I’m a tad surprised to hear of another leading lady casting carousel situation particular for a drama that sounds primed to do solid ratings and get plenty of exposure. Han Chae Ah has turned down the leading lady role in MBC drama Money Flower and stepping in as the confirmed female lead is Park Se Young. Apparently she received the script earlier as well and passed, and after reviewing it again ended up saying yes. I would give a kidney to act opposite leading man Jang Hyuk but then again having a good script matters so maybe Money Flower was less compelling for the ladies in the way the role was written. I’m happy the leads are set and Park Se Young is as good as any to hanker down for a weekend long run. Money Flower is set to premiere the first week of November taking over for Bad Thief, Good Thief.
Joining Jang Hyuk and Park Se Young in Money Flower will be esteemed veteran actor Lee Soon Jae, we can’t have a weekend drama without one of the K-ent stalwarts in the line up playing the requisite elder role. Writing the script is Lee Myung Hee of Air City with the PD of I Summon You, Gold! and A Man Called God.
