Woman Who Still Wants To Marry to premiere mid-month

The cast has been filled out for MBC’s upcoming The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry, and the drama recently held its prayer ceremony as the drama team readies for its mid-January premiere.

The drama features three thirtysomething women and their love lives and careers, centering around Park Jin-hee, Eom Ji-won, and Wang Bit-na. Originally, I had thought Eom Ji-won was the lead role, but instead it will be Park Jin-hee, who takes over the character played by Myung Se-bin in the original 2004 drama The Woman Who Wants to Marry (which also starred Lee Tae-ran and Byun Jung-soo).

Meanwhile, the lead’s friends and love interests are all new characters. The three lead men will be played by Choi Chul-ho (Partner, Queen of Housewives), Lee Pil-mo (Sons of Sol Pharmacy), and Kim Bum (Dream).

Park Jin-hee’s character is a reporter who starts dating a man twelve years her junior (Kim Bum). In order to prepare for her role, she underwent training with real MBC reporters, whom she shadowed and studied.

Eom Ji-won plays an interpreter who, in the below-pictured scene, shouts up at a second-story window drunkenly, feeling hurt and wronged by the boyfriend who dumped her. (The catch? The man has already moved to a new place and the new tenant is hardly pleased at the inconvenience, dousing her with water.) To shoot the scene, Eom had to suffer through the water-dousing in freezing-cold weather with snow still on the ground, and the PD expressed his sorriness at putting his actress through such discomfort (apparently the writer had imaged it being summer when writing this particular moment).

The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry replaces MBC’s current drama Hero on Wednesdays and Thursdays later this month.

Totally looking forward to this drama. Hopefully Kim Bum can show us some more of the acting chops we know he has (as evidenced by East of Eden... but he did cry a lot in that)... Anyway, I do suspect he will be just as pretty as he has been in everything else.

The stills look awesome. Poor Eom Ji-won for being doused so many times in the cold weather. However, the out come looks pretty hysterical.

Yay, Choi Chul Ho is cast in this...wonder if he'll be paired up with Eom Ji Won or Wang Bit Na.

Kim Bum's got the noona-dongsaeng thing going on. Watch out, Park Jin Hee...langdon813 may just swoop in and steal him from you. :P

Wow Choi Chul Ho is in everything! This man does not stop to take a break does he? Since Park JIn Hee is paired up with Kim Bum, does that mean Kim Bum takes on the male lead role?

Definitely going to check this drama out - love feministic backdrops. I only hope Kim Bum doesn't disappoint. He has so much potential, as evidenced by his EOE performance, I hope this puts him back on the newbie podium.

Man Who Can't Get Marry and A Woman Who Still Wants To Get Marry? Maybe they should get together?

...

I hope this works out for Kim Bum. Dream did not do him any justice.

Looks kind of cute and funny. I'm just relieved that Wang Bit-na doesn't play the lead role b/c she's not a great, natural actress. She made me cringe when I watched Hwang Jini. But the thought of Kim bum in this drama, already caught my attention. I hope he rebounds from this drama :)

i'm soooooo looking forward to this drama. i love dramas about a group of late 20s, early 30s professional women. kim bum seems like an oddball of the group (i get that it's supposed to be a yunhanam relationship, but kim bum-young? really?), but since he's capable of acting i'll let it pass. the boy's trying to build a more mature image, so i'll let him be lol. but yay! i heart park jin hee and eom ji won so i'm excited to see them in one drama.
