Lee Soo-kyung signs on for My Little Baby opposite Oh Ji-ho

It’s taken a few rounds of casting announcements to get leads secured for MBC’s new drama My Little Baby, with potential leading man Kang Ji-hwan doing Monster instead and Park Ha-sun turning down the project in the end. Oh Ji-ho (Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheo-yong) has signed on to headline as the cop who suddenly has to take care of a baby, and now Lee Soo-kyung (A Daughter Just Like You, Let’s Eat) has been confirmed as his leading lady. I love her. Why doesn’t she get bigger roles in bigger dramas?

The series sounds like an adorable comedy in the making: Oh Ji-ho stars as an ace detective in the Gangnam police department, who’s spent half his life surrounded by only men. He’s rough and macho and deals with violent crimes, drug dealers, and mobsters on a daily basis, and is known for taking on the particularly difficult cases. One day his niece is suddenly left in his care, and he’ll go from fighting a war on crime to battling it out with Baby.

Lee Soo-kyung will play Oh Ji-ho’s first love, a single mom with a 5-year-old son. She’ll have two very different sides to her, because she’s a mom who can display enormous strength when chasing after her son, but in other situations she appears to be elegant and innocent. Lee Soo-kyung always makes for a really relatable, down-to-earth heroine, especially in rom-coms where she gets to be funny.

Supporting cast members Kim Min-jae (Twenty Again) and 4Minute’s Nam Ji-hyun (A Thousand Kisses) have also signed on. He’ll play Oh Ji-ho’s roommate, a former co-worker who now runs a coffee shop. He’s a bright, happy character who makes others around him happy, and will probably play a big part in the baby-raising if he lives in the house. And Nam Ji-hyun plays a baby yoga instructor who has no filter between brain and mouth, and says whatever comes to mind.

My Little Baby is up for a potential late-night Thursday or Friday (or both) timeslot on MBC, and will premiere sometime in March.

Lol i just re-read the description of the story again. The baby cannot be Kim Min Jae's.. because the baby is Oh ji ho niece... then the baby is kim min jae's cousin then..
LOL. I already have my own storyline for this drama...

I'd love to watch Nam Ji-hyun in this but the rest will put me to sleep.

It's the idol nam ji-hyun, not the great formerly-child actress nam ji hyun, haha. The one you have in mind is focusing on school so she's not likely to do longer drama series right now, only shorter projects like movies and drama specials.

You are right, I was thinking about child actress Nam Ji-hyun. I don't follow K pop so I have no idea who this Nam person is.

Ιf THAT man could put me to "sleep", I would gladly do so (sorry, long-time bf but you know my soft spot about really, really handsome men who don't look like boys).

Sounds a lot more healthy than going out with a high school teenage ghost.

Hah. Oh Ji ho and the high school ghost have that brother-sister bond. They are sure close to each other but I don't see romantic vibe in them.

Laws of the Great Republic of Korea from 2008 was an amazing drama and so underrated too. Lee Sung Kyung was so beautiful in that drama.

Meh, Lee Soo Kyung. She needs to brush up on her acting and manage her facial expressions better. The way her eyebrows move every time she's saying more emotional lines is very distracting. Kind of reminds me of Emma Watson

This looks good! I've been addicted to the recent rom coms ( Madam Antoine and One More Happy Ending) so I'll be happy to have yet another one to watch. I loved Lee Soo Kyung in Soulmate and Let's Eat so I'm looking forward to this!

I love her in Let's Eat!! So much that I refused to watch the second season even if Doojoon is my bae!! Plus Barassi!!! T.T

Any way, this seems like a light hearted rom com so I'm glad she's doing it.

I didn't watch the second season either. I tried the first episode and missed Lee Soo Kyung's acting/eating. She should do Let's Eat Season 3 :)

While I ended up liking LSK in "Let's Eat", liked Seo Hyun-jin in LE2 better (don't know what people were complaining about how mean SHJ's character was to Yoon Doo-joon's, when LSK's character was just as mean, if not even more so; and at least SHJ's character had an actual reason).

But actually ended up liking the rest of the supporting cast/characters in the 1st LE better than the 2nd.
