Song Jae-rim to romance Lee Hana in KBS’s Unkind Women

Song Jae-rim (Surplus Princess, Age of Feeling) finally gets the girl? It looks like someone’s movin’ on up in dramaland. Though judging by the title, it looks like he won’t be getting a nice girl. Song Jae-rim has scored his first leading role in a drama in KBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday series Unkind Women, opposite Lee Hana (High School King of Savvy) who is currently in talks to headline. They’re both a little odd, so maybe it’ll be a surprising match?

Unkind Women is the new miniseries from PD Yoo Hyun-ki of My Daughter Seo-young and Brain, and writer Kim In-young of Equator Man and Women of the Sun. If she signs on (which is looking highly likely), Lee Hana will be reuniting with the writer for the third time, after starring in both Women of the Sun and Battle of Mary and Dae-gu. Moon Sori (Law of Attraction) and Kim Hye-ja (I Live in Cheongdam-dong) have already been cast, and one more spot needs to be filled in the family of four women.

The drama is about four women spanning three generations in one household, who share the same hot-blooded temperament. Kim Hye-ja is Grandma, a sharp-tongued cooking instructor, and Moon Sori plays one of two daughters, a successful anchorwoman who’s really hard on herself and the people around her. Lee Hana will play the granddaughter, a 29-year-old straight-laced bookworm who went to all the right schools and grad schools, who knows nothing but how to study well. She comes across a few students who need help getting into Seoul University, so she begins a tutoring group, through which she learns how to be a real teacher.

Song Jae-rim plays a fencing instructor who’s also a grad school classmate of Lee Hana’s. He’s not really interested in women and is prickly to most people, and he’s especially cold to women with lots of aegyo who try too hard to look good in front of him. Well that’s a strangely specific character description. Maybe it’s a roundabout way to explain how the jock will fall for the bookworm? Let’s just hope there’s some chemistry there.

Unkind Women follows current Wednesday-Thursday drama King’s Face in February. High School King of Savvy baton pass!

Please not Lee Ha Na! I want to see Song Jae Rim in a drama and I want him to be the lead but not with Lee Ha Na. She has such weird facial expressions; it took me ages to get used to her in High School King of Savvy. For SJR, I guess I can get used to her again, if I have to...

I totally agree with you. I could not finish High School King of Savvy because I could not get to like her and at some point it impacted on how I like the drama. But I blame it all on her because I watched all Seo In Guk dtama and movies since Yoon Yoon Jae time and I realized how dazzling Lee Soo Hyuk is on Valid Love.
Please Lee Hana, don't sign on.

I fell for Song Jae Rim in We Got Married and am luch lookin forward any new drama with him on it. If Lee Ha'a signs, I sincerely hope he doen't.

I love her quirkiness in HSKOS. At first yes, I found her acting too offbeat but after a while, I found her charming with all the weirdness.

At first I found her a bit weird but then her character was of someone who was socially awkward and I think she did a great job at it...finally, I liked her a lot!

She eventually did grow on me so by the end of HSK, i didn't mind her. But it took at least 3'4's of the series to get to that point. Funnily enough though, I do think she'll match with Song Jae Rim really well. So I'm thinking that I might be able to get over my dislike for her if she's with him. I think it was her chemistry with Seo In Guk that got me over the line with her in HSK anyway.

I agree. I didn't like her at first but later it was so funny to watch her. I started watching this drama because of her. I didn't like her pairing with Seo In Guk. But I liked when she was with Lee Soo Hyuk and I think she is pretty.. a woman doesn't need to look like a plastic doll to call pretty. . Lee Ha Na fighting..!!! :D

Uuuuuuuuuuuugh, really dude. That was one role you saw her in. Yeah I agree with you that she made weird facial expressions but that was what her character's personality, that doesn't mean she is like that in every single drama she's in. :P

I think he is very capable of this role, though it's the complete opposite of jaerim's personality. The casting does have a lot to do with We Got Marrieds rating boost after he joined with kim so eun, but i don't have high expectations in the chemistry between the two. because the only person he will have the most chemistry with is kim so eun lol ever (i am a bit biased about this couple).
anyway lee hana is a good actress in my opinion, i think she played her character well in king of high school, why is she always paired with the hotties though haha?

