SYNOPSIS:

Oh Eun-soo(Choi Kang-hee) is 31 years old and worked at the same company for seven years. Life starts to get tremendously stifling for her. Her boss criticizes her for being dense and those words undermine her self-esteem, which was low to begin with. The new hire makes her look bad by working hard and showing passion for her job. But she gets worse news when her ex-boyfriend, who always said that marriage was a dead-end street, invites her to his wedding. But the double-whammy comes when her best friend, Jae-in(Jin Jae-young), also announces that she’ll be getting married! Right when she needed a little tender affection, several men enter her lives with amorous undertones.

She has a one-night stand with Tae-oh(Ji Hyun-woo), a younger man who she met at a bar. Kim Young-soo(Lee Sun-gyun), who was introduced to her by her boss, enters her life as another option for love. Then Yoo-joon(Kim Young-jae), a friend she has a platonic relationship with, suddenly proposes marriage to her. Deluged with so many options, she has to wade through the complicated courtship rituals to find the person who she’ll spend the rest of her life with. It’s not easy to choose Mr. Right. Yoon Tae-oh, Nam Yoo-joon, and Kim Young-soo...

As if she is answering a multiple-choice question, she looks quizzically at the names of the three men in her life. But the men have their charms and flaws, which makes it doubly hard to just follow her heart.

Who will Oh Eun-soo choose? What will happen to her friend Jae-in, whose marriage fell apart in months, and Yoo-hee(Moon Jung-hee)’s career as a musical performer?

Female lead was originally cast as Kim Jung Eun.

Back in August 2007, the 1st news article related to this drama was about a radio 'date' programme between the book's author and Ji Hyun Woo.

Korean Chick Lit Books Turned Into Dramas

Staff Reporters

Chick lit books have always been popular among young Korean women, especially the ``Shopaholic'' series by Sophie Kinsella and ``The Devil Wears Prada'' by Lauren Weisberger.

Korean chick lit books are also gaining popularity, and two popular books are being turned into television dramas.

The glamorous world of the fashion industry will be the backdrop for the up-coming SBS drama ``Style," based on a novel written by Baek Young-ok, a former fashion reporter.

A producer from SBS said Tuesday it has finalized the purchase of the rights to turn ``Style" into a drama. The drama is expected to air by March next year.

There is no word yet on who will play the lead role in the TV soap. In ``Style," the main character is a 31-year-old female reporter at a fashion magazine. It gives an inside look at the world of fashion and luxury. It also deals with office politics, fierce competition in the fashion world and the luxury goods industry.

``Style'' has been likened to ``The Devil Wears Prada," a fictionalized account of a young woman's experience working for a top fashion magazine in New York.

The novel was chosen as the winner of Segye Ilbo's 4th World Literature Award last year. Baek has also published other works including ``It's All Roh Moo-hyun's Fault" and ``Cat Shanti.''

Along with ``Style,'' another popular book ``My Sweet Seoul,'' written by Jeong Yi-hyun, will be brought to the television screens June 6.

Dubbed as a ``premium drama,'' the best seller turned production will portray the life of a 31-year-old single woman Oh Eun-soo played by actress Choi Kang-hee.

The novel ``My Sweet Seoul'' first appeared as a series in the Chosun Ilbo back in 2005. The realistic storyline and detailed literary style grabbed the attention of young women in their mid-20s and 30s, and the author soon came out with the book version. Through the protagonist Oh, the book displays the story of her love and office life, friendship and family. The drama is expected to pick up the detailed and trendy life of Oh from the book.

The drama will follow the basic story line with additional plots along the way. Along with actress Choi, actors Lee Sun-kyun and Ji Hyun-woo will also appear as the main male characters.

Another interesting feature of the drama is the production crew. Park Heung-sik, the producer of the drama, will join writer Song Hae-jin and shooting director Choi Young-ta to create the drama version of the book. Park, Song and Choi have worked together for the movie ``My Mother, The Mermaid'' (2004) and they promised to bring movie-like scenes and backdrops for drama fans.

``My Sweet Seoul'' will be aired 9:55 p.m., June 6 on SBS.
