SBS Monday and Tuesday TV series "Wish Upon a Star" Scenarist: Jung Ji-woo Producer: Jeong Hyo Cast: Choi Jung-won, Kim Ji-hoon-I, Sin Dong-wook, Chae Yeong-in Premiere Date: January 4, 2009 at 8:50 P.M.
"A drama which will reveal the new direction SBS dramas will take on in time with the 20th anniversary of the company's establishment", chief producer Kim Young-seob said of TV series "Wish Upon a Star" during a press conference held Monday. And his statement holds true as for the first time, SBS plans to air hour-long dramas back to back on Mondays and Tuesdays starting 8:50 P.M. January 4 next year. This may be why "Wish Upon a Star" has seemingly taken on a relatively safe plot. By now viewers are used to how a poor employee (Jin Bbalgang, played by Choi Jung-won) who believes life is 'one shot' becomes romantically involved with a cold-hearted lawyer (Min Kang-hoon, played by Kim Ji-hoon-I) after serving as his maid. The story of how Choi has to support her four younger siblings had been added onto the storyline. The plot is easy enough for viewers in and past their middle ages -- hence, it seems the role of "Wish Upon a Star" will be to form ground during a new time slot by recording steady ratings with its somewhat verified story.,...More
