MBC’s “Splash Splash Love,” starring BEAST’s Yoon Doo Joon and actress Kim Seul Gi, has once again proved its undying popularity with a staggering number of views; as of February 29, the views for the drama exceeded 10 million.
The drama is a “time-slip” romance between a modern-day high school senior named Dan Bi (Kim Seul Gi) — who falls through a puddle into the Joseon era — and Joseon era king Lee Do (King Sejong; Yoon Doo Joon).
Initially aired on the web as a 10-episode piece, the drama is MBC’s first web drama to be adapted — into two episodes — for TV broadcast. Reception of the drama was so good that viewers, imitating Yoon Doo Joon’s character, have been issuing “royal decrees” for a second season of the show.
Producer Kim Ji Hyun said, “It’s amazing. I believe it’s all thanks to the actors and staff, that this drama is receiving so much love despite the fact that it’s a short, two-episode drama. Thank you so much, and we’ll do our best to always present great dramas.”
