Jo Yeo-jung’s Stroke of Good Luck

There’s a new weekend comedy series on the horizon, and SBS has just cast Jo Yeo-jung (I Need Romance) to headline Ji Woon-soo’s Stroke of Good Luck. It’s a drama about an ordinary office employee, Ji Woon-soo (Jo Yeo-jung) who dreams of her life being turned around in a reversal of fortune. So… sort of like Salarywoman, the comic version?

The drama will follow the tenacious Woon-soo, who works hard to earn a living; she possesses an eerie talent for sniffing out money, which probably means she’s gonna be a penny-pinching, bargain-hunting, hilarious almost-ajumma.

She lives with a husband who’s a mere entry-level clerk (Im Chang-jung) and also with her parents. I’m sure that’s not awkward. Hubby’s kind of a loser and dreams of hitting the lotto jackpot, while comic veteran Lee Moon-shik plays a lotto service operator.

It sounds like a cute drama to liven up weekends, and it’s nice to hear of a drama casting months in advance for once, rather than a few weeks before premiere time. On the other hand, its director brought us Lie To Me (the writer penned the 2004 fantasy-action series Tale of the Nine-Tailed Fox), so… I’m not getting too excited just yet.

Ji Woon-soo’s Stroke of Good Luck will air in May.

Seo Yeong-hee leading role in "Stroke Of Luck"

Actress Seo Yeong-hee has been cast in the drama "Stroke of Luck".

Seo Yeong-hee will be taking on the role of Lee Eun-hee, wife to Ji Woon-soo (Im Chang-jeong) in the TV Chosun drama "Stroke of Luck".

Seo Yeong-hee's management revealed, "She was offered a role in the drama "Stroke of Luck" while she was in MBC drama "A Thousand Kisses". We thought hard about it as it was another drama after 6 months of a long weekend drama but it seemed interesting so she decided to go for it".

Initially Jo Yeo-jeong was mentioned for the role of Lee Eun-hee but final conclusions decided on Seo Yeong-hee.

Seo Yeong-hee will take on the role of strong character Lee Eun-hee who saves money for a house of her own and goes through various changes when she gets selected for a lottery.

Seo Yeong-hee and Im Chang-jeong have once before acted together in the 2005 movie "My Lovely Week" as a loving couple and this time they're coming together again with "Stroke of Luck".

Meanwhile, "Stroke of Luck" which is going to be aired on the 4thth of April is about the story of a typical office worker who gets chosen in a lottery.

This’s Im Chang Jung’s first leading drama role in 21 years after 1991’s Eyes of Dawn as he only did movies during that time beside a few cameo roles in some dramas. He’s such a charismatic actor and it’s a treat to watch him plays drama again.

JYJ twin set to make acting debut

Zuno, the elder twin brother of JYJ's Junsu, is set to make his Korean debut as an actor on TV Chosun's "Stroke of Luck".

According to the production company on Thursday, Kim will play the role of Dong-hee, a wannabe singer and brother of the protagonist Ji Woon-soo.

The comedy drama centers on Ji, who wins 12.5 billion won ($10.9 million) but pretends to live in poverty in order to avoid paying for things for his family members and friends.

The drama will begin airing from Saturday. Actor and singer Im Chang-jeong plays the stingy protagonist.

"It's such a privilege and honor to work with such respected actors for my first piece. I think it will be a fun and enjoyable program for all viewers", Kim said.

Although it's the first go at acting in Korea for the 25-year-old entertainer, Kim has been active as a singer in Japan since August last year.

His last single "Believe" reached the third spot on the Oricon chart back in December. He has also made appearances on Japanese dramas.
