Leading men lined up for God’s Gift—14 Days


Kim Tae-woo

Lee Bo-young’s time-traveling drama God’s Gift—14 Days is just about set for its leading men, with Jo Seung-woo (Horse Healer) confirming his role to play a private investigator and Kim Tae-woo (That Winter, the Wind Blows) likely signing on (he’s considering favorably) to play Lee Bo-young’s husband.

God’s Gift—14 Days is about a woman whose daughter is killed, after which the woman (Lee Bo-young) is given the chance to go back fourteen days in time and prevent the murder. Kim Tae-woo’s character is a passionate human rights lawyer and loving husband, but he hides a secret that’ll throw a twist in the proceedings. Hmm.

Despite the presence of a perfect (on the outside) father-husband figure, it’ll be Jo Seung-woo, who runs a private inquiry agency, who steps up to help the heroine in her race to save her daughter. Are both men good guys, or are we dealing with a hidden villain here? A mysterious husband doesn’t have to point to dastardly deeds, but it sure does ruffle suspicions. I know Kim Tae-woo better from playing kind, gentle characters but he did just come off a run playing a menacing gangster in That Winter, so I can easily see him playing both sides in the same character.

In any case, God’s Gift is shaping up quite nicely—a compelling cast, strong hook, and an intriguing thriller twist on the familiar time-travel premise. It will premiere in mid-February, replacing current Monday-Tuesday drama Warm Words.

The casting makes me that more excited for the drama. I really liked Kim Tae woo in That Winter, the Wind Blows I really came to like his character so I'm happy to see him cast.

I agree! Loved his character and his portrayal in That Winter. He was supposed to be the villain, but in the end he was the only character who redeemed himself in my eyes in that damned show. LOL.

He made us love him, dammit. And it wasn't until about then that I realized he was the Conductor in Operation Proposal - where I pretty much loved him right away. So this is good news!

My thoughts exactly - villain I hated but grew on my at the end. That was the first time (I think) I have see him and it will be a nice change to see him play a nice guy - well, I am assuming the husband is a nice guy. One never knows in Kdramaland!

Kim Tae-woo was the only one I liked In That Winter. I was bored to death by everything in this drama but whenever there'd be a scene with him I'd say "Yes! Finally something interesting!" I really love how he played the villain in there.

It's apparently due to wordpress throttling access if traffic goes beyond a certain level? Saw this discussed on some other thread somewhere here on db.

Korean spock! I grew to like his character in TWTWB for some odd reason.

"Kim Tae-woo’s character is a passionate human rights lawyer and loving husband, but he hides a secret that’ll throw a twist in the proceedings."

I'll admit to my mind going straight to him being in on the murder. I don't know. twists nowadays just aren't what they used to be. I bet he'll end up being a baddie to some degree. Poor Lee Bo Young, her character is really gonna have it bad -- dead daughter, evil husband.

I liked Kim Tae-woo's character as well. I was sad when he died--mostly because it wasn't a "glorious" end in an epic fight (but that's not surprising because Oh Soo wouldn't have made a formidable opponent as he turned into a sap...) but I'm excited to see him again. Hope the writing will give him something to work with the entire span of the drama.

Woot woot...so happy that Jo Seung-woo accepted! And an added bonus if Kim Tae-woo signs on too!

I agree with previous comments, he was great in That Winter, That Wind Blows...I loved his voice! ;P

Surprisingly, I was drawn to his character and agree that he seemed to be the only one that actually grew by drama's end. It was a shame he died then...but at least it made sense (than the bs ending).

I'm hoping the twist isn't that he was the reason why their daughter died...a bit predictable that way, but it would be nice to see him as a good guy.

I first saw Kim Tae Woo in TWTWB and I couldn't believe myself when I saw him in Naked Kitchen. Completely different character. He played loving husband in Naked Kitchen so I'm sure he can play it well in this drama.
