Chae Rim prepares for new role in Good Job
Chae Rim is returning to television with a new short haircut and a new skill (pottery).
She’s taking the lead in MBC’s weekend drama Good Job (which literally translates to the somewhat redundant-in-English “Good job, good job”), starring opposite Eom Ki-joon in the role recently vacated by Myung Se-bin.
Her character works at a ceramic and pottery company, and also creates her own pieces. As we can see in these photos, Chae Rim has been busy studying pottery daily in preparation for her role, while her formerly long hair was chopped short to match her character’s single-mom status.
In the drama, Chae Rim’s character has a child with an ex played by Kim Seung-soo. After the split, she meets a handsome younger man (Eom Ki-joon), but their developing relationship is interrupted by the return of the ex. I hope, uh, the drama itself is more interesting than the description, because Eom Ki-joon is capable of acting the heck out of a character and I’d hate to see him relegated to the mere (read: boring) “good, younger handsome man” role.
This drama marks Chae Rim’s first project after her last drama, KBS’s action drama Rivals, ended a year ago. That series was something of a disappointment, although her previous turn in Dal Ja’s Spring with Lee Min-ki had been a cheerful comeback role for her, following a divorce and several years away from Korean television.
Good Job airs in March, after Moon Sori’s Golden Age of My Life wraps.
