  • Lee Dong-wook (Bad and Crazy) is on the casting table for A Good Man (roughly translated), a heartwarming comedy that follows the ups and downs of a man who is just trying to take care of his family, job, and the love of his life. The one tiny little problem is that he’s also the heir to a family of mobsters, dating back three generations. With scripts by Kim Woon-kyung (Yoo-na’s Street) and filmmaker Song Hae-sung (Boomerang Family) at the helm, filming is scheduled to start early next year once casting has been finalized. [YTN]

No news about this drama. I think they will start filming in early 2024.

 

I wonder If the love interest for the protagonist will have an important role in this drama. I hope there are other casting news because we`ll find out more informations about the relationships of the main characters.
I just looked at the writer`s past dramas. He doesn`t seam to use the actors from previous works like other writers or directors but who knows... I just wish someone close in age with Lee dong Wook.  We`ll see who they cast for the female lead.

 

We also did not know for sure if Yoo Jae Myung and Jo Woo Jin will appear in it after all. The news article about their cast was removed.
