Han Chae-ah offered lead role in MBC weekender Money Flower
Previously, it was Hotel King’s Lee Da-hae who was considering the family drama called Money Flower, and now Han Chae-ah (Master of Trade—Inn 2015) has also been offered a main leading part. Neither actress has officially announced whether she will be accepting or declining the role, and it’s not clear which roles they’re specifically considering.
Not much regarding the actual drama has been revealed, although we know that Money Flower is going to be helmed by PD Lee Hyung-sun, who directed family dramas I Summon You, Gold and Always Spring, which both ended up with much higher ratings than they began. Despite not liking her character in Master of Trade—Inn 2015, I’ve liked Han Chae-ah since one of her first acting roles in Definitely Neighbors, where she played an immature but lovable sister to the main heroine. She has undeniably improved since those days, and her extended cameo in Introverted Boss and her chemistry with Yeon Woo-jin may have been my favorite part of that drama.
Without story or character descriptions, it’s hard to say whether the actresses are up for the same role, or whether they’re both being offered different parts. Either way, I think I’ll be happy to see either (or both) of these actresses back on TV screens.
MBC’s Saturday-Sunday drama Money Flower will air beginning in November, after the end of Thief-nom, Thief-nim.
