Jung Sang-hoon marries Kim Hee-sun for Woman of Dignity

Funny actor Jung Sang-hoon (Jealousy Incarnate, Lucky Romance) has been confirmed to join the growing cast of Woman of Dignity, which already boasts the likes of Kim Hee-sun (Angry Mom), Kim Sun-ah (Masked Prosecutor), and Lee Ki-woo (Memory), in the story about women turning their lives around. Actresses Lee Hee-jin (Trick) and Lee Tae-im (Twinkle Twinkle My Heart) are also set to appear in supporting roles.

Woman of Dignity is a comedy about a homemaker named Woo Ah-jin, played by Kim Hee-sun, who goes from a life of luxury to rock bottom when her husband up and cheats on her, and her chaebol father-in-law loses his fortune. Kim Sun-ah will take on the role of a mysterious and ambitious worker at a nursing home named Park Bok-ja, who strives to reach the upper echelons of high society despite her humble countryside beginnings.

Jung Sang-hoon will play the cheating husband to Kim Hee-sun’s character, the source of major conflict in the household. It was the role that Shim Hyung-tak (Five Kids) had taken on in previous casting rounds (and he must not have been confirmed, if it went to Jung Sang-hoon), so it seems like they’re going for a comedic character, based on the two actors. Jung Sang-hoon is great at playing characters who simultaneously make us laugh and want to smash his face into a desk (see: Jealousy Incarnate), so he should be a perfect fit.

Lee Tae-im is the art teacher the husband has an affair with, named Yoon Sung-hee. She’s an obscure artist that no one knew until Woo Ah-jin came along and became her first customer. The two strike up a close friendship, but Yoon Sung-hee longs for her friend’s beauty and class. And when Woo Ah-jin decides to sign her daughter up for art classes, so begins her husband’s affair with the art teacher. Lee Hee-jin has been cast as the typical Gangnam housewife who also happens to be a very influential blogger named Kim Hyo-ju.

It’s promising to see so many talented women cast in this drama. I just hope they pass the Bechdel test and are as complex as they are beautiful because Kim Hee-sun and Kim Sun-ah in one drama would be too good to waste!

Directed by PD Kim Yoon-chul of My Name Is Kim Sam Soon fame and written by Baek Mi-kyung who wrote Beloved Eun-dong, Woman of Dignity will be 100 percent pre-produced and is expected to premiere sometime during the first half of 2017. Production will begin next month, and no broadcaster is attached at this time.

I only watched Eun Dong the Begining, because I realized I wouldn't be able to make it through the full drama. That cute short prequel had Jinyoung from Got7 and was adorable and awesome.

It's really interesting they're going with Jung Sang-hoon over Shim Hyung-tak. They're both very good at comedy though Hyung-tak is maybe more on a leading man trajectory; it'll be interesting to see what project he goes after next after being the second lead in both Let's Eat 1 and Divorce Lawyer in Love, but then having a pretty decent storyline in Five Kids. On the other hand this is a major step up for Sang-hoon and after having him in smaller roles in some comedies I'll be looking forward to seeing what he can do in this sort of role. I suppose technically he might be the male lead? But the show is focused on the ladies so it's probably still more of a large supporting role.

I thought the change wasn't so much a choice as Shim Hyung Tak turning it down. At least that's how I read it.

Well it could be either, it's just interesting how pick #2 was so similar to pick #1 but with a definite step closer to the comedy side.

I just cant see that funny guy cheating on his wife. Since i have seen him playing all funny, yet caring type of roles, i just cant picture him doing that.

Why does this hodgepodge of plots feel like a long weekend drama? Also, that art teacher adulteress concept reminds me of The Village.

I know Kim Hee Sun, recently starred in many dramas and appeared numerous awards events. She is just perfect for this drama especially the second role as lawyer and not a housewife as stated.
