Yay a thread for Cheer Up, Mr. Kim!  Thanks for making a thread, bookmarked it already.
I will see Dongwan on tv, so happy.  Never watch Moon and Stars for You because the time conflict with my schedule but I hope I can make some time for this. 
This is a daily drama, DW will be very busy...  
Didn't Wang Ji Hye usually play the antagonist role? but she's funny in Protect the Boss.

@endeavor @Hannahmiriam : Ooo I see! I haven't watched Bachelor's Vegetable Store so I didn't know that, thanks for info :)  
The guardian of four children --- omg it can be cute but also can be a disaster for Kim Taepyung !  ;))
I'll be watching on KBSWorld too, so it will be later but I can't wait. The anticipation is killing me, I'll be visiting this thread for updates. Hopefully the viewers will love this drama :)

I hope the story line is good because daily dramas sometimes were dragged too long.

Not to mention having kids, the flower bachelor in his early thirties is nowhere close to marriage, yet he has 4 kids who stick to him like gum. This atypical family is the centre of the upcoming KBS1 drama ‘Cheer Up Mister Kim’, which has just started principal filming, and Kim Dongwan has generated interest for his transformation into a ‘bachelor mom’ for the titular character.

KBS released photos from the first outdoor filming session of the upcoming daily drama on 9th October, and in the photos Kim Dongwan was all smiles as he tackled the role of ‘Mister Kim’ Kim Tae-pyeong – the passionate and chatty bachelor mom-cum-housekeeper extraordinaire.

The first filming session, which took place last weekend at Seongbuk-dong, featured protagonist Tae-pyeong with his two adopted daughters Hee-rae (played by Seo Ji-hee) and Song-ah (played by Noh Jung-ui).

Child actress Seo Ji-hee, who was the envy of many for playing Hyun Bin’s niece in ‘My Name Is Kim Sam Soon’, made an impression in last year’s “Moon That Embraces The Sun” and now takes on the role of Tae-pyeong’s niece whose family has just broken up.


Kim Dongwan clearly enjoyed interacting with his two cute onscreen daughters – maybe even more so than with any other actress – and kept smiling throughout the shoot. Thirty-something bachelor Kim Dongwan had the expression of a father, more so than an uncle, and to the producers, he has already made the grade for his successful transformation into the titular ‘Mister Kim’.

‘Cheer Up Mister Kim’ also stars ‘Protect The Boss’ and ‘Friends’ actress Wang Ji-hye in the role of physical education teacher Woo-kyung; veteran actress Kim Hye-seon in the role of Tae-pyung’s heartless birth mother Hong Hae-sook; and veteran actor Lee Jung-gil who plays her husband. Veteran actor Baek Il-seob plays the role of Jeon Kyung-sul, retired social worker and mentor to Tae-pyung. Rounding out the supporting cast are Choi Il-hwa, Sa Mi-ja and Jung Jae-soon.

Meanwhle, helming the production of ‘Cheer Up Mister Kim’ is director Hong Seok-gu, whose previous projects include ‘Mary Stayed Out All Night’, drama special ‘Red Candy’ and ‘Hometown Legends’, with scriptwriter Jo Jeong-joo who has penned ‘The Princess’ Man’. The first episode airs on 5th November.

Haha yes I think we can counting on that, just like when they did with Yeongasi! Maybe they can do parody with the rest of the members acting as the children heheh
When I read 'children' in the synopsis, I thought of the 4,5 year old children like in ShinBang :P

Dongwan mentioned the drama a bit in the interview for his fans meeting : 

@3:35 - He says that his drama doesn’t have the usual ‘makjang’ elements (basically, extremely emotional and overdramatic elements that are very prevalent in Korean dramas).  He says that it’ll be a 6-month long family drama that will provide loving, touching, and fun moments.

Looks like he is. Google translate said rivalry to Wan, haha.
Looks good, doesn't he?  There are not many casts that I know for the drama but that's fine, I'll learn about them little by little.  I guess many people may not know Dongwan as well. 
@takugoro : is that Kim Myungmin in your avatar/sig?
