Lee Yoon-ji joins tvN’s Ex-Girlfriend Club

Someone’s leaving a giant trail of broken hearts in his wake. Cable network tvN’s new Friday-Saturday drama Ex-Girlfriend Club stars Byun Yo-han (Misaeng) as a webtoon creator who uses his own love life as his artistic subject matter, and then has to face all of his ex-girlfriends’ wrath when they discover that he’s aired their dirty laundry in public. Song Ji-hyo (Emergency Couple) has signed on to co-star, and now Lee Yoon-ji (Dr. Frost, King’s Family) will be joining the ranks of girlfriends past.

The new romantic comedy from the PD of Miss Korea and Golden Time and the writer of I Am Sam stars Byun Yo-han as a webtoon artist who is either clueless or brazen enough to create a series detailing all of his past relationships. Song Ji-hyo plays a producer at a failing movie production house, who gets the assignment to adapt his popular webtoon into a movie. She’s horrified to discover that the creator is her ex-boyfriend, and that she’s one of the girlfriends portrayed in the webtoon. AWKWARD.

Lee Yoon-ji has been cast to play another of his exes: She’s a highly successful woman who works at an investment firm and has top-notch qualifications in the corporate world. But contrary to her perfect-on-paper appearance, she’s actually a bit bumbling. She’s someone who goes after what she wants, without hesitation.

Also joining the ex-girlfriend club is Jang Ji-eun (Gu-am Heo Jun), who plays Byun Yo-han’s first love noona. She ended up marrying a wealthy man and divorcing him, but remained as cool and aloof about it as ever. Idol and newbie actress Ryu Hwa-young (Today’s Love) plays yet another ex: Her character is a third-rate actress who’s dumb as a post.

The rom-com will be about ALL of Byun Yo-han’s ex-girlfriends reentering his life at the same time, and how he deals with the mass-reunion. I hope they twist expectation and have the women become friends — that’d be hilarious, not to mention cosmically fair.

Ex-Girlfriend Club follows Superdaddy Yeol in May.

Impressive webtoon writer the hero is all these good looking and impressive sounding women being his exes.

I hope the drama shows His flaws why he couldn't last with any of the women.

I was already interested based on the writer and main male lead. Now I am laughing at the hell he is going to get from the 5 women. No 5 would be the current girlfriend right?

He is very cute! He's probably a self-centred player too.

This one sounds like it'll be hilarious, especially if I get to watch all these unique ladies ganging up on him at some point. Poor Byun Yo-han. But it's a rare kind of set-up where I wouldn't mind watching psycho ex-girlfriends hanging around for a while. Please don't disappoint. 2015 has been good to us so far.

I love Lee Yoon-ji, wish we got to see her in more lead roles (thought she'd be a shoo-in after Wang Family but apparently not)

yay - i loved her in K2H! but i like song ji hyo also, maybe everyone is confusing her with her "blank ji" persona from running man... she was super funny in Jackal is Coming.
cant' wait to see byun yo han deal with all of these women...

Casting Lee Yoon-ji re-sparks my interest in this drama. Like others have said Song Ji-hyo (despite my hopes and popular sentiment) ends up bland or hammy so I was a tad disappointed because this premise sounds funny. You know how once in a blue moon the second lead gets the girl? If there was ever a second leading lady who deserved that laurel, it would be her (and then her own prime time lead, like yesterday).

What a really pretty female cast. The confirmed female cast are all very pretty and I mean the natural pretty not the plastic looking pretty. How about the other supporting male cast. Does Song Ji hyo have a second male lead?
