Drama: Yawang
Screenplay by Choi Ran-I (최란)

Airing dates : 2012/__/__~Upcoming

A former announcer who gets fired after rioting against her husbands death, becomes the first female president of Korea. Another story of "Daemul - Big Thing"'s creator Park In-kwon.

Kwon Sang-woo and Su Ae back to dramaland?

There’s a new drama pairing afoot: Kwon Sang-woo (Pain, Daemul) and Su Ae (Thousand Day Promise) are in talks to possibly star in the new manhwa-to-drama adaptation from Daemul writer Park In-kwon. This series is called Yawang or Queen of Ambition, which is a best approximation in translating the title, a play on “queen” and “ambition.”

It’s about a woman who’s so dirt-poor that she doesn’t even have the means to properly bury her mother, but she pulls herself out of poverty and starts to dream big, deciding one day that she’s going to become the First Lady. The character is described as chock-full of ambition, a woman who will use any means to get what she wants. She sounds as scary as she is impressive. The story isn’t surprising, coming from the creator of Daemul, about the first female president of Korea.

The hero is a nice guy, an innocent man who loves the heroine and will do anything for her. Anything like become the president? Or anything like get his nice guy bum trampled on, while she marries the guy who’s going to be the president? There are two VERY different ways this could go for you, Mr. Nice Guy.

The drama is being produced by Verdi Media, and the screenplay will be adapted by writer Choi Ran (of Iljimae, the Lee Jun-ki version). Yawang hopes to broadcast later this year, and meanwhile Su Ae will be shooting her film with Jang Hyuk, and Kwon Sang-woo his film with Jackie Chan. Busy busy.

Anti-heroines are fun. We don't see them leading k-dramas very often. I'm not crazy about the screenwriter, but I'm willing to give her another shot.

I am glad you are excited about these actors and their upcoming shows but a thread needs more discussion than one person posting over and over. If you want to discuss these shows with other users feel free to start a new topic about them and ask what other users think, but as this thread stands it is more like a blog than an actual forum topic because there is nothing really to discuss it is just various pics and news headlines.

If you want to keep posting newer images or info about these shows I would suggest using their actual CR Library pages to do so. Also you could use your own CR profile page. However the forums aren't really for posting headlines or official updates about shows, they are for discussions and conversations between the users.

Thanks for using the CR forums either way and hope you are enjoying what Drama programs we have to offer on the site!
