Whenever I see a bunch of dolled up Korean actors and actresses on a photo set with a lavish backdrop, chances are it’s poster filming for a weekend drama. These sprawling affairs with a large cast and many intersecting story lines are there for the steady weekend fix of family with a dollop of makjang, and how big that dollop is varies from drama to drama. Upcoming SBS weekend drama Good Witch has one huge makjang element in that leading lady Lee Da Hae is playing twins, the good sister who is married and the unmarried flight attendant sister, and someone the married good sister has to pretend to be the other one. Good sister is married to Bae Soo Bin‘s character while the flight attendant sister works with Ryu Soo Young as a airline pilot. The drama is from the PD of My Heart Twinkle Twinkle and Temptation of Wife, with the screenwriter of Birth of a Beauty and One Well-raised Daughter.
