Yesterday, I attended “A Poem A Day” press conference in Seoul’s Times Squre. I very much enjoyed my first Korean drama conference as I got to catch the vibe of the actors and listen to them with the other reporters. K-drama “A Poem A Day” premieres on Monday on tvN. Without further ado, here are three reasons why you should watch this “co-medical” drama.
1. Impress your date
In many TV shows, the protagonist sets the tone or moves story forward with narration. In “A Poem A Day,” poetry plays the role of narration. When you’re out to see cherry blossoms this spring, surprise your date or significant other with a few phrases of poetry you’ve memorized from “A Poem A Day.” It sounds corny but trust us. They’ll love it!
2. Quench your sitcom cravings
There haven’t been a lot of good Korean sitcoms in the past few years, perhaps with the exception of “Smashing on Your Back.” Defconn clarified during the press conference that “A Poem A Day” is not a sitcom. However, with six main actors and lighthearted story, it could surely pass as one. Plus, producer Han Sang Jae calls this a co-medical drama, because it’s a medical drama that stars no doctors but their coworkers, and it’s funny.
3. Or the second male lead syndrome
Let’s face it, K-drama lovers. We’re sure you’ve been swooned by the grim reaper in “Goblin” or Kim Woo Bin in “The Heirs,” even when you were rooting for the main guy and the girl to end up together. “A Poem A Day” has the sweetest second male lead, Shin Min Ho (Jang Dong Yoon). Min Ho is not career-driven at all, thanks to his wealthy background, but he is cute as hell. On the other side of the spectrum we have Ye Jae Wook (Lee Joon Hyuk), who’s a bit mysterious, too perfect to be true but seems coldhearted.
