Love in Paradise island - Paradise Ranch/Farm

This series currently airing in SBS channel every Monday and Tuesday. A sweet comedy romantic drama with a gorgeous scenery and background of Jeju island and Australia land. But the reason i watched because of the lead Male from DBSK group Max Chang Min plays as a third generation of chaebol who married in very young age -19 years old- with Lee Yeon Hee (East of Eden), a prodigy veterinarian who fell in love with horses.The young couple then quickly separated and divorced and return to their own life.
But they realizes that they still have feeling for each other but another man, Joo Sang Wook (Giant, Queen Seon Duk) tries to capture Lee Yeon Hee’s heart.

A teenage married life is quite new in K-drama, but i assume that it’s not the back bone of the story. It’ll be the battle of a love triangle which will dominate the drama.
That makes Paradise Ranch has nothing new to be presented in the story department, but hopefully the acting and chemistry will entertain us.


* Title: Paradise Ranch
* Genre: Romance, melodrama
* Episodes: 16
* Broadcast network: SBS
* Broadcast period: 2011-Jan-24 to 2011-Mar-??

Two young kiddos in love attempt to run away and elope against their parents’ wishes, but due to her age — she’s 19, he’s 21 — they require parental consent. So instead, they return home and beg the adults to agree to the marriage, and surprisingly it’s his grandfather who relents first and convinces the others to let the kids marry.

The couple has their honeymoon period of wedded bliss… and then, inevitably, problems arise (though we are given no specifics in our heroine’s brief introduction). They divorce after six months and go their separate ways.

And then, we’re six years later.

Now for our real introduction to LEE DA-JI (Lee Yeon-hee), now 25, a veterinarian with a specialty in horses. She works at Paradise Ranch, a small farm on Jeju Island where she lives with her father and her pesky younger sister DA-EUN.
Da-ji loves horses but doesn’t actually seem to be very good with them, which is either a weird quirk or a flaw in the writing of the drama. I can’t decide which. Her boss cluck-clucks about her inability to go 10 minutes without getting herself into some sort of trouble, which seems pretty on the mark. She’s bubbly, vivacious, and optimistic, so it’s easy to like her although one wonders how she managed to become a vet, as her competence has yet to be demonstrated.
She is sent by her cheapskate boss to a horse auction in Australia, with specific instructions on what kind of animal she is to buy. As she looks over her top pick, another prospective horse-buyer notices her — her ex-husband, HAN DONG-JOO (Shim Chang-min).

Dong-joo, now 27, is the spoiled, lazy heir to Dongin Group and director at DI Resort, a sprawling new development on Jeju Island that neighbors Paradise Ranch. In fact DI’s presence is encroaching on the ranch’s own — it’s a You’ve Got Mail-esque battle between the little guys and the big corporate power — but the kids don’t yet know the connection.
