Smile Again (SBS, 2006)

Post by Bam-Bam » May 31st, '06, 09:35

I'm a big fan of Kim Hee-Sun, but the Series doesn't look that good.

[img]http://wiki.d-addicts.com/static/images ... gain_2.jpg[/img]

Lee DongGun plays the role of Ban Ha Jin who is a former orphan and a high school drop out. He does everything to make a rich chairman like him. But when he meets the girl he loved when he was younger his heart changes. This drama will starting filming in Mid April and the location will take place in Switzerland.

Yeah, I'm not feeling this one. I stopped at episode 1. Can someone who have seen the first few episodes share their impressions on the plot and maybe some character chemistries. :salut:

I just finished watching the first episode and I'm sooooooo glad it's not so typical XD I mean for once,the guy is the one who falls in love with the girl @ first which made me start to love LDG ( I liked him a bit in sweet 18) but I'm loving him now ^^
I would say so far the chemistry between the leads was alright,a few mentioned that KHS always acts the same way in her dramas,but I've watched her in Sad Sonata,and her role here is soo different and so far I'm liking it :mrgreen:
and the other lead that's from Alone in Love...well...I was hoping his acting would get better on this one,but I guess I'd have to watch more episodes to judge his acting :whistling:
so far this drama is really good! ( just hope they get out of high school soon,I hate those that drag a lot at the beginning) :glare:

-edit : Se7en's voice makes the drama even better :wub: :wub: :wub: hehe

I've watched episodes 1-4, but I'm not liking it so much. I like that it's not too typical, but I don't find it interesting enough. Maybe it'll get better, though.

I'm not too fond of this drama, though I think KHS looks pretty. This show can make fans for LDG and the other guy but that's about it. The scenes in Switzerland are pretty.

I've watched 4 episodes but I won't be watching any more.

I like this serie very much so far, also because it is a bit unusual. LDG is good in this one. KHS too. Don't know why so many people (at Soompi) think so badly about her.

I dont think I've ever came across a K-drama series that I thought was interesting the first few episodes....like duhhhhh.....because thats how most K-dramas start anyways..the storyline usually drags in order to take place before the suprises come in...........so what's the big deal with people already dissing on thise series?.... I personally think it's heading in a good direction..one, the stortyline as it is being unfolded is a bit different from the typical, two nothing's really predictable yet...& last of all three, KHS went from her usual sensitive too girly like characters to a tomboyish jumpy girl in this series......so to me that all adds up to be more on the interesting side....if you're asking me

I agree with Ajah. I thought the series was interesting from 1st episode, but then three later episodes weren't that impressing so i thought of quitting on it. Then at five, finally, i'm feeling the story found the right direction like in 1st episode. Its pace is just right, not too slow not too fast and story gets more exciting. For those of you thinking of quitting after episode 4, give the series a chance to redeem itself. :-)

The synopsis didn't really hit me and I could barely understand it. But, who knows maybe the drama has more to it than that. I do have to admit, I've read (mangas) and watched dramas which didn't really have such a worth-it summary but a very much must-see drama. Anyway, sometimes a great summary ends up being a flop once released. So, I do have to say it basically is all about the acting. Well, to me...

okay, back to the old KHS plz... this one makes her look like a 30 yr old trying to be an 18 yr old?!?! Plus, LDG... umm, let's not go there. lol Only thing good about this one is the scenery and the high quality dub.

I'm pretty sure that this one's leaning towards comedy... at least from the first few eps it looks like it, with that fat batter and KHS's sweat-stained towel, etc.

I really like this drama.
the story is different than most korean dramas.
the main guy character LDG :wub: plays KHS love and he plays this bad role where he wants to like i dont know mess up his friend's dad's company. he plays the good guy and the bad guy... little of both.
i like it.
its one of the first dramas where i cant predict whats going to happen at the end.

i like KHS in the movie wanee and juna. still remembered at first i did not recognise her when i saw the pictures from the movie. she looked so pretty in casual wear and natural makeup. so when i found that she's similar image in this drama, i must see... now in process of downloading and can't wait to start. but i hope she did act well too?

KBFD in Hawaii just started showing this drama last week, going 2 episodes per week. imo I guess people are having a hard time adjusting to LDG being a bad guy :scratch: (I know I am). It's also quite different from his other characters but at the same time it's nice to see him in a different type of role. Probably like many here I'm a big fan of KHS so I'll watch this series regardless.

This drama really showed how good Lee Dong Gun is as an actor. 8) His ability to portray different personalities at the same time really amazed me. :thumright: You can feel his emotions just by looking at his eyes. :roll He's not just some pretty boy, he can definitely act. :-) Want to see the proof? Watch this drama. :wink:

And the OST's really good. I recommend all of you to download it. :wub:

I had reservations about LDG and KHS's chemistry when this series was announced. But after 4 eps, surprisingly, their personalities blend well in the small screen. I like KHS's role here. She looks pretty and cute with her baseball/softball outfil. I like her here better than her role in Sad Sonata with Kwan Sang Woo. I am gonna continue watching it this wkend and see the progress of its storyline. So far so good.....

wow, the 3rd episode made my ears bleed. I'm german and I had to look at the subtitles several times to understand the german parts.
Even though, it's a pretty nice story till now.

I am part way through this drama and am loving it!!! I always liked Lee Dong Gun as a co-star in Sangdoo and even though I didn't care for Stained Glass he was good in that as well. I do love him in this! He is a really versatile character and he is really cute in this :) The storyline is unusual and it doesn't drag on with whiny melodrama (well...atleast not yet...) awesome underrated drama!

Isn't this drama just wonderful? Though in second half it gets a bit boring with all crying and angsty secenes. But still it's good. Not draggy and interesting. There are prety much unrealistic scenes when they meet on the hallway and time stops etc. that's annoying but overall it's just great. Really addicting one^^

I gotta love Lee Jin Wook. He is an amazing actor! Just with his eyes he can express so many things. But I liked him more in beginning, when he became "bad" guy he changed too much <_< Also the ending gave me a bit of a shock! I even started crying. But then all worrying was all for nothing xD

*re-awakening this thread*

'cause I'm watching it right now ^^
I'm at episode 4 right now...2 or 3 episodes are following today.... The first few episodes were pretty good.. I'm in love with the Monday Kiz' song and of course Seven's song....but I think, the OST in general is pretty good *got it before the drama...month ago :roll don't know why it took me so long to watch it*
I'm eager to know, if all this sport-related things are not getting draggy..
