Do you have a Dream Drama?

Y’know, like in your head, you have the Perfect scenario, the Perfect male lead, the Perfect female lead, the Perfect second leads, and the Most Perfect story arcs, Ever? The kind of idea that makes you go, “OMGGGG I WOULD WATCH THAT DRAMA!!!!”???

Where if you could have it your way, this drama would be filmed and produced, stat, and immediately given a time slot on a Korean network, so that the entire dramaverse would be able to inhale the awesome, in unison?

We have some, and are always cookin’ some more!

What’s our inspiration?

Sometimes a dream drama scenario is inspired by an awesome drama that we just wanna see more of.

Sometimes it’s inspired by the awesomeness of an actor / actress that we could so imagine doing a particular type of role flat-out brilliant justice.

Sometimes it’s coz there’s so much wasted potential in a disappointing drama (or dramas) that we start dreaming up an alternative, wayyy better drama for the actors/actresses/scenario.

What about casting?

Our rule is: anything goes.

The world is our oyster when it comes to casting. We can have our dream cast, even if it means it’s Jang Dong Gun (circa 2000) romancing Kim So Yeon (circa 2013).

Coz, dream dramas need dream casts – even if we have to time travel to get ’em! 😉

    I always have this imagination of actor Kim Minseok play as someone who is catching ghosts in joseon era.

          Hm.. off the top of my head, I can’t think of any other strong Kim Min Seok fan, I’m sorry to say. If I do think of someone, I’ll be sure to let you know! 🙂

    My two favorites K – actors are Shin Min a and Ji Chang Wook. Granted I only started watching K Dramas in March 2019(10 SO FAR and 2 Taiwanese Dramas), I have seen Ji Chang wook in two of them and I have to say he is extremely talented and has a swagger about him that makes me swoon. I’ve only seen Shin Min A in one Kdrama so far but she exudes this cool personality and seems like a confident woman which i like. I do not have a plot and age difference between them might be an unwelcome factor but i would like to see my two favorite K-actors(so far), act together:)

    Hi ladies! I really like PBG, He was great in Tomorrow’s Cantabile and terrific in I remember You/Hello, Monster. Those are the only 2 I’ve seen so far. Sometime I’ll consider him for a drama.

    Right now I’m currently drafting and working on a sequel to Afterglow, bringing back most of the old cast and introducing a new main cast. I don’t want to give too much away at this point, but the writing and story is going fantastic and Jaime from Drama Noona is collaborating with me as well. She’s awesome. It will be another epic.

    Here’s a sneak peek at the intro: (It may be altered a bit, this is just for now.)

    Title: Afterglow 2: Embers

    Embers…“The name serves as a warning sign for them. An ember may be a tiny piece of dying fire, but it’s still an active burning force that can ignite and wreak havoc again.” (Quote taken from end of Part 1)

    6 years have passed since the tragic events on the Han River Bridge between The Afterglow team and renegade Fire-starter Kwang Dae. Each member has grown and moved on with their lives. Their hopes, dreams, and goals have been irrevocably changed as they strive to make the restored Afterglow Island a safe haven, and keep those of their kind under protection.

    They are Project Ember.

    Project Ember continues to secretly help those whose lives have been forever altered with powers and abilities that in this reality would only cause panic, fear and disgust. But when tragedy strikes one of their own, they’re soon to be exposed.

    A darkness has loomed since the meteor first emanated its destructive forces. Over the decades, human lives were altered and lost, and sides had to be chosen. Now those who lurk in the shadows are ready to rise.

    They are Dominion.

    Project Ember is thrust into another fight for survival, as members are forced to choose alliances. The stakes are higher. Dominion has gained massive wealth and power with a fearless leader who cannot die and a terrifying ability to steal the youth from others. Their ultimate conquest is the world.”

    I hope Lady G does. I’m missing KSH a lot and Moonlight reminded me of The Moon Embracing the Sun so much plus these two are quite the actors–nuanced and layered. Though, in my book, PBG is not as layered as KSH yet, but with the trajectory of his acting magic, as you said, I’m sure he’ll get there in no time. He just needs a good role, excellent writer and director.

    1. kfangurl

      He’s done wonderfully in Moonlight, and I can only see him getting better from here on out. Gooo Bogummy~! ❤ I can’t wait for his next drama – I hope he gets to be melty-dreamy. I like him best melty-dreamy 😍😍

      1. kaiaraia

        We’re on opposite sides here. I love him intent, badass and smoldery. Hmmmm… a knight in shining armor….like…ahh… Aragorn in LOTR. LOL!

    I suddenly wanted me a drama with Kim Soo Hyun and Park Bo Gum. I don’t care if it be a bromance like in Ouroborous or they be arch enemies. But I do wan’t it to be intense. I’m just imagining it, but am already dying of the awesome.

    1. kfangurl

      Ooh, that WOULD be pretty awesome. But then again, I’m enjoying PBG so much these days that I’d find ANYTHING awesome, as long as he’s in it, and delivering his particular brand of acting magic. 😍😍 Thanks for sharing your story idea – maybe Lady G might take you up on it sometime? 🙂
