A Thousand Day Promise - Korean Drama 2011
SBS Melodrama starring Kim Rae Won & Su Ae
SBS melodrama Thousand Day Promise also known as A Promise of One Thousand Days was a Monday & Tuesday night drama.
Both the production director and writer from SBS Favorite Drama Life is Beautiful teamed up together to bring us the newest Korean romantic melodrama.
One of my favorite actress Su Ae whom I fall in love after her mellow but tough brilliant portrayal of Yoon Hye In in Athena, will be back this time as a lead character in this drama. Her mellow soft face supported with her acting will be perfect as she'll be playing a woman who is slowly losing her memory.
This drama is the comeback drama for Kim Rae Won who served 2 years mandatory military and was released late August 2011. I really love him in 2008 drama Gourmet, so I'm really glad to have him back. This time, he is playing a man who'll be staying at his lover's side and tackle their love obstacles as she might no longer remember who he is.
Beside Su Ae and Kim Rae Won, huge number of A stars will be staring in the drama people expected to be one of the most beautiful melodrama of the year such as Kim Hae Sook & Lee Sang Woo (both from Life is Beautiful), Jung Joon (City Hunter, Coffee House), Park Young Kyu (Protect the Boss) and child actors Han Bo Bae (Sign, Dr Smile) and Yang Han Yeol (Ding Dong from Best Love).
Aww a sweet love melodrama is definitely my forte.
Are you excited for new SBS melo-drama, Thousand Day Promise?
