Star’s Lover began airing earlier this month and you can now watch it on mysoju. It stars Choi Ji Woo as Lee Ma Ri, a famous actress(what a stretch) and Yoo Ji Tae as Kim Chul Soo, and, unusually, is a joint Japan-Korea production. While its ratings are still in single-digit region, those who are watching it are apparently loving it.
Lee Ma Ri is a famous actress that is actively pursued by four men. The four men come from different backgrounds and have different aspirations. One is a literature graduate student who dreams of becoming a writer (Yoo Ji Tae), another is a famous photographer (Choi Phillip), the third is the heir to a major chaebol family (Ki Tae Young), and the last man chasing after Ma Ri is a young executive who works at a media corporation (Lee Ki Woo).

Innocent You, meanwhile, looks appealling, mostly for its stars, as the plot sounds too convoluted for me. It began airing on the 22nd and no-one’s posted it with English subs yet(as far as I know).
