    1 more week before this drama starts airing... can't wait. The posters show that HJS is gaining some weight back compared to his appearance in the "Lobbyist". I hope his role ended up with one of the girls living happily ever after.

    They look like movie posters and the cast is simply amazing. HJS is definitely looking healthier here than in Lobbyist =)

    I hope to see more grey areas rather than simply having clear cut "evil" or angelic characters fighting for HJS' affections.. And I'll pray hard that this won't be another melodrama like Bad Love. image

    looks like a serious drama. i hope LHN would be a joy to watch.

    i love the concept of a villain lead. KMM did a great job in White Tower... i'm expecting to see KJS's strong and greedy character as well..
    looking forward : Oh My Lady!

    Jahye, have you read the synopsis?

    Sorry, I make it a habit not to read storyline synopsis or character descriptions because they're notorious for spoiling the whole drama.

    Woman of the Sun rounds out the three-way ratings feud
    May 23rd, 2008 // by javabeans

    Another Wednesday-Thursday drama (ratings) battle is shaping up, with three new dramas squaring off against each other. SBS’s Iljmae and MBC’s Spotlight have just started airing, and now KBS’s Woman of the Sun is readying to join them. The series stars Kim Ji Soo in her television return after four years away, as well as Lee Hana, Han Jae Seok and Jung Kyeo Woon.

    The drama held its press conference on May 23 in the 63 Building in Seoul, where the stars expressed their hopes for a successful run. Showing a particular preoccupation with ratings, Han Jae Seok mentioned his disappointment over his previous series, the high-budget flop Lobbyist: “The viewership ratings were lower than expected. The audience’s opinion and response didn’t meet expectations. To be honest, I was upset.” He was so worried about the ratings issue that he looked up his competition’s ratings numbers online to compare, but hopes that the vastly different genres will help viewers find his.

    Meanwhile, Lee Hana goes up against her former castmate (having played Sohn Ye Jin’s younger sister in the drama Alone in Love and now competing head-to-head with Sohn’s Spotlight), saying lightly, “I’m sorry to her, but I hope our drama does better.”

    In Woman of the Sun, described as a “story of love and hatred” centering around a “birth secret” and two half-sisters, Kim Ji Soo plays an ambitious news announcer who abandoned her half-sister, played by Lee Hana, in her childhood. Now famous and successful, her love interest is played by Han Jae Seok, a top mergers and acquisitions specialist. Lee Hana is the younger sister who grew up in foster care after being abandoned by her older sister in Seoul Station, who determines to get her revenge.

    Well, I’ll catch this to see if it’s any good, but I’m keeping expectations (very, very) low. With Spotlight’s dullness and Iljimae’s utter absurdity, maybe Wednesdays and Thursdays will be quiet this season?

    'Women in the Sun' heats up summer

    With summer on the horizon, Wednesday and Thursday nights are heating up -- with three brand new dramas playing at the same time, viewers will have a hard time choosing what to watch.

    Will viewers opt for the gritty news drama "Spotlight," the high-flying action-packed series "Iljimae" or for KBS' latest, "Women in the Sun"?

    Set to start tonight, "Women in the Sun" promises to stir things up by catering to fans of the classic melodrama. As the title suggest, women take the lead, which differentiates itself from its competition by tackling a completely different genre: the soap opera.

    Nothing like a juicy soap opera to bring a little excitement to the small screen, and with veteran film actress Kim Ji-su in the driver's seat, viewers can expect to get the full-blown treatment.

    Co-star Jung Gyu-woon, 25, summed it up at a press conference last week when he said, "This drama is about the fateful meeting of two sisters. It is about revenge and love."

    Returning to the TV screen after starring in a number of films, Kim Ji-su tackles the hefty role of Shin Do-young, a high profile announcer. Shin has it all, the career, the man and the looks, but she also harbors a deep, dark secret.

    An adopted child and fearful of losing the sole affections of her parents, Shin abandoned her five-year old sister -- the biological daughter of Shin's parents -- at a train station when she was 13 years old. And now many years later, just when she thinks she has everything she wants, her past returns to haunt her in the form of her sister, played by "Le Grand Chef" actress Lee Ha-na.

    "She didn't deliberately abandon her sister," Kim, 35, defends her character at the press conference. "She went back for her ... She is a very insecure woman."

    Riddled with complexities, Shin promises to be a fascinating villainess. And if anyone can pull this role off, it is Kim, who has proved her acting prowess in dramatic films like "Romance" (2006).

    The same can't be said for co-star Lee Ha-na. Actress Lee -- who starred as a slapdash reporter in the hit flick "Le Grand Chef" (2007) -- plans on showing audiences that she too can play a dark character.

    "This child grew up hard, but is very optimistic," said Lee, 25, at the press conference.

    But not for long, when Lee's character, Yoon, uncovers the truth, she goes all out for revenge. And Yoon wants everything, including her sister's man -- played by actor Han Jae-suk.

    Who will win? Viewers will have to tune in tonight to watch Lee and Kim battle it out.

    Actors Han Jae-suk, 34, star of SBS' "The Lobbyist" (2007), and Jung Gyu-woon, 25, who is also starring in MBC's "Bittersweet Life" (2008) play the sisters' love interests.

    "Women in the Sun" airs tonight at 9:55 p.m. on KBS 2 TV.
