Lee Yuri’s body swap in comedy drama Spring Must Be Coming
Still cuts of Lee Yuri (Hide and Seek) and Eom Ji-won (Falsify)have been released for their new drama Spring Must Be Coming. Directed by Lee Kim Sang-ho (Arang and the Magistrate) and written by Lee Hye-sun (Golden Pouch), this drama is a body-swapping comedy featuring the two actors.
Lee Yuri plays a selfish, ambitious woman who knows nothing but herself. She used to be a regular reporter, but climbed her way up to become the main news anchorwoman by using any means necessary to get the latest scoops. Conversely, Eom Ji-won’s character devotes herself fully to her family. She used to be an actress, but gave up her career when she married, and now she’s the wife of a congressman.
The day of Lee Yuri’s first live broadcast as main anchorwoman, the body swap occurs to her great dismay. Spring Must Be Coming will show how these two women learn to love themselves again. I’ve really enjoyed Lee Yuri’s performances in a lot of weekend makjangs, and I’ve seen enough of her to know that she’s talented enough to pull off a range of nuanced emotions, so I’m looking forward to her performance with Eom Ji-won, who I’ve always felt was underrated.
MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Spring Must Be Coming will start airing in January 2019.
