Elegant actresses team up at Woman of Dignity’s first script read

Now that casting is complete, upcoming drama Woman of Dignity recently held its first script reading. It’s the drama about a privileged Cheongdam-dong woman, played by Kim Hee-sun (Angry Mom), who hits rock bottom when her husband betrays her and her chaebol father-in-law throws her out on her ear. Co-starring with Kim Hee-sun will be Kim Sun-ah (Masked Prosecutor), whose character is an unfazeable woman who climbs her way up the social totem pole despite her Choongcheongdo backwater origins.

Kim Hee-sun will play the cheerful, elegant, and charismatic Woo Ah-jin, while Kim Sun-ah is the cool, nonchalant Park Bok-ja. According to reports, Kim had the Choongcheongdo accent down pat at the script reading. Lee Ki-woo (Memory) plays a coma-patient-turned-lawyer, and Jung Sang-hoon (Jealousy Incarnate) plays Woo Ah-jin’s cheating husband. Jung reportedly showed great comedic chemistry with his onscreen father, played by Kim Yong-gun (Cinderella and the Four Knights), ad-libbing some of the funniest moments.

The scriptwriter for Woman of Dignity, Baek Mi-kyung, wrote last year’s tearjerker Beloved Eun-dong and will also be writing Park Bo-young’s Strong Woman Do Bong-soon. PD Kim Yoon-chul has directed some of my favorite old-school dramas like My Name Is Kim Sam-soon and Que Sera Sera, but he also helmed the poorly rated Madame Antoine.

By all accounts, the atmosphere at the script reading was friendly and earnest. The production company JSPictures’ CEO, Lee Jin-seok, gave a few words of encouragement to the crew: “I think this [Woman of Dignity] could become the hit drama of 2017. I hope it will be a healthy, happy, meaningful project.” To that, PD Kim Yoon-chul added that he was both nervous and eager, but asked that everyone perform comfortably, just as they had prepared. The biggest laughter and applause were drawn by the oldest veteran actor in the room, Kim Yong-gun, who promised to “open his wallet often” and buy lots of food.

It looks like Woman of Dignity could become a great female-centric drama. Would it be asking for too much to hope for something along the lines of a mature version of Age of Youth? I have my fingers crossed that they won’t disappoint by following the stereotypical formula with a Candy heroine and an evil second lead. The casting of Kim Hee-sun and Kim Sun-ah already have me half-sold on it.

Female-centric chic comedy drama Woman of Dignity will be broadcast next year.

Me too. I really like her.
She is in a fantasy chinese wuxia right now (along idol Victoria). At first I had a look on it only for her and thank to her I have found out that fantasy wuxia are really my jam.

It is an comedy? Description of Main female characters doesn't lead to that feeling.

By default every show is Female centric Show. Channel Name? Because that surely affects a project.

You think so? She looks to me tired and she keeps her "eating a little" diet, seems to me. People's face change so much during life naturaly, you don't need to have even the plastic surgery. My friends, who didn't know me when I was skinny, where amazed by my look in my twenties and didn't recognize me. I'm in my 30's right now and I need to go on diet and stop eating bread, but how you can stop eating bread when living in France!? Have to move to a different country again... ;-)

A mature Age of Youth sounds great. Hope this is going in that direction.

I am a sucker for any drama that portrays the betrayed clawing their way back up the ladder, so will give this a shot. I just hope it does not turn too Candy'ish like so many do after the first 3-4 episodes.

Not sure where this one's going, but of course I'll check it out for Kim Sun Ah. It's been too long since I've seen her.

Very nice drama. I love this type of drama about very sophisticated high society women lifes. See their fashionista and styles. Kim Hee Sun getting woman figures but still have the youthful looks. I don't think she is innocent and naïve, she same as Kim Sun Ah holding the cunning roles in this drama. I want to see what are they motives to get married into this wealthy family.
