Love Truly (2006)

Korean title: 진짜 진짜 좋아해 (Jin-jja Jin-jja Joh-ah-hae), which actually translates to Really, Really Like You

What’s popping:

There are so many Korean drama series on local TV these days I’m having trouble keeping up with them!

This one just kicked-off last night (June 20)! It looks promising and it involves a country chick named Bong-soon, the President’s son – who is a doctor – named Joon-won and a whole lot of Secret Service-type men.

In the first episode, Joon-won falls off a cliff (I think, as I missed that part) and is found by the innocent and sweet Bong-soon. She nurses him using traditional methods, which Joon-won thinks is rather silly…and smelly ;-).

A subplot revolves around a Secret Service-type agent named Bong-ki, whom we see having no problems using his authority to meet chicks. Also, the President just discovers that his son has gone missing. You’ve got to stay tuned for more.

The series stars Yoo Jin (유진), Lee Min-ki (이민기) and Ryoo Jin (류진).

The plot:

Bong-soon and her “grandmother” live in the hills (literally) and when the latter passes away, the young lady moves to Seoul to look for her parents. She finds a job at the President’s Blue House canteen and later, in the Blue House kitchen.

She falls for the President’s son, Joon-won, who is actually already married with a five-year-old! But his wife suffers from dementia.

However, Bong-soon has an admirer of her own, in the form of Bong-ki, one of the President’s security agents.

Wah, love triangle! Who gets the girl in the end?

Watch it:

  • 8TV (free TV, yay!)
  • 8.30 to 9.30pm
  • Monday to Friday from June 20 onwards
  • Mandarin with Bahasa Malaysia subtitles (bummer!)

I caught the 2nd episode yesterday and it was hilarious, especially the part where Bong-ki was chasing the chicken in the market. Ha ha...great stuff.

I only watch like 5 - 10 minutes of this every night while having my dinner. I think it's been 3 times this happened, and every night i watch, i see Jang Jun-won (the President's son who happens to be a hotshot doctor) cry!

One thing to note though - Korean men aren't afraid to cry! Infact, they do so very often. Must do an entry on this soon.

BTW...the MBC - Global Media website has quite a good synopsis and info on the characters of this drama.

I remember the bear! That thing was so cute. I have no idea where to find something like that here in NY.
I did like this show, but the crying was a bit overkill.
