K-drama Review: Another Miss Oh / Oh Hae Young Again (2016)

Hi guysss! I just finished another 2016 Korean Drama in a week and it is "Another Miss Oh" a.k.a "Oh Hae Young" again :) Actually I wasn't familiar with the casts but I gave a try haha.
After watched several episodes, I just figured out that the lead male is a member from Shinhwa and femlae lead is also a singer named Seo Hyun Jin :D

Another Miss Oh Review, Oh Hae Young Again Review, Eric Mun Drama, Seo Hyun Jin
Another Oh Hae-young (또! 오해영) is a South Korean television series starring Eric Mun, Seo Hyun-jin, Jeon Hye-bin. It replaced Pied Piper and broadcast on cable network tvN on Mondays and Tuesdays at 23:00 (KST) for 18 episodes from May 2, 2016 to June 28, 2016.

Another Oh Hae-young was the most successful cable TV drama in Korea ever and tvN's most popular drama, surpassing Cheese in the Trap's popularity and making it the highest rated Monday-Tuesday show. Such was the popularity received by the show both locally and internationally that not only was the drama extended by 2 episodes, 2 special episodes, broadcasting special moments, interviews from cast and behind the scenes, were aired too.

Park Do-kyung (Eric Mun) is a sound director in his 30s. A year ago, his bride, Oh Hae-young (gold) (Jeon Hye-bin), disappeared on their wedding day leaving him miserable. One year after that incident, Do-kyung was told that Hae-young is going to marry a young entrepreneur named Han Tae-jin (Lee Jae-yoon). Do-kyung exacted revenge by sabotaging Tae-jin's business leaving him bankrupt. However, the woman who has the name Oh Hae-young (soil) (Seo Hyun-jin) was actually just a stranger who coincidentally has the same name with the other Oh Hae-young (gold) who left him.

Coincidentally, Oh Hae-young (soil) is the girl that Do-kyung had been seeing lately in his visions, and he sees snapshots of the future with her in it.

Tae-jin was soon to be sent to jail due to bankruptcy, and hence before his imprisonment he meets fiancée, Hae-young (soil), and tells her that he doesn't love her that much to marry her and wants to call off their wedding. Truthfully, Tae-jin was lying and his true intentions was to let her go so that she will gain happiness.

Amidst all of this, Do-kyung and Hae-young (soil)'s lives turn as they cross paths. After sharing similar unfortunate experiences of being dumped before their weddings, the two of them got even closer. Will Do-kyung start to fall in love with Hae-young (soil)? But, will Hae-young (soil) look at Do-kyung the same way when she finds out that he is the one who ruined her wedding? Is it a love story between two people who shouldn't be destined to be together? Or will Do-kyung's visions of her actually prove that they are meant for each other?

Press conference

Ordinary Oh Hae Young & Pretty Oh Hae Young during their high school days

IMO, Jeon Hye-Bin (Pretty Oh Hae Young) is really similar with Kim Tae Hee *__*

Seo Hyun Jin & Eric Mun

Each of them has unique and interesting personality :D
I think I become a new fan of Seo Hyun Jin, her acting is really gewwwd!

Overall Thoughts:
Now I know why this drama contains much marriage issues and passionate kisses, it is because it aired before midnight; means this drama is supposed to be watched by adults only (if you're teenagers, please skip this drama :p)
I think it's a nice drama. I really enjoyed the whole episodes and what I like most from this drama is relationship between Oh Hae Yeong (ordinary) with her parents. Her parents often didn't understand their daughter's mind, but they chose to believe in her and help her in the most difficult times :') I also like Oh Hae Young's mom who was also played as Park Shin Hye's mom in The Heirs. Her acting is great! :DD

Soo Kyung (Do Kyung's sister) and Jin Sang made a good couple as well :p I like how Soo Kyung often showed her martial arts skill LOL. This was also the first appearance of Young Ji (KARA's youngest member) as Anna and I think her acting was quite good as a rookie :D This drama also gave me much inisght about sound producing job, which is really interesting :D

Overall, I like this drama :D Glad it ended happily (though actually I support Hae Young - Tae Jin couple more :p) and their OST is great as well!~ ^___^

Rating: 7,5 / 10

Have you watched this drama?
Thanks for reading~ ^_^
