1% of Something (aka 1% of Anything) stars two leads that I’m certain I’ve seen in other dramas — I’m just not sure which ones yet. The formula is familiar to us all; a chaebol and working class girl come together because she does a kindness to his grandfather and the grandfather wants this girl to become the wife of his surly, arrogant, detached and dismissive grandson. So in order for grandson to get the whole of the company, and for her to become rich and receive shares in the company, they must marry.
Both are, initially, not interested. She’s a kindhearted, but feisty school teacher who thinks that he’s a jerk and trying to run a scam on her. He’s also of the mind that she’s probably a gold digger who seduced his grandfather somehow. Funny thing is that she doesn’t know who his grandfather is because the man she helped to the hospital looked poor and grandpa is purposely not letting her see him.
So the two agree to 6 mos of dating in order to appease grandpa, but both have no intention of marrying the other.. And of course the relationship grows nicely, although his arrogant and jerky ways are going to take some time to change. But change he does, slowly but surely. There are also rivalries that get in the way, old wounds that need healing, and for the backstabbing within the family to resolve. The chemistry between this couple is pretty good, and they are both really good kissers although they haven’t had that many so far. I’m 9 eps in out of 15, and each ep is about 40- 45 mins—- give or take a minute.
It’s a light, cute, and romantic drama. I’m enjoying it. I tried checking to see if anyone saw this drama previously and couldn’t find anything…hope Im not being redundant…..
