Any longer before announcing his post-MS comeback project and Jae Hee was about to turn into Won Bin v.2, which is not a bad thing, mind you, just makes his fans long suffering between projects. Thankfully, the uber-talented Jae Hee, after completing his military service over a year ago, has just been cast as the leading man in the upcoming weekend drama The Woman Who Never Loses, co-starring Lee Bo Young. This drama is slated to air on MBC following Can You Hear My Heart. I’m sure this news makes Jae Hee’s many fans exceedingly happy.
The drama will be about a divorced woman who re-discovers life after her marriage ends, and if it follows the typical weekend drama patterns, will be family-oriented and be about the heroine overcoming obstacles in a heartwarming fashion. I’m simply too busy on weekends to watch dramas, and rarely follow a weekend drama unless it completely calls out to me. I like both Lee Bo Young and Jae Hee, so I’ll definitely check this out when it premieres in July.
Jae Hee was released from MS the same day as Jo Hyun Jae, and I’m hoping Jo Hyun Jae’s great luck in picking projects (49 Days) also happens to Jae Hee. The drama will be helmed by PD Joo Sung Woo, who directed Goldfish and Chun Ja’s Happy Events, and written by Park Hyun Joo, who did My Precious You and Golden Bride.
