Ryu Hyun-kyung up to join girlfriend trio in No Sex and the City
We’ve got another potential member of the trio of girlfriends at the center of MBC’s upcoming No Sex and the City: Ryu Hyun-kyung (The Lover, Empress Ki) is considering an offer to join Han Ye-seul (Madam Antoine) in the rom-com that follows three women in their mid-thirties as they navigate their love lives, friendships, and their familial ties.
If she accepts, Ryu Hyun-kyung will play Han Ah-reum, a flight attendant who is constantly on a diet. She broke weight records as a newborn and suffered from childhood obesity, but under her mother’s strict supervision, she shed a ton of weight and became a flight attendant (in Korea, airlines are known for only hiring attractive cabin crew). Aw, I can see myself sympathizing with her character a lot.
I’m not very familiar with Ryu Hyun-kyung’s work as an actress, but she does have a pretty extensive list of credits in film and television since she debuted at twelve years old in the mid-’90s. I’m much more excited, though, that the writer of No Sex and the City is Lee Sun-hye, who worked with writer Lee Woo-jung on the Answer Me series. If she can replicate the heart-warming friendships we got in the Answer Me installments in this new drama, I’ll definitely be tuning in.
Directing is PD Lee Dong-yoon, whose credits include Queen’s Classroom and Fated To Love You. So far, Han Ye-seul is the only confirmed cast member, and previously announced Kim Ji-suk (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) is still considering his offer to become the male lead.
No Sex and the City will premiere in September, taking over MBC’s Monday-Tuesday slot after currently airing Lookout and upcoming sageuk The King Loves end their runs.
