Jung Kyeo-woon considers new weekend drama by girlfriday | January 26, 2013 


Casting rounds have begun for the new SBS weekend series Wonderful Mama, set to follow current Saturday-Sunday drama My Love Madame Butterfly. The offer is out to Jung Kyeo-woon to play the leading man. It’s crazy that it’s already been a year since his last show, History of the Salaryman. I guess time flies when you’re messing with the fourth dimension.

You know how dramas always come in pairs? Well Wonderful Mama sounds a lot like upcoming weekend series Incarnation of Money, crossed with a more traditional family drama. This one’s about a mom who’s a loan shark — how’s that for a twist on the usual matriarch of a multi-generational household? Mom is a successful loan shark who gets diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, after which her three daughters have to take over everything, including taking care of Mom and running the family business.

It’d be pretty funny if they didn’t know she was a loan shark, and then discovered it after the fact. I can see it being a heartwarming family drama with lots of light to balance the heavy, if they capitalize on the comedy potential. The daughters haven’t been cast yet, so we’ll have to wait and see who Jung Kyeo-woon’s match will be.

Bae Jong-ok (Hooray for Love) is up to play Mom, and the drama will be helmed by PD Yoon Ryu-hae (I Love You), and writer Park Hyun-joo (Hooray for Love). Wonderful Mama premieres this spring on SBS.

Jung Yumi joins Jung Kyeo-woon in Wonderful Mama by girlfriday | January 29, 2013


Confirmations are in for Jung Kyeo-woon’s new weekend drama Wonderful Mama, and now he has a co-star in Rooftop Prince’s Jung Yumi, who has finally made it out of backstabby second lead territory. She was originally due to star in City Conquest first, but that drama seems dead in the water, at least for now.

Wonderful Mama is about a loan shark mom (Bae Jong-ok), a self-made woman who went from working a tiny market stand to owning multi-million-won buildings. She gets diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, and has to hurry and make her three adult kids grow up before she forgets how to mother them. It’s described as a refreshing and heartwarming family story.

Jung Yumi will play Mom’s eldest daughter, Go Young-chae, a designer and uppity princess who has a short temper and a quick tongue. But she’ll eventually mature and become a warm, optimistic young woman with lots of affection. She meets Jung Kyeo-woon’s character at work when she starts a new job, and they’ll have a contentious workplace romance.

Jung Kyeo-woon will play Jang Hoon-nam (Ha, his name hoon-nam actually means nice guy.), the second son of a family that’s owned a clothing material factory for three generations. He lost his parents at a young age, and grew up taking care of his hearing-impaired older brother. They’re inseparable, and he sounds like the nicest kid brother ever. He’s strict and professional at work, but he’s got a strong sense of responsibility and he starts out trying to get Young-chae to stop being a gold-digging princess, and will eventually fall in love with her. Sounds like lots of potential for cute romance and heartwarming family drama.

The show will be produced by PD Yoon Ryu-hae (I Love You), and writer Park Hyun-joo (Hooray for Love). Wonderful Mama follows My Love Madame Butterfly and premieres in May on SBS.

Lee Chung-ah joins weekend drama Wonderful Mama
by girlfriday | March 4, 2013 | 20 Comments


Lee Chung-ah (Flower Boy Ramyun Shop) has two new projects headed our way. First, she’s joined the cast of the Kim Sun-ah movie The Five, which is shooting now, but won’t hit theaters for a while. And then she also just signed on to upcoming weekend family drama Wonderful Mama, starring Jung Kyeo-woon and Jung Yumi, set to air this spring. Busy girl, but I’m glad to see her back on screens both big and small.

In the drama she’ll play Jung Yumi’s best friend, described as a doormat type, who incites other people’s protective instincts. She’s a sweet, sincere girl who’s also a walking disaster. Oy with this dramaland character type that will not die. She’s disregarded by her husband, and constantly taken advantage of by others, but is lovable and childlike in her innocence. Jung Yumi’s heroine is a rather bratty spoiled princess at the start of the story, which fits the bill for their likely unbalanced friendship. Poor thing. But the heroine will also have a big transformation arc to make her a better person, so hopefully Lee Chung-ah will get one where she grows a backbone and doesn’t let herself get trampled.

Wonderful Mama is, as the title would suggest, a mom-centric family drama. Bae Jong-ok stars as a loan shark mom who gets diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s and hurries to impart every bit of mothering that she can to her three adult children before it’s too late. Jung Yumi is the eldest daughter, and Jung Kyeo-woon plays her love interest. The siblings have yet to be cast.

I’m probably a little more excited for Lee Chung-ah’s part in The Five, seeing as how it’s more of a departure for her. Taking part in a revenge scheme to kill a serial killer — so not your average goody two shoes role. But you have to practically forget about movies and just be pleasantly surprised when they’re released, otherwise playing the waiting game with one is like a masochistic test of patience.

Wonderful Mama follows My Love Madame Butterfly and premieres in May.
