Seo Hyo-rim confirms Me Too, Flower!
This drama cracks me up; after a whole bunch of names were announced as probable cast members for Me Too, Flower!, each of those actors’ representatives came out hastily to say, No, the deal isn’t final yet, we’re not yet decided, there’s been no contract, wait no wait! And then, one by one, they all confirmed the casting anyway. Ha!
First to sign on was Lee Jia as temperamental policewoman Bong-sun, followed by Kim Jae-won playing her two-faced, “undercover boss” love interest Jae-hee. Han Go-eun joined the show shortly thereafter as a businesswoman CEO who takes an active role in helping Jae-hee cultivate his career, and now Seo Hyo-rim takes on the role of “cute material girl” Kim Dal, step-sister to our heroine. Dal is ambitious and vain, but in an endearing way, which makes me think she’s a lot more like her adorable Sungkyunkwan Scandal character than her snotty Scent of a Woman role. I hope I hope.
Dal comes to live with unni Bong-sun after running into some tough times. She shows interest in the young chaebol Jae-hee (Kim Jae-won), whom Bong-sun knows to be a mere parking attendant working at a store near her police station. Dal also strikes up an acquaintanceship with an older man, played by the always wonderful drama veteran Jo Min-ki.
Seo Hyo-rim said, “I really like the characters and script, which is why I joined this drama right after finishing my last one. Dal has an unpredictable charm, which I hope you’ll enjoy.”
Me Too, Flower! is still finalizing the rest of its cast; idol boys Nickhun and Lee Ki-kwang were both rumored to be looking at the drama, and both were part of the mass casting denials. Who wants to bet they both end up joining anyway? If we’re following the trend, they’ll be hopping onboard any day now.
The drama, which comes from the My Name Is Kim Sam-soon scriptwriter, will air on MBC in early November.
