Hello @Go Seung Jidragonhiplz.gif?1 Thank You for starting this thread. I was wondering what drama is going to follow Laurel Tree Tailors. I'm so happy that it will be a drama W/Lee Joon:wub:. Count me in I'm loving the KBS weekend dramas. I love Kim So Yeon too.

@irilight Hello sister This is going to be fun. I'm happy your on board.

@sava2sava It wouldn't feel like a weekend drama w/out you. I'm happy your on board too. I loved Three Fathers and a Mother!

I read about this drama yesterday but not even in my wildest dreams thought that Kim So Yeon will play in this drama. A week- end family drama again? :sweatingbullets: Hope it is a good drama and her role is interesting. She will be pair with Lee Joon? A noona romance? Let see how it will be this pair. Or maybe they are not romantically involved in the story. Maybe he will be the brother...

Reading that Joo Jin-mo was originally courted to play the protagonist I am a little sad. I wanted so bad a reunion with my girl in another project! Hope they will have this opportunity again. 

I wonder if Kim Young Chul will play her father again.:) I am not sure if Jung So Min will be paired with the protagonist at this point. I bet she and Soyeon are playing sisters. I think I need more information about this drama. Hope will have the cast soon. If it is a February drama, they have to start the filming.

This is a family drama. I read that the main family has three daughters. I watched just one family drama so I am not an expert but from what I know, all three daughters will have a romantic interest. It is more evident that Lee joon will be paired with Jung Soo Min, who I assume will play the youngest daughter. Kim Soyeon  will play the second daughter, a lawyer.

I think Kim so yeon will be paired with Kim Sang Kyung. That makes more sense. I don`t think Lee Joon will play the role instead of Joo Jin Mo. Kim Sang Kyung is similar in age with Joo Jin Mo. It is not my dream reunion :tears: but it is still a reunion. Kim so yeon and Kim Sang Kyung played together in 2004 Human Market. She played the second lead there and she had a crush on Lee sang Kyung`s character. From unrequited love to romantic interest. It is something new for this pair. :)

Casting news...

Kim Sang Kyung received the proposal to play in Father is Weird, to play the role of Cha Jeong-hwan who will have a romance with Kim So yeon`s character. So, mystery is solved. So we have to wait if he will accept the role.

The article says that Kim Sang-kyung's agency told OSEN, "The Synopsis of 'My father is strange' has only been passed on to the management team, and the actor has not even reviewed it."

Yeah, basically in weekend family dramas, fathers and mothers are the main character and then come their daughters and sons with their individual love lines.

Can't wait to get to know the full cast.

It will be my first family drama that have so many couples and story-lines.  I hope I will like it because I am stuck with this show.

Yeah... I can`t wait to know the whole cast and more information about the character and family relationships.  It is a mystery why the father was hiding his identity for so many years and why he accepts a "son" in the family knowing that he is not his biological son.

I wonder about the genre. It is a family comedy drama? It doesn`t sound like a melodrama but who knows?

Kim So-yeon joins cast of ‘Father is Strange’

 

 

Dec 16,2016

15202201.jpg

Actress Kim So-yeon is joining singer-turned-actor Lee Joon for the upcoming KBS2 drama “Father is Strange.”

The two will be taking the leading roles in the upcoming drama. The show will be about the story of a father who reveals his identity to his children in the midst of their marriage preparations.

The upcoming drama will take the timeslot of “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop,” and is to be directed by Lee Jae-sang, who previously directed KBS2 drama “Bel Ami” (2013) and “Trot Lovers” (2014).

Kim is a veteran actress who appeared in nearly 30 television productions since her debut in 1994. She was cast in the critically acclaimed 2009 KBS2 drama “Iris,” and later made a special appearance in its sequels. She recently starred in the MBC drama “Happy Home,” which ended in August.

“I’m happy that I’m able to take on a new character so soon after the conclusion of my previous drama,” Kim said. “I chose to become involved with this drama in order to challenge myself.”

Her co-star Lee Joon is a former member of the K-pop band Mblaq. He has been keeping busy this year as an actor, and recently starred in the comedy blockbuster “Luck-key.”

Kim So-yeon confirms KBS weekend drama Father Is Weird

by tineybeanie | December 15, 2016 | 1 Comment
 

ksy0.jpg

More information regarding KBS family drama Father Is Weird has been released with new actors joining and others confirming their roles. Kim So-yeon (All’s Well With a Happy Home) has been added as the latest member of the cast, as the eldest daughter of the central family. Father Is Weird is purported to be a warm feel-good drama centered around a family living in the suburbs of Seoul.

The titular patriarch of the family will be played by Kim Young-chul, who coincidentally also played Kim So-yeon’s father in their last project, All’s Well With a Happy Home. The similarities don’t end there. For Happy Home, he played the owner of a Chinese restaurant, and for this upcoming drama, he’s been cast as the owner of a snack restaurant. He loves his wife and four kids, but has been hiding a deep secret for many years.
