Oh My Lady releases preview and promo photos
How cute are they? A bunch of stills, behind-the-scenes photos, and the preview are out for SBS’s upcoming Oh! My Lady, which is two weeks from its premiere. Chae Rim looks adorable, and Choi Siwon ain’t looking too bad himself.
In the drama, Choi Siwon plays Sung Min-woo, a hot young actor who gets saddled with ajumma manager Yoon Kae-hwa (Chae Rim). Although Min-woo is described as a “top star,” I’m thinking he’s not so much modeled after Jang Dong-gun/Lee Dong-wook/Hyun Bin, and maybe more like Song Seung-heon, because in the preview Kae-hwa mutters, “What kind of actor has such lousy acting?”
The preview doesn’t really grab my interest, and aside from the line above, I didn’t think much of it. But this drama is still on my to-watch list, because I like the fluffy premise and I think Chae Rim is talented and adorable. I also like the bit where they make Choi Siwon a famous actor who can’t act, and Kae-hwa uses that as her pitch: “What does Sung Min-woo need in order to become a serious actor?” (Aside from talent, I’m assuming the answer is Kae-hwa as a manager.)
As it takes over on Mondays and Tuesdays when Wish Upon a Star ends next week, we can expect that Oh My Lady will have a similarly mild tone (as in, not too edgy and generally feel-good) to correspond to its early-evening timeslot. Since I’m enjoying Wish Upon a Star, I’m happy if the next drama carries over the upbeat, enjoyable vibe.
The first episode airs on March 22.
And here’s the preview. Like I said, it’s nothing too exciting, but I’m hoping the actual drama is better:
