Myung Se-bin, Song Jong-ho cast in Three Sisters
SBS’s current daily drama Wife Returns will be wrapping up its run soon, and taking over its slot is the new series Three Sisters, which stars Myung Se-bin in her return to television and Song Jong-ho, recently of the melodrama Will It Snow For Christmas.
Three Sisters actually features two sets of sister trios; the drama tells a “touching and lively story” about one trio in the older generation, and another in the younger. Myung Se-bin plays the main lead as the oldest sister who gave up university to take care of her family. This marks Song Jong-ho’s fourth time playing a doctor (the other three are Surgeon Bong Dal-hee, Cain & Abel, and Golden Age of My Life). His marriage ends in divorce when his wife has an affair, and he thereafter adopts womanizing ways, until he meets and falls for Jo Ahn (Everybody Cha Cha Cha).
Myung Se-bin’s last television role was in the 2007 drama Goong S, in which she was just about the only actor who did much real acting. (The acting in that drama was so subpar all across the board that that’s not even hyperbole.) But don’t judge her from that choice; some of her better roles include The Woman Who Wants To Marry (2004’s original series, which was sequeled recently) and Wedding. This is also her first drama since her 2008 divorce.
Also starring are Kim Hae-in (Chuno) and Shin Jin-soo (Jejoongwon). Three Sisters will air its first episode on April 19.
