안녕하세요! (Hello! — an-nyeong-ha-se-yo)
I’m so excited!!! I received the four Korean drama books I ordered!
I purchased them from The Korean Book Center in Los Angeles. It’s the oldest Korean bookstore in the L.A. The store is located in the Koreatown Plaza. The owner, Mark Choi, was extremely nice and answered all my questions!
Two of the books are based on 2012 television shows and the other two books are based 2012 movies.
Book 1: 풀하우스 테이크 2 – Full House Take 2 (Pulhauseu Teikeu). The romantic comedy is about a fashionable Taekwondo teacher, Jang Man-ok (which means “Full House”), who becomes a stylist for a popular boy idol group TAKE ONE. Through a plot twist, she ends up living with superstar and temperamental idol, Lee Tae-ik, who inherited a luxurious mansion from his deceased parents. The mansion’s name: “Full House.” Jang Man-ok ends up falling for both idols, Lee and Won Kang-hwi — who in turn fall for her.
*Jang and Lee’s hair drove me crazy! I quickly got over it and into the story. Fortunately, they changed hairstyles toward the end! I loved the story^^*

Book 2: 늑대소년 (Neukdae Sonyeon) – A Werewolf Boy. The fantasy romance is about a teen girl, who goes to the country for health reasons. While there, she discovers a dangerous, but kind teen boy — who just happens to be a werewolf. The movie was featured at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival and the Busan International Film Festival. The movie stars: Song Joong-ki and Park Bo-young.
Book 3: 신의 (Shin-eui) – Faith aka The Great Doctor. The historical fantasy romance is about a royal guard leader from the Goryeo Dynasty (1300s), who kidnaps a modern-day plastic surgeon to save a princess…by traveling back in time. The drama stars: Lee Min-ho and Kim Hee-sun.
*This is a fun show. It’s action-packed, romantic and Kim Hee-sun has super funny dialogue.*

Book 4: 반창꼬 (Banchanggyeo) – Love 911 aka Bandage. A romantic dramedy about a fiery doctor who falls in love with a dedicated firefighter with a troubled past. The movie stars: Han Hyo-Joo and Ko Soo.
*Haven’t seen this one, either. But the trailer looks awesome! So, I had to get the book!*
