Oh momma, this better be true!
A Lee Kyung Hee script + 2 talented and charming actors? I SO WANT! I love love love Lee Kyung Hee. Tho I’ve had some gripes with her writing in recent years (her latest When It Snows For Christmas), it doesn’t change the fact that she’s a writer who writes with passion and heart, and had penned several of my favourite melodramas in the past (MISA, Thank You and Sang Doo). She tends to overdo the melodrama and histrionics, and glosses on the deluge of tears a bit too much. But knowing the crybaby and rabid emotional-freak I am, I’m going to be perfectly fine being the complaisant lil fan of hers. Drama tears and all, bring it ON!
News reports today mentioned that Song Joong Ki has already confirmed his participation in the drama titled “A Good Man / A Kind Man“, while Moon Chae Won is in talks, this close to closing the deal. I for one, pray so hard that this will come to realisation. It MUST. Cos seriously, this is a heavenly OTP waiting to happen. You’ve got the talented SJK who has been utterly underused (all these years) until his recent stint in Tree With Deep Roots, together with Best Actress MCW who just came off a hot and souring success that was of TPM. I really can’t ask for a more perfect casting.
A Good Man is scheduled to air on KBS in August right after Bridal Mask (omo, after Joo Won we get SJK?!!!) and production will be under the helm of IHQ. No director/PD has been secured yet, but a potential Kim Jin Won (Ordinary Love) has expressed great interest. A gist of the rumored plot has also been circulating online, which will get fans of both actors reeling from excitement for a bit until things are set and confirmed on paper.
SJK will play a character who intends to exact revenge on an ex-girlfriend who betrayed him and left him for an older man. If MCW is confirmed to be on board, she will play the daughter of that old man, whom SJK’s character will be using and manipulating to carry out his revenge. And… go figure out the rest. Other sources say that the girl will have amnesia, or is blind, but so far no concrete info on that yet. So yeap, you have a combo of MISA + IJUKSA here. Very much a typical revenge story with a dash of romance and melodrama. But SJK playing vindictive and revengeful guy? Ooooohhhh, I can’t wait to see that.
I hope IHQ manages to find a good and solid PD to do this. The last thing you need is a brainwrecked and short sighted PD who lacks what it takes to convey Lee’s story. Perhaps someone like Mawang or Alone In Love’s PD? *I’m asking for the impossible here* Anyways, more than anything, I’m most looking forward to the writer-actor combo. And truly earnestly sincerely hope it won’t falter or disappoint (like Equator Man or Rooftoop Prince – MEH).
Last but not least, have a lil of SJK’s best pal Yoo Ah In hamming up the cute with his to-be co-star in their latest Soju CF:
