'Personal Taste': Son Ye-Jin strikes back as Park Gae-In

Son Ye-jin, who stole the spotlight in 'My Wife Got Married' and 'White Night', makes her comeback in the drama "Personal Taste" (script Park Hye-kyeong, producer Son Hyeong-seok, produced by Lee Kim Productions).

Son breaks away from her usual passive image and gets into a sweet and energetic role giving the audience much anticipation to see her spunky transformation in this new drama.

"Personal Taste" is an adaptation of a Korean-American's novel where Son plays the role of the leading lady 'Park Gae-in'. The drama's title is a play on Gae-in's name, which literally means "personal" in Korean.

Park Gae-in is a furniture designer in her mid twenties and is the only daughter of a well-respected professor in the construction industry. As a young CEO of the hip furniture brand marketed for singles, 'Moon', Park is a troublemaker who is all over the place and naively trusts people too easily hence suffers heartaches but never manages to lose her cool spirit.

With the hopes of befriending a gay friend, Gae-in coincidentally befriends and lives with Jun Jin-Ho (played by Lee Min-ho), whom she thinks is gay, and their interaction brings joy to the screen. Through this, Gae-in's frustration of being single disappears and she finds her femininity and grows into a more sophisticated mature woman.

Son reflects, "This year I wanted to do a bright and fun project and I am glad I found this one. Furthermore, I really liked how, despite all the struggles, the main character uses confidence and optimism to deal with her problems. I was able to have so much fun filming this drama".

The highly anticipated Son Ye-jin/Lee Min-ho special "Personal Taste" premieres in April as a MBC Wednesday/Thursday mini-series and is expected to be a huge hit for 2010.

"Personal Taste" is produced by Lee Kim Productions whose hits include 'Something Happened in Bali', 'War of Money', and 'My Fair Lady'.
