A Thousand Kisses - Korean Drama 2011
A Thousand Kisses, a new romantic family weekend drama initially attracted me because of its complicated three couples' relationship. This drama portrays the differences in older woman - younger man and younger woman - older man relationship.
A single mother with young son falls in love with a man younger than her.
Her sister, who has a cheerful and optimistic personality, falls in love with a man much older than her (who happens to be her sister lover's cousin).
After watching the first 2 episodes, I honestly already feel the chemistry between the two couples. And I can't wait to watch the rest of the episodes. Yes, it's a long drama (50 episodes), so they will definitely drag the storyline by involving the couples' ex-lovers.
