Recommended Posts

Thanks @triplem and @larus

I thought Jo Bo Ah's new drama with Lee Dong Wook might air first before this. :wacko: Glad this will air first coz I've been waiting for this for too long since it was announced.

 I don`t know why it was so hard to find a TVnetwork but I am glad that finally this drama is going to air soon.

Not wanting to jump the gun , but apparently this will replace ( or there are talks at least ) that this will replace currently airing Woman of 9.9 Billion on KBS

 It`s good news. I really wanted to know when this drama will air and which network will take it.

 

There are articles that say that it is in possitive discussion to replace KBS 99 Billion Woman drama.

 

KBS "Park Hae-jin 'Secret, '99 Billion Women' Follow-up Positive Discussion"

You mean to say say KBS will be the network for this drama? Finally....finally Park Hae Jin will come back?

 

I'm no super fan of the actor but but for all that's happened  with previeous supposed drama... hopefully a good  new year for him. He is good.. given a good script and story (ie Bad Guys!)

 

@larus@triplem thanks for the update...

@katakwasabi  An airdate  of Secret is really good news but what is SSR? Call me stupid but I just can't figure out.

I hope it is Hae Jin Ssi you were talking about.

No, it is not Park Hae Jin but Shin Sung Rok.:D She was happy that there were good news for her. One is that Secret might have an airing date and her favorite actor has new projects.

 

I see that Wikipedia has KBS2 as the broadcast and and airing date, January 29, but we don`t have an official confirmation yet. I think it is true that Secret will be following 9.9 Billion Woman. I did not hear anything about KBS2 preparing other drama for this timeslot. It is not possible to air any other drama who did not start shooting.

 

Edit

I was wrong. There is another drama that KBS2 has on the same timespot. Oh My Men/ Oh My Boys and after that another drama Welcome Home.

I don`t know what is going on. Or maybe the information is not valid anymore.

Maybe KBS will start airing dramas in Monday-Tuesday timeslot again.

Just finished watching Cheese in the Trap movie, and remembered all the reasons why I love watching Park Hae Jin on screen. Can't wait to see his new drama start. I hope it's good. Think I'll go watch him in a couple of episodes of Bad Guys while I wait. :wub:

 

Jo Bo Ah, the female lead, seems to be getting better with each role as well, though for awhile, I kept feeling her best role was in Shut Up and Run, Flower Boy Band where she was the muse, but didn't actually do or say very much. :D

 

Anyway, I hope for chemistry between the leads, but I'll be happy with a coherent plot and direction.

If you guys have noticed, news reports and even in the MM post, the drama is referred to as "Forest" and not "Secret".

It had been officially changed to "Forest" as per our notice on Club Jins.

To be sure tho, let's wait for the airing or KBS's website updates.

Forest-SM111.jpg

KBS2 is set to air drama series “Forest,” starring Park Hae-Jin & Jo Bo-Ah, from January 29, 2020.

Plot synopsis from AsianWiki: Kang San-Hyeok (Park Hae-Jin) is a member of the 119 special rescue team. He is handsome and smart, but he does not remember his childhood. Jung Young-Jae (Jo Bo-Ah) is an enthusiastic surgical resident.

Kang San-Hyeok and Jung Young-Jae meet at a mysterious forest. Even though they do not want to, they must live together in the mysterious forest. Living there, they discover small pleasures. Kang San-Hyeok and Jung Young-Jae soon uncover a secret about themselves and the forest.

Yes KBS2 Wednesday Thursday is a good slot because of the competition is not that fierce.

 

Compare to Monday with 3 big drama 

Doctor kim with 18% , black dog with 5% and diary of prosecutor with 3.5%

 

The competition in wednesday thursday is TvN money game and MBC The Game Toward Zero 

 

It is 3 new drama airing so it would be a good battle. 

 

Let see how this one going. Recent drama in this timeslot achieving 10%+ hopefully this drama aswell!

I am glad that this drama finally will air. I always wanted to see a drama about rescue forces, about people working on such teams.

But it is something I don`t like in the preview. It looks like the protagonists are childhood friends/ crushes, whatever. Please, stop this trop, kdramas!  Take some rest!  All the time, everywhere, I see the fateful first love stories. But allright , I can get over it if the drama has a good script. Fingers crossed.

Thank you for your insight.

hmmm. "Money Game" sounds good, but I think it may not appeal to younger audience, and maybe that is why Viki did not license it?   But "The Game Towards Zero" could be a tough competition, because of Taek-Yeon  in it - and it is first show after the military.  So far, KOCOWA is already advertisiing "The Game Towards Zero," but sadly - not "Forest." Probably, because it is a new decision that KBS is going to air it.
No matter, I am sure this Drama will do well, and possibly - even very well.

I am already so exited there is an air-date this month!

Glad that this thread is actively being updated since the airdate was announced and followed up with a teaser... Thanks everyone for sharing. :P

Just wish the out come will be great since it's entirely pre-produced.

I couldn't contain my happiness & excitement!

I miss watching both leads already! I've been waiting for so long to watch both of them on screen again! :wub:

Wish Jan. 29 will come faster.

I will watch Money Game but you are right, this drama will not be popular with the younger audience/ or a large audience but I hope it will be translated. I did not worry about Forest/ former Secret drama. I thought it will be translate for sure. No matter who will do the translations, I wish there will be available.  Fingers crossed.

 

It is good that this drama will follow the Nr 1 in the timeslot. I think Forest will come first too but they will mentain the lead only if the drama is good.

Forest-KD-teaser1SM1.jpg

First teaser trailer added for KBS2 drama series “Forest” starring Park Hae-Jin & Jo Bo-Ah. Captions in the teaser trailer state in Korean (0:04) “All the secrets” and (0:12) “Began in this forest.”

Meanwhile, below are still images of Park Hae-Jin in the drama series. He plays Kang San-Hyeok. He is a M&A specialist, with a cool, perfectionist personality. Due to an unexplained reason, he begins to work as a member of a 911 special rescue team.

“Forest” first airs January 29, 2020 in South Korea.

Did anyone else notice the firehands in the teaser? It looked like someone has super powers.

PHJ has a big fanbase. I suppose the drama will have okay ratings. If the plot manages to attract viewers attention it may get huge ratings, there are no direct competition in its timeslot. Unless SBS brings back its Wed-Thurs drama slot. 

 

I have no clue what to expect from Forest/Secret. The original synopsis and the teaser are not really in-line, there also seems to be a childhood trope thrown in.

Original drama description:
‘Secret’ is a work that depicts the characters who have realistic desires to heal in the space called ‘Forest’ and heal the wound of the heart that is not happy with their own memories, realizing the essence of happiness.
