Kim Yoo-bin and Noh Min-woo join God’s Gift–14 Days
Well who wouldn’t time-travel to rescue that adorable little girl? Lee Bo-young finally has a daughter to save in SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama God’s Gift–14 Days. Nine-year-old Kim Yoo-bin has signed on to play the daughter in distress at the center of the drama, which is already old hat for the child actress (Lee Dong-wook went on the run to save her in Mandate of Heaven just last year). The drama is also courting Noh Min-woo (Full House Take 2), though he isn’t a lock yet. He’s up for the role that idol actor Lee Ki-kwang (Twenty Years Old) had to drop because of scheduling conflicts.
The time-slip drama stars Lee Bo-young as a mother who gets the chance to go back in time after her daughter’s death, and has to race to save her in the two weeks that she’s given. Jo Seung-woo (Horse Healer) plays the private investigator who helps her, and Kim Tae-woo (That Winter, The Wind Blows) is her husband and Kim Yoo-bin’s father. The daughter is a bit of an outsider at school, described as quirky and cute. She doesn’t get good grades, but is warm and kind despite the fact that the other kids leave her out and call her the weird kid. She’ll have one friend in Baro (Answer Me 1994), a developmentally challenged boy in her class.
Noh Min-woo is considering a role as Kim Yoo-bin’s favorite idol, a leader of a rock band. The character’s name is Snake, and he came to music after a long period of depression following his hyung’s suicide. He chose to fulfill his brother’s lifelong dream in his place and eventually succeeded as a musician. I wonder what a young girl’s favorite idol band has anything to do with her kidnapping and murder, but for now everybody but Mom is a suspect.
God’s Gift–14 Days follows Warm Words, but there are mixed reports about its premiere date, which isn’t a huge surprise because it doesn’t seem far enough along to premiere next week. The reports range from “sometime in February” to “sometime in March,” so I guess we’re flying by the seat of our pants. What’s new, dramaland?
