We had a great time at AWA this year! We had lots of anime, game, and drama fans stop by in in great cosplay.  We had a hard time picking a winner for the cosplay contest, but we wound up choosing this great cosplay for Madam Red from the anime Kuroshitsuji.  She not only had a lovely costume, but she also portrayed the character very convincingly.  She wound up choosing the OST to the recent drama Heartstrings since she is a big fan of CNBLUE.  We would like to give a shout out to everyone that stopped by our booth, and we can’t wait to see everyone at AWA again next year.

Paradise Ranch will be released on November 2nd.  The drama can now be found for pre-order on East Tide Drama’s website, so be sure to check it out!

Paradise Ranch is a story about a young couple who married too young, and yet even after a quick divorce can’t seem to get over one another.  It stars Lee Yeon Hee (East of Eaden) as Lee Da Ji and Shim Changmin (TVXQ) as Han Dong Joo who play the former lovers forced to work together in order to save Da Ji’s beloved ranch.  The charming ranch is located on Jeju Island and as a result the drama contains breathtaking scenery from the island.  Joo Sang Wook (Giant) and Yoo Ha Na (The Sons of Sol Pharmacy House) also star in the drama about past love and new beginnings.

Han Dong Joo and Lee Da Ji fall in love at nineteen and impulsively get married.  Their marriage doesn’t last long, and they soon grow apart.  Han Dong Joo, the heir to a corporation, is sent back to Jeju in order to oversee a project and runs into his former wife who has taken over her family ranch.  Da Ji is trying to protect her ranch which she may lose as a resort built by Dong Joo’s family gains rights to the land and goes to him for help.

When Seo Yoonho (Joo Sang Wook) the president of the resort also steps in to help, a rivalry grows between the two men – but, is it over the resort or over Da Ji?  Park Jin Young (Yoo Ha Na) who is Dong Joo’s new love interest also arrives on the island to complicate matters further.  Will Paradise Ranch bring these former lovers together, or will they move on separate paths with new loves?

For those of you who have already watched the drama, feel free to leave your own thoughts and comments about the drama below.  On November 2nd one of the comments will be selected, and the participant will be sent a free copy of the drama’s OST!
