Premiering: Wok of Love (Greasy Melo)

Korean Drama Wok of Love on SBS starring Lee Joon-Ho, Jang Hyuk, and Jung Ryeo-Won
It’s about time for the light romantic comedies without any hints of death or disaster to come around! I miss my rom-coms y’all. Give me all of the awkward feels with none of the real world drama. Thankfully we have several to look forward to with Wok of Love premiering first, the other two are The Undateables and Why Secretary Kim, I love it! It feels like a delightful romantic breeze dancing into this hot melo landscape we are in right now.

This is basically the story of a former thug who opens a Chinese restaurant in a building that he owns, a famous chef that is using this tiny Chinese restaurant to get his reputation back, and the lady they will both love.

Date: May 7th, 2018
Day: Monday and Tuesday
Time: 22:00
Station: SBS
Episodes: 40 (two 30 minute episodes each day)

Writer, Seo Sook-hyang (서숙향): Jealousy Incarnate, Miss Korea, Romance Town, Pasta among others.

Director, Park Sun-Ho (박선호): Suspicious Partner (main director), My Fantastic Funeral (main director), Birth of a Beauty (sub-director)

Jang Hyuk (장혁) plays Doo Chil-seong, the former thug trying to live rightly. He is a good guy though so he hires several of his thugs to work in his restaurant and thereby live rightly as well.

Lee Joon-ho (이준호) plays Seo Poong, a top chef that was unceremoniously fired and chooses to get his revenge by making a tiny tiny tiny Chinese spot into a tier one restaurant.

Jung Ryeo-won (정려원) plays Dan Sae-woo a lovely equestrian loving delightful lady who eats her first ever bowl of jajangmyun one day and loses her mind. This may explain why she wants to hag around this hole in the wall Chinese spot and becomes the love interest of our two lead men.

    Oh!! Excited. I love all 3. Especially JH. Hope someone picks up this drama and I don’t have to run around finding episodes 🙂

      Me too! I feel like it will be picked up since it is a romance. Dramafever and Viki are pretty heavy on the romances lately.

        It does look like Viki picked it up. But still not sure if its standard for basic subscribers or only for Plus subscribers.
        Recently, most of their good shows end up only for Plus, making it hard on people who have to pay multiple subscriptions to many sites to get decent content across the spectrum. fingers crossed!

          Oh my goodness, tell me about it! We have Viki, Dramafever, Netflix, and Amazon Prime memberships. Debating getting a Kocowa or not.

            LOL!! so funny. I was just checking Kocowa recently but even they dont have ‘Suits’. I have the same set of subscriptions. if I add one more to it, there is no way I can explain my obsession to my husband (or even to myself) ; )
            I like DF because of offline content (works great during commute), but recently they are quite low on new content. Though am glad they got ‘A Poem a day’ (check it out when you have time, its quite a pleasant watch)

              I will! I have heard really good things about it. It looks like it will fit my recent drama mood, too.

    It’s SBS, so that means Kokowa, right? It’ll be on Viki- but will it be free or the upgraded subscription, is the question.

    I want a light rom-com, too! It’s time for the spring-summer lovin’!

      That will be nice if Viki picks it up. It’s SBS so international viewers should be able to watch it live streaming straight from their site.
