UEE’s “Birdie Buddy” drama moves to MBC


Drama “Birdie Buddy“, which stars After School’s UEE, will be moved to MBC.

According to production company Group Eight, “Birdie Buddy” will be broadcast by MBC as the follow-up to their Monday/Tuesday drama, “Queen of Reversals.”

A representative stated, “‘Birdie Buddy’ has been moved to MBC as the follow-up for ‘Queen of Reversals.’ However, there’s a chance that ‘Queen of Reversals’ may be extended, so we’ve pushed the broadcast date for ‘Birdie Buddy’ to late December or early January. If everything goes according to schedule, ‘Queen of Reversals’ will end on December 21st and ‘Birdie Buddy’ can broadcast on the 27th.”

He went on to state, “The drama consists of 20 total episodes. MBC will further discussions on the number of broadcasts and other details.”

“Birdie Buddy” is a drama remake of Korea’s first golf comic, “Birdie”. UEE will portray a positive, country girl named ‘Sung Mi Su’ that becomes a rookie golfer.

Stay tuned to allkpop for future updates!

Bye Bye, Birdie Buddy


Well, that was anticlimactic. After months of delays and shuffling around on the broadcast schedule, MBC has decided to drop Birdie Buddy from its upcoming lineup after all, which means that the golf drama that was to be singer UEE’s first leading role is no more.

A source from MBC’s drama department stated that while they had agreed to air Birdie Buddy following Queen of Reversals, the drama didn’t pass muster in meetings with the outside production company subcommittee. (At MBC, all programs produced by an outside production company must be approved by their committee before being allowed to air.) The reason was not divulged.

Birdie Buddy had been intended to air earlier this year, but failed to find a slot on the summer schedule. Then it managed to secure a place in the March 2011 lineup, which was then bumped up — a good sign — to December before the committee decided to drop it.

The reason now becomes clear for MBC’s decision to grant Queen of Reversals an extension, which had puzzled me initially because the drama certainly doesn’t call for one with its storyline or its tepid ratings performance. However, MBC seems to be putting a lot of eggs into their shiny new basket called 짝패, which translates to The Duo, the fusion sageuk series reportedly considering Chun Jung-myung in the lead. That drama has been running behind in pre-production, so MBC had wanted to fill the post-Reversals slot with a drama that is currently already well into filming. That was Birdie Buddy, until it wasn’t.

Poor Uee, I heard she missed a lot of After School activities to film this drama.

It was all a waste.

Still cuts revealed of UEE’s golf drama, “Birdie Buddy”




“Birdie Buddy,” a drama that’s been headlining for some time now because it stars After School’s UEE, will finally be unveiling itself this week! On March 16th, Group 8, the drama’s production company, released still cuts of the drama and revealed that the teaser will be released through YouTube on March 18th.

Producers of the drama stated, “For the past year in production, both producers and cast members alike have worked without end to make sure that the drama is as perfect as it can be.”

The drama began filming back in March of 2010 and centers around a story of a country girl, ‘Sung Misu’, who hopes to become a pro golfer despite the difficult financial situation she grows up. UEE revealed, “Being the lead role was pressuring, but I worked harder than anyone else in order to become closer with ‘Sung Misu.’ For the past year, I’ve lived life not as UEE, but as ‘Sung Misu.’”

She continued with tears in her eyes, “All there is left is to meet the viewers now.” [/red

UEE’s “Birdie Buddy” to finally start airing through tvN this August


After School’s UEE seems to have finally shed her ‘curse’. Her golf-themed drama, “Birdie Buddy“, was recently picked up by cable channel tvN after being left on the back-burner for months.

Since UEE was also cast in the upcoming KBS drama, “Golden Pond“, it looks like the summer is certainly picking up for the star. ”Birdie Buddy” had been the source of much trouble for her throughout the year, so both fans and industry representatives are relieved to hear the positive news.

A representative of “Birdie Buddy” confirmed, “Everyone made it seem like it was UEE’s fault that the drama couldn’t be picked up by a network, so we were all very upset. It reached a point where people even started calling it ‘the curse of UEE’. Now that it’s been picked up, I’m sure UEE will be able to shed one less weight off of her shoulders.”

He continued, “Because of contracts and other issues, the drama had to air within the year. Our goal was to air it in the summer, so although we’re a year behind, we’re glad that it’ll still be greeting viewers.”

“Birdie Buddy” will begin airing through tvN in mid-August.

Really slow slow drama, had to fast forward most of it, especially the parts about MHR, i named her misery, and didnt find anything interesting about her or her story, any way the ending put me OFF entirely. Rotten work writers. Although I loved the little MS as well as the older version, her cheerful and sunny personality was the only reason to watch the drama.
