Oh Ji-ho, Park Ha-sun up to headline My Little Baby

With Kang Ji-hwan recently signing on to MBC melodrama Monster, the other MBC drama he had been considering, My Little Baby, has had to look elsewhere for its hero. Now it has confirmed securing Oh Ji-ho (Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo-yong, Maids) for the lead, while Park Ha-sun (Temptation) is currently being mentioned as a potential co-star.

The story of My Little Baby kicks off when a tough ace cop in the violent crimes special investigation unit is suddenly saddled with a baby—and faces a new kind of “war” this time, not with hardened criminals but with a puny child. It’s like Three Men and a Baby, but without the other two guys around to share the burden. Muahaha.

The role Park Ha-sun is described simply as a single mother. I hope this means she’ll get to kick the tough cop’s butt, at least in the baby-raising department, since I’m pretty sure he’s going to suck at that. I’ll enjoy that, for sure. Oh Ji-ho has done more dramatic projects in recent years but I do think he can do comedy in the right circumstances, and it’ll be a nice change to see him smiling in a role for once.

Interestingly, My Little Baby is looking at an unusual timeslot—rather than filling one of the regular prime-time slots, MBC is looking to make this a late-night drama airing on Thursday and/or Friday nights, and is still considering whether to air one episode a week, or two. Well, I suppose if tvN can create a timeslot out of nothing and turn it into the biggest success of the year (multiple times over), the broadcasters will be wanting to try some experimenting of their own. The timeslot isn’t fixed yet, but MBC is looking at a March premiere.

Ugh, I really like Park Ha Sun so I hope she turns it down. Not a fan of Oh Ji Ho's "acting".

In kdramas we've been subjected to "acting" of "cuties", "hotties", "handsome" who are neither hot nor handsome. I have absolutely no problem watching the objectively handsome.

Oh Ji-ho is basically enough reason for me to dip. Guy can't pull off any expression other than blank-staring-into-space look. Even more so, Park Ha-sun's last drama was a disaster for her and in general. She really isn't that great either so I'm obviously out.

Sounds cute. I think Oh Ji-ho should only do projects like this - his dramatic acting is pretty bad and ngl I like him smiley too. Park Ha Sun is awesome, I was wondering what she was up to lately.

I have no problem with this, but then I tend to watch based on story rather than who us going to be in it. Though U do like both actors.

Omg yesssss! I love Park Ha Sun! I've missed her in dramaland! Hope she confirms. I haven't seen Oh Ji Ho in anything, so I can't really judge him. Hopefully it's a good drama. Looking forward to it.

a thurs/fri, fri/sat timeslot always made more sense to me than mon/tues, wed/thurs, etc.

it's not like i ever watch anything directly live, especially korean shows, but weekdays are so busy that it's always been a challenge for me to catch something while it's actually airing... but that's just the way my schedule works. busy on weekdays, home on weekends.

Nice to see Oh Ji Ho taking on a light-hearted project, he was decent in Fantasy Couple.

It remembers me the best scared face I have ever seen in a movie: that of Schwarzenegger in Kindergarde Cop ;) .

Oh Ji Ho should be an almost shoe in for this role, he just welcomed his first child the end of last month. He has some 'new' hands on experience, and maybe he will come away with some useful knowledge from filming???? ;-)

Aww... I was really hoping to see Kang Ji-Hwan in another rom-com... I think the last rom-com show he did was Lie To Me (which I actually liked and most didn't lol).

Oh Ji-Ho was an actor I just discovered when I was watching Midnight Diner... he only had a cameo in it so I couldn't really determine his skill, but he was pretty good in his short appearance. If he can the role on his own and the most recent comedy he has done then yay.

I may just watch it just for the premise itself lol.

Park Ha Sun! Finally! Have really missed her, with her being under the radar for almost a year. Am not familiar with Oh Ji Ho's work but if she is onboard, I'm definitely watching.
