Chae Rim and Choi Siwon in Oh My Lady

This kind of seems like an odd pairing, but perhaps the story will carry it: Chae Rim (Dal Ja’s Spring) and Super Junior’s Choi Siwon have been cast as the leads in SBS’s new drama Oh My Lady.

Chae Rim plays an ordinary housewife who becomes the manager of a top star in this romantic comedy series. Her character is a spunky 35-year-old ajumma who takes the job to earn money so she can take back her young child, who is in the care of her husband. Choi’s character is a prickly actor who finds himself in an absurd living situation with Chae Rim, but then falls for her. Directing is Family Honor‘s Park Young-soo, and the drama begins filming in early February.

Although I raised my eyebrows at first glance, the more I mull it over, the more I can see this happening. Chae Rim is a bright actress who can do both comedy and drama, and although I have been largely unimpressed by idol-stars-turned-actors, I thought Choi Siwon was thoroughly adorable (and showed decent comic timing) in the sageuk comedy Story of Hyang Dan. I can already picture him pulling off the spoiled actor role in an updated sort of Full House meets Last Scandal.

Their real-life age difference is 8 years; by the time the drama airs, Chae Rim will have newly turned 31 and Choi Siwon will have turned 23. That’s not too different from the age difference in Dal Ja’s Spring, and with all the ’81 and now ’82 actors heading off to military service, I think we’ll be seeing more of these older-women/younger-men romances. It may become an overused plot point, but what else can you do when all your top actors are suddenly in the early-twenties generation? You can either pretend they’re older, or roll with it.

Oh My Lady will take over the timeslot from current series Wish Upon a Star starting in March, which indicates two things: (1) SBS is sticking with its 9pm Monday-Tuesday experiment, and (2) this will probably have a similarly light, funny tone.

Okay, the list of must-see 2010 dramas is getting WAY too long! Loved her in Dal Ja's Spring (I miss her curly hair though) and he was too cute in Hyang Dan (great facial expressions)! I'm very excited about this drama.

2010 is THE year to be in the ICOMYM Club, that's for sure. Even top actresses wanna join!

:-D

Thanks JB!

I have no problem with noona love. I wish it becomes the trends, maybe in long run it will ease off marriage pressure for women in 30's or 40's . What i don't get is where are the guys who are out from the military. And hallyu stars like Won Bin, SSH, LDG, Rain, LBH ( we got Iris so i can understand).... and so many other A list actors who are above 30's. Gong Yoo is back, i really hope he don't follow Won Bin trend.

Chae-Rim of Dalja Spring would be nice, but the story line seems more like Good Job Good Job, which makes me nervous. Chae Rim's Good Job x 2 character was a little hard to watch as she was just always full of angst about custody of her child, what to do about the baby daddy, how she feels about the one she loves versus just being with the baby daddy for the sake of the child, etc.

This one seems similar in concept - an ordinary housewife turned pop star manager with a child custody issue battling baby-daddy / husband and dealing with a possession triangle... but if the comedic element is highlighted, then maybe we can get more of a Full House kind of vibe and then it won't be so serious with respect to child custody issues...

I am SOOOOO excited for this. There are way too many upcoming dramas that I want to watch, and I've been waiting for Choi SiWon to come out in another drama for forever. <3 him!

I don't know which pairing is odder, Son Ye Jin - Lee MinHo or this one, but I hope they don't disappoint! :D

older women+younger men is really in trend is it? ahjumma must be really happy since their daydreaming comes into a drama in front of their eyes. now they can imagine their dreams better. and we, the younger generation lost our daydreaming with our fav actor to the ahjummas. like it or not, i think i have to get in use with it... T-T

Such good news! I love Chae Rim, I really loved in Dal Ja's spring, and I think Siwon is a pretty decent actor, considering he is a idol. I just hope they will be able to build a chemistry between them^^

mmm, i wonder what it would have been like if choi siwon was the struggling one with a kid (young father and all), while chae rim would be the haughty actress forced to live with him. otherwise it reminds me a little too much of last scandal.

Seems exciting !!! Siwon's return to dramas as well as Chae Rim's comedic side. SBS is getting better and better with its drama line up!

Anyone else feel that the Title is wayyy too typical/cliche. It better undergo a massive change. Anything with "Oh" ...."My" and "Lady" or "Girl" sounds lame...The PDs need to be more creative !

I'm excited and even though Choi Siwon is an idol, in the two dramas he has been in 18 vs. 29 and Story of Hyang-dan, he was pretty adorable and fun to watch. And I had been hoping that he would return back to dramas, so I'm happy. Can't wait to see him act again! And it does sound a bit like Dal Ja's Spring, so that's even more a plus (:

Wow. 2010 is full of great anticipation. What is this ANOTHER drama for me to watch out for. I like how Choi Siwon is a pretty decent actor that I won't be going like "Oh god..." the entire time at the non-acting going on on screen (I don't think I need to explain what dramas I'm talking about).

What is seriously up with these drama names?!
