A New Leaf was a gift from drama god when I was in search for good dramas; there was a lack of gripping dramas during those times, and I was dying for something good. I hadn’t planned on watching this one when it was first announced, or when the trailers were released. I wasn’t enthuasiatic about it; mainly because I wasn’t interested in Kim Myung Min, or the storyline. I also thought it would be extreeeeemely melodramatic. Boy, was I so wrong!
Seriously, I am glad I pick this drama up and gave it a chance. I love the dynamics between the actors! The show has great, solid main casts; they all gave a well-balanced and stable performance. Kim Sang Joong was absolutely awesome in his role. Oh Jung Se once again made a deep impression in his supporting role and lastly, Kim Myung Min – how he portrayed a wooden, dull, monotonous and expressionless person into a multi-faceted, and layered character so interesting to watch is beyond me – *clap* *clap* *clap*

In addition to the casting news summary, Park Min Young (Sungkyunkwan Scandal, City Hunter) has finally settled down and decided on her first come-back drama after a year or 2 absence from the small screen. She will join Kim Myung Min (The King of Dramas, Beethoven Virus) as the leads in the upcoming MBC drama named A New Leaf. Park Min Young has previously reported to have been offered the script to Doctor Stranger but turned it down. Some of us like myself is glad that she has turned down Doctor Stranger as the character was closely similar to her previous disasterous drama Dr. Jin.
Uri Hwi Kyung, I mean Park Hae Jin is confirmed for an upcoming drama named Doctor Stranger. He will play a genius doctor – Han Jae Joon who graduated from Harvard University and is a professional chest surgeon. He is described to be in his 30s, intelligent and talented.
Seo In Guk and Park Min Young recently partner up to film a CF for outdoor apparel brand ISENBERG, in which they perfectly showed off the various casual sporting styles.
