Gah, I love Kim Soo-hyun’s taste in men. It probably goes without saying that a hit drama writer gets all the good men (for her dramas, ahem) but she sure knows how to pick ‘em. The star writer’s got two regulars back on the bandwagon for her next drama, a weekender called Thrice Married Woman, set to air on SBS in the fall. Up for the male leads are Ha Suk-jin (Shark) and Song Chang-eui (The Great Seer), but don’t worry, there are two sisters — Han Ga-in and Eom Ji-won — for them to romance, so they needn’t fight.
Rumor had it that Chun Jung-myung (Man of Honor) was set to star, but despite being in attendance for the first script read, Chun has officially dropped the project due to scheduling concerns. Ha Suk-jin is now being courted to take the role, and is still considering (technically, the whole cast is “still considering,” since the script read was an early informal one, before contracts and negotiations).
There are reunions all around, which is pretty commonplace for a Kim Soo-hyun drama: she’s working with the PD of her last three dramas again, Song Chang-eui starred in Life Is Beautiful, and Ha Suk-jin starred in Childless Good Fortune, along with Eom Ji-won. The family weekender will be about a mom and her two daughters, and we aren’t given much else to go on for the characters.
It could be the expected combination of one leading man for each sister, or it could be that Han Ga-in marries three men, per the title. I’d be kinda disappointed if someone doesn’t get married three times, even if it’s not her. I’m just glad that after getting the shaft in Shark (Wasted character. So disappointed. Don’t even get me started.) Ha Suk-jin will be getting a meaty role this time around.
Thrice Married Woman follows Goddess of Marriage on SBS, which puts the premiere sometime in November.