I wonder if i'll really be able to buy him in this role when he's such the opposite -- he seems so smitten with the ladies and he keeps asking his wife to show him some aegyo lol. Though we all know so-eun is not the aegyo-type.

Now that you say it, I'm a bit worried.

But then he fantastically ignored Soso in Age of Feeling while at the same time launching Mo-Soso ships. (Don't ask me how that happened).

If he can stand there doing martial arts-y moves and be all cool and manly, I think he can pull off the "I am above calls of the flesh. I am not a cheesy, skinship-obsessed man" vibe.

How long does WGM filming last? I thought it was 2-3 months max?

Required fields are marked *

How long they last depends on the couple. But they generally drag one meeting over a few episodes, so they actually don't meet up as much as it seems.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

Generally WGM couples meet every 2 weeks-1 month. Their one day spent together can be stretched to a total of 2-4 episodes. After all we only get 25 minutes of them each week huhu.

The longest running couple was over 1 year (around 55-60 episodes) -- Adam couple. The oldest couple this season so far is nam goong min x hong jin young, both of them are going into their 38th episode.

Considering song jae rim and kim so eun's popularity and revival of the WGM ratings, their gonna try to keep these two for as long as they can. I would say they have 9 months atleast;they just reached their 3 months.

Although that rests entirely on their schedules, because I have a feeling that they're both going to be super busy since making headlines. Most couples end their contracts for this reason. Rim has been offered several different CFs/endorsements recently so he's going to be super busy in the near future.

Just checked, you're right. They were part of season 2 as well as season 3 so I didn't add the episodes up from both seasons.
They would be the longest running couple, being another popular favorite.

Same here! I do think her character and the way she delivered her was so quirky and sharply distinct that it was a serious love or hate reaction for most people. I forever loved how people around her were aware her character was different but still accepted her.

Anyway despite that, I still think this is an odd pairing. I've never seen Lee Hana in anything else so who knows, maybe the pairing will work!

I hope Jae Rim can get to play a lovable quirky character one day. I was so surprised by his personality on WGM just because of the roles I've seen him in. He reminds me of Joo Sang Wook before he got to show his silly side on Cunning Single Lady. His IRL personality was surprising also because all his previous characters were so serious!

yeah before i knew anything about sjr i thought he was prob a boring serious guy? since his characters were always so bland (tho tbf they werent big roles) and i mainly knew him as a model, so...usually not the most exciting of guys XD
i def thought he was gorgeous though. but then i saw him on wgm and omg he's a total nutball? he def showed sides of that in Surplus Princess when he was given the chance to. so glad wgm happened for him. (and so eun, who is <33 imo) he's a real gem lol. he can be a great variety personality on top of being a good actor. (i think he needs to be able to stretch his legs more tho. this role sounds on the bland side but we shall see)

THANK YOU. its so rare to see girls get to be legit eccentric and weird. and the comments in this post show us why. actresses have to be pretty and elegant no matter what, how boring is that? (ofc then they can get hate for being bland -_-) but its so weird to me that the main complaint was how weird/bizarre her mannerisms and character was when...that was the entire POINT? if anything it sounds like she's a damn good actress to pull taht off instead of coming off as twee n cutesy ala what the first few eps of sek's nodame was like lol.

Congratulations Mary! haha.

I also like how it seems like the career spectrum is branching out in dramaland. A fencer is new. Maybe we'll see a little bit of Mo then? Hope his "cold and prickly" character is better written than in Surplus because he was a bit dull until he started being cute. I've only seen Lee Hana in HSKOS, and I liked that she wasn't just cute weird, so I think that speaks well of her as an actress to not have pretensions like that. Plus she's not playing the same character here so I'm game until proven otherwise.

Plotwise it might be good though I'm wary of generational stories because they're prone to makjang twists. Please no fauxcest or relation of murdered father/brother/mother/dog/etc.

