수목드라마 - Wed/Thu Drama [follows 스마일 어게인 (Smile Again)]2006/07/12~ [SBS]PD: COLD
Doesn't promise too well, as we're dealing with wastes of time like 요조숙녀 (My Fair Lady), 정 (Affection) and 로펌 (Law Firm), coupled with a few Holiday Specials. But then again this is neither a Sageuk nor some flashy Miniseries shot overseas (I hope), so the hand of the PD has much less weight. Shouldn't be that bad, all considered.WRITER: COLD
Not too familiar with this writer, although he's been active for a good 15 years. But most of his works have been in the Daily Drama and Short Drama field, so I can't really say.CAST: HOT
Shim Hye-Jin, Park Jin-Hee, Jung Woong-In
Yoon Da Hoon, Lee Jae-Hwang
The first three names should be enough, especially since this will be a romantic comedy. Shim Hye-Jin can still be great in comedies, as seen recently in 안녕, 프란체스카 (Hello, Francesca), and Park Jin-Hee is one of the most underused young talents in the business. As for Jung Woong-In, he's shown admirable range in both comedies and Dramas -- and even Sageuk, with his role in 홍국영 (Hong Guk-Young) standing out.
With a few good veterans thrown in the mix, could be great. [Yoon Da Hoon replaced Jung Woong In]OUTLINE: HOT
For once, something a little fresh, at least by K-Drama standards. We're talking body exchange, which has been done many times on the big screen, but rarely on Korean TV. The idea of Park Jin-Hee playing an Ajumma and Shim Hye-Jin going into sexy mode sounds just about right (the initial setup is the opposite, obviously), and if the script builds on the interesting outline, this could be fun.WEATHER:
Sounds like a nice day, for once. Now the final word goes to the writer.
Add another actress to the list of stars returning to the small screen, as Park Jin-Hee is making her comeback to TV for the first time since 2002's 그대를 알고부터 (Since I Knew You). Park will star in the upcoming SBS Wed/Thu Drama 돌아온 순애 (The Return of Soon-Ae), which is produced by Han Jung-Hwan and written by Choi Soon-Shik. In the show, we start with Shim playing an average ajumma in her early 30s, Park a sexy stewardess. But, and here's the key of the show, after an accident they end up in the other's body, and forced to live by their rules. So sexy Park starts acting like an Ajumma, and Ajumma Shim starts acting sexy... something like that. The rest of the cast looks quite good, with Jung Woong-In
Yoon Da Hoon and Lee Jae-Hwang joining in as the two's partners. The show will start broadcasting from July 12, after the end of 스마일 어게인 (Smile Again).Yahoo Korea - 6/5
돌아온 순애? More like 돌아온 진희!
Been waiting for Park Jin Hee's return to TV for quite some time now. I don't think her movies have been that successful, but a great actress nontheless (remember 비단향꽃무/Stock Flower?). And Shim Hye Jin, who most will recognize as "the evil mom" in Goong, works great in comedy as well as seen in Hello Franceska. She's great in pretty much anything. (그 여자, 안녕, 프란체스카)
This is one drama I'm definitely excited to see!
