Wonderful cast and crew gather for Father, I’ll Take Care of You

Personally, I think there’s nothing more warming than a well-made weekend family drama. After browsing through the few first episodes of the currently airing weekend dramas, I must admit I haven’t been blown out of the water by my viewing options. So I’m hoping Father, I’ll Take Care of You, which is MBC’s upcoming show, will satisfy my itch. The leading actors they’ve cast have exponentially raised my hopes for it.

For Father, I’ll Take Care of You, writer Jo Jung-sun of My Heart Twinkle Twinkle and Sons of Sol Pharmacy has created a story about an elderly couple who have spent their entire lives raising their four children to become strong independent adults. When their kids finally leave, the two are ecstatic for the chance to rediscover who they were before their children and start life anew. Just when they think they’ve finally emptied their nest, all their spoiled progeny descend back into the house all at once.

Actress Lee Soo-kyung (My Little Baby) has been attached to the project since August, as one of the four siblings. Her character’s personality is described as free-spirited and bright but clumsy. She’s tried almost every job under the sun, from travel-writing to singer-songwriting to tarot card-reading. Her love interest will be played by the sunny-faced Kim Jae-won (Hwajeong), who will be an international investment firm CEO and real estate developer with a kind disposition to match his good looks. During the drama, Lee Soo-kyung’s character settles into her position as the manager of a cafe in Kim Jae-won’s building, where I’m assuming many meet-cute romantic coincidences will occur.

Her youngest brother will be played by Lee Tae-hwan, who has recently gained much popularity through his role as bodyguard-secretary in W–Two Worlds. For Father, I’ll Take Care of You, he will play an earnest hard-worker who has become one of the youngest directors in his company. In addition, Park Eun-bin (Age of Youth) has confirmed her part as a girl who secretly dreams of becoming a great writer. However, in reality she is constantly hounded by a slave contract she had to make because of her wayward brother’s debts.

Father, I’ll Take Care of You recently held its first script read with its promising cast. The weekend MBC family drama will begin in November, after Flower in Prison finishes its run.

I need my eyes checked. Mistook Kim Jae-won for Namgoong Min, and then Lee Tae-hwan for Ryu Jun-yeol. Yikes.

The four leads actually sound like nice, decent people, and not a chaebol in sight (yet).

Plus Park Eun-bin's char is also a writer. We can just imagine it's Song Ji-won post-Age of Youth. (Hoping the character is well-written...)

I'm on the verge of crying over how good this sounds. I cannot agree with tineybeanie enough, there is seriously nothing else that beats a good family weekend drama.

It's like, after weeks of staggering through the harsh, acrid desert of primetime kdrama wangst, you finally reach a cool, soothing oasis with steady character development and heartwarming fluff.

I mean sure, we still have the crazy mother in laws and noble idiots (in fact I'm pretty sure weekend kdramas multiply the crazy MIL trope by a billion), but something about weekend kdrama just makes it more bearable.

I feel like maybe it's because characters are fleshed out more, and allowed to show more of a personality, so you really get to understand their point of view and choices better. That understanding makes even the tropiest of tropes feel more real and believable.

Plus it's so nice to have a drama that sticks around for a long time. Like you get to know the characters more than you ever would with primetime, they become familiar faces and personalities...and idk, it just makes the whole thing feel more intimate.

And, tbh, I'm always a fan of the slowburn romance that litters these dramas. I don't know if it's the romantic or masochist side of me, but there is something immensely satisfying about seeing an OTP come together after 40-70 episodes of will-they-won't-they(-of-course-they-will).

And I have to say the BIGGEST perk is that you usually get to see your ship live out their romance for another good 30-50 eps too! Now that is good pay-off for all the time invested in watching their blooming romance.

I mean, I hate it when a couple only gets together the last minute so you barely get to see any of their eventual happiness even though you suffered right alongside them through WEEKS of pining/noble idiocy/misunderstanding/general misery. I can never shake off that feeling when you finish a kdrama like that and feel like you've just been terribly ripped off.

And lol I've almost used up all my characters. Didn't mean to write a minni-essya, but yeah, to finish off: family weekend kdramas FTW! XD

I have my fingers crossed for this one. Sons of Sol Pharmacy was sooooo good, I still think about it and wish one of the streaming sites would put it up, but Twinkle Twinkle was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad. Like "I'm not even sure how the two emerged from the mind of the same human person" bad. Please writer Jo Jung-sun, let's do heartwarming and awesome! :)

Twinkle Twinkle is the one that has the domestic abuser as the MC right? And then ended with the possibility of the the lead female ending up with him after his jail stint? Yeah, that was horrifying.

I agree with you that currently airing weekend dramas still not caught my interest yet, even i still watching Our Gabsoon and Tailor.

Hope this drama will deliver and in term of rating, I think it will do well. The current FIP also getting decent rating. Cannot wait to see FIP ends to watch this drama! November is not too long though,.

I just finished Five Kids and that was good and low on drama though there were times when some of the characters really pinged my anxiety, lol. But it also made me realize how much of a talented character actor Shin Hye Sun is. It took me about half way through the show to realize I had watched her in three other dramas.

I like the cast here and the premise seems good so I think I'll end up watching this. I do like the occasional weekend drama and like Fish N' Chips said above, I do like the overall execution of romance on these shows. Plus, I'm so excited for Lee Tae Hwan to have actual lines and characterization to work with especially if he's paired with Eun Bin who is always great. I was wondering what Kim Jae Won was up to, as well.

I wonder who will play the other 2 siblings, though.

The only family drama which catches my interest is My Daughter, Seo Young. I watched it late, to fill my days during the Cheese in the Trap era and ended up loving it to bits. After that I tried to watch What Happened with My Family and Wonderful Days but they were so boring that I had to ffwd almost 90% of the scene.
Recently I watched Five Kids but the only interesting part was Sangmin - Yeontae.

Kim Nam Joo's "My Husband Got A Family" is hilarious too. Unlike Five Kids, all the storylines are interesting. ^___^
