Korean Drama Oh My Venus
It is a light romantic comedy starring So Ji Sub and Shin Min-a. This show is subtle, crisp and intriguing and it moved me to tears when Kim Young Ho (in the show) was hospitalized. I love the storyline, casts and the OST of this drama.
This is the plot from Wikipedia:
Kim Young-ho, a.k.a John Kim, is a personal trainer to Hollywood stars. Despite his family's wealth, Young-ho suffered a devastating illness in his childhood. But he believes living a healthy lifestyle and exercise is the only way to survive. He uses this to run from his family issues. His fear of his father and pity for his grandmother. A Hollywood scandal with an actress has him on the run back to Korea.
Kang Joo-eun was once an ulzzang in her teens, semi-famous for her pretty face and enviable figure. Now a 33-year-old lawyer, she has gained a lot of weight since. She passes out on a flight from the U.S. back to Korea and John Kim is the only medical personnel on the flight who takes charge. He watches out for her even after they arrive home. After getting dumped by her boyfriend, Woo Im Shik, she finds that she has the press pass for John Kim and proceeds to (blackmail) convince him to help her loose the weight.
She discovers that Young Ho has a weakness for being a knight in shining armor. She moves in with him, Ji Woong and Jung Sung (Korean Snake), after a stalking incident causes her to sell her apartment. As they work on her physical transformation, both discover they feel more for each than what they will admit. As they grow closer they heal each other's emotional wounds and fall in love.
