There’s a teeny update on upcoming KBS drama Oh My God, a title for me that now conjures up connections to the recently finished Oh My Ghost on tvN, what with the exclamation and the exact same initials. Oh My Ghost was a solid hit for tvN so there are worse dramas for Oh My God to be coincidentally associated with. KBS has long gotten A-list actors So Ji Sub and Shin Mina onboard Oh My God despite the project not having a set slot on the network drama schedule.
There was conflicting news today – first came confirmation that Oh My God was going to air on Mon-Tues on KBS starting in December after the cheerleading school drama starring Kim Yoo Jung, followed by the network backpedaling and saying it was only considering On My God for the Mon-Tues slot. Initially I had heard the drama was being eyed for Wed-Thurs, which right now is lined up out into December, with Innkeeper 2015 airing after the political drama Assembly. I think Wed-Thurs feels like a better bet since Mon-Tues in December will see long dramas on SBS with Six Flying Dragons as well as MBC with Glamorous Temptation.
I still think it so random to cast So Ji Sub and Shin Mina as a couple who meets and falls in love while losing weight together. Like, what? They don’t even look plausibly realistic as fat adults even in a fat suit, both have such lean lithe figures. With that said, they are so charming to watch onscreen in the right roles, and their Giordano CF couplings prove without a doubt that chemistry is potent between them. I guess watching them lose weight does create tons of interesting scenarios to fall in love. I hope KBS locks down the time slot for certain soon, it would be such a disappointment if one or either were to bail in this drama for whatever reason.
