1. The Miracle We Met
A roster of popular veteran actors stars in this new KBS drama. The fantasy-melodrama will tell the story of a fortunate banker (Kim Myung Min), who has been living a detached life with his family because of his career ambitions. He has slowly estranged himself to his children, causing an unhappy marriage with his wife (Kim Hyun Joo). In a magical mishap, the banker wakes up to a different life as a husband of Chinese restaurant owner (Ra Mi Ran), who lost her husband in an accident.
This KBS drama is creating a buzz since it will be a reunion drama for the writer-PD tandem of last year’s hit romantic-comedy Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. Based on their creative portfolios, viewers can expect to be gifted with wacky scenarios, plus touches of genuine life lessons that will leave lasting and addictive impressions.
The Miracle We Met is slated for Monday-Tuesday slot of KBS starting April 2.

A star-powered ensemble is set for SBS’ Greasy Melo with actors Jang Hyuk, Jung Ryeo Won and Lee Junho on-board to bring life to this new romantic comedy. The new drama whirls the story of a star chef who reaches rock bottom, leading him to work in a neighborhood Chinese restaurant.
The eat-pray-love concept is something which actor Jang Hyuk looks forward to. He will suit up the role of a gangster moneylender who runs the Chinese restaurant. Lee Jun Ho, who recently wrapped up the melodrama Just Between Lovers, appears to be taking the central character of a once popular chef.

Jung Ryeo Won, amazing in her last drama Witch’s Court, is set to play the role of an heiress who loves fencing and horseback riding. She also loves jajangmyun on the side which leads her connection to the characters of the story.
