Funny what a difference one project makes: After Pasta and My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho, all I could muster for Pretty Emo Boy Noh Min-woo was indifference. Then you put him in four episodes of ’80s-music-themed Rock Rock Rock, and suddenly he’s adorable, energetic, and emotive.
I’m hoping it’s the latter Noh Min-woo we get to see in Midas, the SBS Monday-Tuesday drama which, if you base on these previews, is about…uh…something. I’m not sure what. But it’s intense and exciting, perhaps. And it’s about MIDAS.
Official descriptions to give us a few more details, such as how it’s set in the business world and deals with the conspiracies and betrayals of the chaebol world. It stars Jang Hyuk, Lee Min-jung, and Kim Hee-ae; Noh Min-woo plays the latter’s younger brother, a rich playboy from a chaebol family.
Midas follows Athena, which oddly enough ends on a Monday without a special or extra broadcast. That means Midas‘s first episode will air on Tuesday, February 22.
