Tbh, I can’t quite remember the plot of Lovers In Paris (it must be the age), but I can never forget how it made me feel. While watching the series (aired on a local TV station) in 2005, I can fondly recall a specific swimming pool scene that made my heart beat so fast, I felt like it was popping out of my chest. That was my first kilig reaction to a K-drama, which made me believe that destiny will always find a way.

After doing my research for a quick recap, I can now retrieve the memories in my head. Lovers In Paris revolves around the story of Kang Tae Young, who goes to Paris to study film. Since we all know how *expensive* it is to live in the City of Lights, Tae Young beomes a housekeeper for a CEO named Han Ki Joo to make ends meet. She loved it there because she could do anything that she wanted! And just when she was truly enjoying life, she gets fired.

But due to a *potential* business partnership with a client, Ki Joo had to ask Tae Young to come back and act as his fiancé. Tae Young also meets Ki Joo’s nephew, who falls for her charm. Just imagine two family members fighting over you—sis, your beauty is really out of this world. After a series of revelations and a separation, Ki Joo and Tae Young rekindle their romance again after years, in the same country where they met. But we were also *shookt* by the drama’s ending, only to find out *spoiler warning*...that it was all in Tae Young's imagination! Anyway, we still love it, though.

Lovers In Paris
 is written by Kim Eun Sook and is one of the highest-rating K-dramas of all time. It even won the Daesang (grand prize) award for television in the 41st Baeksang Art Awards. ICYDK, the award-giving body is the equivalent of the Oscars in South Korea, and that itself already says a lot. The drama was also super popular in the Philippines that ABS-CBN did not only do a Filipino-dubbed version, but also a remake in 2009 starring KC Concepcion, Piolo Pascual, and Zanjoe Marudo!

In 2016, the actress tied the knot with her non-celebrity boyfriend (who is believed to be a second-generation chaebol). She then revealed in a TV show how he sweetly proposed to her: “His father had passed away the previous year and one day, he said that he needed to tell his father that he’s getting married and so he asked me to go to his father’s grave with him. There, he said, ‘Father, we’re getting married,’ and proposed to me. He told me that he wanted to propose in front of his dad and had even prepared a ring. I cried immediately.” Aww!

After her marriage, Jung Eun went on a hiatus. Last year, she signed an exclusive contract with her new agency to mark the restart of her career. She’s currently the lead in the thriller drama My Dangerous Wife, where she plays the role of a wife caught in a kidnapping incident (Clue: She’s not the victim).
