Goodbye My Beloved adds Ra Mi-ran, Yoon Park, Kim In-kwon


Ra Mi-ran, Yoon Park, Kim In-kwon

Every time they add more cast members to this drama, the plot description changes. Is it a tactic to make us watch the first episode just to find out what the heck everyone’s relationships are to one another? You’d think because it’s a remake — of Japanese novel Mr. Tsubakiyama’s Seven Days — that the drama’s setup would be clearer. SBS’s adaptation Goodbye My Beloved has secured leads Rain (She’s So Lovable), Oh Yeon-seo (Shine or Go Crazy), and Lee Min-jung (Sly and Single Again), and now the production is rounding out the cast with some fantastic supporting players for the ghost-possession human comedy.

The always funny and amazing Ra Mi-ran (Jung-hwan’s mom in Answer Me 1988) has signed on, though there’s no character information about her role yet. She’s an award-winning supporting actress in film and television who’s already well known, but she’s pretty much become a household name by playing the most awesome of all the moms in Answer Me 1988, with her deadpan humor, amazing(ly bad) ’80s fashions, and wonderfully moving under-the-surface emotions. She makes that character seem like a real person, and I’m just constantly amazed by her.

Ra Mi-ran’s Himalaya costar and film actor Kim In-kwon has also signed on — he hasn’t been in a drama since You’re Beautiful, but he’s returning to TV to take on what I think is technically the title role. He’s playing a middle-aged man who dies of overwork and gets to come back to the land of the living in the body of Rain. Which is confusing because Kim Su-ro (A Gentleman’s Dignity) is ALSO playing an ajusshi who dies and comes back, but he’s going to possess Oh Yeon-seo. So… both leads will be possessed by ajusshis… which makes the potential loveline a confusing one, that’s for sure.

Maybe the loveline goes the other way, because Lee Min-jung is a widow who has a love triangle with Rain (possessed by her husband, I gather) and Yoon Park (Queen’s Flower, What’s With This Family). Like I said, complicated. I won’t worry about it too much though, since the drama’s focus is on how these ghosts use their trip to make sure that their loved ones are taken care of, and to say their proper goodbyes. It’ll all make sense, right?

Goodbye My Beloved follows Remember—Son’s War on Wednesdays and Thursdays in March.

That is a hecka confusing premise. But if it's done for comedy, I'll start to get excited about that premise. The cast is A class though, so if anything that's winsome.

Ra Mi-ran? She's got a Blue Dragon award and is in demand working in both films and dramas. Since 2014 she's been in like 9 films, 6-7 dramas and a series of the variety show Real Men. She's great in Answer Me 1988 don't get me wrong but it's one of many roles.

No doubt Ra Mi-ran has had a long and busy career as a supporting actress prior to AM1988, but this role has boosted her name recognition, just as the 1st AM did for Sung Dong-il and to a lesser extent, Lee Il-hwa - where SDI has even managed to land a couple of roles beyond the usual supporting/character.

Yeay, Yoon Bak in this drama. So ex-JYPE artist in same drama with current JYP Actor as love rival. Bring it on.

No kids for the widow? or any children in this drama. Rain without young kid around is not complete.

The casting is really awesome. I love Cheetah ahjumma, rain, oh yeon seo, and kim suro. The writer wrote 200 pounds of Beauty while the pd did Rooftop Prince and Ugly alerts too.

I'm a tad worried about this drama going againts Song Hye Kyo and Moon Chae Won dramas. Both dramas are from high ratings writers.

Although i was hoping Rain and Oh Yeon Seo love line, i guess It isn't going to happen. Rain will have his own story with Lee Min Jung while Oh Yeon Seo will be possesed by the ghost who left his wife and son behind which from my prediction is Honey Lee. It will be funny lol judging their butting head roles in Shine or Go Crazy.. Will now Oh yeon Seo be looking at Honey lee lovingly? lol

Leave it to Korea to pervert a story like this into the typical "woman gets her choice between upgrade and an adoring sidepiece"... reverse the genders and I suspect intense backlash would surely follow.

i love jung-hwan's mom! i didn't realize she was already a well regarded film actress. i knew i'd seen her before, but didn't know where. i just figured i'd seen her play some wicked malicious ajumma type in a drama somewhere.

i initially didn't like her for that reason—she can look scary and mean!—but man oh man, she does a hell of a job playing jung-hwan's mom. just amazing.

Ok, seriously can we take Rain out of this project? Like seriously! Put someone else that I can trust because the line up seems pretty awesome except Rain.

If only Kim Min-Jung disappeared from this production. She ruins every drama she is in.

I prefer the earlier synopsis before because i don't like lee min jung acting. It's better to have Rain and the female lead falling in love. They match better
