“I Miss You”, In the Sad Autumn Times
Howling autumn winds, drifting fallen leaves, the aura of sadness is spreading. Who are you missing? This is the positioning of the newest Korean MBC drama, “I Miss You”, in which Park Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye play the lead roles. “I Miss You” will be the drama that takes over “Arang and the Magistrate” starting October 31st (which has later been confirmed to start in November 7th). This time, Koreans are done with time travel, comedy and Gangnam style, they are returning to the traditional romantic drama!
“I Miss You”, The Reappearance of Korean-style Sadness
The evolution of Korean drama began with the early “Winter Sonata” sadness, the middle “Full House” cheerfulness, and to the recent “Rooftop Prince” time travel. Just as the audience thought that according to past trends Korean drama will continue with the theme of time travel, it reverts back to the traditional sad romance drama, and thus the birth of the autumn drama “I Miss You”.
The story of “I Miss You” is very ‘Korean’ as always: A couple, with moving first-love memories back when they were 15, meets after they had grown up and the stories that unfolds due to it. The screenwriter Moon Heejung, who wrote “Smile, You” and “Listen to My Heart”, is collaborating with director Lee Jaedong who directed “Thank You”. Park Yoochun and Yoon Eun Hye are playing the adult version of this pure love couple – Detective Han Jungwoo who lives life while carrying memories for his first love and fashion designer Lee Sooyeon who though looks glamorous on surface, live from day to day with pain that others do not know. And the actor and actress that play the 15-years-old couple are Yeo Jingoo and Kim SooHyun, both known through “The Moon that Embraces the Sun”. In addition, Park Yoochun’s management company, C-Jes, has another actress, Jang Miinae, taking part in “I Miss You”, in which she will be playing the online manga artist Kim Eunjoo who secretly has a crush on Park Yoochun. Other than that, “I Miss You” has experience actors and actresses such as Jeon Gwangryeol and Do Jiwon, making the star-filled cast even more bling-bling.
