Oh Hae-young PD and Marriage Not Dating writer reunite for Sensitive Boss

 photo SB.jpg

Marriage Not Dating’s writer Joo Hwa-mi and its PD Song Hyun-wook are reuniting for a new drama to be aired next year, tentatively titled Sensitive Boss. When tvN rom-com Marriage Not Dating originally aired in 2014, it became the highest-rated cable drama of its time slot, recording up to 3% viewership despite not having much star power. In fact, it helped shine a spotlight on previously lesser-known but talented actors like Han Groo and Yeon Woo-jin.

Since then, PD Song Hyun-wook has taken on other tvN projects including the sleeper hit Oh Hae-young Again, which broke cable ratings records for a weekday drama. Before his streak of success at tvN, PD Song Hyun-wook worked on mainstream broadcast dramas such as Brain and Haeundae Lovers. It was rumored that he would be joining JTBC’s upcoming Man to Man starring Park Hae-jin, but it seems that he has decided to stick with tvN for Sensitive Boss after all.

For writer Joo Hwa-mi, Sensitive Boss will be her comeback project since Marriage Not Dating. Even though details have not been released yet, I’m expecting a bright refreshing love story from these two, especially since Song Hyun-wook’s strengths lie with rom-coms and Joo Hwa-mi’s notable previous works include comedic drama specials The Angel of Death Wears Purple High Heels and Waiting for Love.

tvN is hoping to broadcast Sensitive Boss in early 2017, probably as its first Monday-Tuesday drama of the year.

Wow, that's really sad and honestly reflects way worse on the stepsister than it does on Han Groo... Hopefully she'll be back in dramaland before too long...

Good lord, that's... vicious. And a hell of a lot of vitriol coming from the stepsister. Stepfamilies are tough to navigate, with a lot of moving pieces: you might refer to your stepbrother as your "brother" and while he doesn't mind either way, it really makes your stepdad feel good and it makes your stepmother insane with rage. I guess she could've checked with every member of the family, but it sounds like the stepfamily are not interested in interacting with her at all.

I don't get the part of Korean culture that seems to be viewing this as claiming credit for the stepsister's successes. I had no idea that mentioning your family members in a favorable light could come back to bite you.

Ugh, I wish I hadn't read this, honestly - it feels like the stepfamily are completely eaten up by anger, so much so that the stepsister thinks that having a total hissy fit in a publication is merited. "We didn't grow up together, I haven't seen Han Groo in almost two decades" would've been more than enough. This just seems needlessly horrible.

Aren't people going overboard here? How is this reflecting "way worse on the stepsister than it does on Han Groo"? From her step-sister's point of view, it seems like Han Groo (or her agency) used the fact that her step-siblings all went to prestigious universities to play up the notion that she's an ideal daughter when they are not a family. People should just accept that Han Groo has a complicated family situation which is none of our business instead of letting their bias affect their judgement when they have no say in the matter.

Jeez! the comments on those articles!

but According to some comments there, the step father was/is Han Groo's manager also. So i do wonder how much of the step-sibling achievement's mediaplay had to be his doing .. Plus when you are young and new, you don't really have any control over what your company puts out there. And later you are just stuck with it.

Plus the step -sister's later vitriol is just rubbish. She was bashing HG for something that happened when HG was 7 years old. What could the kid have even done ?

Is someone else baffled how actor's career get over in korea over "scandals" which would be discussed for like 5 minutes and forgotten in other countries ???

If you don't come from a complicated family its hard for people to understand tbh. Its easy for people here to blame the step sister coz Han groo is a fave. Best believe if my step sister (who i can't stand) became famous and started chatting about me in the media i would clap back viciously too. How are ppl so sure she didn't try to ask HG to stop talking about her privately at first anyway?

The step-sister could have asked her and her agency to remove the materials instead of attacking her publicly. She seems bitter. Han Groo seems happily married and she should come back to drama land soon. She is talented and her agency probably had more to do with her image because as a new face she'd hardly have a say in how much info media gets about her.

I'm not sure if you read the article above but her step-sister DID ask them to edit/remove the false articles and the agency admits they got the request. However, they claimed to not have the power to do it, so she set the record straight herself! I don't blame the step-sister at all for not wanting to live in the shadow of lies and have to explain to everyone you meet that the famous Han Gro is NOT your sister!

I read it and the step sister even said that she got an apology for the articles. We are not related by blood and not close at all should've been enough. Adding our father abandoned us, mother left acting, raised us alone and we are not trophies for her is pure misdirected hate. She has issues with her father, unresolved issues.
Children in divorce suffer at both ends. Their family dynamic feels complicated but her words seem tailored to cause harm. We will never know the whole truth and she may have caused professional damage, it's hard to not say it didn't come from a place of bitterness.