Y'know, I actually think Rim can't do the "haughty chaebol" role. (Don't kill me, Mary. Oh wait, that's me.)

Anyway, yeah. I think he'd be stiff and boring if forced to play the standard rich chaebol. Oppar went through a not-so-rich early life, and one thing I noticed from watching local dramas and knowing the actors and actresses background, you can't fake those elegance/mannerisms/haughtiness/entitlement that "rich" people have.

You can probably learn to portray it given some time, and faster if you're talented observer and actor. But it's not something you get in a couple of takes right off the bat. That's why I kinda cracked up at his rich, genius chef portion at the start of Surplus Princess. It felt awkward to me. Then he started being cute and dorky and giddy about meeting Hani... and it was magic. ^____^ (and now we know from WGM that that's how he is. Hahaha no wonder it felt so natural and cute)

Re: this drama, it's giving me major You're The Best Soon Shin vibes. Don't you think so too? A family of women + relationship (not just romantic) issues.

I'm gonna assume the focus will be on them (women) until news says otherwise. :((((

***SPOILER IF YOU'VE NEVER SEEN NAIL SHOP PARIS***

Song Jae Rim has already gotten the girl - or am I the only one who watched the absolutely terrible Nail Shop Paris? It's a terrible drama with terrible acting, from everyone EXCEPT Song Jae Rim of course who totally carried the thing on his sexy smouldering shoulders. As bad as it was though, it is notable for being one of the few dramas where the 2nd lead actually gets the girl.

But still, so happy for him. I love him to death. But I don't understand why Lee Hana keeps getting these rolls with younger men. I hope they make her pretty this time, so it's more believable.

I'm concerned that Lee Hana's character here sounds pretty similar to her HSKOS character in the socially awkward department but if she brushes her hair and doesn't slouch all the time, maybe it won't be so bad.

And the funny part is that it's unusual complain about the men. I love song jae rim, but c'mon he's not better actor than lee ha na.

THANK YOU for this. I am getting so sick of the bitching? Like is there a single actress dramabeans commenters like???
I mean i get having preferences. i cannot stand the actress (idr her name) that jongsuk acted with in doctor stranger (the childhood love or w/e) and i have others i rly like vs others who are just ok. thats fine, but what about these actresses is so offensive that not a single one has any fans? i mean some actresses get more hate than others but this is becoming exhausting tbh. i feel like i need to just read recaps and articles on DB while avoiding the comments. which is too bad cause getting to talk about dramas with fellow fans is half the fun! but not enough if its just gonna be a litany of woman hating and internalized sexism.

I can name you one - Jung Yumi (discovery of love - although some people do dislike her character in the show)

I love you for this comment!!! The hate for various actresses is so unnecessary, plus it just gets repetitive. Guys don't get half as much criticism.

That's because every single one of those actresses you mentioned aren't great so of course there'll be criticism. Not everyone around here share the same opinion, you know. Also, this sexism is getting repetitive. There are TONS of popular actors that get criticized time and again like KSH, LMH, LSG, LJS, etc etc. So it's not female exclusice.

An actress that dramabeans regulars don't hate. Easy: Ha Ji-won, Shin Min-ah, Gong hyo-jin, etc. There are a lot, its just that some people like to think everyone is being 'hated'. God that word is so overused, its not even funny.

Yes, she really did and she was great. And she was good in another old show called maybe - When Spring Comes? She'll do fine in this role.

Yeah she totally did - amazing considering that is one of SYJ's best performances (imo). AIL made me a fan of both actresses :').

From what I can gather, Lee Hana's character would just be really smart? How is that a bad thing? How would that make her unkind? Need more info....

Still, I'm glad Song Jae-rim will finally be the lead in something.

