Surprisingly, both new dramas this week have just twelve episodes. (My heart hopes that this is the start of a trend, because there is far less chance for meandering bloat with twelve episodes.) Will either of these make your watch list this week?
12 episodes, DramaX
Furniture designer Lee Ra-hee is preparing for the next stage of her life: marriage to a second-generation chaebol son, Hwang Jae-min. Jae-min, a former player, is finally ready to settle down with Ra-hee and work hard at his family’s furniture company. Shortly before the wedding, Ra-hee discovers that her first marriage to Lee Min-hong isn’t officially over. Min-hong never turned in the paperwork to finalize their divorce; he ended up in an accident instead. He also acquired amnesia and believes he’s still married to Ra-hee.
