Yoon Shi Yoon, Bae Da Bin, Park In Hwan, Seo Bum June, Choi Ye Bin, And More Join Forces In Script Reading For KBS Weekend Drama

Rest of article

KBS has shared the photos from the first script reading of its upcoming weekend drama, “Hyun Jae Is Beautiful” (literal translation)!


“Hyun Jae Is Beautiful” is about the three Lee brothers, who grew up as part of a generation that avoids dating and marriage. Their parents and grandfather scheme to get them married off by offering their valuable apartment to the brother who can bring home a spouse first.


The first script reading took place in November 2021 at the KBS office in Yeouido. In attendance were producing director (PD) Kim Sung Geun, writer Ha Myung Hee, and cast members Yoon Shi Yoon, Bae Da Bin, Oh Min Seok, Shin Dong Mi, Seo Bum June, Choi Ye Bin, Park In Hwan, Park Sang Won, Kim Hye Ok, Ban Hyo Jung, Park Ji Young, Byun Woo Min, Kim Kang Min, Sunwoo Yong Nyeo, Jung Heung Chae, Kim Ye Ryung, Cha Yeob, Hyun Jyoo Ni, and more.



Yoon Shi Yoon stars as the middle Lee brother, Lee Hyun Jae, who is a divorce lawyer. Bae Da Bin stars as Hyun Mi Rae, his client, who is seeking an annulment after getting caught up in a marriage fraud scheme. Although the two start out with a strictly business relationship, their own feelings keep hinting at something more.


Oh Min Seok stars as the eldest Lee brother, Lee Yoon Jae, who is a dentist. Shin Dong Mi co-stars as Shim Hae Joon, a lawyer. The two characters share a lovable back-and-forth relationship. Seo Bum June stars as the youngest Lee brother, Lee Soo Jae, who is preparing for the civil service exam. Choi Ye Bin co-stars as Na Yoo Na, who is preparing to enter the workforce. As the youngest couple on the show, they have a cute chemistry that earns the adoration of the adults around them.




Park In Hwan stars as Lee Kyung Chul, the patriarch of the Lee family. Sunwoo Yong Nyeo plays Lee Kyung Soon, his sister. Comically, the two are on such good terms that they’re often mistaken for husband and wife. Park Sang Won plays Lee Min Ho, Lee Kyung Chul’s adopted son and the father of the Lee brothers, and Kim Hye Ok plays Han Kyung Ae, his wife. Byun Woo Min and Park Ji Young play Hyun Jin Heon and Jin Soo Jung, Hyun Mi Rae’s parents.




At the end of the script reading, Park Sang Won spoke on behalf of the cast, saying, “‘Hyun Jae Is Beautiful’ is a traditional weekend drama of the kind that’s hard to see nowadays. It will be relatable to the viewers because it deals with themes like filial piety, which our society needs, family love, and marriage.”


The production staff stated, “When we were all gathered in the same place, we were able to create that boisterous atmosphere that is characteristic of family dramas. The actors’ immersion into their roles brought life to Ha Myung Hee’s honest and straightforward script. We will continue this great atmosphere on set as well and prepare a heartwarming and entertaining drama.”




“Hyun Jae Is Beautiful” will premiere after the end of “Young Lady and Gentleman” in April.
