The Greatest Love - Korean Drama

So every time I get out of school for a bit, I really want to be able to enjoy something fun. I love Korean dramas, and in all honesty just a tad more than Jdramas. Both can get a bit redundant, but it mostly depends on the actors. All that aside, I found one that I completely adore.


"The Greatest Love" is a story about a famous actor and a former female idol that lost her career due to scandal that was based on lies by someone else. (If you know anything about the Korean entertainment scene, you know that this can happen in the blink of an eye. Neitzens in Korea are completely unforgiving. No one has a solid reason to why.) The thing is that this drama could have been sad or even completely serious, but NOPE it's hilarious. Six episodes in and I have laughed till I cried in every episode.

Dokko Jin (Cha Seung Won) - Completely clueless social pariah to put it mildly. He has no understanding of human emotion, and is bluntly honest. He reminds me of the Grinch tilting his head at the whos wondering why they are just always so damn happy. He has no understanding of what being in love is and why this certain female will not fall in line or in love with him. Makes for some hilarious situations.

Ae Jung - Is the main female character. She was in a famous female idol group until they were disbanded. The reasons behind the disbandment hasn't been revealed yet, but you get the feeling it was a lie created by someone else in the group that effected her personally. As a result the rumors of it being because of her ruined her reputation and made her a pariah in the entertainment industry. The thing is she loves the entertainment industry and the show is based on her trying to persevere despite the odds stacked against her.

There are of course two other main characters, well co-mains. One is Kang Se Ri is an ex-bandmate and antagonist. Jenny is also an ex-bandmate still in Ae Jung's life.Yoon Pil Joo is an Chinese medicine doctor. They all have important roles in the show, but I won't ruin it for you.

I would say on a scale from 1-10 this would get a 8. ^ ^
Edit: IT was AWESOME. I loved the ending... the last 4 episodes were so wonderful! Just watch it :)
