MBC has heard our prayers, ladies! We now have first glimpse of Choi Jin Hyuk‘s character – Daniel from the upcoming drama Fated to Love You. Now isn’t he looking flashy, cool and dashing? Though I would recommend ditching the sunnies, as I don’t think that actually helps one see very well in a night club.
The character set up for Daniel (Choi Jin Hyuk) is that he is multi-talented in many areas; his main profession is industrial designing, and he has an interest in DJ-ing. From the picture on the left (above), Daniel is possibly sketching something in the plane cabin (squinting closely at the reflection of his sunnies *o*) while picture on the right showing us DJ Daniel partying hard in a club in shiny gold jacket and super cool sunnies.
Daniel is a good man with a kind heart, he provides support to the orphans at a church; thus, we see him wearing a cross necklace and speaking with a nun in the above picture. One day when Daniel pays his visit to the children at the church, he meets Kim Mi Young (Jang Nara) and listens in on her confession. He will become Kim Mi Young’s friend, protector and guardian angel.
I think Daniel’s character hasn’t strayed too much from the original, apart from him having a hobby in DJ-ing. Judging from the report, they will pretty much meet the same way as Dylan meets Xing Yi; he shows interest of her well-being because he thinks Xing Yi might be his long-lost sister (who may or may not share the same name and age as Jang Nara’s character, but that’s how the Taiwanese version catches Dylan’s attention at first). After Dylan is sure Xing Yi isn’t his sister, he has already developed feelings for Xing Yi.
Well guys, brave yourself as I am pretty sure majority of the viewers will develop second male lead syndrome when this drama starts, and feel torn between Lee Gun (Jang Hyuk) and Daniel. I know I was when I watched the Taiwanese version. I had loved Dylan as much as I loved Chun Xi, and I can’t believe I am about to go through it all over again with Choi Jin Hyuk. Ohmergod… so cruel, show, so cruel.
