Jung Il-woo in the Web Drama High End Crush.

November 14, 2015

This is the date High End Crush was released on SOHU TV in China. This was a SOHU web drama and had 20 episodes.  It was so successful! In just four months, this web drama has recorded over 200 million views in China. This year it went on air for the first time in South Korean television on April 4, 2018 under the TV channel MBN.

The female lead was played by Jin Se-yeon.  This is the official poster:

The rest of the cast is:

This drama is also known in English as ‘High End Love’ and ‘Clueless High Class Unrequited Love.’  It tells the story of how a very economically rich and powerful CEO in a talent agency falls in love for the very first time.  He falls for a with a beautiful woman who she is rich in honor and common sense. They are very different so a lot hilarious moments of misunderstandings happen between them.

Here is the trailer:

 

This one is a bit different and has subtitles:

 

This fan video is also pretty good at giving the gist of the story:

Sadly, with Dramafever gone from the US, I am not able to see this drama.  I tried finding it in Kocowa and Viki-Rakuten but it’s not there.  I found the drama HERE in YOHU TV. It has over 3 billion views!  Gulp! But I can’t play it here in the US… and it wouldn’t have subtitles anyhow.  It’s funny to see how much their names change in Chinese.  Look:

Ding Yiyu!

So for now I will do three posts, one on videos, screen caps and official photos found in the internet, one on behind the scenes and one on promotional interviews and events. Someday when it is available to me, I will do more posts about it. And re-organize the photos in this one by episode.  I used the site ‘abbyinhallyuland’ to follow a certain order in the photos. She only did recaps until episode 10 so… after that I will post without episode number.

I found a lot of short videos about this drama HERE.

Luckily, I had made some recaps to include in a video celebrating his 10 years of professional life that I completed in 2016.  I’m so glad I kept them!
