After a prolonged wait, Summer’s Desire is finally ready to face the eager audiences and receive its very first wave of praises and criticism.
The drama has completed its editing stage (it better be damned good to make me wait this long) and is scheduled to air first on FTV (May 30th at 10pm) then on GTV (June 6th at 8pm). The premiere, which will not miss its proper share of advertisement — just as soon as the actors clear a block of their busy schedule for the promotional activities that’s sure to come — will take place Friday night, May 28th.
I’ve skimmed the first of the original trilogy, of which the drama is based on. Gotta confess, not too much of a fan. (To be precise, it’s got a Twilight-esque feeling to it, both in writing style and in theme.) Honestly, if I were five years younger, I might just eat that stuff up… But 1) this is the drama, not the book and 2) since it’s directed and edited from a male perspective, I am interested to see a different take on the obsessive-to-the-point-of-being-unhealthy love.
