This is one drama casting where I’d keep three out of four choices and ask for a substitute. But since it’s a done deal I’ll still check it out because both male leads are always worth watching. Ji Hyun Woo and Kim Ji Hoon are confirmed for upcoming MBC weekend drama Bad Thief, Good Thief, and will be joined by SNSD member Seohyun. She’s clearly branching into acting after her first major drama role last year in Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo playing one of the supporting female leads. I thought she was actually passable in Moon Lovers but getting the bump up to female lead of a fifty episode weekend drama as her next role is asking for a big step up in delivery. Rounding out the cast is Im Joo Eun as the second female lead, once again finding herself playing second fiddle to a bigger name actress with less experience.
Bad Thief, Good Thief premieres in late May after Father, I’ll Take Care of You. Writing is the screenwriter of Glamorous Temptation, May Queen, and Golden Rainbow.
