Seo Joon-young joins tvN rom-com Superdaddy Yeol

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Will you ever get the girl, Seo Joon-young? The main cast has been assembled for tvN’s newest drama Superdaddy Yeol, the heartwarming romantic comedy about a single mother who has one year left to live and spends it turning her ex-boyfriend into A-plus daddy material for her nine-year-old daughter. Lee Yuri (Jang Bori Is Here) stars as the mom, and Lee Dong-gun (Mi-rae’s Choice) plays the hapless ex, the titular Superdaddy-to-be.

The drama is a webtoon adaptation from a newbie writer (with a Drama City episode credit), but it’ll be helmed by PD Song Hyun-wook of last year’s charming and hilarious rom-com Marriage Not Dating, which makes me excited. Lee Yuri plays a successful doctor who’s got her life together and managed to raise her daughter on her own. But a terminal illness means she has to plan for her girl’s future without her, and she decides to wrangle Lee Dong-gun into a contract marriage to whip him into father-figure shape.

Lee Dong-gun plays a washed-up baseball player, eternal bachelor, and general loser. But he jumps at the chance to contract-marry Lee Yuri because she happens to be the love of his life that got away. Naturally it’s the farthest thing from smooth sailing there is, since she needs a responsible partner and he’s just an overgrown manchild. But he’ll grow up, slowly but surely, and they’ll reignite their romance in the process.

Seo Ye-ji (Records of a Night Watchman) has already been cast as Lee Dong-gun’s physical therapist who pines after him. Seo Joon-young (Secret Door) will play yet another doctor on the cast — he’s a classmate of Lee Yuri’s from medical school, and will rival Lee Dong-gun for her affections.

Supporting player Choi Min (There Is a Cat) will be a major league pitcher who incites the hero’s jealousy at the career he should’ve had, and child actress Lee Re (Wish, Oh Ja-ryong Is Coming) plays the precocious nine-year-old who resents Lee Dong-gun for trying to replace her dad. She thinks Dad is just abroad and coming back for her someday, but that’s just what Mom told her when he died. I’m sure she’ll make the hero’s life a living hell, but that’ll just make their inevitable bonding that much sweeter.

Superdaddy Yeol follows Heart to Heart on Fridays and Saturdays in March.

:-) The child actress is more put together than all the other company shots of the adults.

Look at the ribbon matching the skirt. Plus the double ruffled look. And it's not even normal sleeves.

:-) Woah.

This sounds interesting although if mom is dying why is there a resurrected romance with dad in training?

I WUFF H2H very much and don't want to think that it will end but if the follow up is good, then it will lessen the pain.

I laughed and cried at the same time. Too true. But since this is a rom-com, I hope he doesn't! The boy needs to remain alive one of these days.

Aw! I'm okay with him not getting the girl. It's him and Lee Je Hoon that gets me sad because one always dies and I just want more bromance. If they can headline a drama together as besties, that'd be great!

Anyways, this drama is shaping up nicely. I can't wait because I really came to adore Lee Yuri, and she was the crazy reason (along with Secretary Moon) for why I kept watching Jang Bori. Hope for lots of cute before the terminal illness kicks in! :)

I've yet to understand why this guy hasn't got any leads in a regular drama (apart from Sirius). Such a shame but hopefully he will get a lead role and more importantly his acting recognised in the future.

Despite having seen more than 100 K Dramas, I'm still very much an outsider, and the headline and article reinforce this:

"the heartwarming romantic comedy" - my quaint concept of romance and comedy NEVER include the foreknowledge that one of the leads will DIE, not at some unspecified future time of old age, but as an integral part of the plot, indeed the whole POINT of the plot. It does seem that Koreans are very happy to call a pre-ordained tragic death "a heartwarming comedy", so I guess that's one divide that will never be crossed. I'm looking forward to this Drama and hope it's good, but it ain't no romcom, for me.

romantic comedy about a single mother who has one year left to live

::blink:: I think maybe the marketing department doesn't understand what 'comedy' means.

Yeah, slow downward spiral into death, leaving behind your kid does not equal laughs galore.
