Rom-com drama Oh My Baby holds script reading with Jang Nara and cast
The script reading for drama Oh My Baby, starring Jang Nara (VIP) was held recently. She plays an honest and straightforward journalist who works for a magazine that specializes in infant care. Her character is 39 years old, single, and has no desire to get married–but would like to become a mother.
She may not be interested in marriage, but, she does have three men who could to step up to the plate if she ever gave them the chance. Go Joon (Fiery Priest, Misty) plays the older man, Park Byung-eun (Kingdom 2) plays her male friend, and Jung Geon-joo (Extraordinary You) plays the younger man who may be vying for her affections.
Go Joon plays a photographer who’s like an impregnable fortress when it comes to his will to be single. He’s a prickly macho man, but he does have his clumsy moments. Park Byung-eun plays a laidback single man, who wakes up one day to learn that he’s single parent. He has a bickering, yet caring relationship with Jang Nara’s character. Jung Geon-joo plays an innocent and impulsive noona-killer who meets Jang Nara when he joins her company as a rookie employee.
PD Nam Ki-hoon (Voice 3, The Beauty Inside) said that he wanted to show the as yet unseen side of women’s realities and problems, and create a relatable show. The writer Noh Sun-jae (Mirror of the Witch) says the drama is about finding one’s own happiness, and not living by the world’s standards.
Other actors who were present at the script reading include: Jang Gwang (Leverage), Kim Hye-ok (Home for Summer), Kim Jae-hwa (Extraordinary You), Sohn Eun-seo (Voice 3), Lizzy (Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency), Yoo Seung-mok (The Great Show), Jeon Jin-ki (Diary of a Prosecutor), Jo Hee-bong (Nokdu Flower), Lee Mi-do (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho 2), Wang Ji-hye (Player), and Kim Jung-hwa (Hot Stove League).
The premise of this drama reminds me of another from 2008 called Three Dads, One Mom, and it was hilarious. Hopefully, the Oh My Baby team will also be able to capture the rich comedy and meaningful moments available in child-rearing scenarios.
tvN Wednesday-Thursday drama Oh My Baby, directed by Nam Ki-hoon and written by Noh Sun-jae, will begin airing in May.
