Hyeri offers her special funeral services in MBC’s May I Help You
The first promos have arrived for MBC’s fantasy-romance May I Help You, including a new poster and video teaser of our story’s heroine, Hyeri (Moonshine).
Hyeri’s character is funeral director Baek Dong-joo, who has been gifted with a miraculous touch that allows her to talk to the recently deceased — the caveat being if she doesn’t help fulfill their last wishes, she has to suffer endless bad luck in her own life.
During her quests, she ends up partnering with a man known as Butler Kim, who is played by Jun (a.k.a. Lee Jun-young) (Let Me Be Your Knight). As an employee of an errands service, Butler Kim is always ready to help his clients – no matter what they request. Thus, while Kim serves the living, Dong-joo serves the dead.
To complete our love square, we have Song Deok-ho (Link: Eat, Love, Kill) playing Officer Seo Hae-ahn and Han Dong-hee (The One and Only) playing Resident Doctor Tak Chung-ha. The supporting cast also includes Tae In-ho (Ghost Doctor) as Dong-joo’s boss, Lee Kyu-han (Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick) playing Kim’s uncle, and local priest Oh Dae-hwan (Adamas) – the only person (so far) who knows about Dong-joo’s mysterious ability.
In the newly released teaser, we open on a group job interview, where our heroine declares her determination to work as a funeral director at the hospital. She’s confused when Boss Tae In-ho asks about not being afraid, but we quickly then cut to Dong-joo’s first jump-scare when a dead child taps her shoulder.
After realizing her hidden power and what it means, Dong-joo heads straight to the confessional to talk to the priest. Rather than being amazed, though, our heroine is at her wit’s end. Ranting that her life is hard enough as it is, we end on a fatigued Dong-joo who wonders why it had to be her of all people.
Co-directed by PD Shim So-yeon (Welcome 2 Life) and PD Park Sun-young with scripts penned by Lee Sun-hye (20th Century Boy and Girl), May I Help You premieres next month on October 19 in the Wednesday-Thursday slot.
