Mark your calendars. January 2015 has a few promising new dramas to look forward to. And these dramas feature some favorite k-drama stars.
The new k-dramas start out on January 7, with “Kill Me, Heal Me,” starring proven k-drama couple Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum, who previously impressed audiences in “Secret Love.” In “Kill Me, Heal Me,” he plays Cha Do Hyun, a man with seven distinct personalities. She plays a first-year psychiatrist named Oh Ri Jin. The drama also features Park Seo Joon as her brother Oh Ri Eon and Oh Min Suk, who will play Cha Do Hyun’s cousin and rival.
Two new dramas start on January 9th.
“Spy” is based on the Israeli drama “The Gordin Cell,” but while it’s a spy drama, it’s also a family drama. In “Spy,” JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong plays a genius analyst with the National Intelligence Service, who discovers his mother is a sleeper spy for North Korea. His mom, played by Bae Jong Ok, suddenly gets orders to bring her son to North Korea. Mother-son relations will never be the same.
Also due on January 9th is “Heart To Heart.” Chun Jung Myung and Choi Kang Hee star in what can be described as yet another romance drama about a character with a problem and the person who treats it. She plays a very shy woman who blushes furiously in social encounters. As a result, she avoids social interactions. He plays the psychiatrist that helps her but he has some problems of his own. The drama also stars Lee Jae Yoon and Wonder Girls’ Ahn Sohee.
The other promising dramas don’t have an exact start date because they both replace popular dramas.
“Hyde, Jekyll and I” follows “Pinocchio,” which is so popular it may be extended by a few episodes.
The drama about a man with two distinct personalities stars Hyun Bin and Han Ji Min. He is the director of an amusement park that she works at. And when he is taken over by his bad personality, he can be mean. But somehow she falls for both of his personalities. Sung Joon, Han Sang Jin, Girls Day’s Hyeri and Lee Suk Hwa round out the cast.
“Shine or Go Crazy” will follow "Pride and Prejudice,” which is due to end Jan. 12. But the prize-winning drama about prosecutors is also popular and could get extended.
“Shine Or Go Crazy” is the only historical drama on the list. The fusion fantasy drama has a stellar cast, featuring Jang Hyuk in the leading role of a haunted prince who worries that he will bring bloodshed on his nation. He meets a princess who no longer has a kingdom but she does have the power to alter his fate. Oh Yeon Seo plays the princess.
