Kim So-yeon, Lee Pil-mo courted for MBC weekend drama
I like that Kim So-yeon (Falling for Innocence) is choosing lighter fare these days, though sometimes I do miss her badassery in action roles. She’s currently entertaining an offer to headline the new MBC weekend family drama All’s Well With a Happy Home, which I guess means that her stint on MBC’s variety show We Got Married is working out well for her (yunno, other than the obvious benefit of being faux-married to cutie-pie Kwak Shi-yang).
The drama will be about a family that owns a large restaurant in Chinatown, named (of course) All’s Well With a Happy Home. Kim So-yeon is considering a role as the family’s eldest daughter, a bright and happy older sister who’s dependable and looks out for her siblings. The drama is also courting Lee Pil-mo (Who Are You—School 2015) to co-star, which is great since he’s awesome and perfect for feel-good family drama. His role hasn’t been specified, so we’ll have to wait and see whether they’ll share a loveline.
Directing is PD Lee Dong-yoon (Fated To Love You, Queen’s Classroom, Feast of the Gods) and writing is Jo Eun-jung (Hotel King, Feast of the Gods). It seems fitting that the Feast of the Gods team will be reuniting for another food-related drama.
The series will be about a family that’s thrown into tumult over the threat of a divorce, and how they overcome it and learn to better understand each other. No matter how much they fight, they’re the kind of family that makes up over a warm bowl of jajangmyun. Great, guess I know what I’ll be eating when watching this drama.
All’s Well With a Happy Home follows Mom and premieres February 27.
