Kim Tae-hee becomes a ghost for tvN’s Hi Bye, Mama!
Kim Tae-hee, Lee Kyu-hyung
After a five year hiatus during which she got married and had two children, Kim Tae-hee (Yong-pal) has finally confirmed her next project: Hi Bye, Mama! This upcoming tvN drama is about a woman who is separated from her family after her sudden, accidental death. It’s the story of her ghostly reappearance in her husband and daughter’s lives and her journey to reincarnation.
Kim Tae-hee’s character is an upbeat, nosy spirit who’s clocked five years as a ghost. Generally, she’s a cheerful optimist despite her spectral status, but she hasn’t been able to ascend because of her one regret: not having been able to hold her child. For some reason, instead of receiving her eternal judgement in the afterlife, she’s given a chance to return to the world of the living for 49 days with a chance to prove herself.
Her husband, a cardiothoracic surgeon, will be played by Lee Kyu-hyung (Doctor John). He has buried his grief for his wife and first love deep in his heart. Although he was originally warm and friendly, after Kim Tae-hee’s death, his personality changed. When his wife appears in front of him again, his whole world is thrown into tumult.
The director for this drama is Yoo Je-won, who has directed some of my other favorite supernatural dramas, Oh My Ghostess and Tomorrow With You. Additionally, Go Back Spouses writer Kwon Hye-joo is on board as the screenwriter, so I’m definitely anticipating some laughs as well as heart-wrenching moments.
Saturday-Sunday drama Hi Bye Mama! has begun filming and will air in the first half of 2020 on tvN.
