Pretty Boys in KDrama: My early Christmas gifts

It's beginning to look like Christmas... in KDramaland!

I've been really left behind with my KDrama addiction these last few months, seen only a few here and there. Maybe that's why the KDrama gods gave me my 3 ultimate oppas in their own KDramas before the end of 2013 to bring me back to my senses.

Jang Geun Seok will play title role Pretty Man, couldn't agree more. I don't have any details yet but it will air sometime in October.

Jung Il Woo will have a Weekend Drama titled Gold Rainbow with UEE. I'm not particularly keen with a weekend drama (50 eps) and UEE but if my Il Woo oppa is there, nothing can stop me.

Kim Soo Hyun will play alien in The Man From Another Star. I'd want to be abducted if i'll be with him forever.

Then there's also Lee Min Ho, Jung Yong Hwa, Lee Jong Seok, Kim Bum, Kim Woo Bin among other pretty boys with current or coming KDramas. I really need to buckle up as it will be an exciting ride, fangirling style ;)

The story revolves around a woman who can see ghosts and a man who tries to protect her, and is described as a drama with horror and romantic elements infused together. Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub) is a miserly, greedy and conceited CEO, who measures all human relationships through money. Meanwhile, Tae Gong Sil (Gong Hyo Jin) is a melancholy and tearful assistant, who is able to see ghosts after an accident and thus suffers from insomnia. She lives a very reclusive and closed-off life due to her ability. 

The story is being touted as “soul healing” drama that brings together very different types of people: one who can see and hear things that no one else in the world can and another who only hears and see things he wants too. As Joo Joong Won starts to believe in Tae Gong Shil’s claim of being able to see ghosts, these two people will grow together in faith and in character.
