Do you have any Classic K-Dramas that you love? What are some of the best "oldies" that you've seen?
For me it is classic that aired in 2002. I discovered it early on when I first started watching K Dramas a year or so ago..
Winter Sonata is credited with causing the second wave of the Korean Wave and extending it to Japan and the Philippines. It improved the image of South Korea among the Japanese and set fashion trends throughout East Asia. It has also been adapted into an anime series and a stage musical. (Source: Wikipedia)
It main cast includes Bae Yong-Joon (Dream High, Hotelier), Choi Ji-Woo (Twenty Again, The Suspicious Housekeeper), Park Yong-Ha (The Slingshot, On Air - He sadly passed away in 2010 at the age of 32), and Park Sol-Mi (Law of the Jungle, Merchant Kim Mandeok)
This drama introduced me to my first "memory loss" scenario, my first melodramatic drama, and my first serious man crush! (Okay at that time it was a 3-way tie between Yong-Joon, Lee Min Ho, and Kim Hyun Joong, as I had also just seen BOF ^_^)
One thing about these old classics are the crazy plots! Especially in the melodramas! Anything and everything happens to these poor people!! Ready? Here's the plot:
The story begins when Joon-sang, the son of an eminent musician, moves to Chuncheon, a rural city in South Korea. As an extraordinarily talented student, Joon-sang is welcomed by his fellow students as well as his teachers, but remains a quiet, introverted teenager. As he intends to find out about his biological father, whom his mother claims has died, his search to find out more about his father is what made him want to move to the province. Having an identity crisis in adolescence because of the father he has never met, and blaming his mother for this, Joon-sang believes that no one truly loves him. On his way to school one day, Joon-sang's classmate Yoo-jin, while sitting next to him on the bus, falls asleep on his shoulder. Joon-sang soon falls in love with Yoo-jin, who opens her innocent heart to him. Their love, however, is cut short after Joon-sang is seriously injured in a car accident and, due to brain damage, suffers from amnesia, unable to remember anything prior to his accident. Joon-sang's mother, yearning for Joon-sang's love and respect, has Joon-sang brainwashed by a psychologist, so that Joon-sang will not remember his painful childhood as an illegitimate child. As a result, Joon-sang's memories prior to the accident are erased. Joon-sang's mother decides to move to the United States with Joon-sang, where he can start a new life under the identity of Lee Min-hyeong. His friends and teachers are told that Joon-sang is dead. Ten years later, Min-hyeong is an award-winning architect in the United States. He does not remember anything about his life in Korea. He is completely different, an open-minded person who cares about other people, including his mother. He returns to Korea and Yoo-jin sees him on the street, prompting her to put off her engagement to her childhood friend Sang-hyeok. Little does she know that Min-hyeong is dating her friend and past rival Chae-rin. The story's plot thickens when Yoo-jin's interior design firm is awarded a project by Min-hyeong's architectural firm, and has to work with Min-hyeong. Yoo-jin sometimes wonders if he is her supposedly dead first love Joon-sang.
Hahaha! Despite all that it was a great love story!
