Kim Hyun-joo to marry Kim Myung-min for KBS’s Miracle That We Met
The leading cast has been confirmed for KBS’s new fantasy melodrama Miracle That We Met, starring Kim Myung-min (Six Flying Dragons) as a husband and father who miraculously (or mistakenly?) finds himself living two identities in the wake of a strange accident. Playing his wife will be Kim Hyun-joo (Fantastic), which is a pretty badass pairing, and Ra Mi-ran (Buam-dong Revenge Club) has signed on to play the other wife he’ll gain through this inexplicable setup.
This is just probably going to be one of those dramas that doesn’t make sense until we watch the first episode, but the theme is actually pretty straightforward even if the mechanics aren’t. It’s about a man living someone else’s life and learning from it how to be a better husband and father. Kim Myung-min plays an ambitious, successful bank manager who has an enviable picture-perfect family with amazing wife Kim Hyun-joo and their kids. But in reality he’s a very detached, typical Korean salaryman father who’s a stranger to his own family, and his wife is very lonely.
Ra Mi-ran, on the other hand, has a very loving and happy marriage. She and her husband came from nothing but worked hard their whole lives to make a living, and are finally beginning to see the fruits of their labor in their successful Chinese restaurant. She lives a bustling, cozy life with their kids and father-in-law, until one day tragedy hits and she loses her husband in an accident.
This must be the accident that somehow leads Kim Myung-min to experience life as Ra Mi-ran’s husband, which I already find hilarious and awesome. If anyone’s going to whip him into shape to become a better man, it’s her. The premise is wacky, but this drama comes from writer Baek Mi-kyung of the equally strange but totally disparate Strong Woman Do Bong-soon and Woman of Dignity, which probably says all you need to know. Directing is PD Lee Hyung-min of Strong Woman Do Bong-soon and Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki.
Miracle That We Met is tentatively scheduled to air on Mondays and Tuesdays in April, following Radio Romance.
