Am hopelessly in love with Memories In Bali – new Korean show airing on AEC, Astro Channel 19, Saturdays and Sundays 3.30 p.m.. Yes, I’m shameless.
Synopsis: (taken from D-Addicts)
Lee Soo-jung (Ha Ji Won) is a travel agent who is seeking her good luck in Bali after a harsh and unforgiving childhood. She meets Jae-min (Jo In Sung), Kang In-wook (So Ji Sup), and Young-joo (Park Ye Jin) in Bali, three seemingly perfect people entangled in a triangle of love. When Lee Soo-jung finds herself back in Seoul, her desire for success leads her to seek Jae-min for a job, unwittingly setting off a course of events that further complicate the love triangle. What Happened in Bali is a drama that reveals the inner materialistic desires of people. It reflects upon the sometimes ugly (but truthful) side of man where nothing matters more than money.
So What Happened in Bali is a must-must-must watch. I already know the ending, thanks to someone who very accidentally blurted it out to me. I never really thought much of Korean dramas apart from Dae Jang Geum, but Memories of Bali shows a harsh side of life that really grasped me. 3 other reasons to watch it:
So Ji Sup, Ha Ji Won, Jo In Sung
