It starts April 27th. It seems too soon, as it feels like the cast and the main storylines were finalized a couple of weeks ago. That worries me, as I have a feeling the first few episodes will be very rushed. Also, a few things have been changed. The title is now The Greatest Love.

The synopsis is as follows: Ae Jung(Gong Hyo Jin) is a female band member who is already over the hill. When she enters a variety show to pretend marriage with the top star (Cha Seung Won), she gets entangled in a love triangle along with her bandmate (Yoo In Na). Yoon Pil Joo (Yoon Kye Sang)is a doctor of oriental medicine who has no interest in the entertainment industry but meets Ae Jung by chance and falls for her.

I have to admit, the synopsis worries me. GHJ's character is no longer an actress, but an "over the hill" (she's 31 in real life!) singer. The reminds me of I Am Legend, and not in a good way. And, there's a pretend marriage? Oy! Those are getting old, Korean Drama Writers. I'm also hoping the start date is wrong, because I think they haven't even started filming.

You know, I used to love the Hong Sisters, but I feel that they are doing too many dramas too close together. And, that is leading to them falling back on bad ideas and going more and more for the cliches. We'll see where this goes.
