Ok, sorry about now posting yesterday (talking to the two followers who actually might read every single post). I was busy yesterday and didn't have time to just sit down and write. So today's drama is The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry.
This drama is generally a really funny comedy. Yes, it is about 30 year old women wanting to find love and that generally tends to have a largely 25+ women viewers. There are some things that need to be discussed...Number one, the theme of women getting married over 30 is a huge and growing subject; no matter if it's in the US or Korea. Modern women are career women and have different goals than those of the past generations, but they are still women. Like the women in the drama, most of their lives revolve around their careers but they want love too. Number two, there is the theme of older women and younger man relationships combined with divorce and the strange entanglement of all the characters. And number three, probably the most shocking to me, they actually show a "sex" scene, they just don't imply it. Very scandalous compared to the kissing and hugging scenes...haha! This drama must be 19+.
Another thing, one of the main characters is the actor Kim Bum from Boys Over Flowers. That alone is draw enough fan girls to get good ratings.
Basic Synopsis: The drama is about three single women in their 30's who have lost a chance to get married earlier in life because of a career. Park Shin Young is a dedicated reporter/newscaster who starts a romantic relationship with a younger man. Jung Da Jung is a professional English/Korean interpreter who is desperate to find a husband, no matter what. And Kim Boo Ki is an attractive business owner who has sworn to give up getting married and instead focus on herself and her martial arts. All are given a fresh start at finding a new relationship, along with the drama and consequences of their actions.
