What Attracts Viewers in 'The Accidental Couple'

2009/05/06 Source

"The Accidental Couple" finally began airing on April 29 amid high expectations, as it stars Hwang Jung-min , who is making his TV debut in his 14-year long acting career, and Kim Ah-joong, who is returning to TV dramas after a three-year hiatus.

A comedy romance about a star actress and an ordinary man who signs a six-month marriage deal, the drama has been drawing attention due to Hwang's vivid portrayal of a naive, genuine character named Gu Dong-baek. His acting is so natural that it makes viewers smile spontaneously and warms their hearts.

Viewers are also excited to see Kim Ah-joong play high-profile star Han Ji-su because she--well-known for her nearly perfect figure--will be able to display her sharp sense of fashion. Already in the first and second episodes alone, she has appeared in some 20 different outfits.

Another reason expectations have run high for the drama is that it is written by Jeong Jin-yeong-I and Kim Ee-chan, who are known to have a great sense of humor and have significant experience in writing sitcoms, and is directed by Ki Min-soo, who is famous for his affectionate yet intense direction.

The two writers said that they initially conceived the idea for the drama in the winter of 2002, but because the trend then was to feature a rich "prince" as the male protagonist, they found it hard to write a story about an ordinary man. "We are so pleased to finally get a chance to create such a character", they added. "And the drama does not intend to focus on a top star, so it will be more entertaining if viewers try to find out how different Han Ji-soo is from other actresses in other dramas".

Another attraction is the harmony between the supporting actors and actresses including Joo Sang-wook, Baek Sung-hyun, Lee Chung-ah, Jeon Mi-sun, and Kim Kwang-kyu. Singer Lee Soo-young also made her acting debut through the drama.

Dealing with romance that any ordinary person could dream of, "The Accidental Couple" is aired on KBS2 TV on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
