GET into a romantic Koreanovela frenzy as love-and-music-themed “My Lovely Girl” and wacky “Marriage Not Dating” mark their cable television debuts to spice up weekend nights on Jeepney TV this August.
Reminisce over both love and pain in a two-hour serving every Saturday night of “My Lovely Girl” starring Korean superstar Rain and girl group f(x) member Krystal Jung. Still guilty for the death of his girlfriend Stella, talent scout and CEO Henry (Rain) searches for Stella’s sister, Celine (Krystal), an aspiring singer and songwriter. In the midst of healing through music, the two develop feelings for each other. Henry, however, faces restraint as he remembers his painful past.
Meanwhile, weekend evenings liven up with a whirlwind of backfired plans and a crazy search for love in “Marriage Not Dating.” Wealthy plastic surgeon Gong Gi-tae has no interest in getting married, while marriage is all shop girl Joo Jang-mi dreams about. In order to stop the blind dates set up by his parents, Gi-tae introduces Jang-mi as his girlfriend, certain that they would never approve of her. But plans go awry, and the two get tangled in both pretend and real feelings.
