My Fair Lady undergoes title change, Oh Yoon-ah joins cast

KBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama formerly called My Fair Lady has a new, more specific title, Oh My Geum-bi, and actress Oh Yoon-ah (Angry Mom) is confirmed to play Jang Joo-young, the tough mother to daughter Geum-bi.

Oh My Geum-bi is the heartbreaking story of Mo Hwe-chul, a father grappling with his “childhood Alzheimer’s”-stricken eight-year-old daughter, Mo Geum-bi. The father is a hack swindler who loses his sense of smell as his young daughter loses her memory due to a rare and debilitating disease. Adorable child actress Heo Jung-eun (Park Bo-gum’s half-sister in Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, Park Shin-yang’s daughter in Neighborhood Lawer Jo Deul-ho) will play Geum-bi. This tragic tale centering around a father and his daughter was the winning entry in a KBS script competition.

Oh Yoon-ah’s character is described as a fiercely independent and strong woman who habitually ran away from home during her teenage years because of a strained relationship with her mother. She may not be loquacious, but her words are always piercing and to the point. However, far more terrifying than her few words are her actions; once she latches onto her prey, she’s not the type to let go until all her teeth come loose.

Although Oh already wrapped on SBS’s much-anticipated preproduced historical drama Saimdang, Light’s Diary, audiences will first see her in Oh My Geum-bi since Saimdang is slated for a late January 2017 premiere. And thankfully, the airdates of her two projects will not overlap due to a four-episode drama special that KBS has scheduled.

Oh My Geum-bi sounds like a major tearjerker, and cutie-pie Heo Jung-eun has triggered Niagara Falls-level tears in me before which means I’ll probably be drowning in a salty sea of tears with her role as Geum-bi. Time to stock up on Kleenex, folks.

KBS’s Oh My Geum-bi will air after currently airing On the Way to the Airport ends its run.

Swindler Dad is losing sense of smell.
Young daughter has Alzheimer's.
Mom is a straight talking ex-rebel teenager with mom issues who... won't let go of her prey?

It's like one of the characters doesn't fit the story. But I suppose we'll see as more info is revealed. :D

(Learned a new word today: loquacious! Thanks, chickachunga!)

Sounds intresting and heartbreaking and even more as the lead is a child,made me even more curious as it was on a contest,the last one who i totally loved was Angry Mom that also won...I'm gonna watch it even if i know i need to buy a store of tissues...On this story only Yoo Seung Ho is missing to make it a complete tragedy combo/heist Remember meets Seodal type...Curious,is the story in the present time or in the past,for a reason my first impression was that is the past for some reason

I want to watch this as the performances will probably be great, but I just can't. Too sad and teary. I have a really hard time watching kids suffer even if it is acting.

Maybe in the spring or summer when there is more sunlight and I won't have the winter blues.

Lol, I must be a masochist because I'm looking forward to this. Hope they cast someone good as the dad, I'm a sucker for father-daughter relationships (e.g. KRW+daughter in Punch or LSJ+"daughter" in Marriage Contract).
Lucky me I already come well prepared in the tissue department since OTWTTA is more heartbreaking than expected.

Is is possible for Kim Rae Won to do this? I need to get his image in Doctors out from my mind asap, so need to see him a new role.

Have you seen Punch? KRW is amazing in it and nothing like his character in Doctors there. You really wanna punch him at times lol but then he'll make you bawl your eyes out when with his daughter.

I am not a big fan of shows that start out with everyone near death or destruction, so will probably pass on this.

Definitely sounds like a tearjerker, but I've never seen anything where a little kid had Alzheimer's so I'm in, especially for the little cutie Heo Jung-eun.

i just finished watching kim woobin's drama and its heartbreaking when he begin lost track of his memory.
and i dont think i can handle little kid doing the same story. Heo jung-eun is too cute too innocent to be someone who's suffer too much ?
