The women of On the Way to the Airport and a new teaser

A lengthier teaser and a few more stills featuring actresses Kim Haneul (A Gentleman’s Dignity), Jang Hee-jin (Mirror of the Witch), and Choi Yeo-jin (Riders: Catch Tomorrow) have been released for the upcoming KBS drama On the Way to the Airport. This project marks Kim Haneul’s return to dramaland after four years, in which she’ll be tackling the melodrama genre as the female lead in a delicate love story about adults entering their second adolescence.

Kim Haneul’s character is Choi Su-ah, a twelve-year veteran flight attendant, mother of a daughter, and wife to air pilot Park Jin-seok, played by Shin Sung-rok (King’s Face). She is a natural when it comes to dealing with male and female guests of all ages, but such ease at work belies her inability to properly express her own emotions.

Choi Yeo-jin plays Song Mi-jin, an experienced flight attendant like Choi Su-ah, with twelve years of work experience under her belt. She has a striking sense of responsibility and professionalism, and her cool confidence is apparent from the stills. Jang Hee-jin portrays Kim Hye-won, a chic and elegant art curator. She’s married to university architecture lecturer Seo Do-woo played by Lee Sang-yoon (Twenty Again).

The new teaser gives us a glimpse of Choi Su-ah’s assuredness as a flight attendant and her uncertainty as a mother, who sends her young daughter to an international school abroad. Her husband doesn’t think she can handle parenting, but she finds comfort in Seo Do-woo’s words; he sympathizes with her struggle of sending her daughter off and assures her that she made the right choice for her child, because his daughter also attends that school and likes it there.

Despite assuaging her guilt, it seems that he is experiencing emotional turmoil of his own as he breaks down sobbing after someone dies. However, the expectant glances as the two leads meet at the end of the teaser hint at a relationship in which both of them become each other’s solace.

Directed by Kim Cheol-kyu (My Beautiful Bride) and written by Lee Sook-yeon (One Fine Spring Day), KBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama On the Way to the Airport will premiere on September 21.

I too would hate to see both leads divorcing their spouses just to be together.
Twenty again did it very nicely. I hope it'll be dealt well or I'll give it a miss, no matter how much I like Lee Sang Yoon.

That's true, since *Spoiler?* the husband doesn't even love the main leading lady and cheats on her.

+10000 lol

No, but seriously I really don't want to watch LSY break up SSR's marriage. Any marriage would be bad enough, but not my Rok oppa.

I was wondering how three airport people tied with other careers. Their daughters! That makes sense and more reason I don't want this to end in divorce. Could you imagine the girls being the catalyst?

Male-female platonic relationships are possible, drama writers!

I hope even it will be a divorce, it will come naturally, not because if infidelity.

I'm looking forward to see how each character will value their family, love & relationship. I guess it won't be infidelity in direct sense.

Woman With the Suitcase on the Way to the Airport. They should make these two drama compete on the same time slot.

I just hope the title sounds more glamorous in Korean - "On the Way to the Airport" is in the same category of "really not that interesting" as "I Can't Remember If I Locked the Door" and "Great, I May Have Forgotten My Toothbrush" for me.

And "Oops I Forgot to Bring my Passport". Bright is side is that both dramas have independent women in the center. The fear is that they'll become just as generic as these titles.

“Oops I Forgot to Bring my Passport” actually has a lot more dramatic tension - almost as thrilling as "Oh No I Left the Stove On". :-) Clearly the better drama!

Yes, definitely - independent women are always a huge plus. And who knows, maybe the drama will make a special effort to be memorable and rise above its boring title...?

I have more Ahjumma Shows in watchlist than Young ones.

Platonic love is also Love. I think Emotional Love can be the main theme of the show.

I love these types of Characters. I call them "normal". Not ultra rich, not struggling. Just right.

Not unless there's a Chaebol in this drama i don't know about. Lol.

If she really goes down for the affair route, she can spend Monday to Wednesday with Lee Sang Woo and Thursday to Saturday up in the air with Shin Sung Rok.
Sunday is a holy day and rest is very much needed anyway.

Not surprised, cause that was a Malaysia taxi they were getting down from. Maybe Air Asia sponsored them.

I'm getting very Melo vibes from this trailer. Of course, I didn't understand it without subtitles, but somehow...I probably wouldn't have chosen those particular scenes for a trailer.

My key takeaways are: the leads work in the airline business, at least one lead is a tortured soul, and...Kim Haneul talks on her mobile like the rest of us. Meh.
