Hit Screenwriters Kim Eun Hee and Kim Eun Sook are Good Friends in Real Life and Have Daughters Who Write in their Respective Styles

Okay this is such a cute and wonderful tidbit to share. Screenwriter Kim Eun Hee (Signal, 3 Days, Sign) was recently on a variety show interview and discussed a wide range of topics ranging her from dramas next year Kingdom 3 and Mount Jiri, but this info is on her personal life. She’s apparently very good friends with fellow hit screenwriter Kim Eun Sook (The King: Eternal Monarch, Goblin, Descendants of the Sun, Secret Garden) and the two meet regularly for a meal to catch up in person. Kim Eun Sook often suggests Kim Eun Hee add a kiss moment to a kiss and Kim Eun Hee says that moment doesn’t need it but the two laugh about it. Both screenwriters have a daughter who is also getting into the screenplay world and apparently write just like their moms. Kim Eun Hee’s daughter would write: there is a book that cannot be opened otherwise there is calamity, and the ending is the book being opened. Kim Eun Sook’s daughter would write: the male lead is a chaebol heir who transferred to the school and arrived riding a white horse like a prince. Ahahahaha lol I’m sure these are exaggerated but I love how Kim Eun Hee pokes fun at both of their styles and each occupies a different niche. Sometimes audiences want soufffle that falls apart if we stare at it too long, other times we want a long leisurely meal.
