Singer/Actors to Dominate TV in May

2011/05/02 Source

Singer/actors such as Jang Nara, Yoon Eun-hye, Sung Yu-ri, and Park Yoo-chun will appear as protagonists on TV.

Actors from singing groups will dominate TV dramas once again. Many TV dramas recently could not become "star" dramas, and at this moment, new dramas, in which actors from singing groups appear as the protagonist of the drama, will begin airing from May. The drama genres are also very similar. Except for the MBC drama "Miss. Ripley", all other dramas will be romantic comedy dramas. In these beautiful spring days, viewers are expected to fall in love with these sweet romantic comedy dramas.

Jang Nara will make a comeback after a six-year break. = Actress Jang Nara, who has recently received great love in China for several years, will come back to Korean dramas with her appearance in KBS 2TV's new Monday and Tuesday drama "Babyfaced Beauty" (written by Oh Seon-hyeong and Jeong Do-yoon, directed by Lee Jin-seo and Lee So-yeon-I), which will begin airing from May 2 as a follow-up drama to "Detectives in Troubles". It has been six years since she appeared in the drama "Wedding" in 2005. "Babyfaced Beauty" will tell the story of a thirty four year-old woman, who has no merit of educational background and financial status, working at a fashion company using only her absolutely young appearances, and it will tell the story of how she attains love and becomes successful in her work. Actually, Jang Nara has a very young appearance for her age, and she will play a character who is four years older than her actual age, so the drama will create the perfect effect of her young appearance on the drama. During the production presentation, Jang Nara said, "When I was young, I suffered a loss due to my young appearance, but now I am really worried because the drama's title is 'Babyfaced Beauty'". Actor Choi Daniel will play her counterpart in the drama.

Sung Yu-ri will transform into a maid. = Actress Sung Yu-ri, who has the image of a "princess", will play a maid in a drama. On KBS's new Wednesday and Thursday drama "Romance Town" (written by Seo Sook-hyang, directed by Hwang Ee-kyeong), which will begin airing from May 11 as a follow-up drama to "The Thorn Birds", she will make a comeback after a two-year break since she appeared in the drama "Swallow the Sun". "Romance Town" will be the story of doubtful maids who work at chaebol families, and Sung Yu-ri will play the protagonist named Roh Soon Geum, who has nothing to fear in the world. The drama will present fun by looking into the secret reality of chaebol families, and their maids, who have taken a role of only supporting actresses in many other dramas, will lead the whole story from a different point of view. Sung Yu-ri's agency said, "Sung Yu-ri will present different charms in the drama by playing a bold and strong character". Her counterparts will be played by actors Jung Gyu-woon, and Kim Min-joon.

Yoon Eun-hye will be embroiled in a marriage scandal. = On SBS's new Monday and Tuesday drama "Lie to Me" (written by Kim Ye-ri-I, directed by Kim Soo-ryong), which will begin airing from May 9 as a follow-up drama to "Midas", actress Yoon Eun-hye will not spare herself while acting. "Lie to Me" will tell the story of a marriage scandal between an elite young businessman, who has everything in terms of finances, academics, and appearance, and a wild-eyed impromptu woman in her twenties. Yoon Eun-hye will play a public official named Kong Ah Jeong. She is not a perfectionist, but she has a strong positive drive. She played an extravagant and imperial heiress of a chaebol family in her previous drama "My Fair Lady", but this time, she will play a completely different character who wears a sloppy gym suit. She is expected to show an easygoing and lively comic acting style for "Yoon Eun-hye - style" just like she had presented in her previous hit drama "Coffee Prince", which made her a star actress. Actor Kang Ji-hwan will play her counterpart in the drama.

Park Yoo-chun will fall in fatal love. = Actor Park Yoo-chun, who had been greatly loved with his appearance in the drama "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" last year, will make a comeback with his appearance on MBC's new Monday and Tuesday drama "Miss. Ripley" (written by Kim Seon-yeong, directed by Choi I-seob), which will begin airing from May 30 as a follow-up drama to "The Duo". He played a rigid and straightforward "flower scholar" in "Seongkyunkwan Scandal", and this time, he will play a handsome heir of a chaebol family. He is a warmhearted kind man named Yutaka who never shows off his financial background even though he is the heir to a major resort company. The production company said, "He has every qualification that might steal every female viewer's hearts. You might be able to find out his different charms in this drama". "Miss. Ripley" is a melodrama that has been made with a motif of "Shin Jeong Ah scandal". It will tell the story of love and destruction among a woman who sinks into a pit of lies while struggling to succeed and two men. Actors including Kim Seung-woo, Lee Da-hae, and Kang Hye-jung will appear in the drama along with Park Yoo-chun.
