Uhm Tae-woong confirms JTBC romance drama

Cable network JTBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Mom Needs a Man has a new title and a leading man. The new project from PD Kim Yoon-chul (of Can We Get Married and My Name Is Kim Sam-soon) will now be called the more generic Could We Love. I’m a little bummed because Mom Needs a Man is the more evocative title, but perhaps the PD really wants a series of Coulda Would Shoulda dramas to be his thing.

The drama will star a trio of women all facing forty, each with a different romantic situation a la I Need Romance. Jin Jae-young (My Sweet Seoul) plays a “gold miss” character, who’s happy as the perennial single girl. Choi Jung-yoon (Ojakkyo Brothers) is the housewife and mother (to Jin Ji-hee), while Eugene (Hundred Year Inheritance) is being courted to play a divorcee.

Uhm Tae-woong will star as a film director who lived abroad in the States and was already making waves with short films he made as a high-schooler. He eventually becomes a famous movie director who wins awards at Cannes. He’s described as a prickly perfectionist with a constant stoic expression that’s unreadable, though he’s said to be full of charisma on set. He has a painful past (of course) and has no memory of the mother who abandoned him as a child.

I think he’ll most likely have a loveline with Eugene (if she signs on), because his character ends up working with a new screenwriter who comes out of nowhere, and she’ll be struggling with the recent discovery that her ex-husband is marrying someone much younger than her.

Uhm Tae-woong has already had quite the busy season, having just come off of fusion sageuk Sword and Flower and showbiz movie Top Star. He recently quit variety show 1 Night 2 Days, clearing his slate for all dramas, all the time. Well that’s the hope anyway.

Could We Love follows Your Neighbor’s Wife and premieres December 23.

Eugene is one of those I just find "meh" in all categories: acting, looks, sex appeal. Uhm-force needs a lot more woman than she is.

'Chaws' is one of those movies that has no business being as much fun as it is. Same 'Jaws' plot as a hundred Sci-Fi channel flicks, but good characters, off-beat dialog, and actors who are obviously having a great time.

Don't like the new title. It sounds so blah now. Oh well, whatever. But Uhm Tae-woong has now made this a must-watch for me. Even if the rest of the show is boring or not my speed, I'll watch for him.

Thank Goodness they changed the title. Mom Needs A Man stands out but not in a good way, imo. That being said, this sounds right up my alley, although the screenwriter lead reminds me a lot of the first I Need Romance. Still I love dramas about female friends trying to make their way in the world so hopefully this will be entertaining and will spotlight the enduring bonds of female friendship.
