Chae Rim begins filming Oh My Lady
If you’re like me, hearing the description of a drama featuring a “typical, ordinary Korean ajumma” with a child may run the risk of turning you off, but as with Last Scandal of My Life, I think SBS’s Oh! My Lady has potential. Plus: Chae Rim looks adorable.
Chae Rim plays Kae-hwa, a manager with a musical production company who is stuck with managing top star Min-woo (Super Junior’s Choi Siwon), whose first love Yoon-jung (Park Han-byul) is a marketing manager of a fashion brand. The production company CEO, Shi-jun, is played by Lee Hyun-woo, who is married to top choreographer Moon Jung-hee. Kae-hwa’s ex-husband is a venture capitalist played by Yoo Tae-woong. Got all that?
Chae Rim has been playing older than her age for the past couple of years, which I find interesting since she’s still quite young (she’s 30, and will turn 31 as Oh My Lady begins airing) and doesn’t automatically seem like ajumma material. She was 28 when she played 33-year-old Dal-ja in Dal Ja’s Spring, then played a thirtysomething single mother in last year’s Job Well Done. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, just interesting given Korea’s obsession with youth, but perhaps that’s where the good roles are?
The romantic comedy premieres on March 22, taking over the Monday-Tuesday slot from Wish Upon a Star.
