Banjun Drama 101

What are Banjun Dramas?
Banjun Drama is also known as Banjeon Drama (반전드라마) or Reverse Drama. It is a series of short unrelated dramas aired by SBS (Seoul Broadcasting System) in 2006. The dramas are aired in a variety show. Various well known actors or artists guest star in each of the dramas. The dramas are usually hillarious and at times very corny. But it is good light-hearted viewing.

When was the last drama aired?
The last episode was aired on April 23, 2006.

How many Banjun dramas were aired in total?
I have no idea. But for a comprehensive list, visit soompi forums.

Do you have any sample dramas I could view?
I bet you could download these dramas and some software to view them. Just do a search in Google. I found this drama still on YouTube. It is one of Rain's Banjun dramas - a pretty old one. At the time this entry is published, the YouTube link is valid.

The Player (Nappun Namja) (9:23 mins) – Mandarin subtitles
Rain acts as Ji-hoon (incidently his real name) and is going out with this girl (Yumin), but blatantly flirts with another girl (Yu Hee-jin) at the same time. This one is very corny and has not much of a plot.

Who acts in these dramas?
Han Ji-hye, Eric, Yun Kye-sang, Li Hwi-jae, Bi, MC Mong, Andy etc. have acted in these dramas. For a more complete list, view soompi forums.

Are you sure that's Eric on the left? Doesn't the guy look more like Jeong Chan, who acted with Lee Seo-jin and Kim Jeong-eun in Lovers?

Hi Sakari,

Thanks for pointing that out. Actually i only guessed it was Eric. But looks like i am wrong. Will get the correct name after i do some checking. Thanks again!