All this new crop of dramas airing in 2017, I know this year sucks IRL but there's still enough time for dramas. Chips, I sound old.

Marriage Not Dating was crazy good, the ost is still in my head. Good times.

Marriage Not Dating's soundtrack is an example of an OST that seriously helps to boost the appeal of its drama... I bought the OST 'by accident' from HMV in Hong Kong, and ever since it became my 4-year-old daughter's absolute favorite cd to dance and spin to. (She's now 5, which means she's been listening to it for over a year!) She always asks for the "pink cd," and while I've somewhat forgotten the details of the drama itself, the OST has kept it still very top-of-mind for me.

I'm not sure if it's to PD Song's credit that the music has been so great on both MND and Oh Hae Young Again, but I'm willing to bet that Sensitive Boss will have as addictive an OST as the other two..

She meant 2016 sucks in real life (lots of scary and heartbreaking things happening) so kdramas are kind of a happy place.

I adored Eric in OHY. I'm sure if i go check out the recaps i'll find i waxed eloquent about him

but when i rewatched some of the episodes, he doesn't feel all that ..... great. He seems just like an ok actor.

Believe me, Eric's acting was pure of awesomeness. If he acted awkward and stiff in OHY means the character was written like that. You would never imagined the stiff park Do Kyung was wild and danger human species in Que Sera Sera. I became a fan of him after that. I think he really detailed learn about his characters in dramas.

Maybe they could pair Eric with Han Groo...haha.

Like bibps99, I totally adored Eric in OHYA, but on rewatching (and I rewatched most of it almost immediately after I finished the drama--it was that good to me), I found him slightly less awesome... It was my first exposure to Eric, and based on what I've read here and there, I don't think I want to know more about him as an actor or part of a boy band, etc. I want to remember him as his OHYA character forever.

Well, if you wanna see how capable he is as an acot, then you should check out his other dramas and not stuck with oh hae young. Eric's eyes are so expressive. And his strength I think we could get his emotions even from small gestures he did. There is a sincere in there. I watched Discovery of Romance and his character is so well written and executed there. In OHYA even without words, he can compete with other actors. So i think he is sure one of the best actor.

@Ryan--For the past two nights, I've been marathoning DISCOVERY OF ROMANCE, and I really love it too.

Eric's eyes ARE super-expressive, and I definitely see greater acting range being exhibited in DOR, so I think to Eric's credit, he must've deliberately played his OH HAE YOUNG AGAIN character (Do-Kyung) to be more introspective, slow-to-move, emotionally-spare.. At any rate, what I'm really saying is that Eric inhabits his roles rather successfully, so that I am much less curious about his real person, than I am interested in retaining his drama personas.

This is great news! Only problem I have is how am I supposed to wait until 2017!?

My brother is a HUGE romantic. He prefers the romance kdramas over any of the others. But we kinda fell into kdramas together. I was watching Boys Over Flowers (my first kdrama) out of curiosity and he came over to visit and we ended up marathoning the whole series that weekend. From there we would watch kdramas together when we were able to.

As for my Mom, I had tried for a couple years to convince my mom to watch kdramas but she always told me 'I can't read the subtitles and watch at the same time'. But me and my brother were watching The Girl Who Sees Smells and my Mom just started watching it with us and got addicted. Now my mom is even more obsessed with kdramas then I am. She almost always has a kdrama running on her TV, for Mother's Day and her birthday I got her a subscription to Viki and Drama Fever. Her #1 obsession is Kim Soo-Hyun and her #2 is Seo In Gook.

Every other weekend I go to her house and me, her and my brother (when he isn't at college) will spend the weekend binge watching and eating take-out. It's really fun and has actually made me and my Mom closer!

Honestly you and your mother and brother are family goals. Mine have nothing in common. I think together you can enjoy more dramas, whereas alone you get bored faster.

Yessssss!! Despite what I wrote above (about having found Eric slightly less awesome on rewatching), OHYA still isn't over for me either.. I watched Signal, and LOVED it, and Misaeng, and LOVE LVED IT...and watched and loved so many other awesome dramas, but my love for OHYA is a different sort. I haven't been as IN LOVE with a drama in a long long time.

I just feel like I wanna rewatch it again and again...

Yup. OHYA and Marriage not Dating are some of my all-time favorites. Even if plenty of good dramas have come around in 2016, few have engaged my heart in the way OHYA did. It was far from a perfect show, but sometimes I wonder if that's why I love it so much.

DAMN. That's a winning combination if there ever was one. Marriage Not Dating was one of those few romantic comedies that was consistently good and ofc OHYA was a phenomenon. I hope the cast is great!! I would actually love to see Seo Hyun Jin and Yeon Woo Jin together. Or, of course, Kim Seul Gi as everyone suggests. Actually Yoon Do Joon would be great as well. Both him and Yeon Woo Jin have kind of the same vibe.
