Jeon So Min to Star in Korean Drama 1% of Anything with Ha Suk Jin

1% of Anything Korean Drama - Jeon So Min

Jeon So Min (Maids) has been confirmed to star in the new drama 1% of Anything which is a remake of the drama of the same name which came out in 2003.  She joins Ha Suk Jin (D-Day) in this story about a rich chaebol who finds out his grandfather has given away his inheritance to a teacher, and the only way for him to get it back is to marry the woman.

The same writer of the original series as well as the novel it was based off of will be penning this new remake, and it will be completely pre-produced.  It sounds like a classic set-up for some fun bickering with love blossoming along the way.

1% of Anything is looking to air in the last half of 2016 on MBC.

    This sounds like a great candidate for a remake. Have you seen the original? I watched it for Kang Don Won a few years ago. He was very pretty, of course, but his acting was not nearly as good as it is now. The production values were nothing like these days either. I can see this being a lot of fun with a new cast and new production.

      I haven’t seen the original yet. Another on my oh so long watch list 🙂 Hmm, and come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Kang Don Won unless I’m just forgetting something. But this is the exact classic rom-com set up I love, so I think the remake has got a lot of potential 🙂

        Oops, I meant Kang Dong Won. He said in an interview many years ago that he doesn’t like the fast pace of making dramas, so he only does movies now. I like his movies very much. And, of course, he is gorgeous. https://www.google.com/search?q=kang+dong+won&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi1n5OErLzNAhVF5IMKHXiGDcUQ_AUICCgB&biw=1298&bih=1194

          Ah, that would explain why I don’t know him at all. I see so few Korean movies, and he hasn’t done a drama since 2004. I’m so picky when it comes to movies, but I’ll have to browse through some of his works. It’s probably just me, but in a lot of his pictures I think he really resembles Joo Won, which is definitely a plus in my book 🙂

            I agree about his resemblance to Joo Won. When Joo Won debuted, a lot of people said he looked like Kang Dong Won.

            I haven’t watched nearly as many Korean movies as dramas, but two of Kang Dong Won’s movies that I liked are Secret Reunion and My Palpitating Life (two very different genres). If you like stylistic martial arts movies, Duelist with Ha Ji Won is beautiful.

              Oh good, it’s not just me. They look so similar in some of the pictures that I would think they are brothers. I’ll have to see if the similarity still exists when he’s in action. I’ll look those movies up to see if they sound interesting to me 🙂

                Movies are a different art form than dramas, but the advantage is that they require a much smaller investment of time. I will drop a movie if it doesn’t grab me within the first fifteen minutes, rather than giving it two or three episodes (hours). I just revisited the reviews of Kang Dong Won’s movies on mydramalist.com, which is my favorite source of info on asian films and dramas. Now I have to rewatch Duelist because it is visual poetry.

                  I’m just like that. I have a hard time getting deeply invested in most movies because they are short. So a movie needs to really grab me quickly in order for me to have a shot at even liking it.

                  I love My Drama List too. It’s my go to when I want to look up actors and dramas, and I also really love the Recommendation forum there.

                  I also really enjoy works that are visually stunning. I usually need a good story too, but adding that visual layer on top really heightens the experience for me 🙂

    I use My Drama List to keep track of all my dramas and movies. I haven’t read the forums or added any friends yet, but I would like to do that now. http://mydramalist.com/profile/joybran

      Me too 🙂 I’m pretty obsessive about keeping my list up to date and usually update it at least a few days per week. The only forum I really use is the Recommendation forum. That really helped me build up my watch list so I could choose certain dramas when I was in a specific mood for something. I don’t use it as much anymore since my list is so long now, lol.

      Hehe, I haven’t added any friends yet either…you’ll be my first 🙂 And looking at your list confirms our overall similar tastes. So are you watching Modern Farmer right now?

        Yes, I thought it would be too slapstick for my taste, but it does have a lot of heart. I knew I would enjoy watching Lee Hong Ki and Park Min Woo, but I decided to try it for a young actor I just became aware of, Kwak Dong Yeon. I first noticed him in Inspiring Generation as the young version of Kim Hyun Joong’s character. He was so good, I was disappointed when the adult actors took over. hehe Actually, I only managed to finish that drama because of Song Jae Rim and Kim Sung Oh. I can’t stand Jin Se Yeon.

        Weirdly enough, Kwak Dong Yeon is also a trainee with FNC, the company that represents FT Island and CN Blue. I can’t imagine why he wants to be a rock star when he is such a good actor. I also noticed him sitting with Lee Joon Gi at an award ceremony (for Joseon Gunman), even though they haven’t worked together as far as I can tell.

        I usually only watch one drama at a time, unless I’m watching them as they air, like Jackpot and Vampire Detective, which is thankfully over. I also usually drop them rather than put them on hold, because I never seem to go back to anything I’ve put on hold.

          Modern Farmer is one of favorite dramas 🙂 It’s the drama that confirmed how much I hate live watching. Started watching it with only 6 episodes out and felt absolutely tortured waiting to watch week to week. I was worried it would be to slapstick too, but I was surprised at how much I adored the zany and over the top comedy. And yes, so much heart! I love every single character.

          And Kwak Dong Yeon is my favorite! It’s the first drama I saw him and he won me over so fast. Him and Bool Ja were my favorite couple. I really liked him in Puck and was so excited when he popped up in Come Back Ahjussi. I’m ready for him to have a proper lead role because he is a real talent.

          You know I have trouble pulling that trigger on dropping dramas, so I have a lot of dramas that end up on hold. But some of them I don’t really care for and others I really like but other things have caught my attention more.

          I usually have one primary drama (right now Entertainer) that gets most of my time and one secondary drama (Falling for Innocence). Then a lot of times I’ll have a third drama that I just watch a couple episodes of each weekend (Chronicle of Life). Sometimes I’ll watch a couple episodes a day of the primary drama and sometimes I’ll marathon it. But that’s my general pattern 🙂
