MBC welcomes back Goodbye Mr. Black

Why hello again, Goodbye Mr. Black! I’m glad to hear that the project isn’t dead after all, after SBS had dropped it from their schedule in favor of another drama, Remember. It was a surprise move, particularly since Goodbye Mr. Black had already lined up a solid cast, led by Lee Jin-wook (The Time I’ve Loved You), Moon Chae-won (Good Doctor), and Kim Kang-woo (Golden Cross).

Now MBC has picked it up, and while it isn’t common for a show to be picked up by one broadcaster, dropped, then picked up at another, it has happened before and I’m all for a show getting a second shot at life. Granted, I have no idea whether this drama will be good, but there was enough about the revenge-romance-melodrama premise to intrigue me, so I’d been sad when it got shelved.

Goodbye Mr. Black is based on a manhwa featuring a hero who’s betrayed by his best friend and lover, who then assumes a new identity to return and seek revenge. Lee Jin-wook will play that hero, and Moon Chae-won is the plucky young woman who pretends to be married to him to aid him in his plan. Their relationship eventually ends up healing him, but I hope not before he gets a taste of revenge — I don’t want him to lose his soul over it, but I always hanker for just a little payback to satisfy my bloodlust. Just a pound of flesh will do.

MBC will air Goodbye Mr. Black as a Wednesday-Thursday drama in early 2016.

Lol! Same rant from same poster, though I'm not really sure about your standards for you to say that he's not a good actor. You need to prepare yourself as you're about to see him romancing Chaewon for like a good 16-20eps. Goodluck! :D

I've seen him in many projects and my opinion still remains that his acting is bland and very limited..Someone like jung kyung ho would be a much better fit in my opinion..at least it's not LMH though..

Well I'm not telling you to stop posting, coz obviously even though I want you to do that, I just don't have the power to make it happen, lol! I'm just saying that I kept seeing the same comment from the same poster over and over again, as if that will change everything unless you're the one who decides who will be the lead or not. To keep it simple, I'm actually baffled by your persistency..?
On another note, i like Jung Kyung Ho too, better than LJW, but I must say LJW>LMH..***but well ofc not in terms of popularity***

And probably SBS's pre-produced "Saimdang, the Herstory" (Lee Young Ae's comeback sageuk).

That would be quite the rating battle.

I kinda hate when 'ratings battle' happens because so often, good dramas end up being the loser when they'd have done fine if they were released at a different time.

Okay so I really wanted to see goodbye mr black kick SBS' ass (in ratings) but this seems like a really tight battle now. i mean, descendents already has SO MUCH hype cuz of the bae song joong ki & saimdang as well (cuz of lee young ae) so actually looking at this lineup, it almost looks like mr. black will come last in ratings.

i envision it like this:

desendents
saimdang
mr. black

Funny because we did say that MBC could use a good drama for the wed/thurs slot.

They only need a new director then they are set. I hope it'll be good with high ratings because that would be the best revenge lol.

I wish it would be Nice Guy director... but that's probably too close to MCW's previous melodrama, right!? But I always thought he was able to control the acting pretty well and owned every scene.

MBC is doing really well out of She Was Pretty right now, Hwang Jung-eum is pretty much a ratings goddess of kdramas today - which is pretty impressive considering that her last few have started with virtually no hype, absurd-sounding premises and basically looking like recipes for fail. But she pulls it back somehow, I'm impressed.

I'd say it is, the acting is on point (especially Hwang Jung-eum and Choi Shi-won), but the characters get really frustrating, as they would probably be in any mistaken-identity drama.

Some episodes are just an exercise in restraint from throwing rocks at the screen, I'd say it only started to get bearable from around ep 5 onwards. And there's still a possibility it could regress.

It's better than I expected. But it's not brilliant. Definitely worth a try. :)

Acting is decent but the character development - especially for 2nd female character - is a bit too cliché.

True, i was quite reluctant to watch at first. I just love to see HJE in melo, but i don't like her in rom-com. But there are Park Seo Joon and Choi Si Won as well. Then I just watch to see if this is bearable to watch.

But it turn out to be better then expected. At least it can relieve my stress a bit because there are many funny scenes that made me laugh. :)

I've seen it on WAY too many actors over 2014-15, it is high time dramaland stopped blindly following fashion and makeup trends without any eye to whether they actually suit the actor or not.

I'm so thankful that it doesn't seem to be popping up in the latest crop of dramas. Now if someone could phase out the extreme gradient lip on women.....

It's actually a pairing that has me intrigued, because they can both be really intense onscreen. I would love to see how that translates in terms of their chemistry.

The way Moon Chae won handled her role in Good Doctor, had me sold - possibly for good. She made it seem so effortless. So I definitely have high hopes for this pairing too. LJW just has that charisma. I only hope he can pull off a dark, edgy role as this one!!

Required fields are marked *

I haven't actually seen Good Doctor but I have seen almost all her other work (fangirl lol) and she has an intriguing aura of strength about her in almost all her roles.

Nice Guy made her more brittle, which is what worked for her character, but I think she's great as long as she has a leading man who she can bounce off.

The last db podcast mentioned a dream pairing of her and Park Hae-jin and I was ready to make sacrifices to the drama gods to make it happen. They'd be SO great together.

I just want to say it upfront, since this drama is confirmed again, I hope if there are any haters of the actor or actress and I believe there are, please don't come to every post of the drama and say the same hateful things, go post on dramas that u like instead.

Now to me its so wonderful that Mbc confirmed it! It has a script, cast and production already underway so how could sbs just shelved it unceremoniously.

The revenge drama has started out with some interesting reversals before production! Maybe it will strengthen the team work, all the more for the better. Really look forward to it!

Nobody is perfect, one mans meat is another mans poison. My philosophy is.... If you have nothing nice to say... Let's be quiet about it.

We cannot please everybody, so there will always be ppl who may or may not like a particular actor or actress. So let's all focus on the positive. Why make a negative remark and make others unhappy. If you like them, enjoy the drama, if not you can always opt not to watch it. That way, everyone will be happy and be at peace. ❤️❤️❤️???

Probably won't be in the same time slot as Remember. But like many others have stated, it would be sweet retribution indeed if GMB is a ratings success. I would love to see SBS eat dirt for what they did to LJW, twice, and this solid production team.

At least, the cast and writer have something in common, a united goal that will probably spur better teamwork and quality. I really hope this drama goes up against all the big budget dramas from KBS and SBS in early 2016. Who said a low budget production can't make it a success?

I don't think GMB will have a low budget either especially if they going to shoot overseas but they probably going to have the lesser budget if it will head to head with both DOTS and Saimdang. And speaking of overseas shooting, do you think they still going to do it??

If GMB will air at the same time with both DOTS and Saimdang ooooooooooohhh that will be exciting because DOTS and Saimdang leading actress are both considered as top beautiful actresses in Korea hahahaha if Moon Chae Won beat them in ratings wow!!! She will be BIG!!! Exciting!
