[Review] Another Oh Hae Young – 또 오해영


In high school, Just Oh Hae Young (Seo Hyun Jin) was always envious of Pretty Oh Hae Young’s (Jun Hye Bin) life as she was not only pretty but smart and nice.  Sharing the same name did not make life any easier on Oh Hae Young.  However, Hae Young has become pretty satisfied with her life.  She has a steady job, a handsome fiancé and she looked forward to their upcoming nuptials.  That is, until Han Tae Jin (Lee Jae Yoon) abruptly breaks it off the day before their wedding.

The truth of the matter is Tae Jin broke things off as he was facing jail time for corrupt business practices.  Using his connections with a powerful CEO, Park Do Kyung (Eric) was instrumental in breaking the happy couple up due to a slight misunderstanding.  He assumed “Oh Hae Young” was the same Oh Hae Young who left him at the altar one year ago.  Learning of the misunderstanding, Do Kyung begins to see visions of the future involving him and Hae Young.

Jive Monkey Playlist: 7/22/16

With the end of another week, I was wondering what I would feature on this post.  And like a refreshing wave crashing on the summer shores, here comes f(x) with a brand new single and music video.  For me, they truly represent summer.

Their newest single is called “All Mine” produced by the SM Station project.  Started by the SM label earlier this year, it is a digital music project aiming to showcase not only SM artists and producers but have them collaborate with other artists outside of SM, including international artists, songwriters and producers.  A new digital track is released every Friday.
