drama korean : “Dalja’s Spring” Off to Good Start

KBS 2TV’s new drama “Dalja’s Spring” has been receiving positive responses since its first episode was aired on Wednesday. The comic melodrama revolves around the life of a 33-year-old single woman, Oh Dal-ja, to show the reality she faces as an "old maid" and the love she still dreams of one day having.

Chae Lim plays the female lead, with Lee Min-ki playing opposite her as Tae-bong, a man younger than her who has a crush on her. Singer and actor Lee Hyun-woo plays Uhm Jung-ki, whose goal is to find a perfect and rational love. Other cast members include Gong Hyung-jin and Lee Hye-young.

In the first episode, Dal-ja, naive and clumsy, falls in love with Shin Se-do (Gong Hyun-jin), but to her disappointment soon finds that he is a playboy. She also encounters Tae-bong, whose job is to pose as a woman’s boyfriend under contract. He will sign a contract with Dal-ja in later episodes.

Viewers praised the drama for interesting characters and funny situations they can identify with. “I like the story development that I can sympathize with, and I think the characters are interesting and the cast is very good,” a viewer said. “I like the straightforward lines, too.” Other responses included, “It was so engaging that I never took my eyes off it,” “I liked that it showed reality in cartoon-like situations,” and “It was better than I expected.” Many viewers also praised Chae Lim for her portrayal of the naive single woman
