First look at UEE in Birdie Buddy
The first still to be released from golf drama Birdie Buddy is of its lead actress UEE, the pop star of girl group After School who has recently turned to acting. Her role as a bratty pop star in last year’s You’re Beautiful was a character we loved to hate, but whom she played pretty well.
In this, her first leading role, UEE will be portraying a completely different type of character; her Mi-soo grew up in rural Gangwon-do and works her way up from golfing rookie. In the above still, she rides a bike with her golf bag slung across her back, on her way to the club to practice.
Birdie Buddy is an adaptation of a manhwa and is currently in full production swing. It is the product of a partnership between Group Eight and Hunus Entertainment and marks the second time these two entities are teaming, having previously done Tamra the Island. (Hunus also produced The Sons of Sol Pharmacy while Group Eight was the company behind another manhwa adaptation, Boys Before Flowers.)
Other cast members include Lee Da-hee (Secret of Keu Keu Island), Lee Yong-woo (Style), Yoon Yoo-sun (Queen Seon-deok), Oh Hyun-kyung (High Kick Through the Roof), and Yang Hee-kyung (Creating Destiny). Birdie Buddy is aiming for a summer broadcast.