Everyone in her family will be "hot-tempered". :))))

Maybe very sassy and always cursing? Haha~ looking forward to it. Makes me think of a more feisty So-eun from WGM.

so yet ANOTHER drama where he plays a character a stoic boring dude? this time with bonus asshole tendencies. lovely.
also lee hana's character sounds alot like the one she played in hkos. and unlike others, i'm fine with her. quirky is a good trait for an actress to have when her co star is sjr. the problem is this drama from the summary sounds p stock standard drama ish. aka boring as F. so...hopefully that's not how it works out. sjr is such a charming guy, and i am really glad he got a leading role but i hope its not a crappy role. *crosses fingers* i have hope he'll manage some chemistry with Hana and vice versa. tho in my heart i still want a drama with jae rim/so eun couple XD. (now that's a real life hot headed woman haha)

The main downside to this drama is that it'll end up getting swept under the rug by its competitors -- Kill me Heal Me and Jeykll and me, both of which would have been able to establish their viewer base a month in advance. Both are staring well-known actors and have a big fat $$ tag attached to it.
As happy as I am that adorkably cheesy Rim finally gets his first lead role, it's somewhat disheartening that pretty much the main buzz will be the other two shows. Still love hyun bin and ji sung, but my support has always been for the underdog.

Watching his human documentary that filmed his trip to cambodia to help out children in need, seeing him genuinely working hard and helping amongst all that pile of trash without showing any bit of complaint, he's pretty much won my heart over. He struggled alot with financial difficulties and lived on his own since 20. Even now that he's making money he still sends most of it to his mom. And he's not afraid to admit to working several part time jobs (restaurants, factories, shoe stores, etc) in the past to make a living. Basically, he's a male version of your typical "candy", but i'm all proud to see that his struggle will soon be gone. Love ya Rim!

you never know people might be bored of the personality disorder dramas and turn to this to give them something a little different (though the plot is quite simple)

But this would be the 2nd time he gets the girl. The 1st one was in Nail Shop Paris. I loved him then.

LOL major roll eyes at all the hate on Lee Ha Na for being ugly XD ..... sure, u must attack someone on that kind of aspect when u can't attack her for her acting .
Lee Ha Na is not only one of the quirkiest , loveliest and most talented actresses on her 30's in Korea ( Kang Hye Jung , Jung Yumi n Lee Ha Na must be the top 3 * personal opinion * ) , she's also a true beauty ( go and check her IG , natural beauty just screams thru the screen ... ) who can act, sing, compose and more , a true artist who has been headlining dramas and movies for almost a decade .
Weird? Ugly? That just screams how dedicated and awesome she is cos she's a true beauty who didn't care to look like a weirdo for the sake of her character and drama .... she was uglified for the drama and she showed what a true weirdo looks like , only good actresses like her can make the audience confused about the character and the actor behind the role .

Weird lips? XD perhaps it's a crime these days ..... maybe they should follow the trend and go and change 90% of her face like most of korean actresses these days ^^ rite? end of the rant .

* goes to watch the bubbly and gorgeous Hana in Alone in Love *

Congrats to the Maer-rim couple!! (@mary)

Sounds like Oppa has a whole lotta DB fans, largely thanks to mary and her friends at their Jeob site!

Happy that he's finally getting a lead role, and that his role will display his kooky charm and ass-ets to greatest advantage!

As for Lee Ha Na, I'm neutral. I liked her in High School King, and at least she had good chemistry with her leading man, just as Jaelim has with his ladies. That's the ingredient I'm most concerned with.

So it's happy Xmas all round!

Awesome! I guess his going on WGM paid off after all. I'm excited to see Lee Hana in something again too; I loved her in High School King. :) They should be an interesting onscreen match.

I read the whole article AFTER I read the premier date.
My only question was WHEN! :)
I discovered him ( and a couple of other actors/actresses) as Leader Mo. He played that very cool character perfectly.
I love quirk. Yes, he did give Nail Shop some redemption.
February is just around the corner. I should adjust my work schedule...

His co-star could be a shoe and I would still watch also he's a fencing instructor and fencing has always seemed super hot to me...

Jae Rim is a pretty mediocre actor at his best. But he has a nice face and Ha Na is a great and committed actress and the women-centered plot of the drama is intriguing so I'll check it out.
