Yeon Jung-hoon joins Jung Yumi’s weekender Bravo My Life
Aw, is the villainous streak over? I do so enjoy seeing Yeon Jung-hoon (Man to Man, Mask) as a suave dramaland bad guy, though a huge part of that is probably my wish to see him being a badass vampire prosecutor again someday. My hope will never die! In the meantime, we’ll be able to see him in the new SBS weekend drama Bravo My Life, which comes from the PD-writer team behind Wish Upon a Star. He’s been offered the second lead role in a love triangle opposite Jung Yumi (this one from Master–God of Noodle and Six Flying Dragons), and both actors are currently in final negotiations to sign on.
The drama is about television producers and actors, and revolves around three main characters: a haughty drama PD, an assistant director who’s still waiting to catch her big break, and an actor who still hasn’t debuted after seven years in the industry. Jung Yumi will play the assistant director, who is the last of her entry class of PDs to still be stuck in assistant-land and not get her own program. She’s engaged to her college sweetheart, but the sudden reappearance of her mother leads to the end of that relationship, for reasons unknown.
Yeon Jung-hoon has been cast to play the haughty drama PD. He’s described as an extreme workaholic who is uninterested in anything that isn’t about dramas (hm, what’s that like?). He doesn’t go to class reunions and has no friends, and doesn’t meet with anyone who isn’t involved in his work. Well he sounds like a peach. I hope he’s at least a geeeeenius or something.
Also joining the cast is veteran actress Do Ji-won, who is currently playing the queen dowager in Seven Day Queen. She’ll play a former starlet who married a chaebol and lived a fantasy life that everyone was envious of, but 25 years later she’ll end up at rock bottom and discover that she can’t even land minor roles as an actress anymore.
So with Yeon Jung-hoon playing the haughty boss, all we need is the actor who hasn’t been able to debut for seven years, and our love triangle will be complete for the backstage drama.
Bravo My Life follows Sister Is Alive on weekends beginning in October.
