Kim Tae-hee reunites with Lee Kyu-hyung in new teaser for tvN’s Hi Bye, Mama!
A new video teaser has been released for tvN’s upcoming Hi Bye, Mama! featuring lead actors Kim Tae-hee (Yong-pal) and Lee Kyu-hyung (Doctor John).
The story is centered around Kim Tae-hee’s character, Cha Yuri, who sadly dies in a sudden accident. However, due to the heartache of not being able to raise her own child, she’s been lingering as a ghost for 5 years and continues to delay her passage to the afterlife. As a result, the heavens grant her an exception and she is given the chance to complete her 49-day journey to reincarnation in the land of the living instead. And she reappears in front of her young daughter and husband Jo Kang-hwa, played by Lee Kyu-hyung, who are thrown for the loop when they see her.
The teaser starts with a distraught Lee Kyu-hyung rushing through the police station. In voice-over, we hear the police officer who called him: “You’re Cha Yuri’s husband, correct? Cha Yuri is here at the police station right now. Could you please come and verify a few things?” Stumbling into the main office, Lee looks around frantically and calls out for his wife. When he sees Kim Tae-hee, he freezes in shock. Kim, in the middle of eating, drops her bowl when she sees her husband and Lee promptly faints.
Cut to two police officers reviewing Kim Tae-hee’s records on the computer: “Cha Yuri, you’ve been registered as deceased…” A close-up of the monitor shows December 2015 as the date of death and the officers stare blankly at her. Kim tries to rouse Lee Kyu-hyung who is passed out over the back of the chair: “Honey…Please get up…” Suddenly coming alert, Lee tries explaining the situation to the officers: “Five years ago, my wife di–” However, while he’s speaking, he locks eyes with Kim Tae-hee and promptly faints again. The teaser closes with Kim’s voice-over: “A 49-day reincarnation story. Hi Bye, Mama!”
Writing for the drama is Kwon Hye-joo (Go Back Spouses) and directing will be helmed by PD Yoo Je-won (Abyss, Oh My Ghostess).
tvN’s Hi Bye, Mama! is currently set to premiere next month, on February 22, and will be airing Saturdays and Sundays following Crash Landing On You.
