Signal, Misaeng PD in talks to team up with Oh Hae-young writer
This’ll be one hell of a combination if it comes to pass: Star PD Kim Won-seok of Signal, Misaeng, Monstar, and Sungkyunkwan Scandal is currently in talks to helm the next drama from writer Park Hae-young, who penned last year’s hit rom-com Oh Hae-young Again. Separately, their projects were massive hits for tvN, so I can only imagine what they’ll manage to do together.
The series is still in early development, so there isn’t even a title or a measly breadcrumb about the plot to tide us over. I’m very curious to see what writer Park Hae-young will do next, since her previous projects were long-running series I Live in Cheongdam-dong and Old Miss Diaries, and Oh Hae-young Again was her big star-making turn. I’m hoping for another fantasy romance from her, even though I’d technically call Oh Hae-young 90 percent realism and 10 percent fantasy. Really though, I wouldn’t care what it was about as long as we got another flawed, relatable heroine like Oh Hae-young.
Park Hae-young’s new drama is tentatively being planned for a 2018 broadcast on tvN, so the question seems to be whether or not PD Kim Won-seok will sign on to direct. I really hope he does, because this is one collaboration I would love to see. He’s the kind of director who’s good no matter what genre he tackles, from thrillers to fusion sageuks to youth music dramas, and he seems to enjoy changing it up with every new project. All I know is, if he signs on, even if it’s a rom-com it’ll somehow turn me into a nail-biting drama-watching zombie.
