WOW! Is this serious? All star cast + Jung Ha Yeon will be writing it?

Will this be the one that'll replace Kim Soo Ro? Looks awesome.

It's kinda weird to see Kim Nam Joo to possibly star in both dramas both in 2010.

Hope this one would push through with those actors.

Side note: Should love-time be life-time?

Thanks for reminding me.. Haven't been thinking too well lately because of the heat.

This will be a Ulsan MBC production which is one of the province branches of the MBC. So just like the drama special "My sister's march" which was produced by Masan MBC. There is a possibility, that it'll air on a different later date on the Main MBC station which is in seoul unless there is an official news that it will showing on the same time as the Ulsan MBC station.

Hi, I'm a bit confused, is this suppose to be Queen of Housewives' sequel? Queen of Tears?

Kim Nam Joo is definitely playing in Queen of Tears (that will be airing on mon-tues time slot), she can't possibly in acting in two dramas airing at the same time rite?

Anyways, excited <3

This is a different drama not to be confuse with the other weekday drama (Mon/tue slots). Special weekend planning drama "Women only love once in a lifetime" is a big first in-house production that's why they need a stronger cast to attract viewers.

Stars/cast can appear/film in different dramas/filming at the same time by arranging their filming schedule.

For example: Star "A" can film for drama "A" for 3 days and then drama "B" for the rest of the week. It all depends on how the cast arranges their filming schedules.

This is the first drama scene which centers on the Tae hwa river swimming competition filmed in Ulsan.

Yoo Seung-ho to return to small screen in October



Korean actor Yoo Seung-ho will be returning to the small screen in October as the male lead in an upcoming drama.

An industry source told Sports Today over the phone, "It has been confirmed that Yoo Seung-ho has been cast for the new MBC weekend drama tentatively titled 'You Only Love a Girl Once in Your Life.'"

The official added that the show's producer will make an official announcement in early September.

"Girl," to also star Korean actress Shin Eun-kyoung, is a 50-part series about the legacy of a son of a conglomerate family. It is written by famed scenarist Jung Ha-youn, whose works include "The Last Empress," "La Dolce Vita" and "Sindon."

Yoo made his debut at the early age of 10, starring in the MBC TV series "Daddy Fish" (2000) and his film debut in "The Way Home" (2002). He has appeared in numerous dramas including "Love Letter" (MBC, 2003), "Queen Seon-duk" (MBC, 2009) and "Master of Study" (KBS2, 2010) and movie "Don't Tell Papa" (2004) and "Unforgettable" (2008).

He recently released a digital single with Korean songstress IU titled "I Believe in Love," which has fared well on various music charts since its release in early August.



Seo Woo and Yoo Seung Ho will be playing a pair of married couple despite their age differences of eight years.

Seo Woo plays the movie actress "Baek Soo Bin", an actress who is known to be cute and sexy at the same time. She gets into scandals with Kim Min Jae (Yoo Seung Ho), the 2nd generation son of a conglomerate family with a large enterprise founded by Min Jae's grandfather "Kim Tae Jin" when they unexpectedly got into scandals as she is a national actress and they eventually forced to get married.



Jo Min Ki joins the cast of "Flames of Desire" as Kim Young Min who is both the son of President "Kim Tae Jin" (Lee Soon Jae) and the father of Kim Min Jae (Yoo Seung Ho).

Official poster



MBC reveals "Flames of desire" poster which showcases the four different charisma of the four leads played by Shin Eun Kyung, Jo Min Ki, Yoo Seung Ho and Seo Woo.

Shin Eun Kyung steps in her role as Yoon Na Young, a chameleon-like woman who plays a hand in the destinies and fates of her husband "Kim Young Min" (Jo Min Ki), the third son of President Kim Tae Jin and her son "Kim Min Jae".

Shin Eun Kyung face looks much fuller than before so I'm not sure if that is her in the poster.:blink:   She was really thin and guant by the end of White Lies. I am very glad that she now looks healthy and beautiful but still she looks very different.  Is that her for real? :unsure:

Drama seems interesting! However, I'm still a bit skeptical about Yoo Seung ho pairing with Seo woo. He's looks too young in my view. However, this drama will be on my list. :) I just love Seung ho that much. I'll be anticipating how the character's acting will be like, especially Seung ho, but as I notice, the first beginning half of the drama will focus on the parents, and then the next generation will be the kids. Now this is something...a full scale drama. Cross my hands I will not be disappointed!
