With better marketing and a larger audience, these dramas could have made it big.
1. Kill it
Kill It is one of the dramas starring Jang Ki Yong. Despite the combination of a consistent acting and a good script to create a high-quality drama, the series could not be made due to a lack of noteworthy names, heavy themes and a dark theme.
On the TV series Jang Ki Yong, she starred Kim Soo Hyun, who leads a double life. He is a veterinarian on a daily basis. He is an elite killer at night. He was trained to be a cold-blooded killer at a young age. In the past, he killed his former lover Do Hyun Jin (played by Nana), a policeman. They collided and the secrets of his past were revealed.
2. When the weather is fine
Viewers often find that Park Min Young’s acting is monotonous when only starring in romantic comedy dramas and playing the city girl who works in an office and has personality traits, while most often skip her role in “When It’s Alright”.
In this 2020 drama, the actress plays Mok Hae Won, a city girl who returns to her hometown after a family turmoil. In his travels, he meets Eun Seob, the person who will lead them both back to painful bits of memory. The series was highly acclaimed for its “healing” elements, but its slow pace and lack of climax distanced the show from other “drama-filled” shows in 2020. This reason triggered a series of his ratings and subsequent media coverage and social media discussions.
3. A smile left your eyes
“A smile has left your eyes” is a remake of the famous Japanese show. With an already excellent storyline and cast to guarantee success, the show still cannot be a breakthrough.
The film tells about the complicated relationship between the three main characters: Kim Moo Young (Seo In Guk), a dangerous man commonly known as a monster, Yoo Jin Gang (Jung So Min) – a woman with a warm heart who wants to be by Moo Young’s side sharing his pain and Detective Yoo Jin Wook – Yoo Jin Gang’s brother who always confronts Moo Young.
4. Happy romance
Lucky Romance stars Hwang Jung Eum as Shim Bo Nui and Ryu Jun Yeol as Je Soo Ho. Bo Nui fights to support his sick sister who is in the hospital. Bo Nui has a chance to work for Soo Ho, CEO of a gaming company. A strong believer in luck and fortune, Bo Nui discovers that Soo Ho plays an important role in saving her sister. She walks over and makes Soo Ho develop feelings for her.
Overall, it’s a mellow, romantic series perfect for entertainment. However, with Hwang Jung Eum still starring in the romantic comedy, the audience is not excited about Lucky Romance, resulting in a sadly low rating.
5. Dali and conceited prince
“Dali and Cocky Prince” features Kim Min Jae and Park Gyu Young in a comedy and sweet series that promises to take viewers on a “healing” journey. Regarding the set design and characteristics of the series, the drama has received wide acclaim. Unfortunately, without the presence of big names in the industry, the program couldn’t develop.
The series tells the story of Jin Mu Haka, a born businessman despite his not very impressive education. He meets Kim Dali (Park Gyu Young), a visiting researcher and later Artistic Director of the Cheong-song Art Museum. He loses all his inheritance from his deceased father and must find a way to maintain the art museum. Jin Mu Hak lends her a large sum of money, creating a creditor-debtor relationship, which slowly turns into love.
After 5 great but unsuccessful Korean dramas, “When the Weather’s Fine” Min Young’s Park is the most unfortunate first time he has appeared on KBIZoom.
