Kim Haneul, Lee Sang-yoon confirm On the Way to the Airport

Casting is off to a great start for upcoming Wednesday-Thursday KBS romantic melodrama, On the Way to the Airport. Lovely actress Kim Haneul (Gentleman’s Dignity) and dimple-cheeked man-boy Lee Sang-yoon (Twenty Again) have both been confirmed as the leads. Having seen them in their latest drama projects, I can guarantee they both have acting chops. Plus, both have experience working in dramas about forbidden love.

On the Way to the Airport explores the age-old question: Can women and men just be friends? How does marriage affect making friendships with people of the opposite sex? Kim Haneul and Lee Sang-yoon play married individuals (married to other people) who meet by fate, and become more involved in each others’ lives.

Kim plays 12-year veteran airplane stewardess Choi Soo-ah who fell in love with her pilot in her earlier days and promptly got married. They now have an adorable daughter in fifth grade. Good-natured and sociable, Soo-ah is a born natural at her job as a stewardess. When not at work, she rates herself as an 85-point mom and wife. That is until she meets Seo Do-woo.

Lee has taken on the role of Seo Do-woo, who is a part-time university lecturer in architecture. He’s described as a cheerful upright attractive man with a very harmonious family life until one day a shocking event occurs that throws his world into chaos.

This new drama On the Way to the Airport is set to air after Uncontrollably Fond in September.

"He’s described as a cheerful upright attractive man with a very harmonious family life until one day a shocking event occurs that throws his world into chaos."

...on the way to the airport is supposed to be about honest relationships, not adultery, but this sounds suspicious, especially since it's a romance melo. er, maybe they get suspected of adultery but nothing ever happens?

An adultery angle would kill my interest. Hope you're right!

Hope you're right because that would be awesome. That way, it also gets to tackle the restrictions society imposes on married people.

Maybe both of their family falling apart so somehow they heal each other... on the way to the airport.
Well, flying makes you forget things I suppose.

no one's making her do melos lmao actors have a say in what they do, esp a veteran like kim ha neul. she probably likes them better. actors can showcase their acting skills more with melos.

So, I'm guessing these two leads won't be together in the end.

The writer's Lee Sook Yeon who penned Happiness, One Fine Spring Day, The Sword With No Name. If I'm not mistaken this is her first drama.

Lee Sang Yoon has basically made a name as being genius professor/lecturer. And who can blame him when he himself is probably a genius too! (Seoul Univ grads in Physics)

Kim Ha Neul tends to gravitate more in melos for her drama projects I think (AGD is an exception) and I wish to see her bring her comedic chops on tv dramaland too but it's been so long since her last drama that I'm excited to see her in just about anything.
Plot for this had my curiosity raised up, how are they gonna execute this?
Like Lee Sang Yoon, but after this hopefully his next project is Liar Game 2. :)

I'd want to watch except for the fact that I'll probably cry my eyes out if they don't end up together in the end, or not be able to watch because I'd hate for them to be committing adultery. This doesn't sound like there is going to be a happy ending at all.

The writers know that we all think like you, so I don't think they are going to risk an unhappy ending.
What about the spouses either die or leave them for somebody else so that the two lovebirds miraculously become free to love each other? Of course all this happening in the last 15 minutes of the last episode!
