All About Eve

Okay, if I have just one drama that makes me fall in love with the male lead this is it. lol! This drama was shown in GMA7 years ago and although I was not fond of Kdrama at that time, I tried watching it because I love the main characters. But despite the fact that I like this drama I was not the type to religiously watch it, in fact I never come to knowing its ending. And then summer of last year it was shown in QTV 11 and eventhough I was a stay at home mom, again I was not able to watch the whole of it.

Every since I got addicted in watching Asian Drama through online streaming I have been searching for this drama. In fact I was even tempted to download it from Dramawiki but I cannot figure out how. lol! And its an Engrish sub (the term they apply to English subbing with some grammatical error).

Despite the subbing, still I am happy that I was able to watch this drama again. Here is its synopsis from Dramawiki :

This drama is about two girls, Jin Sun Mi (Chae Rim) and Heo Young Mi (Kim So Yeon). Sun Mi had a nice childhood and grew up with lots of love from her father. Young Mi’s mother left her when she was young and her father was a drunk who recently died. She had a hard childhood but never gave up and made it into college.

The synopsis is a little bit incomplete. Okay I will make my own synopsis but I do hope I won’t create a spoiler. Young Mi was in a way adopted by Sun Mi’s father. They never thought that Sun Mi will bring a lot of problems not only in their family but on Woo Jin’s (Sun Mi’s childhood friend) family as well. The drama starts on Sun MI’s being broken hearted towards Woo Jin liking Young Mi so she went to London. In London she met Hyong Chul. Who later on she will found to be the son of the owner of MBS (the channel in which she would become a newscaster) and her future manager. There are lots of twist and turn in this drama. Sun Mi’s finding Hyong Chul true identity, Hyong Chul professing his love to Sun Mi, Sun Mi falling in love with Hyong Chul with Young Mi on the side creating nasty tricks to get ahead of Sun Mi in terms of career and then trying to snatch Hyong Chul also.

I love the storyline of this drama. I love the role of Jang Dong Gun as Yun Hyong Chul. His patience and understanding of the situation of Sun Mi is something every woman would admire in real life. Of course I also love his looks.

From the Easy Go Lucky Look in London

To the MBS Manager look

This is one of the few things I admire about Korean actors…their hairstyle. They manage to have different hairstyle on different dramas. But really isn’t he cute ? And then you’ll pair him up with a young Chae Rim, so I am not surprised that many like this drama a lot.

This drama was shown in Korea yr 2000. Seven years after this is Chae Rim in Dal Jas Spring. Look at the hair and the makeup. lol!

Although I would say that All about Eve is definitely much better than Dal Jas Spring, the later is on different context. DJS presents Chae Rim as 30 something single women working in a home shopping network. Again she was broken hearted on the first few episode until Tae Bong (portrayed by Lee Min Ki) came . At first Tae Bong was presented as a free lancer but there is a twist in his identity and that added spice to the drama. DJS is more on the comedy and romance type with light drama. One thing I can say DJS = fun. Although it uses a line that was used in Kimura Takuya’s Pride. That is MAYBE…MUST BE.

If you’re interested on watching All About eve and Dal Jas Spring with English sub you can catch it on AZNV. Although there final episode of All about does not have English sub. Youtube also has a complete English sub episode of All about eve.

    I really loved this one. It shows believable events on what a person could do to achieve what he/she wants; being deprived of money and love. Right now, GMA 7 made a Filipino remake on All About Eve, and what do we expect? It is always been changed into true-to-life believable events to “magkapatid pala sila” drama. I have a feeling na gagawin magkapatid si Nicole and Erica, or maybe Nicole is the adopted child and Erica is the real one. Gosh, if they chould only stick to the true story. Mas makikita kung gaano kagaling mag remake ang Pilipino if it is the same story na ipo-portray na artista. Makikita kung ang remake ay success kasi kahit same ung story, kung magaling naman yung actors, they will not have problems sa ratings. Pero predictably, pinaltan nila yung story, which bores most of the fans of the original. i just hope Kenneth won’t be linked to Erika, because in the original, he didn’t like her in any way because he’s too focus to nicole’s kind heart and sweet charm.

    hi ac,

    all about eve is one of my all time kdrama favorite. and i am so dissapointed when i heard that gma is making a remake out of it. i know the filipino remake will definitely fail in comparison. not that i am putting our nationality down and favoring koreans. its just that most of the remakes are exaggerated. and most of the time draggy. well, i was thinking about the story especially when i saw some behind the scenes picture that shows two weddings. and i know the plot was twisted.i guess we will be seeing more remakes coming our way this 2009.

    anyway, thanks for taking the time to comment. i appreciate it.
