Moon Sori, Kim Hye-ja for new KBS drama Unkind Women

The PD of the hit drama My Daughter Seo-young and the writer of Equator Man are teaming up for a Wednesday-Thursday drama for KBS in the new year, and wooing actresses Moon Sori (Law of Attraction) and Kim Hye-ja (Mother) to return to the small screen to star. If she signs on, it’ll have been seven years since Moon Sori has done a full-length television series (2008’s My Golden Age, and before that 2007’s Legend), while Kim Hye-ja headlined JTBC’s I Live in Cheongdam-dong three years ago.

The new series is called Unkind Women and features three generations of women who “share the same hot blood,” living under one roof. Kim Hye-ja is being courted to play the head matriarch, a cooking instructor with an infamous sharp tongue and a proclivity for swearing. She teaches a cooking class that’s so popular that there’s a ten-month wait to get in, and she’s known for cutting her students — mostly chaebol daughters-in-law — down to size. But she’s also the kind of woman who’s experienced a good deal of tribulation in her life, and uses her strength to help others.

Moon Sori has been offered the role of her troublemaker daughter, who’s lived a wayward life and only recently come to appreciate the love of her family. There will be another daughter with a lonely secret, and a granddaughter as well. It’s a family of women who aren’t very nice, figuring out how to love, succeed, and find happiness together.

Aw, it sounds like a lovely combo of strong women and heartwarming family drama. Directing is PD Yoo Hyun-ki (My Daughter Seo-young, Brain, God of Study), and writing is Kim In-young (When a Man Loves, Equator Man, The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry).

Unkind Women is being planned for 24 episodes, and follows King’s Face in February.

The plot like mash up the daily drama plus weekend family drama. Maybe this will attract ahjumma to watch it at night. So who will be cast as the husbands, boyfriend, son. I want to see Yoon Joon Sang to be one of the man in this drama.

And Kim Nam Joo should be his wife or love interest lol.
Seriously, I am craving for a reunion of the two of them after Unexpected You. They were just so freakin' adorable and had so much chemistry as a couple. Best married couple ever <3

Call me biased and deprived but it's the kind of drama that I would really want to see Sooyoung in.
As you pointed out, it is "a lovely combo of strong women and heartwarming family drama" and I am just a sucker for it so why not ?
And I know that she has just finished My Spring Days but damn it, I can't seem to wait another year for her next project ...

On a sidenote, KBS is really in need of another hit lol. I remember back in 2012/2013, they had so many high rated KDramas that it was really difficult to reward them all whereas this year, I really don't know how they are going to handle it XD.
Gosh', this is going to be so awkward for year end ceremonies :)

This is the drama competing with Jekyll and I and Kill me, Heal me right? Because I can already see the winner and it's not a drama with mentally challenged heroes. This sounds like something most ahjummas would love...

Is this really Rim's new drama? But it's female-centric I don't want him to be "some guy the awesome lead girl falls in love with" again like in Surplus Princess. *creying*
