SEOUL, Sep. 14 (Yonhap) -- "Lovers of the Red Sky," a romance fantasy historical series, has started showing a clear growth in the South Korean drama market with its well-constructed plot.

The series starring actress Kim You-jung and actor Ahn Hyo-seop has gathered more interested in that the star PD Jang Tae-yoo, who made a hit with drama "My Love From the Star," has taken over the directing.

The drama draws a quite obvious love story between Hong Chun-ki (Kim) and Ha-ram (Ahn) jumping over their fates with eyes' as the connection between them. But the well-constructed storyline does not let the series to be seen boring.

The process in which the main characters first build a relationship and reunites later enhances the viewers' concentration. Especially the scene where the two meet in a field of peach blossoms was impressive enough to be called the drama's highlight.
