She is an art student but not the ‘Arts’ that we have in India. Here it is literally arts that involve artistic stuff like drawing and painting). She is leading a normal life when suddenly her family informs her of a marriage proposal they received from the Royal Family of Korea. Her grandfather had once helped the King of Korea who in return promised to have his grandson, the future heir to the throne, marry his granddaughter. The Kings’ grandson Crown Prince Lee Shin (Joo Ji Hoon) and Chae Kyung attend the same school. Just a few days ago, Chae Kyun had overheard the prince propose his girlfriend Min Hyo Rin (Song Ji Hyo) who rejected him to pursue a career in ballet, leaving the prince no choice but to marry the one his family chooses for him. He isn’t very fond of Chae Kyun as she witnessed him getting rejected by his girlfriend. Chae Kyun initially refuses to marry the prince but her family’s poor financial condition forces her to say yes to the arranged marriage. Chae Kyun and Lee Shin can’t stand each other but comply only to please their families. The royal house and their rules do not suit Chae Kyung who feels lonely and depressed. She finds support in Lee Shin’s cousin, Lee Yool (Kim Jung Hoon) who lends an ear to her woes. He, however, starts falling for her and makes no attempts to hide his feelings. On the other hand, Hyo Rin realizes her mistake of rejecting Lee Shin and returns to Korea giving up the scholarship she received to study abroad.

Tae Kyung is the leader of the boy band and is totally against the idea of adding another member to the band which is why he dislikes Mi Nam and doesn’t accept him easily. Tae Kyung finds out the truth behind Go Mi Nam and threatens to expose her. She begs him to let her stay and assures him that she will leave soon. Her stay with the band is a journey full of fun, chaos, and love angles.

This is one of the few dramas that I have seen multiple times. If I repeat a drama it clearly means that I adore it and it’s totally worth it.

Drama Review – Dr. Romantic, Teacher Kim

Synopsis – Dr. Boo Yong Joo (Han Suk Kyu) is a genius doctor known to have the ‘hand of God’ when it comes to treating patients. He once worked at Seoul’s biggest hospital, Geodae before he was fired unceremoniously by the upper management. He then disappeared from the medical circuit only to be discovered years later for working as a doctor with Doldam hospital under the name of Master Kim. As the Chief Surgeon of Doldam hospital, he takes Dr. Yoon Seo Jung  (Seo Hyun Jin) and Dr. Kang Dong Joo (Yoo Yeon Seok) under his wings and trains them to be better doctors. (OK, my synopsis makes the show seem a little boring but take my word, this drama isn’t boring even for a second.)

Pretty is the flower that blooms in the harshest of conditions. Similarly, heart-warming is the love story that blossoms in a hospital teeming with all kinds of patients.
