It’s been a well-deserved but now much too long acting break for K-actress Lee Bo Young, going on maternity leave over a year ago after welcoming first daughter with husband K-actor Ji Sung. Last month she was reportedly considering her television return in early 2017 with the K-drama remake of Japanese drama Mother. It’s the story of an elementary school teacher who kidnaps her own student to take the child away from her abusive mother. So it’s basically two wrongs which never makes a right, but then again it makes for compelling storytelling.
She is now confirmed for the drama which already has half the script finished and comes from the pen of successful movie screenwriter Jung Seo Kyung who wrote acclaimed movies The Handmaiden, Thirst, Lady Vengeance, and I’m a Cyborg That’s Okay. Motherhood appears to suit Lee Bo Young but her acting was at career highs when she took a break so I’m excited to see her return next year. Last month she did a fall pictorial for Bazaar Korea that combines her usual aura of classy and warm.
very classy and I can’t wait to see her come back.
Who’s playing the child? Honestly good luck finding a 6 year old who can act as well as ashida mana
jung eun in geum bi can act well. I think she will match to Lee Bo Young.
Shin Rin Ah (Marriage Contract, LOTBS) is also excellent!
I’m happy to see her back to dramaland!! 😀
she’s soooo beautiful…
i hope they choose the girl who played geum bi to play the child.
I miss you unnie… glad you’re coming back to KDramaland
She looks so graceful and elegant…. can’t wait to see her come back to dramas at last.
