Miss Kim Makes 1 Million (파란만장 미스 김 10 억 만들기 / Paranmanjang Miseu Kim 10 Eok Mandeulgi -2004)

Also known as:
Miss Kim's Making One Billion Won Project / Miss Kim's Adventures in Making a Million (KBFD) / Troublemaker Miss Kim (YesAsia) / Ms. Kim's Million Dollar Quest
Miss Kim Makes 1 Million
Kim Hyun Ju as Kim Eun Jae
Ji Jin Hee as Park Moo Yeol
Kim Sung Ryung as Suh Woo Kyung
Park Gun Hyung as Yoo Young Hoon

On her wedding day Kim Eun Jae is left standing at the alter by her groom, Yoo Young Hoon, for wealthy Suh Woo Kyung. Her wedding photographer, Park Moo-yeol, is a rich playboy who helps Eun-jae avoid embarrassment by pretending to be her husband. Soon after Moo-yeol's family goes bankrupt. The family home will be sold if he can't come up with money quick. Eun Jae meanwhile is convinced that if she becomes wealthy Young Hoon will come back to her.

Eun-jae and Moo-yeol decide to join forces. They move in together and invest in moneymaking schemes one after the other. Making money unfortunately isn't as easy as they had hoped. As outside forces (and Woo Kyung) line up against them, the two begin to realize that though they may be unlucky in money they are very lucky in love.

Another Korean drama that I especially liked. The love triangle/quadrangle, whatever you want to call it, wasn't too overly intense to make me angry or give me an upset stomach. Those kinds of dramas put me off to the point that I don't finish them or don't even attempt to start them.

This drama was intensely funny. They weren't the overly gross type of funny that drowns in body function noises or puking.

I tried watching this before but have no clue what put me off. I'm going to assume that it was the viewing site that brushed me off. If the subbing is atrocious, the story becomes more of a chore to follow. I happened to find a decent site and the subbing was actually *gasp* in adequate English.

I don't know how many times I have said this but I hate having to "translate" English subtitles into decent readable English.

You'll fall in love with the main characters of Miss Kim and Moo-yeol. I don't know why but I actually loved the storyline. It wasn't overly too intense and the funny moments kept the pace up without getting boring. I watched this all in one day and a half (I have to sleep eventually...LOL!)

Take a peek at Ji Jin Hee. He's so cute!
