[drama 2008] Powerful Opponents (강적들)

    The article about Choi Ja Hye joining is interesting; it states that she'll be a powerful love rival of Chae Rim's character in the drama. (catfights? Yay!) Does that mean Chae Rim's character'll be interested in the President's son afterall? Originally one would think the main pairing would be Lee Jong Hyuk/Chae Rim, if we look at some of the pictures and the order the cast is listed.

    [News] CR takes the challenging action scene


    [MoneyToday] 4/8/08

    Chae Rim's action scenes in her new KBS2 drama "Powerful Opponents" attract people's attentions.

    On 4/8, she herself performs in one scene where one big hand grabs her throat. According to the production team, "The situation could be somewhat dangerous, so we recommend use other ways of filming the scene." However, Chae Rim explains her aspiration to take the challenging action scene, "I'd like to directly perform the scene to express the right emotion."

    During the drama's press conference held on 4/7, Chae Rim says, "Bruises resulted from action scenes wouldn’t make me look like Dalmatian."

    Hmm... their relationship is really interesting. Looking forward for this love triangle.
    And the female lead is actually a bodyguard? That's very rare, i wonder whether Chae rim will be able to act as a strong girl...hmm.
    I like her perfomance on Dalja's spring and Lee Jin Wook is cute.

    Currently fangirling over Jasper Liu and Im Chan Hyung.

    I absolutely agree that CJH's very pretty, but she looks too young to be holding such a high profile post. Will she be a nice or bitchy rival to Chae Rim?

    i think she'll probably be playing the rich pretty girl that loves LJW since she's little.. and Chae rim is like the strong will girl that has a big heart that usually attracts rich men like the president's son because he never met such a girl...

    i hope they will add some comedy to this... it would be great
    i feel bad that the other actor has to play second leads again but i like LJW more...heheheh they will make a cuter pairing.. plus he's too cute...

    Thank you everyone for keeping this thread up-to-date with pictures, videos and news!

    I really love CR and I can't wait for this drama to come out (only a couple of more days). I'm actually really excited with CR pairing up with LJW. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with LJH, it's just that I'm more drawn to LJW's character. For some strange reason, I prefer the loud, boisterous guys to the the laid back ones (probably b/c I find them more entertaining to watch).

    From the recent previews, this series seems to have what it takes for success. It seems to have action, drama, political intrigue and most importantly, romance.

    The opening song is pretty catchy. I can't wait to hear more of the soundtrack. image
