Kim Haneul, Lee Sang-yoon confirm On the Way to the Airport
Casting is off to a great start for upcoming Wednesday-Thursday KBS romantic melodrama, On the Way to the Airport. Lovely actress Kim Haneul (Gentleman’s Dignity) and dimple-cheeked man-boy Lee Sang-yoon (Twenty Again) have both been confirmed as the leads. Having seen them in their latest drama projects, I can guarantee they both have acting chops. Plus, both have experience working in dramas about forbidden love.
On the Way to the Airport explores the age-old question: Can women and men just be friends? How does marriage affect making friendships with people of the opposite sex? Kim Haneul and Lee Sang-yoon play married individuals (married to other people) who meet by fate, and become more involved in each others’ lives.
Kim plays 12-year veteran airplane stewardess Choi Soo-ah who fell in love with her pilot in her earlier days and promptly got married. They now have an adorable daughter in fifth grade. Good-natured and sociable, Soo-ah is a born natural at her job as a stewardess. When not at work, she rates herself as an 85-point mom and wife. That is until she meets Seo Do-woo.
Lee has taken on the role of Seo Do-woo, who is a part-time university lecturer in architecture. He’s described as a cheerful upright attractive man with a very harmonious family life until one day a shocking event occurs that throws his world into chaos.
This new drama On the Way to the Airport is set to air after Uncontrollably Fond in September.
