Han Ye-seul considers offer to headline No Sex and the City
Fall MBC drama No Sex and the City may have found its female lead in Han Ye-seul (Madam Antoine). Although her agency has said that it’s only one of a few projects she’s currently reviewing, I think this type of drama would be a perfect match for her vibrant personality and acting style. This new rom-com will be about the cherished friendships, family life, and romantic attachments of three 35-year-old virgins living in the city.
It’ll show their different paths of growth into maturity as their relationships with the people around them begin to deepen and change. Brought to us by Writer Lee Sun-hye, who co-wrote the popular Answer Me series, the drama will explore key themes such as the meaning of family, the duties of a daughter, and the support of close-knit neighbors. From these early descriptions, No Sex and the City seems to be about the issues of being a 21st-century woman that were present in the I Need Romance series, with the human touch that always pervaded the Answer Me series.
After watching Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju earlier this year, I can’t wait to squeal over another awesome female friendship trio. So I’m eagerly looking forward to No Sex and the City, especially if Han Ye-seul joins as one of the three self-sufficient strong women in the main cast. I think Han Ye-seul’s sexy image fits more with a character who is a haughty heiress (Fantasy Couple) or successful career woman (Miss Gold Digger) than the country bumpkin/innocent heroine types that she’s played recently. In addition, for me, her last two projects Madam Antoine and Birth of a Beauty didn’t use her comedic talents to their fullest extent, so I’m hoping her next drama will.
No Sex and the City will follow The King Loves, which is the sageuk scheduled after currently airing Monday-Tuesday drama Lookout, putting its premiere in September.
