the silver screen. It was TV dramas that first dealt with the issue. The SBS dramas "Hanoi Bride" (2005) and "Golden Bride" (2007) featured a Korean man who married a Vietnamese woman. But the main focus of those soaps was mostly about the love between a man and a woman that transcended borders. They avoided dealing with the complex issues facing multicultural families. However, recent movies have shown more interest in depicting how families from different social and cultural backgrounds manage in Korean society,...More

SBS's Special Commemorative K-Drama "Bride From Hanoi" Yet Another K-Classic by ffwee001`

reetings From Singapore and Wishing One & All A Happy & Prosperous Year Ahead 2007

It is commendable that SBS lends a helping hand and shares its talents by producing this special 2-part series shot in Hanoi and Korea to commemorate the end of the Vietnam War, its 30th Anniversary a collaborative project perhaps which includes Vietnamese cast.

Sincerely hope that in the near future such projects would also extend to other Asian countries by helping us tell our stories as I believe that K-Dramas have set the industry standards in drama/movie productions.

Besides the beautiful locations shooting on the landmarks of Hanoi, the Korean cast also made efforts to learn to speak Vietnamese language too !

The philosophy/life skill imparted in this storyline is I discovered - "marriage is about buying a pair of shoes: you should have the right to choose a pair you feel comfortable and not to be over duly concerned about how people feel about it".

I'm deeply impressed as usual by K-Drama scripts, the writer whose hidden message and impact to me is not so much on the romance between the lead actor and lead actress but rather the impact of their romance on the lead actor's elder brother and his sweetheart love - a girl from the same hometown and better qualified than the elder brother who was a farmer.

The exciting part is both brothers "fell for the same Vietnamese girl" and when the elder brother returned to Korea with a future Hanoi bride under a matchmaking programme organised by the Korean government, the younger doctor brother was shocked to see his Hanoi girlfriend whom he lost contact due to man-made circumstances....................

The elder brother had yet to consummate their marriage but the trip to Korea was regarded more of an exploratory trip for the future bride to consider marrying him. Her apprearance created tension to all and enabled the elder brother's sweetheart to re-discover the wholesome character of the elder brother who had always put her in his heart until he had to give in to their mother's persistent pressures to find a spouse.

Happy ending for both brothers as elder brother's perpetual sweetheart began to see him from a human perspective rather than by qualifications (case of a woman marrying down) and through the Hanoi Bride's "counselling" she managed to gather her courage/will to accept him while the younger doctor brother returned to Hanoi to look for his "lost pair of shoes" !(case of a man marrying a woman of lower social status as his mother initially objected strongly to this marriage as she preferred his lady doctor colleague - scolding his younger son for not choosing a diamond in front of him !

I find that I can connect very well with the values,thoughts, mindsets and concerns aired by the parents' characters which mirros the way we also think when choosing a life partner to an extent at least for our generation.

Please watch when you have the chance !

Best regards,

Wee Fong-Fong (Miss)
