Upcoming SBS weekend drama “Angel Eyes” held their official press conference yesterday at the SBS building in Mok-Dong. In attendance were the two main leads, Gu Hye Sun (who makes her return to acting after a two year hiatus) and Lee Sang Yoon (of recent drama Goddess of Fire) as well as Big Bang’s Seungri and cast members Kim Ji Suk, Kong Hyung Jin and Jung Jin Young and PD Choi Mun Seok. Angel Eyes is set to hit our tv/computer screens for the first time tomorrow night and will be replacing “Thrice Married Woman“, the drama has been scheduled to air 20 episodes.
Angel Eyes is the story Yoon Soo Wan (Gu Hye Sun) and Park Dong Joo (Lee Sang Yoon) who were each other’s first loves, however they had to part ways due to difficult family circumstances, the two meet each other again 12 years later. Soo Wan is a legally blind woman who undergoes a transplant operation to regain her sight, after her surgery she decides to embrace life and becomes an emergency rescue worker, Dong Joo meanwhile is a surgeon at a local hospital who wants to become a firefighter like his father. Kang Ha Neul and Nam Ji Hyun guest star as the younger versions of the two leads.
The drama does interest me storyline wise, and Seungri and Kang Ha Neul are the draw cards for me, however I’ve heard that Hye Sun’s acting is a bit dodgy, but then again everyone has different tastes, and the story line does seem very tear inducing, so I will have to wait and see. There also seems to be a recent slew of medical related dramas going around, most recently TvN’s Emergency Couple and the upcoming Dr Stranger, starring Lee Jong Suk which has started filming.
