I was quite disappointed with Masked Prosecutor's writing and directing.  I do hope KSA picks a good drama next. And soon.  Both her and Joo Sang Wook's talent were wasted in MP.

Kim Hee-sun up to join Kim Sun-ah in Woman of Dignity

by girlfriday | June 23, 2016 

Kim Hee-sun (Angry Mom) and Kim Sun-ah (Masked Prosecutor), together in one drama? I love both actresses, but doesn’t that seem like one leading lady too many? Kim Hee-sun is reportedly considering the leading role in the new series Woman of Dignity, which is the part that Kim Sun-ah was originally said to be considering. But producers are apparently courting Kim Sun-ah for a different role, and the two actresses are in consideration to be co-stars. Well, they did say it was a drama about ajummas, so maybe it’ll be the female version of A Gentleman’s Dignity and they can get a whole posse of girlfriends then?

The new drama comes from My Name Is Kim Sam-soon PD Kim Yoon-chul (also of JTBC dramas Madam Antoine, Could We Love, Can We Get Married) and writer Baek Mi-kyung of JTBC’s thoughtful melodrama Beloved Eun-dong, and tells the story of a woman’s riches-to-rags journey of self-discovery. Kim Hee-sun is up for the main role, an extremely beautiful woman who was once a flight attendant and the model for her airline. At twenty-eight she married into a wealthy family and has since enjoyed a life of luxury. But when her in-laws’ family goes under and her husband betrays her, she loses her prestige and hits rock bottom, and the drama is about her personal growth as she raises herself back up.


Kim Sun-ah is up for a character with a thick Chungcheong-do accent who really wants to be a part of high society. She bulks up on her learning in order to do so, and is described as a three-dimensional character with a lot of different sides to her. That’s a bit vague, but it sounds like Kim Sun-ah and Kim Hee-sun will be playing characters from opposite sides of the tracks, who meet somewhere in the middle.

The drama plans to explore contemporary women’s lives, particularly middle-aged women, and the ajumma’s position in society. I can see this type of drama doing really well, especially if they can actually make it relatable and realistic about the everyday struggles women face. It’s interesting that Kim Sun-ah is looking at a secondary character, but there must be something about the role that stands out. I’m sure that a reunion with the director of her beloved rom-com classic My Name Is Kim Sam-soon has a lot to do with it. I do want to see both Kims back in dramaland soon, so maybe we’ll kill two birds with one stone and get them to come back in the same project.

Woman of Dignity plans to start shooting in August for a broadcast early next year. No broadcaster is attached yet.

Kim Sun-ah and Kim Hee-sun cross paths and fates in Woman of Dignity

by tipsymocha



We’ve got a little over a month left until we get to see Woman of Dignity take over Man to Man, and JTBC has just released the first teaser for the woman-centric show. I remember reading earlier reports that this drama is supposed to be a satirical human comedy, but the teaser presents itself as more on the thriller side of the genre spectrum.

We see glimpses of our two leading ladies: Kim Hee-sun (Angry Mom) looks every bit the posh, Cheongdam-dong daughter-in-law she plays, while Kim Sun-ah (Masked Prosecutor) starts out as the woman from the countryside, with average clothing that is quickly replaced by a fancy fur coat and sparkly jewelry. There’s a charged scene of the two ladies crossing paths, Kim Hee-sun in a chauffeured car, and a dowdy Kim Sun-ah walking the pavement. Oh, the symbolism. It’s not hard to see why Kim Sun-ah’s Park Bok-ja character is jealous of Kim Hee-sun’s Woo Ah-jin: On the surface, Woo Ah-jin’s life is all glitter and rainbows, but we’ll see her life falling apart as her in-laws lose their fortune, she gets kicked out, and she finds her husband cheating on her.

I’m not sure whether Park Bok-ja will have anything to do with Ah-jin’s sudden misfortunes, but this teaser certainly seems to imply some antagonism between the leading ladies. There’s a really creepy moment when Kim Hee-sun is staring straight at the camera, and a disembodied hand slinks over her shoulder while we see Kim Sun-ah in the distance moving her arm behind a mirror. I don’t know about you, but I certainly wasn’t expecting unattached limbs moving about in this teaser, so that gave me the heebie-jeebies.

We finish the teaser with Kim Sun-ah closing the curtains shut behind a window, and the two ladies facing each other. This teaser was certainly stylish, but the tone was unexpectedly dark, so it will be interesting to see whether the show itself follows suit, or if this teaser is just an anomaly.

Woman of Dignity will follow Man to Man in the Friday-Saturday slot over on JTBC, and is scheduled to premiere on June 16.

As of this moment, she is still in discussions for the lead role. No info on who is the male lead.


One of the articles:


[단독] 김선아, 차기작은 '붉은달 푸른해'…6년만 MBC 복귀

[BREAKING] Kim Suna, in discussions for next work 'Red Moon Blue Sea' ... MBC return after 6 years




배우 김선아가 차기작으로 '붉은달 푸른해'를 택했다. 
Actor Kim Sun-ah is considering 'Red Moon Blue Sea' as her next project.


한 드라마국 관계자는 23일 일간스포츠에 "김선아가 MBC 새 수목극 '붉은달 푸른해' 주인공으로 나선다"고 전했다. 이 작품은 현재 방영 중인 '시간'의 후속작 '내 뒤에 테리우스' 방영 이후 만나볼 수 있다. 

