I am praying that Wonder Woman and Superman will show up in Unemployed Romance like this poster suggests. Between this and Darth Vader, I think I’m set.
Remember this one? Yes, I confess I sort of forgot about this in the midst of the seasonal drama change over. One word: Heirs.
But look at these cutie patooties! Lee Young Ah and Nam Goong Min were adorable together during some early footage during script readings. Chemistry is not a problem here!
Plus this one sounds like it could be oodles of fun: She’s a struggling screenwriter forced to go on the dole. But who should be writing the cheques? Her ex from college, who thinks she’s bad luck and blames her for all the things that went wrong in his life.
I feel for her, but I also know that this sounds like a really great set-up for some laughs at her expense *rubbing hands in glee*.
Complicating matters are their respective friends, Wan Ha (Seo Joon Young) and Seon-joo (Bae Seul Gi) who you guessed it, form the other two corners of this love square.
Unfortunately, cable network E-Channel picked the wrong month to debut this drama so it’s bound to get lost in the shuffle.
This comes from a rookie production team, and I like the feel of an underdog drama that could. By the looks of the preview, it really might fill those shoes.
I don’t understand a word since it’s all in Korean but doesn’t it look endearingly cheap and cheerful, and fresh?
And maybe just a tad dark. No, I mean literally, like, underlit:
At only 10 episodes, I’m pleased that there’s less time to meander and muck things up.
And red is Nam Goong Min’s colour:
I’m not sure where else it’s airing but Dramafever looks like it will carry it. Fingers crossed it will pop up somewhere I can access.
