Cinderella’s Sister (Hangul: 신데렐라 언니 “Cinderella Unni”), also known as Cinderella’s Stepsister / A Modern Story of Revenge, is a romantic and melodramatic TV drama in Seoul, South Korea, under KBS network. It first aired on March 31, 2010, and ended its broadcast in June 2010. It has been aired under the title Cinderella’s Stepsister on KBS World, which broadcast it across all its major international networks a few weeks after its Korean premiere.


Synopsis

Eun Jo (Moon Geun Young), who lives with her mother since years ago (and also her mother’s lover), finally gets a new family home when her mother remarries to a kind man who owns a winery. At first, she denied it, and even attempted to escape rather than dealing with the attempt of being schooled. The cynical Eun-Jo is unable to accept the affection of her new step-sister Hyo Sun (Seo Woo) and step father Dae Sung (Kim Gab Soo). Hyo Sun with her bright character is the apple in her father’s eyes and the clear favorite in the house. However, Eun Jo finds a friend in Ki Hoon (Chun Jung Myung), a college student working at the winery who becomes her own prince. Ki Hoon eventually leaves to take care of personal issues, but Hyo Sun’s jealousy of Eun Jo causes her to make Eun Jo believe that he has abandoned her. The three reunite 8 years later to begin the main plot – a modern adaptation of Cinderella with a twist. Jung Woo (Taecyeon), a boy that Eun Jo considered her little brother 8 years ago, appears in order to be near her and fulfills the role of a “fairy godmother” to her. A love triangle forms when Hyo Sun falls for Ki Hoon, who is still in love with Eun Jo. The feeling of betrayal lasts with Eun Jo, creating misunderstandings and difficulties. However, the kindness of Eun Jo’s stepfather (Hyo Sun’s father) begins to change everyone’s lives, making this a tale of growth and redemption.

Review: I like Cinderella’s Sister. I had lots of fun watching it. It is very interesting. It is worth your time. Also this is Taecyeon’s debut in acting. He did a great job. Moon Geun Young is know for being Korea’s youngest sister, did she do a good job. Ofcourse, I love her. She is very good in acting. You can almost feel her emotions when she is crying. She did a lot of crying in this drama series. Not only is this drama series about love but it’s also about family. When you finish watching it you will learn a moral lesson. Lastly; why do I recommend this show to all my leaders simply because the plot is great the acting is great; what could you ask for? right? It’s not your typical Korean Drama which makes it unique and fun to watch.

Review: Dream is just another Korean drama it’s not really a must watch unless you want to see Kim Bum act cute or whatever. This was my first impression; however I realized that Dream is a story about a normal person wanting to achieve his dream and as he goes through obstacles he improves not only his skills but also his heart. Dream is about 2 guys Kim Bum the son and Oh Dal Soo the father trying to achieve their dreams. Yes I already said that however this father & son have a special relationship. Dream’s actors are also good so you can count on me that you won’t be disappointed on their acting. Kim Bum and Joo Jin Mo are “brothers” in this drama series. There is a little bit of a love story but very little and it’s between Son Dam Bi an Kim Bum; however when I do say little I do mean little. Dream is not focus on love story but focus on passion and dedication. For those people wanting to see Kim Bum star on a drama do watch this. For those people who needs inspiration or tired of love stories. Do watch this. It might get boring because you are not used to this kind of plot, but believe me Dream is not boring. As you watch this show you will often say “debak” meaning success in Korean. Why? Because you will see as they encounter and obliterate the obstacles you will feel happy for them almost like this happened in true life. As you watch this show you will want to know who wins; the enemies or the main characters. Finally when you finish the show you will learn a lot of valuable lessons when you think about it. Want to know what those valuable lessons? Oh yeah one comment. between Son Dam Bi and Kim Bum the chemistry is not really good. I would have to rate this show 6.5/10 but if you are looking for some inspiration 8/10.

WATCH AND FIGURE IT OUT YOURSELF.
