Bel Ami / Pretty Man
Here comes another new drama following KBS2's Secret Love which ended last week. Pretty Man will start airing this Wednesday, on the 20th. It's about this 'pretty man' who's ambitious because of his 'beautiful' appearance.
Dokgo Ma-Te (Jang Geun-Suk) is the most beautiful man in the world. He is also an ambitious man and wants to make a lot money using his beautiful appearance. Dokgo Ma-Te meets Hong Yoo-Ra (Han Chae-Young), the ex-daughter-in-law of a rich family. Hong Yoo-Ra recognizes Dokgo Ma-Te's ambitions and becomes his mentor. Hong Yoo-Ra then gives Dokgo Ma-Te a mission to seduce 10 different women. The women have all succeeded in different fields and Dokgo Ma-Te is to glean their special abilities.A strange woman then appears in front of Dokgo Ma-Te. Her name is Kim Bo-Tong (IU), an ordinary girl from poor background. She has a huge crush on Dokgo Ma-Te. Can she make Dokgo Ma-Te love her?
I'm interested in this drama because IU's in it - and since I didn't get to watch her act in Dream High or You're the Best, Lee Soon-Shin, I figured I'll just watch her acting in this drama. Below are the main characters for this drama ^~^
Jang Geun Seuk as Dokgo Ma-Te
IU as Kim Bo-Tong
The last I've seen of Jang Geun Suk is in k-drama You're Beautiful; he's still very charming and lovable even though he's so skinny and uses that eyeliner all the time. I kind of missed the days when he's a bit chubby and has shorter hairstyle like he did in his movie Baby and Me. He's so handsome back then ;__; Although he is still handsome now, but that long wavy hair certainly makes him 'prettier' and looks like a girl. Please return to your former self, Oppa!
As for Han Chae Young, I loved her so much back in the k-drama Delightful Girl Choon Hyang. She's already so mature now, since she got married and have children. In that drama, she was this sloppy girl, but now in this new drama she's the elegant one. Hope to see her amazing acting soon :))
Let's hope it will be a good and decent drama ^~^
