Couple or Trouble (2006)

Korean title: 환상의 커플 (Hwan-sang-eui Keo-peul) a.k.a Fantastic Couple

What’s popping:

Oh Ji-ho’s (오지호) a hunk. Nevermind if he was an unknown actor for the first 7 years of his career. What matters is that we now know about him through this comedy where he stars opposite Han Ye-seul (한예슬).

Now that Hyunbin’s Snow Queen has ended its run, this drama has taken over the slot at 8TV. I only managed to watch an episode (last night) and it was pretty hilarious. I totally enjoyed the waltz Anna (Han) performed while in a drunken stupor.

And how about that Chul-su (Oh), huh? A small-time construction business owner who lives with his three nephews, the man lets Anna stay with him after realising she has developed amnesia! However, Anna, who has a diva attitude, proves to be one big pain in the @$ to Chul-su.

The plot:

Oh Ji-Hunk: A reason to tune in to the show every night.

Inspired by the 1987 American flick Overboard (starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell) , the drama depicts how amnesia changes the perspective of a spoilt, foul-mouthed American-bred heiress (Anna).

Watch it:
  • Replaces Snow Queen
  • 8TV (Astro channel 708) – free TV, yay!
  • Every Monday to Friday
  • 8.30pm to 9.30pm
  • Dubbed in Mandarin with Bahasa Malaysia subtitles. Not my fav audio-subs combination, but Oh Ji-ho’s so fine, I might just tune in again tonight.

I didn't know this was based on "Overboard" That is one of my favorite movies ever! I'm curious about it now.
