Premiere Watch: Curtain Contact, The Fabulous
This week we’re in for a treat, with the buzzy KBS romance drama Curtain Contact ultimately dropping, and a ~fabulous~ drama coming in from Netflix. Even though I’m certainly in the former camp (i.e., give me alllll the old college drama feels but with a new, crisp script), I cannot deny that The Fabulous appears like a dip into a genre exactly where Netflix seldom treads: actual romance?!
Time slot: Monday-Tuesday
Episode count: 16
Factors to watch: I am genuinely hunting forward to this a single — and not just for the reason that I enjoy the top cast. And not just for the reason that I’m excited for what appears to be an old-college drama setup, with a complex enjoy square and The Adore That Can not Be. And not just for the reason that it boasts a single of my favored stories of all time: a particular person pretending to be a further and then falling in enjoy with his new false life. But take all these factors, add the PD (River Exactly where the Moon Rises!), and add Noh Sang-hyun, and — properly — you will have a quite correct reading of my excitement level.
TLDR: Kang Haneul, Ha Ji-won, classic drama vibes, chaebol heirs, play-acting grandsons, the makings of drama greatness
Time slot: Friday (single drop)
Episode count: eight
Factors to watch: Chae Soo-bin is actually normally good — though scripts about life in the style sector are not — so we’ll have to see just how enjoyable this story is. With Netflix at the helm, it is higher on flashiness, sexiness, and production worth (the colors and costuming in the promo material alone have been good), but as to what type of a story will genuinely be told — your guess is as great as mine.
TLDR: Chae Soo-bin, generally shirtless Minho, style globe flashiness, Netflix
