Que Sera, Sera / 케세라, 세라

Que Sera Sera

2007, 17-episode Korean drama that starred Eric Moon (Shinhwa) as an average guy trying to make it in high-society Korea and thus loses his soul as a result of his efforts.

At the start, he's entangled with a rich chick who has given up on true love and uses her money, influence, and appearance to keep men at her side.

At the same time, he and the prerequisite mousy chick bump into one another in the hallway of their shared apartment complex, and they don't hit it off.

She ends up getting a job at the same company where Eric's character works, and which the rich chick's father owns.

He hates the mouse / he loves the mouse / he uses the rich girl / he chooses the rich girl / he lies to the mouse / he confesses to the mouse / he tries to dump the rich girl / rich girl gets even / several episodes of angst ........ etc.

This one also had the foolhardy oma who gambles away the family fortune, a deceased ahpah, and a Dong-saeng with a terminal heart condition.

Perhaps this was about the time when this formula had already run its course and even the ahjumma set were getting tired of watching the same, old sh*t day after day, I don't know - but I do know I'm over it, and the next time I decide to watch something that even REMOTELY resembles this scenario, I'm gonna pass and look for something else to waste my time.
