MBC Starts Filming Weekend Drama Rich Family’s Son with Kim Ji Hoon and Kim Joo Hyun

All the attention on weekend dramas right now is centered around KBS drama My Golden Life, which almost hit 45% AGB nationwide ratings in its latest episode and netted itself a two episode extension as well. I love the works of the screenwriter So Hyun Kyung but have been unable to hit play due to personal opinions with the casting. MGL will certainly end with a ratings run average in the mid-30% which is an incredible feat in this day and age, but come March with the behemoth out of the way new arrivals will have a chance to shake things up.

MBC will be premiering Rich Family’s Son following the conclusion of Man Who Sets the Table and I was pleasantly surprised to see Kim Ji Hoon back in leading man position this time opposite Kim Joo Hyun. Even the second leads are nicely chosen in Hong Soo Hyun and Lee Kyu Han, with the script by the screenwriter of Mom and The Firstborn. The drama is about a lazy rich family’s son who ends up saddled with the family’s enormous debt and needs to mature in life to repay it, with a strong patient woman by his side who provides emotional support. Sounds tailored for the omma crowd, and for me too lol thanks to Kim Ji Hoon. Continue reading
