Kim Seong-min to come back for the first time in 2 years
To s tar in the JTBC drama "Can We Get Married??" Actor Kim Seong-min who has been on the low for the past few years for accusations of being involved with drugs, is coming back. He is going to s tar in the upcoming JTBC drama "Can We Get Married??" along with Lee Mi-sook, Choi Hwa-jeong, Jeong Ae-yeon, Kim Jin-soo and more.
Kim Seong-min is coming back for the first time in 2 years. He was on probation for the charges of smuggling in methamphetamine from the Philippines in 2010 and spent his time doing community work and reflecting on himself. He appeared in the musical "Sound of Music" and movie "The Weight" some time after that. He recently starred in the movie "Soundless Man" and opened a store in a great big shopping mall in Ansan.
Kim Seong-min is said to have realized his mistake and will carefully and slowly make his way back in front of the public".
Lee Mi-sook turns into a fierce mom (again) for cable drama
Cable channel JTBC is readying a new drama, and Lee Mi-sook (Love Rain, Cinderella’s Sister) is the first star to be attached. The drama is titled Could We Marry (literally, it’s like asking “Will we be able to marry?” but that has a clunkier ring to it, as far as titles go), and, naturally, is themed around weddings and marriage.
That sounds generic, I know, but there’s room in there for some heartfelt and meaty character stuff: the drama will follow the marriage stories of four couples. For instance, one story thread features a bride-to-be with 100 days till her wedding, full of family interactions and wedding preparation details. The show touts the message that preparing for a wedding is not the same as preparing for a marriage and a lifetime of living together, which seems like an obvious statement but could make for nice themed storylines. I say this one’s all going to hinge on execution, and at least JTBC has a solid track record in that regard.
Lee Mi-sook plays a strong, meddling mother with daughters to marry off, which makes me think she’s reprising her role from Thousand Day Promise. Which could be a good thing; she was a hoot in it, and often the sole comic relief in an otherwise dreary story. Lee does sharp and biting in the funniest way, and that makes her more absurd than unlikable since the outrageousness is the point.
In this drama, her character owns a cosmetics store and raises her two daughters on her own. Mom considers money the most valuable thing in the world — which makes her single-minded in the pursuit of prospective son-in-laws. Her own marriage experience was unhappy, so she’s set on making sure it’s different for her children. An admirable prospect, for certain, though you wonder if she’s living vicariously through them to right that wrong, which is less admirable.
She marries off the elder daughter to a doctor, then turns her attention to the younger. Only to have the daughter reveal that she wants to marry an ordinary salaryman. Gasp! Conflict ensues.
Could We Marry will premiere in October.
This drama looks really good! But I wonder if it will have a lot of episodes like You are My Destiny, which has like over 150 episodes.
Living in Korea now, woohoo!
