Jo Bo Ah Surprises Former Co-Star Chae Si Ra With Thoughtful Gift

by E. Cha

Jo Bo Ah prepared a sweet surprise to show her support for former co-star Chae Si Ra!

On March 1, Chae Si Ra took to Instagram to express her gratitude to Jo Bo Ah, who surprised her by sending a personalized coffee truck to the set of her upcoming drama “The Banker.” The two actresses starred together in the MBC drama “Goodbye to Goodbye” last year, and they received a great deal of attention for their chemistry as mother-in-law and daughter-in-law.

In addition to several photos of herself posing happily in front of the coffee truck, Chae Si Ra posted an affectionate message addressed to Jo Bo Ah. The actress wrote, “My Jung Hyo [a reference to Jo Bo Ah’s character from ‘Goodbye to Goodbye’], Bo Ah, surprised me with a gift. She caught me off guard yesterday by unexpectedly sending a coffee truck to the filming set.”

She went on, “It wasn’t just a coffee truck; it was also playing a loop of the commercials that I filmed in my late teens. And Bo Ah also ordered this and that for me, including posters and photos of me. So touching!”

Chae Si Ra concluded, “Thanks to this completely unexpected gift from my beautiful junior actress, who asked us to ‘find strength!’ [a pun on Chae Si Ra’s name that Jo Bo Ah wrote on the coffee truck’s banner], I received thanks from the [drama’s] staff, and we all enjoyed a happy coffee break. Thank you, Bo Ah!”

The Banker released a double life picture of Roh Dae-ho (Kim Sang-jung) on May 5. In the open photo, Roh shows a perfect financial man with gray suit and glasses. In particular, a nameplate written in front of him called 'Thank you Roh Dae-ho' attracts attention. In the dark, there is also a picture of a young man in a crisis under a streetlight. Roh Tae-woo wearing a trench coat is unshakable even in front of sudden black men.



Kim Sang-joong goes after the corporate villains in MBC’s The Banker

by tipsymocha


Trust dramaland to take the most innocuous job ever and somehow make it into a high-stakes thriller. MBC is busy preparing for its next Wednesday-Thursday show, titled The Banker, and has released several stills of its main lead Kim Sang-joong (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People). He’ll be joined by fellow veteran heavyweights Chae Shi-ra (Goodbye to Goodbye) and Yoo Dong-geun (Marry Me Now), as well as promising young talent like Ahn Woo-yeon (Let’s Eat 3), Shin Do-hyun (Dance Sports Girls), and Cha In-ha (Clean With Passion for Now).

Kim Sang-joong will play the titular “banker,” a former small-time branch manager of Daehan Bank with a flailing career, who unexpectedly gets promoted to headquarters as an auditor. He, and other employees in the auditing office, will investigate corporate corruption among various organizations. Which I’m sure ruffles more than a few feathers, judging by the menacing figures cornering our poor hero in a darkly lit alleyway at night. The show is definitely selling the underdog story, pitting a bank employee against corporate giants. But with Kim Sang-joong playing the auditor, it almost feels like a fair fight.

Directing is Lee Jae-jin, whose credits include Woman With a Suitcase and Strange Daughter-in-law. Penning the script will be writers Oh Hye-ran, Bae Sang-wook, and Seo Eun-jung. The writers all seem to be newbies, and only Oh Hye-ran has any credits to her name, though it’s pretty sparse, with one web series and a drama special to her name. The behind-the-scenes crew is a little underwhelming, but I’m hoping that the onscreen talent will more than make up for it.

The Banker will premiere on MBC on March 27, following Spring Must Be Coming.

'The Banker' Yoo Dong-Geun shows a profound charisma as 'Gangsam Do', a bank manager who holds the power of the Bank of Korea.

He has a brother?

I take it you found the brother... :wub:

Kim Tae Hoon gave me 2nd lead syndrome ...

He is so very charming as a romantic 2nd lead.

Actually - both brothers are superb actors, and very charismatic.

The last drama I watched with Kim Tae-woo was Secret Mother. It was very good.

I did, indeed




Often times the 2nd leads are my favs anyway, so he is right in my target then. :D


I think the last show I watched with Kim Tae-woo was 'Black' and I was kinda bummed out that we didn't see him in the last episodes... Oh well, there seems to be plenty more and I will bookmark Secret Mother. B)
