Song Ji-hyo courted for upcoming JTBC romance drama Begin Again

Running Man actress Song Ji-hyo (Lovely Horribly) is currently considering her drama comeback with JTBC’s upcoming Begin Again. Her agency stated on October 15 that she had received an offer and was reviewing it positively.

The role that Song Ji-hyo is up for is No Ae-jung, a single mom with a strong survival instinct, who has been alone for 14 years. All of a sudden, three different men who appeal to her in different ways appear in her life. One is a bad but attractive man, another is a man who is younger but makes her heart flutter, and the last is a man who is scary but also sexy at the same time.

If Song Ji-hyo confirms, this will be her drama comeback after a one year hiatus following Lovely Horribly. She hasn’t really had the best of luck in her drama roles lately so here’s hoping this one will be a bigger hit than Lovely Horribly, which set record low ratings last year.

JTBC’s Begin Again is set to air sometime in the first half of 2020.

The plot seems exactly like When The Camilia Blooms...

I was about to say that, it's basically identical! 😂

I can imagine that with jtbc it'll have a different tone, though.

I think it is gonna have a different tone though 😉Reading on another place that her character is a film producer, so this also got a be melodramatic feel to it!

Besides, with jtbc, you know there's a chance it could be hot - and Camellia is many things, but hot is not one of them!

I was like did I click on old casting news about When the Camellia blooms by mistake lol.

It's not a bad premise for a romance though, and I expect it will have a different tone.

Can I recommend Go Joon for either the bad but attractive man or the scary but sexy man. Not that I want him to be typecast but he was all of those things in Misty.

I second this. He can be the attractive, younger, sexy man all together. Then we can be spared of angst and shipping war and just enjoy the drama

I agree that the description of the three men plus 'single mom' tracks with WHEN THE CAMELLIA BLOOMS. However, it sounds like the plot will be much different- as will her character.

Yes, Song Ji-Hyo! I've been a fan since Ex-Girlfriend's Club, This Week My Wife Will Have An Affair and I recently discovered she was in Goong too! Let's hope the script is better and does justice to her abilities!!!!

ME: "I have very high standards for dramas."
DRAMA: *has strong female character in love triangle with bad and dangerous men she must go against both in love and war*
ME: "Oh no, it's meeting all my standards!"

On a more serious side, I do look forward to the drama. It seems like the younger boy will be the love interest, but I am more interested in what sort of story she will have with the bad men, and if they will go against each other.

I personally want a yandere man she has to go against, not necessarily that the young guy has to protect her. That is fine and all, but so far that is what "When the Camilia Blooms" is about, an older, strong woman with a younger love interest who tries to protect her from the villain.

I would totally like something like the relationship between the lead and villain from Seven Days Queen; the villain crushes/lusts after her but is a horrible person, she tries to keep a respectful distance but also is very straight-forward when it hits the fan, and overall I was more interested in what the heroine and villain would do when they were together than anything else.

But mostly I look forward to what looks like a love square with some very intense characters.

Ok let's talk dream casting:
1. bad but attractive man - Jan Hyuk or Kim Jae Wook would be so great.
2. a man who is younger but makes her heart flutter - is it terrible that I want Kwak Dong-Yeon here?
3. a man who is scary but also sexy at the same time - So Ji Sub please!!!!

This plot reminds me of Dalja’s Spring mixed with Oh My Lady.

(And those references remind me how old I am in dramaland lol)

Song Ji-hyo has amazing talent. She gave a stunningly accurate portrayal of a wife who has an affair in MY WIFE IS HAVING AN AFFAIR THIS WEEK. Neither before nor since have I seen such a true rendering of the reality of a cheating spouse: Most of the time the character of the adulterous spouse is based more upon fantasy.

LOVELY HORRIBLY was simply not well written, it was little wonder that it did not do well.

I hope that she takes on this role, it sounds like this show has promise.

If you want to give her a little more credit you should've swapped out reference to the awful 'Lovely Horribly' with the much superior 'My Wife Is Having An Affair This Week' or even 'Emergency Couple'.
