There’s a new weekend drama just around the corner that I’m planning to check out. My Daughter Geum Sa Wol premieres on September 5th on MBC following the conclusion of Flower of the Queen this weekend. I actually check out more weekend dramas than I write about, mostly because I end up running away screaming after just one episode. But on the rare instances that a weekend drama is right up my alley, the most recent being What’s With My Family last year, then I settle in for a comfortable long haul ride.
My Daughter Geum Sa Wol puts rising leading lady Baek Jin Hee front and center as the titular Geum Sa Wol, with Yoon Hyun Min finally getting his leading man screen time, and Park Se Young and Do Sang Woo rounding out the main cast. I like the cast and am curious to see if the screenwriter can repeat the success of her last drama Come! Jang Bori. The synopsis for Geum Sa Wol is rather vague, something about building a dream house and maybe some revenge thrown in, but it’s supposed to be uplifting and follows the leading lady on achieving her dreams. I can handle that, as long as there is no makjang bait and switch, of course. The teaser preview is actually quite cute so check it out.
