Actress Kim So-Yeon has dropped out of upcoming KBS2 drama series “Father is Strange” starring Lee Joon & Jung So-Min. Kim So-Yeon was first cast to play older sister Hye-Young, but has decided to drop out of the drama series for personal reasons. She did have discussions with the staff and made the decision to drop out of the series. The first script reading has been rescheduled from January 2, 2017 to January 8, 2017.

Ryu Hwa-Young (ex ‘T-rara’ member) is still considering an offer to play the youngest sister and veteran actress Kim Hae-Sook is still considering an offer to play a major supporting character. Meanwhile, actor Ryu Soo-Young has been offered a role in the drama series and he is currently considering. If Ryu Soo-Young accepts, he will will play Cha Jung-Hwan. His character is the PD of a broadcasting station.

“Father is Strange” will first air sometime during February, 2017 in South Korea.

Ryu Soo Young, I googled him and he's good looking ahjussi, I think I have watched him several times in drama tv's that's why I could recognized him. Too bad he will not be partnered up with Kim Soyeon due to certain circumstances, I understand Kim Soyeon's decision to not get the same role and script over and over again, she's a versatile actress, so that's explained a lot. 

I am excited to watch this drama on February, hopefully Kim Haesook and Ryu Hwayoung accept the offer so we got to see a beautiful looking family in one drama!

Another Happy Home actor is joining the drama Father is Weird. :w00t:

Ahn Hyo-seop confirmed to play the role of  Park Cheol-soo (Chul Soo? He has the same first name :)) , a person who majored in soccer and graduated from the department of social sports. He is also a rich person. He will be in a relationship with the youngest daughter played by Ryu Hwa-young.

I am sad that Kim So-Yeon decided to drop out.
I am doubly sad, if that is because they decided to focus on the younger pair.
I prefer an all round family drama, where everyone is in the limelight.

But I love the news of Ryu Soo-Young joining the drama. If Kim So-Yeon had stayed on, that would have been their reunion in a drama since Two Weeks.

But I loved Ryu Soo-Young in every drama I have seen him in, and most notably in most recent drama Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-Ho, and the quirky short rom com The Virtual Bride, where he was paired with a much younger actress - Sistar's Dasom. They were so good together, and their chemistry was off the charts.  We were totally in love with that couple. Makes me want to see him again in a romantic role like that.

 It still could be an all round family drama. I believe they have micro stories for all the couples in this drama. There were changes in the drama and I have to say that just from the little synopsis that we got, I was not happy with the story they prepared for her. I will watch a little to see how it will be on screen. I love Ryun Soo young too and it would have been great to see them explore this couple on screen after Two Weeks. Look how adorable they were behind the scene. Link 1 Link 2

Ryu Soo young was in Ojakgyo Brothers (the writer`s other successful family drama) and despite being the second couple, his story line was one of the public favorite. He won the best couple award with his partner on screen. Even from me, it was a surprising news that Soyeon dropped the drama. It was sudden and really something happened. KBS family dramas have good rating so for her it was a guarantee of payment so I doubt it was an easy decision. She prepared for the role for a long time. I want to believe that another better opportunity came her way than to suspect her dissatisfaction with the story or other personal reasons.  But I support her as she knows the best what is good for her.

Soyeon dropping the show doesn`t affect the drama. They will find another actress and I am sure that she will do a great pair with Ryu Soo young too.

 Yes, Ahn Hyo-seop was Chul soo, the young man who had a crush on Mi soon. The public even wanted a romantic story line with them, with a hug age gap. Now he has a partner around his age and I think the audience will be looking forward to see them even more. :)

Thank you for letting us know. I have not yet watched Ojakgyo Brothers, but I heard lots of good things about it. It is on my "to watch" list.

I hope so, and you are most likely correct. I read in the Korean press that she dropped for personal reasons

AsianWiki says that the script reading is now postponed to Jan.8th, so they have little time to fill in the spots.

News bites: December 31, 2016

  • Citing personal reasons, Kim So-yeon (All’s Well With a Happy Home) has dropped out of Father Is Weird, and now the show is on the search for a replacement to play the lead and eldest daughter. On the other hand, they may have found her character’s love interest: Ryu Soo-young (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho) is in negotiations to take the male lead, a variety PD who is actually a talented, qualified director but who’s constantly berated for not being trendy enough. Ahn Hyo-sub (Entertainer) has been cast in a loveline with Ryu Hwa-young (Age of Youth), and while Ryu’s character has no shortage of men by her side, he’ll be the one who gets her to settle down. Ahn’s character wanted to be a soccer player but due to his father’s disapproval, he ends up coaching young, aspiring soccer players instead. About the sons and daughters of the owner of a humble snack restaurant on the outskirts of Seoul, the warm and comedic family drama has also cast Kim Young-chul (Happy Home), Jung So-min (D-Day) and Lee Joon (Woman With a Suitcase) and will follow Laurel Tree Tailors on KBS.

Why they just cast Ahn Hyo-seop? His acting never improved from One More Happy Ending. His roles always the same.

Good to see  Min Jin-woong  after Drinking Solo, I hope the script will help us laugh more than makjang and dragging.

There are many Korean actors and actresses that would fit this criteria....  (I have a long list of mine own..B)).
I thought he was cute in Happy Home.
I am happy we have many good solid actors among the cast.

Thank you @larus, for updates on cast confirmations.
