Hong Eun-hee, Jeon Hye-bin, Kim Kyung-nam, and Go Won-hee confirmed for new KBS weekender
Hong Eun-hee, Jeon Hye-bin
The main lineup for KBS weekender Okay Gwang Sisters has been confirmed. This upcoming drama is mashup of many genres including mystery, thriller, melo, comedy, and family. Amidst the divorce proceedings of the Gwang sisters’ parents, their mother is murdered, and everyone in the family becomes a suspect.
Okay Gwang Sisters is being written by the queen of addictive family dramas, Moon Young-nam (Rosy Life, Wang Family). The core family consists of Yoon Joo-sang (The Uncanny Counter), Hong Eun-hee (Bad Detective), Jeon Hye-bin (Leverage), and Go Won-hee (Unique! Chef Moon).
Yoon Joo-sang plays the patriarch of the Gwang sister family. He was the firstborn son of a traditional family, and as a result, he’s a bit old-fashioned. Hong Eun-hee plays the oldest Gwang sister, Lee Gwang-nam, who is prideful and selfish. Definitely the most princessy of the bunch, Hong’s character received a lot of maternal love growing up, and she harbors a deep resentment toward her father for making her mother suffer. Her husband is played by Choi Dae-chul (Awaken), who is a successful lawyer. Although he’s agreed with his wife to use protection, in his heart, he’s always wanted a child.
Go Won-hee, Kim Kyung-nam
Jeon Hye-bin will be reuniting with writer Moon Young-nam, after their last family drama together, What’s Wrong Mr. Poong-sang. Jeon Hye-bin plays the second oldest Gwang sister named Lee Gwang-shik, and she’s a smart and righteous civil servant. Although she ends up making some wrong choices because of a lack of parental love while growing up, she is thoughtful and considerate. Kim Kyung-nam (The King: Eternal Monarch) plays a dropout that quit school to become a rockstar. He’s fairly good at singing and playing the guitar, and he has an awesome humor to match. It’ll be interesting to see how he intersects with the other sisters.
Go Won-hee plays the youngest Gwang sister, Lee Gwang-tae. She’s an eleventh-degree black belt in judo who has never held a permanent job. Her personality is refreshingly direct, and she’s all about the solo life, YOLO, and small happinesses. Seol Jung-hwan (Different Dreams) plays a bright, resourceful playboy until he’s caught in his own web of lies by Go Won-hee.
Of the supporting characters surrounding the family, there’s Lee Bo-hee (Everybody Say Kungdari) who plays Oh Bong-joo, the landlord of a studio building. She bought it after struggling hard to save up. Kim Hye-sun’s (Suspicious Mother-in-Law) character has a bickering relationship with Yoon Joo-sang, despite their age difference. Similarly, Lee Byung-joon (Eighteen Again) is the son of someone who once worked for Yoon Joo-sang’s family, but they have a bromantic relationship.
Ha Jae-sook (My Absolute Boyfriend, Perfume) plays the good-natured, generous owner of Choi Dae-chul’s favorite restaurant. Finally, Joo Seok-tae (Awaken) plays a man who’s constantly scheming to become wealthy enough to build a building.
Saturday-Sunday drama Okay Gwang Sisters, written by Moon Young-nam and directed by Lee Jin-seo (Mandate of Heaven, Baby-Faced Beauty), will begin airing in March on KBS.
