After Choi Ji Woo hit a sweet spot with cable in tvN drama Second Time Twenty Again, two more forty and over are heading to cable and also doing the pre-produced format. Kim Hee Sun and Kim Sun Ah are in talks for jTBC drama Classy Her (or Her with Class), making it not just female lead centric but also doubling down on it. It would make the return for both actresses after just a year, with Kim Hee Sun doing MBC drama Angry Mom and Kim Sun Ah did Masked Prosecutor on KBS. Hopefully the story will do both ladies justice and make it fun to combine two early Hallyu leading ladies, and also give them age-appropriate and fun male leads.
Classy Her will have Kim Hee Sun play the rich wife with elegance and class married into a chaebol family who sees her situation plummet once her husband’s family loses their wealth. Kim Sun Ah is a woman from the countryside who aspires and readies herself to marry up by educating herself so that she’s at ease in both class stratas. The drama will start filming in August for a late 2016 or early 2017 airing.
