So, it is guaranteed, Lee Min-ho, Jong Yong-hwa and friends will definitely cheer-up your gloomy day or bring more joy to your already-happy first day of the new year.
1. "City Hunter"
The charming Lee Min-ho successfully hooked the K-drama lovers by his double-identity in this drama inspired by Tsukasa Hojo's comic with the same title : '"City Hunter"'. The plot is amazing with unexpected twist in its action and romance. If you're looking for some thrilling experiences to begin the year, this drama is the perfect choice.
2. "Lie to Me"
Do you have someone in your mind whom you want to marry? You might want to try Gong Ah-jeong's (Yoon Eun-hye) method in securing the wedding ring. Started by a foolish trick that is aiming to deceive her 'bestfriend', brings Ah-jeong to get the man of her dream.
3. "Secret Garden" (technically 2010)
"Secret Garden" teaches us a number 1 highly important lesson : 'Never innocently receive a homemade-floral-wine offered by a restaurant owner'. It might give you a big surprise in the following morning. Curious about the surprise? Spoiled yourself with this fantasy melodrama starring Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won
4. "Protect the Boss"
Kim Jae-joong…hmm….Yes he is famous for his angelic voice. Having separated from the popular group, TVXQ, Kim Jae-joong debuted a new boyband called JYJ with two other ex-TVXQ and still gets the spotlight for his amazing voice. But, have you seen his acting skill? I'm sure you'll be leaved with amazement seeing Kim Jae-joong in this drama.
ShinHwa couple ( Par Sin-hye and Jung Yong-hwa) will steal your heart one more time after the success of You're Beautiful. Music lovers! Pay a close attention and open up your ears. You'll be pleased by a lot of beautiful rhythm and lyrics.
6. "Me Too, Flower!"
A love triangle in a drama? Hmm…Nothing special about it. But a story about a double-identity-man forced to choose one among 3 beautiful flowery women, that's a refreshing plot in a K-drama industry. If it was you, would you choose a sharp-mouthed policewoman, a CEO of the most wanted clothing line, or a innocent yet sly gold-digger to be the girl of your life??
7. "The Princess' Man"
Addicted by a storyline of a forbidden love a la Romeo and Juliet? Perhaps this drama will match your appetite. This 24 episodes drama portrays a tragic love story of two lovebirds inside the palace. PS : Have your tissue ready before you click the play button.
So, which is the lucky drama that you choose to accompany you starting the new year??
Happy New Year 2012!
