Alice in Cheongdam-dong - Korean Drama 2012

Updated on October 12, 2014

Park Shi Hoo and Moon Geun Young, two gorgeous talented actor & actress are back to the small screen through a weekend romantic comedy drama Alice in Cheongdam-dong.

Many reported that this drama is the adaptation of "'Cheongdam-dong Oduri" novel. Because the title of this drama is similar with this novel and the main male character's profession is also the same (CEO of a luxurious fashion company), the author of this novel (Lee Hye Kyung) filed for plagiarism. But both SBS and the scriptwriters (Kim Ji Woon and Kim Jin Hee) denied this allegation and the only similarity between this drama & the novel is the title. (cr: Soompi Moons)

So, for sure, this drama won't be based on this novel; but it is unique and fresh. The writers have worked on this drama's script for 2 years and despite their 9 years difference, Park Shi Hoo & Moon Geun Young are stunning, sizzling OTP.

Alice in Cheongdam-dong premieres on 1 December 2012 (it follows makjang Five Fingers)
