Ra Mi-ran up to become fish store owner in Buam-dong Revenge Social Club
I didn’t realize just how much I want this to happen until I saw this news: tvN’s Buam-dong Revenge Social Club is courting Ra Mi-ran (Laurel Tree Tailors) to star as one of the three women who form an unlikely alliance to exact their individual revenges. Ra Mi-ran as one-third of a trio of badass ajummas? Yes, please.
If she accepts, Ra Mi-ran would take on the fish store owner character, who is also the oldest member of our Revenge Social Club. She’s a single mother of two children who was widowed 10 years ago, and is struggling to make ends meet while saddled with her husband’s hospital bills and various other debts. Yikes, that’s bleak, but it sounds like she isn’t one to take her fate lying down, and the widow is described as optimistic and naturally a happy-go-lucky type of person. It’ll be interesting to see what will makes someone with such a sunny outlook join a “club” bent on revenge.
I can already picture Ra Mi-ran in this role, so I’m praying that she confirms the show. She would be pitch perfect as the eldest “unni” ajumma; a little rough around the edges, but full of warmth and heart. I also think she could bring a great weight to this character without letting her trials and tribulations drag the show’s atmosphere down too much. Honestly, I really just want the ajumma trio in Answer Me 1988 to have their own show, and I feel like Revenge Social Club would be a great alternative.
Buam-dong Revenge Social Club is still in consideration to make tvN’s lineup, but reports are speculating that the webtoon adaptation could air as early as this year. Hope we hear confirmations and other potential cast members soon!
