Fated to Love You [MBC]/ You Are My Destiny/ 운명처럼 널 사랑해/ Woonmyungcheoreom Neol Saranghae (S.Korean)
20 episodes

There were laughs and tears pretty much all the way through this one. Great acting too by the entire cast! It might seem a little odd to say it but my fav scene, was probably the 'Best Bed Scene' on the cruise. Not often do you see such depth of 'simple' kissing in an Asian drama... I also really enjoyed the 'electric gaze' between the guy's personal assistant and one of the girl's sisters ..until momma swats the current down. ...several times. and the waltz/tango dance between 'Z' and the girl was really good as well. It does bog down a bit when he takes to spending time anywhere but with her and she is left alone in his mother's home. oh yeah.. in-context tragedy alert!

The Korean Version of this series was had a funny beginning of bringing the post-in girl and the wimp of a noble in range of eachother for a resort stay. They do follow the original storyline fairly closely in spite of differences in presentation. Although... I still wonder just why the girl chose to scoop this 'random' bottle out of the water to drink and stem her sneezes. euw.

There was a cruise... girl took her boyfriend, hoping to rekindle a mutual love that didn't exist. Guy hoped his girlfriend would join him, but unknown to him, she chose to dance the clouds en-route to a famous stage. girl loses the idiot boyfriend and gets sick.. having doped herself with medication and intending to turn in early, she gets the wrong room.
The poor guy gets drugged with 'dragon in bed' by island folks who want their plight heard by the company head who bought out their livelihood, even if they have to resort to blackmail. Magic happens between the guy and girl and a child is conceived.
To be responsible, they are forced to marry and the misunderstandings.. enough to last through several years,.. gets underway.
