So my last entry railed against the two most anticipated dramas of the year, ‘Iris 2' and 'That Winter the Wind Blows’. The initial assessments were correct; these dramas suck.
However, there is a new drama that while not amazingly good, is a much better than originally anticipated: ‘Advertising Genius Lee Tae Baek’. The drama stars Jin Goo, Han Chae Young, Park Ha Sun, and Jo Hyun Jae and has all the elements of a great Korean drama: rich guy from powerful family, down on his luck guy with a good heart and hidden talents, old flames, hidden identities, and sparks flying all wrapped up in the world of advertising - which I actually do in my non-Kpop following life.
Like I said, not the greatest drama of all time but it’s what we want from dramas; romance, comedy, and some good looking people.
As George Costanza would say, “Chef Recommends!”
