Two Weeks

I’m really looking forward to this the most among all the August drama. This is the modern-version of Mandate of Heaven, which has a great cast to portray it. 

Two Weeks is a thriller drama starring Lee Jun-ki as an ordinary man who finds out that he has an eight-year old daughter that he never knew about with his first love, Park Ha-sun. He lives life rather meaninglessly, until he somehow becomes wrongfully accused of murder. He finds out that his daughter has leukemia and embarks on a race against the clock to save the girl’s life, while he also dodges killers and prosecutors and unjust accusations. This ensues a two weeks desperate struggle to save himself and her life.

Penning the drama is writer So Hyun-Kyung of My Daughter Seo Young and 49 Days. Although this a recurring drama concept for the year, Two Weeks was an idea she first began working on in 2007. In fact, she’s already written the first five episodes. This project got pushed back when she got busy working on other shows, but has now gotten the greenlight from MBC.

Two Weeks will premiere in August 7 on MBC, following Queen of the Classroom.

THE CAST

Lee Jun-ki (Arang and the Magistrate) He plays Jang Tae San who is wrongly accused of murder and is now scrambling to save his sick daughter. He never knew his father while his mother cut herself to death on his 8th birthday. He begins to use his fists to resolve  his loneliness, helplessness, and anger in the orphanage. Eventually, he becomes a gangster with no status and name basically, just an underling trying to survive. He pretends to be thick-skinned and not giving a damn on life. However, he is a man who values friendships and his relationships, and loves to laugh and cry a lot. After he meets In Hye, his ice cold heart begins to melt because of his love for her. Moon Il Seok threatens him to turn himself in for his violent acts and if he doesn’t do that, In Hye’s life will be in danger. Hence, he has no choice but to abandon In Hye and send her for abortion, thinking she’ll be happier without him. However, 8 years later, In Hye finds him to ask him to do a bone marrow test because their daughter now has leukemia. His bone marrow and his daughter are a match. Guilt and gratefulness instantly fill his heart.

  1. I’m looking forward to this series because of Lee Jun Ki, hehe! I’ve yet to see any promos-youtube won’t work so I can’t see any but am planning to recap it! Hope it turns out amazing good! I haven’t seen MD Soo Young (any idea how it was?) but loved 49 days-even the ending! 😀

    • Oh that’s great! I’ll probably read your recaps then 😀 Although expect a late reply from me since I need subs 😛 I haven’t seen MD Soo Young but it received good ratings. It’s because of that drama, Lee Bo Young is having a career revival. I also loved 49 Days ❤ I think we can expect great things from this. 2 more days to wait! 😀
