Dream Cast: Little Women K-drama Adaptation


My third K-drama dream cast is for the beloved Little Women classic. This darling story would be awesome as a K-drama. I think it would be best for the story to be modernized.

It could be a contemporary story about four daughters growing up, struggling to make a living, while their Dad is overseas serving in a medical charity. They become friends with the neighbor boy, a lonely 3rd generation chaebol. The girls experience love, heartbreak and growing pains as they mature into little women.




Cast

kim ji won - jo march
han ye ri - meg march
park so dam - beth march
lee sung kyung - amy march
bae jong ok - marmee
park hyung shik - laurie
kim ji han - mr. brooks
lee sun gyun - professor bhaer

Ji-Won (Descendants of the Sun, Fight My Way) would be perfect as the spunky relatable Jo while Ye-Ri (Six Flying Dragons, Age of Youth) would be the more restrained, bossy eldest sister Meg. So-Dam (Cinderella and the Four Knights) would bring on the tears as an utterly lovable sweet Beth and Sung-Kyung (Cheese in the Trap, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo) would kill it as Amy, balancing both her youthful brattiness and eventual elegance and refinement.
Bae Jong-Ok (Spy) would be wonderful as the wise and ever loving Marmee. Park Hyung-Shik would kill the role of youthful, boyish Laurie. Ji-Han would be perfect as a very reserved but good man, Mr. Brooke. And Sun-Gyun would melt our hearts with his voice playing Professor Bhaer!

What about you - who would you choose in the roles of the Little Women characters? Any of my choices that you agree with or dislike? Let me know in the comments below!

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Ahem.
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
