Chae Rim will be making a guest appearance in the Chinese remake of All About Eve as lead actor Jang Hyuk’s precious first love!

Hit Korean drama All About Eve shot its main cast (Jang Dong Gun, Chae Rim, Kim So Yeon, and Han Jae Seok) to stardom back in 2000 and Chae Rim (adorably) expressed her delight at the opportunity to appear in the remake. I also like to think that she’s lending her support to Jang Hyuk as a Sunbae who has made her entry into the Chinese market much earlier with television series such as Princess Sheng Ping, Warriors of the Yang Clan, and Love at the Aegean Sea.



I have never watched a drama solely because of its writer’s track record. That’s because I hardly check up the name of the screenwriter when I like a drama, yeah ok I’m ashamed since I know how important the writing is in making the drama an enjoyable and quality one. So I’ve done some research and hopefully uncover some other dramas I’d like to try.   

Dramas italicised are those I’ve seen but not in full; those I watched to completion are in bold.  


Oh Soo Yeon / 오수연

A Star’s Lover (SBS, 2008), Wedding (KBS, 2005), Love Letter (MBC, 2003), Winter Sonata (KBS2, 2002), Four Sisters (MBC, 2001), Autumn Tale (KBS2, 2000), All About Eve (MBC, 2000), Feelings (KBS2, 1994)  



I think each of the 2 dramas in bold is sufficient to guarantee Oh Soo Yeon a mention on this page. I have raved about Winter Sonata in great detail here so I shan’t repeat myself. Autumn Tale is also one of my favourite classics, and is one of the few I watched with devotion. It is a tragic tearjerker yes, but it is one of thoes which will make you cry and remember – a very well done melodrama with a standard to look up to. Some of its famous dialogues have become abused in later melodramas to the extent they’re losing their magic already, so watch it remembering it was shown in that era (10 yrs back!). It’s viewership rating peaked at 46.1% and averaged 38.6% during the broadcast.
