The Greatest Love

Given Synopsis (
A former K-pop girl group singer discovers she can extend her 15 minutes of fame by associating herself with a top actor so that she can continue to support her family. Goo Ae Jung (Gong Hyo Jin) is a former leader of the popular girl group National Treasure Girls until an internal scandal caused the group’s disbandment and her fall from grace. Years later, Ae Jung makes a living by appearing on game shows and variety shows as a C-list minor celebrity so that she can support her father, brother and nephew as the sole breadwinner. After several run-ins with top actor Dok Ko Jin (Cha Seung Won), Ae Jung discovers that being associated with an actor at the top of his game helps to raise her status and increases her demand on television and radio shows. Ko Jin, on the other hand, experiences a strange palpitation whenever he hears one of Ae Jung’s past hit songs, which he mistakes for love, and he decides he wants to help Ae Jung emerge from under the shroud of scandal from her past. But Kang Se Ri (Yoo In Na), Ae Jung’s former group mate, again feels competitive with her when Yoon Pil Joo (Yoon Kye Sang), an oriental medicine doctor, sets his eyes on Ae Jung. Will Ae Jung’s 15 minutes of fame be finally over? “The Greatest Love” is a 2011 South Korean drama series directed by Park Hong Kyun and Lee Dong Yoon.

   It has been a while since I watched this and I can't really recall much of what I initially felt upon watching it. I do remember thinking that though it was a fluffy kind of drama, I probably wouldn't watch it again. It didn't give me much of a strong impression. It was a light-hearted watch that made you smile because of the cute moments the characters shared. A lot of the moments were cliche drama moments. Very light-hearted and didn't leave a strong impression on me.
