Han Go-eun joins Me Too, Flower!
Another actor has officially been added to the cast of MBC’s Me Too, Flower!, with Han Go-eun (A Man Called God) now confirmed. She joins Lee Jia and Kim Jae-won, who were cast earlier this week, and plays a sharp CEO, described as “an impeccable amazon businesswoman.” Yeah, I can totally see it.
Lee Jia plays a petty policewoman, with Kim Jae-won as her love interest with another girlfriend on the side. At first it sounded like he’d be a straight-up two-timer, but now his parking-attendant-by-day, lingerie-company-owner-by-night character Jae-hee is also called an “undercover boss.” I wonder how that plays in…
Han Go-eun’s character discovers Jae-hee’s talent and helps him get to his current position of success. I suspect she has an interest in Jae-hee that she doesn’t act on right away, because she starts to feel jealousy when she realizes he’s got an interest in that policewoman Bong-sun. As a result, she starts to manipulate Bong-sun’s stepsister, Dal. (Ah! Dal was described as Jae-hee’s nighttime girlfriend, so reading between the lines, I’m guessing it’s Madam CEO who makes that happen.) Ah, why is romance so complicated?
Some rumors have named Seo Hyo-rim for the part of Dal, and while those rumors appear rather vague, this drama has had a pattern of: rumors, deny-deny-deny, then confirmation of casting. So who knows, maybe she’ll end up signing on after all. As good as she was at being bitchy and manipulative (Scent of a Woman), Seo can also pull off wide-eyed innocence and liveliness just as well, so I’d be happy to have her cast.
Me Too, Flower!, which comes from the writer of My Name Is Kim Sam-soon and the PD of Queen of Housewives, will premiere in early November.
