I’m sure tons of folks will be thrilled to hear this drama news – Goodbye Mr. Black has been officially revived! I never thought it was totally dead, that makes no sense when the drama has a writing-directing team already and finished casting the main leads. Whereas when drama projects like the shelved Shin Mina rom-com Let’s Have Dinner Together get put on hiatus, it’s harder to revive when only one piece of the puzzle was in place.
Goodbye Mr. Black was basically a few steps from crossing the proverbial starting line when things blew up with original airing network SBS, now the drama is in the hands of rival network MBC. K-news is reporting that Goodbye Mr. Black has been picked up by MBC and will air in the Wed-Thurs time slot in early 2016. Even better news is that the originally cast leads of Lee Jin Wook, Moon Chae Won, Kim Kang Woo, and Song Jae Rim are all remaining onboard.
Right now MBC is airing rom-com She Was Pretty in the Wed-Thurs time slot, with the drama scheduled to wrap up its run in the first week of November. After that is the drama remake of K-movie Marrying the Mafia called Sweet Family (see the recently released script reading picture below). The drama Sweet Family has already cast Girl’s Day‘s Mina as the young female lead (groan), daughter to Jung Woong In and Yoo Sun‘s mob couple. The rival mob parents are played by Jung Joon Ho and Moon Jung Hee, and it basically reads as a drama comedy about gangster parents and their kids Romeo and Juliet romance. That means Goodbye Mr. Black will likely follow Sweet Family and air in the first weeks of January 2016.
urggh why mbc I do not like that network ? I was hoping for tvn to pick this up Anyway Fighting Moon Chae Won!!, ???
I bet MBC Drama dept will throw a party tonight!
Wow, just wow.. The leads are just too good to waste
so……happy, this is the only upcoming drama that i wait to air, lately only few drama that i watch n now i don’t have anything to watch
Thank you MBC. I can’t wait to see Moon Chae Won.
SBS will regret it. I’m so anticipating this drama.
YAYYYYYYYYYYYY! I hope they crush SBS with this drama!!!!!!
when we’re still don’t know what’s SBS drama at that time? no, I hope it will be Lee Jong Seok’s drama, so no…
Errr.. haven’t you read the news yesterday? YSH is the one gets the offer for SBS’ Remember. Not LJS. In fact, news came out just a day or two after Koala made her LJS’s post. Lol
yes, I know -_-
I just hope LJS will pick SBS drama after YSH’s “Remember” which will head-to-head with Goodbye Mr. Black.
Im excited with the mobs parents. Any idea who is the Romeo?
Lee Minhyuk from BTOB
This is great news! with such cast and story it would have been a waste if it went to nothing..it’s SBS lost and MBC gain..
WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK GOD FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lee Jin Wook though… so he’s still in this? lol I guess it could be worst but wished the lead could’ve been BETTER!
This will probably GMB vs DOTS vs Saimdang and SJK vs MCW..
I find the MCW vs SJK match exciting…haha! Poor Chaeki shippers…oh wait that includes me..lol! Still, this is surely something I’m looking forward to next year!
OMG! excited for this! Moon Chae-Won unni and Lee Jin-Wook oppa, i adore them so much! I don’t like oppa’s drama this year, hope he revive his image in this one, fingers cross!
At least thanks god the lead is not one of the flower boys or those kpop pretend actors.
“Kpop pretend actors ”
I’m dying ??
I have no prob if they can act. they maybe better than the so called actors but actually terrible than idol-actor. but well, prejudice people will be forever prejudice
LJK btter not ruin this drama by acting all cute again. that/HJW acting cute is what ruin the drama.
MCW pick a bad drama to star in. she need to star with a guy like KSH. so she will be more popular in china.that were all k-actor/actress get most of their money from.
MCW is an actress who is more hungry for quality productions and more challenging roles rather than popularity. Ask her who are the actors she wants to star with and she probably answer actors like Hwang Jung Min,Ryu Seung Ryong..
It might be rare but yes. She is someone who’s not really into popularity but more into something that she is interested doing. The girl even said that she doesn’t want to do photoshoots or variety shows if it isn’t conpletely necessary for the promotions or her dramas/movies and that’s what she did. Always prefer to go hide without a trace (like..at all) when there’s no acting projects.
@Cc.. agree with you
Oh c’mon!!! 3 things:
1. KSH is so overrated. I consider his acting mediocre.
2. LJW didn’t ruin TTWWNIL. He’s not the one who’s acting all cute. Get your facts right.
3. Chaewon is a chaebol! Lol! She’s not working/acting for the sake of money. It’s her passion dear.. She loves what she’s doing and that’s not because she’s earning..
is she the same actress that act with the rapiest guy? wonder did the rapiest guy comeon the her doing their filming.
