We are dating now drama
Cha-hee is confident that Jae-young will still be interested in her no matter what, and she’s right – so she wins the bet with Ho-jung.The surprising development here is that the encounter between the two girls forges an enduring friendship.
Instead of falling for Kyo-in, the boy next door, Ho-jung embarks on a series of disappointing and usually one-sided romances.Ho-jung maintains her dignity, but she is beginning to realize that her trusting nature is not serving her well in the love department.And sadly, she remains unlucky in love (and STILL is not being paired with Kyo-in).Ho-jung is devastated when she learns that he is instead taken with her classmate Cha-hee (Yoon-young Choi), a bold and self assured beauty who could not care less if one more man finds her attractive.The indignant Ho-jung confronts Cha-hee, impulsively betting her that Jae-young will not want to have anything to do with her if he learns she is only a high school student and not in college like himself.Her family consists of her overbearing mother (prickly Young-ae Kim), the primary breadwinner in the family who drives a taxi, her gentle, hen-pecked father (played with sympathetic warmth by Ji-hee Han), wise maternal grandmother, and younger brother Ho-jae (the wonderful Sang Woo Kwon) who is an immature charmer primarily interested in finding a rich girlfriend to support him.
Ho-jung has a best friend who is as close to her as a sister.
Su-ji’s parents love and spoil her, but it has not gone to her head.
Her personality is warm, sympathetic, and generous, but she is way too soft-hearted for her own good, especially when it comes to her best friend’s brother Ho-jae.
He is infuriatingly selfish, and enjoys teasing her even while borrowing money from her to take his girlfriends out on dates – but she is reluctantly drawn to him anyway.
Renting the apartment downstairs from the Yoons are Kyo-in Choi (Ji-sub So, who as always is a man you can’t take your eyes off) and his hard-working older sister Kyos-sun (Na-woon Kim).
Its leading actress, Rim Chae, was already familiar to me as the ‘good girl’ lead in All About Eve, and in We Are Dating Now she is even more endearing -- like a Korean Sandra Dee. Unlike other dramas I’ve watched, We Are Dating Now has a very simple plotline.
