Lee Bo-young confirms God’s Gift–14 Days

And the first time-traveler of 2014 will be… Lee Bo-young! You win one trip to the past via Dramaland’s Wormhole Express™ in exchange for life-altering consequences and possible rapid aging. Brain tumor optional. See Loopholes and Exclusions for details. New time slip drama God’s Gift–14 Days has secured its heroine, who will be returning to SBS after taking home the Daesang just last week. I know that’s not why you gave it to her, but nice job with the timing. It couldn’t have hurt.

The new drama from the PD of Dummy Mom and the writer of Iljimae is basically Two Weeks: The Mom Version, where instead of a father racing to save his child’s life, it’s Mom’s turn to be the hero. The twist is that she gets to go back in time to do it. Lee Bo-young stars as a mother whose young daughter gets kidnapped and eventually killed when it all goes wrong, and after suffering that heartbreaking loss, she gets the chance to go back two weeks to save her.

It’ll be the new Monday-Tuesday drama on SBS, and with casting just getting underway, the production is evoking I Hear Your Voice levels of last-minute panic. The hero is reportedly going to be cast within the week. It should be a good role for Lee Bo-young, who gets to flex her tear ducts while also rising to the occasion as a thriller heroine. With such strong character motivation and a tight timeline (one hopes, unless time travel throws a big wrench in the works), I’m hoping for heartbreak and chills in all the good ways.

God’s Gift–14 Days follows Warm Words and premieres in February.

All it needs now is a decent male lead. There got to be romance, right?

I became a fan of LBY after her stellar performance in IHYV! I'm definitely going to watch this, I'm expecting a lot of bad assness!

No, what this needs right now is a really, really good script As rushed as this thing, any this side of 'The Godfather Meets The Seven Samurai Vs Dr. Zhivago and Citizen Kane' is going to be a long shot.

yeah, the solid script was what really got IHYV up and working from single-digit ratings to the 20s. Unless this drama has the same, I'm a little scared.

I don't think they'd be aiming to cast a big name for the male lead. It seems heroine and mother-daughter centric so I don't think an A-lister would sign up to do this unless the script is really great...

This drama sounds heartfelt and moving. I don't expect it to be a ratings hit though, cz Empress Ki is gunning all cylinders since premiere. But who knows?

@Mandy
Yeah, story more focused on heroine so which "non-A list" actor do you would sign up for this drama? Many other actors either currently filming a drama and already got offered roles for new dramas, except for kim bum

Why couldn't they just court her husband for the hero role? Would love to see them pair up for a drama.

Love her but so sick of time slip dramas, especially ones with little or no explanation of the reason they time traveled.

I love lee bo young. She can do no wrong. But after what Nine did, I think it'll be hard to beat it's record as the best time travelling series in all dramaland.

"The new drama (...) is basically Two Weeks: The Mom Version"
Or "Two Weeks: Nine Travels. The Mom Version". And I'm actually fine with that if this one is as awesome as those two :D

And +1 to the suggestion written earlier by hias0701 about casting Ji Sung :)

Oohh the story sounds good. It does remind me of Two Weeks in a way. I really liked that drama too.

IHYV was the first drama I saw Lee Bo Young in. I like her. Excited to see her in this new thriller. ^^
