Nam Sang-mi joins Life Is Beautiful
A leading lady has been selected for the next drama from hit writer Kim Soo-hyun, called Life Is Beautiful: bubbly actress Nam Sang-mi. Nam just wrapped up her last drama, the good-natured but underperforming romantic comedy series Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang, and now will join Song Chang-eui, who has been cast as the lead.
Life Is Beautiful will be a weekend series airing on SBS, and is highly anticipated because writer Kim has produced hit after hit with dramas like Mom’s Dead Upset and My Man’s Woman. In fact, since 2000, she has written six dramas, all of which have passed 20% ratings. The show is set on Jeju Island and will include familiar members from Kim’s pool of returning actors like Jang Mi-hee, Kim Hae-sook, and Kim Sang-joong.
According to Nam Sang-mi’s management, the actress participated in the script rehearsal on January 7, where she met the writer for the first time. In contrast to her usual bright and lively image, she’ll play a calm, composed character in this show. Life Is Beautiful will air in March.
