Oh! Feel Young (2004)

Korean title: 오! 필승 봉순영 (Oh! Pil-seung, Bong Soon-young)

What’s popping:

The title. Why is it translated to Oh! Feel Young? Does Pil-seung mean “feel young” in Korean?

Anyway, I watched the drama last night/early morning and enjoyed it. It’s funny in the fish-out-of-water kind of way.

Ahn Jae-wook (안재욱) is hilarious portraying the bumbling Pil-seung. He’s a good-for-nothing lazy bum who happens to have family ties with the Chairwoman of a chain of hypermarts. When he learns of his real identity – the heir to the mega-corporation – he instantly gets a position of power at the organisation, ruffling a few feathers in the process.

One of them is the very dynamic and debonair Jae-woong (Ryu Jin, 류진 of Love Truly). The child prodigy is dissatisfied that a wastrel is entrusted with such heavy responsibilities, and threatens to quit his managerial position. However, he eventually decides to stick around and treat the situation as a challenge.

A love triangle between the men and a hypermart employee named Soon-young (Chae Rim,채림) is thrown into the mix. In the 4th episode last night, Soon-young gets chummy with Jae-woong, leaving Pil-seung heartbroken.

Pil-seung then starts to take his work seriously. With the help of his reliable assistant Yu-jeong (Park Seon-young, 박선영) – a possible love interest – the protagonist sets out to prove his worth. Yeah, game ON, people!

Nice drama, but quite late in the night.

Synopsis:

Can a guy who knows nothing about the ruthless world of wheeling and dealing succeed or will he be knocked down by the back stabbers and opportunists around him?

Slumberland: Hey, hey, hey…watch that drool!

You’ve just got to watch and see if the happy-go-lucky and uneducated Pil-seung rises to the occasion or crashes and burns…and at the same time, win the heart of his true love. Phew!

Watch it:

  • KBS World (Astro Channel 303)
  • Korean with English subtitles (yay!)
  • 11.40pm to 12.40am
  • For the days, please check your Astro guide. I can’t find mine and the online one sucks.
