It’s a daily drama next for School 2013 and Faith’s Park Se-young, who’s starring in the new KBS drama set to follow Be Strong Mr. Kim next month. The show has a rather bulky title because it’s a famous saying: Sincerity is the Way of Heaven, or perhaps more literally, Sincerity Moves Heaven. Her co-star will be Yoo Gun (Prosecutor Princess, Manzzang), in his first post-army starring role.
The daily will be helmed by the PD of Smile, Donghae and an experienced sitcom writer, with credits as far back as Three Men, Three Women, Nonstop 3, and Hello Franceska. They haven’t released an episode count, but usually daily shows will run for 120 episodes. The funny thing about this show is that every plot description uses the phrase “the main character,” which means there’s no way to tell if it’s the heroine or the hero who will be the focal point of the story, but by my guess, it’ll be Park Se-young who headlines.
So if that’s true, Park Se-young stars as the heroine who was adopted as a young child, and reunites with her birth mother as an adult. Her adoptive family finds out that she’s sought out her birth mother, which naturally causes strife between the two families. It’ll be the story of her finding her place between these two families, and of course discovering a new love along the way. And the reason you couldn’t have just called the drama My Two Moms is…?
I’m glad Park Se-young is moving up to leading roles. She was great in Faith and vastly underutilized in School, likely because they ditched the romance for the bromance on that show (which I cannot in all honesty even pretend to be mad about). Dailies may not be as high-profile as minis, but she’s taking all the right steps to Leading Lady Land. Let’s hope the show is worth its episode count.
Sincerity is the Way of Heaven premieres April 29 on KBS.
