kdrama - the vineyard man

official website:

drama title:
포도밭 그사나이 / Podopat Geusanai
oso known as the man in the vineyard

main cast:
Yoon Eun Hye as Lee Ji Hyun (city girl)
Oh Man Seok as Jang Taek-Gi (country boy)
Kim Ji Suk as Kim Kyung Min (doc, town boy and city girl's college crush)
Jung So-young as Kang Soo Jin (prof, country boy's ex gf)

city girl goes to the country and falls in love with country boy. can this even be possible? guess that is why this is a korean drama.

the original pretext of luring city girl to country is good. it's a financial windfall for a fashion designer wannabe who got backstabbed and then fired from work. her granduncle only requires her to work for a year at his 10,000 acre vineyard, and it's hers. checks with the property people say it can be worth a whole lot more when converted to resortland. at the same time, she could avoid a certain guy whom she had accidentally molested in a public male toilet during the time she got backstabbed at work, and he was harassing her.

turns out he is working for her granduncle, and she even has to learn farming from him! the work is tough and she isnt used to the living conditions. but over time and even meeting up with her old crush, a doc on duty in the boondocks as his national service stint, she ends up preferring plain and honest country boy to dressy and rich town boy???

of course, it is never easy to inherit that much money. the granduncle's daughter in law turns up with a son and claims it's his grandson. but ultimately, everything turns out A-OK.

my score: 7 out of 10.
i would have given it a higher score if the storyline wasnt so cheesy. still, it's a great drama about the pros of working hard and seeing the reward. oso, the pig hunt cum overnight camping scene is worth the whole drama put together.

why you should watch it:
learn how to take care of a vineyard. as well as a farm. see lots of juicy grapes. makes me wanna eat them too! ok ok, im skirting the main reason: it's all about YOON EUN HYE. can this girl do anything wrong on camera? so far, all i can say is, NOPE. dont believe me, go check out that camping scene. and she is so dorky looking at times, it's super funny! esp when she tries to dress up and still work in the fields. or gets her hair stuck in the vines. just watch the drama!!!!
