Cho Young-ran is in a loveless marriage due to her aloof and insensitive husband.

Her shopaholic older sister desires a glamorous life,

but her poor economic situation leads her to frequently quarrel with her husband.

Young-ran’s younger sister has a well-paying job,

but is married to a mama’s boy.

This is a story about these three sisters and their topsy-turvy lives!

Young-ran is a pretty housewife with a sweet personality.

She married her husband after just dating him for a week.

But her husband lacks the warmth that she craves for in a loving marriage.

Whenever her husband comes back from work,

all he manages to ask is “What’s for dinner?”.

Later on, she is shocked to find out that her husband is having an affair

with his former girlfriend.

One day, her husband’s mistress suddenly goes missing…

Suspicions regarding the woman’s disappearance begin to arise...

Ha Hui-ra, “This is my first time acting opposite a younger co-star.”

Source: MBC AMERICA :: Global News


Already into the 29th year of her acting career, well-known actress Ha Hui-ra confessed that this upcoming drama will be the first time she's acting opposite a younger man.

In the new daily drama [serve Me!] (script by Seo Young-myeong, directed by Lee Dae-young and Lee Sang-yeop), Ha Hui-ra takes on the role of Young-ran, a normal housewife whose life is turned upside down when she finds out her husband is having an affair. Her husband is played by actor Kim Seong-min.

Ha Hui-ra has high expectations for her co-star Kim Seong-min, who is 5 years younger in real life. "I met him for the first time through this drama, and he has a great personality. We're going to get along great. And this is the first time I'm acting opposite a younger man since my debut. He may be younger, but he's actually very meticulous and looks after me well, so I think he'll be helping me out."

[serve Me!], airing May 25th, is taking over the timeslot of the soon ending [Don't Cry My Love]. It will honestly portray the lives of three very distinct sisters, as well as the ups and downs of their respective marriages.

It will be directed by Lee Dae-young, [be Strong, Geum-soon] [bad Woman, Good Woman], and scripted by Seo Young-myeong, [i'm Afraid of her] [My Precious Child]. Already the expectations are high because two great names in the sphere of the daily drama are getting together to bring a new project to the table.

Regarding the high expectation, Ha Hui-ra took on a positive mindset. "We're filming amidst a lot of positive anxiety and excitement because we're working with such big names. Actors shouldn't get swept up in a lot of talk. This is a good kind of excitement and a kind of anxiety we need."

She then cautiously spoke of her expectations, "The actors of this project are all great, and I get along great with the staff. I've noticed that when the first impression is good, the project ends to do well. This belief hasn't failed me yet, and I got a good first impression from this project. I think it will do well."

She added that her first priority is her acting, "The first thing an actor should think about is how much he/she can enjoy taking part in the project. If the ratings come out well, then that's just the cherry on top."

She hopes for a lot of attention and encouragement for the drama. "Daily dramas are a reflection of life. Everyone deals with a different kind of pain, and [serve Me!] isn't going to present this in an ordinary fashion. So please look forward to the drama."

[serve Me!] will start off observing the ups and downs of the marriages of the three sisters, and then it will delve into possible paths to happiness for its characters. This new daily drama will start airing on May 25th.

[serve Me!] Kim Seong-min's third daily drama! He wants to be remembered as "Seon-wu"!

MBC's newest daily drama [serve Me!] (script by Seo Young-myeong, directed by Lee Dae-young & Lee Sang-yeop) stars Kim Seong-min as Jeong Seon-wu, a reserved husband. Kim revealed his ambitions for the show before it beings airing.

Kim Seong-min debuted successfully as the upstanding, gentle reporter Ju-wang in the drama [Miss Mermaid] and went on to be Mu-bin, a man faithful in love, in the drama [Lotus Flower Fairy]. Now in his third daily drama, he will become Seon-wu, a reserved and curt husband.

Since his previous two daily dramas were so successful, we asked him if he felt a lot of pressure with the upcoming project. He answered, "I'm going to be working with a lot of more experienced, veteran actors in this project. When they stride forward, I'm going to be taking one step at a time in order to match their stride. Rather than shoulder the weight of responsibility, I'm going to try and really become the character Seon-wu so that his name is remembered by the viewers, instead of 'Ju-wang' or 'Mu-bin.'"

Kim joined the cast of [serve Me!] not long after his last drama [Family's Honor] came to an end, and it would certainly be no surprise if he were tired. But he showed his passion for acting when he replied, "You know what? When you're doing something that you love, you never get tired."

Kim Seong-min takes the role of Jeong Seon-wu in [serve Me!]. He's married to Young-ran (Ha Hui-ra) and owns and operates a health food company. He begins to stray off the path when he reunites with an old lover (Choi Soo Rin), the girl he broke up with due to his mother's insistence.

When asked about the character, Kim explained, "Seon-wu is successful in the public sphere. [...] And when he reunites with his old lover, he swears to love her enough to make up for all the lost time. The development of this is something the viewers can look forward to."

This is the first time he's working with Ha Hui-ra, who stars as his wife. Regarding her, he said, "She's exactly as she is portrayed on TV. She's older than me, but I think we'll get along well and I'm really looking forward to it."

Though this is his third daily drama with MBC, Kim says that the times are always changing and he first needs to adjust. You can catch his excellent performance on the new daily drama [serve Me!] on May 25th!

Guest C51236

thanks dramaluv3r101 for keeping the thread up to date. So this drama is kinda like Queen of Housewives? 3 couples and their marriages. HHR-KSM couple will have marital problems due to KSM's character, Jung Sun Woo, cheating w/ a first love? (kinda like Dal Soo and Eun Hyun except DS didnt really return EH's feelings?) only difference is it's about three sister's marriages? well they both are MBC productions so i guess MBC is trying to keep up the success following QOH?

cast looks solid. they seem to get along w/ each other. here's two other press con pics!

Ha Hee Ra and her "younger man" Kim Sung Min

It's just the first episode and KSM's character is already experiencing memory lapses about where his bed is! I hope his wife uses a frying pan to restore those missing brain cells. B)

[What's For Dinner?] First episode off to a smooth start with double digit ratings!

Source: MBC America

MBC's new daily drama [What's For Dinner?] met with a great start as it earned double digit ratings with its first episode.

According to TNS Media Korea, the first episode of [What's For Dinner?] that aired on May 25th brought in a rating of 10.1%.

Its predecessor [Don't Cry My Love] had the highest ratings among daily dramas as it came to a close, but its first episode had scored only 7.9%. This shows that [What's For Dinner?] is off to a better and more stable start.

The first episode drew out the marriages of three sisters, led our heroine Young-ran (Ha Hui-ra). There's Young-ran who leads a somewhat uneventful and dry marriage life with reticent husband Seon-wu (Kim Seong-min), the cute and slightly dense Young-shim (Kim Hye-seon) who is envious of Young-ran's more affluent lifestyle and has a perfect match in her husband Do-shik (Kim Byeong-se), and the bright and capable youngest Young-mi (Oh Yun-ah) who lives with her in-laws. The first episode quickly established these distinctive characters as well as their relationships.

In the second episode (aired May 26th), Seon-wu comes home late on their wedding anniversary and demands dinner, to which Young-ran finally explodes and releases her pent-up feelings. Meanwhile, Young-mi has a disagreement with her mama's boy husband Yun-su (Ha Seok-jin) and leaves him behind as she drives off.