A drama official said on the 23rd (of August), "Kim Sun-a was offered the lead protagonist role in MBC's new Wednesday-Thursday drama "Red Moon Blue Sea". This work can be seen after the airing of "Terius behind me", which will follow "Time" which is currently on air.


'붉은달 푸른해'는 인생을 송두리째 바꾸기에는 너무나 짧은 순간 겪은 사고로 인해 시작, 여러 사건과 마주하며 진실을 파헤치는 과정을 담아낸다. 
"Red Moon Blue Sea" starts with an accident that is too short (or fast?) to be avoided, and it brings up the process of encountering various events and digging the truth.


김선아는 극 중 차우경 역으로 분한다. 만족스런 직장, 자상하고 능력 있는 남편, 다정다감한 딸, 곧 태어날 둘째까지 행복의 절정이던 중 큰 사건에 휘말리며 견고한 삶의 균열을 맞는다. 이 과정이 16부(중간 광고 포함 32부)에 촘촘하게 채워지며 극의 긴장감을 전해줄 예정이다.

Kim Sun-ah is offered the role of "Cha Woo-kyung". She has a stable job, a caring and capable husband, and a sweethearted daughter, and what happened next on her is the culminating moment of a life that is at the peak of happiness and a solid life. It will have 16 episodes (32 episodes including the mid-airing commercials) filled with tension and emotion.


SBS '키스 먼저 할까요?' 종영 이후 7개월 만에 안방극장으로 돌아온다. MBC에는 2012년 방영된 '아이두 아이두' 이후 6년 만이다. 열일 행보를 걷고 있는 김선아가 '붉은달 푸른해'로 어떠한 연기 변신을 보여줄지 기대감을 높인다. 

If she accepts, this will be her comeback after "Should we kiss first?" on SBS seven months ago. This will also be her comeback on MBC after "I do I do" six years ago. People will anticipate what kind of transformation she will show with "Red Moon Blue Sea".


드라마 '마의' '투윅스' '트라이앵글' '화정' 등을 연출한 최정규 PD가 메가폰을 잡는다. '마을-아치아라의 비밀' '사랑도 돈이 되나요' '케세라세라' '늪' 등을 쓴 도현정 작가가 집필한다. 11월 첫 방송. 

The drama is directed by PD Choi Jung-kyu ("The King's Doctor", "Two Weeks", "Triangle", "Splendid politics" - all aired by MBC). Screenplay will be provided by Do Hyun-jung (SBS "The Village: Achiara's Secret", MBN "Can love become money", MBC "Que sera sera" and "Best Theater Presents: Swamp"). It is scheduled to air in November.

Apparently, the drama being offered to her is produced by the soon-to-be-launched production company under Kakao. The writer is under that production company.



M 품은 카카오, 멜론·콘텐츠로 쌍두마차 시동

업계 "카카오톡-멜론, 강한 결합의 서비스 기대"


After merging with (Kakao) M,  Kakao now two-headed with Melon (and) contents

Industry "KakaoTalk-melon (synergy), strong expectation of service"


아울러 카카오는 이번 합병 시 카카오M에서 멜론 사업부와 한솥밥을 먹던 영상 사업 부문과 음악 사업 부문도 함께 가져왔지만, 연내로 이 두 사업을 따로 분사시켜 각을 세운다. 카카오는 또 자사 드라마 제작사 메가몬스터가 제작한 드라마를 4분기 중으로 MBC에서 방영할 예정이다.

In addition, Kakao also brought together the video and music business divisions of Kakao M, which had been involved with the melon division at the time of the merger. Kakao also plans to broadcast the drama produced by its own drama production company Mega Monster in MBC during the fourth quarter.



카카오 관계자는 “메가몬스터가 제작한 드라마를 4분기에 MBC에서 방영할 예정”이라며 “합병이나 분사에도 사업은 연속성이 있게 유지된다”고 밝혔다.

"The drama produced by Mega Monster will be broadcast on MBC in the fourth quarter," a Kakao official said. "It was not affected by the merger (of Kakao and Kakao M)."


음악·영상 사업, 분사에도 연결성 있게…4분기 MBC서 드라마 발표

Music, video business to merge into one ... 4th quarter MBC drama presentation


카카오는 연내 음악·영상 사업 부문을 분사할 예정이다. 카카오는 해당 부문 분사에도 차질 없이 사업을 이어간다는 계획이다. 특히 드라마 제작사 메가몬스터에서 제작한 드라마를 4분기 중 MBC를 통해 공개할 예정이다.

Kakao plans to spin off its music and video business (as an independent subsidiary) during the year. It is planning to continue business without any problem. In particular, the drama produced by the drama production company Mega Monster will be released through MBC during the fourth quarter.


카카오는 영상 콘텐츠 제작사로는 모바일 영상에 특화된 ‘크리스피 스튜디오’와 드라마 전문 제작사 메가몬스터를 두고 있다. 크리스피스튜디오는 모바일에 최적화 된 스낵형 예능 및 웹 드라마 콘텐츠를 제작하는 회사다. 메가몬스터는 CJ ENM의 드라마 제작사 스튜디오드래곤과 공동 투자형태로 탄생한 회사다.

Kakao has 'Krispy Studio' specialized in mobile video contents and 'Mega Monster' that specializes in drama production. Krispy Studio is a company that produces mobile-optimized web entertainment and web-streaming content. Meanwhile, Mega Monster is a company that was co-invested with CJ ENM's drama production company Studio Dragon.
