Two Weeks, 49 Days writer pens new rom-com for tvN
Okay, you’ve got my attention. Hit writer So Hyun-kyung of Two Weeks, My Daughter Seo-young, 49 Days, Prosecutor Princess, Brilliant Legacy, and so on, has lined up her next drama project. Count me in. She’s headed over to tvN to do a new romantic comedy called Our Heaven, about an ajumma who goes back to college to try and reset her life. Ooh, is this Angry Mom with a legal loveline?
It’ll be an upbeat campus romance, about a 38-year-old ajumma who wants a redo and decides to start her life over by going to college. She’ll become a freshman and mix it up with 20-year-olds, though we’re not told whether she’s owning her age or keeping that under wraps. The latter would be the funnier version, naturally. And I sort of like the idea that she might lie about her age for no other reason than vanity.
The drama is about her finding love, discovering her dreams, and changing the course of her life in the process. It sounds like an empowering story about a really interesting heroine, and coming from this writer, I fully expect strong characters and a cracktastic, well-developed plot. It’s actually a shame that Kim Hee-sun already has such a similar drama under her belt because she’d be such a great fit, but I’m sure there are lots of leading actresses who could pull off a college freshman look. When will Lee Bo-young be back at work?
Directing is PD Kim Hyung-shik of Secret Door, Suspicious Housekeeper, Ghost, and Sign. Our Heaven has been scheduled to follow Oh My Ghostess on Fridays and Saturdays beginning in August, and will begin casting shortly.
