Minah up for leading role in fallen angel rom-com
There’s a new drama in the works, tentatively titled Goodbye Angel, and Girl’s Day idol Minah (Beautiful Gong Shim) has already been tapped to be its leading lady. The premise sounds light, fun, and slightly wacky—it’s a romantic comedy about a fallen angel and a party planner who meet and eventually fall for each other.
Minah is up to play the fallen angel, who is banished from heaven for mishandling her responsibilities. She sounds like a naive character, who has nothing but love to give and gives it freely. Even though she gets taken advantage of by humans, she’ll fall in love with one of them. And of course, our hero is the cynical type at the opposite end of that spectrum, who doesn’t believe in love at all. This plot sounds almost identical to High School: Love On, which… isn’t the greatest comparison, but I do hope that the characters being adults rather than students helps differentiate the two shows.
I didn’t watch Beautiful Gong Shim consistently, but I did find Minah charming, so I’m hoping that if she confirms this show, she can inject some energy into what sounds like an otherwise guileless character. Hopefully, this fallen angel will have some quirky traits to her, like Kim Sae-ron’s character’s drama obsession in High School: Love On, because it looked like Minah could do quirky quite well in Beautiful Gong Shim, when not out-quirked by Namgoong Min, of course.
Goodbye Angel is in the middle of negotiations for a timeslot with one of the broadcasters, but it sounds like it’s aiming to premiere sometime later this fall or early winter. Hopefully we get some more information in the coming weeks, since I’ll never say no to a fantasy romance.
