As the premiere day nears closer and closer, my anticipation rises for the Korean remake of the hit Taiwanese rom-com, Fated to Love You which is also going by the same name with the Korean remake. FTLY (TW) was a drama that tugged at my heart strings numerous times and was really brought together by the chemistry of Ethan Ruan and Chen Qiao En. The writing fell weak at times but Ethan and CQE really held the story together through their adhesive links. Since FTLY (K) is a remake, the writing here is not going to be able to sell it but rather, it will be the chemistry between the leads who can either make or break the drama. Leads Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara have collaborated before with sizzling chemistry but that was over ten years ago but I have my fingers crossed that their chemistry is still here if not more sizzling hot. *fingers crossed* Read more
