Woman of Dignity and Strong Woman Do Bong Soon Screenwriter Slated for 2018 KBS Romance Drama

A popular cable network drama screenwriter is making the move to the prime time big three, and I hope this move both increases her exposure while continuing to allow her to write in the same vein that made her cable dramas such a success this year. Screenwriter Baek Mi Kyung is moving from cable network jTBC to KBS for a spring 2018 romance K-drama, ending her three drama consecutive hit streak with jTBC. Each of her dramas so far have built on the ratings success of the previous one, starting with My Love Eun Dong to Strong Woman Do Bong Soon and most recently with Woman of Dignity. She also writes strong female-centric dramas even if viewer criticism of certain of her works are valid. For the upcoming KBS drama, the story line revealed so far is that it’s a middle age healing romance and reunited Baek Mi Kyung with her Strong Woman PD Lee Hyun Min, who also directed Ms Temper and Nam Jung Gi, Bad Guy, Snow Queen, I’m Sorry, I Love You, and Sang Doo, Let’s Go to School.

I think 2017 is ending with a relative quiet note and it’s nice to have a bigger name screenwriter reveal a 2018 project to kick start to excitement look forward to next year.


Woman of Dignity and Strong Woman Do Bong Soon Screenwriter Slated for 2018 KBS Romance Drama — 3 Comments

  1. The writer redeemed herself with Woman of Dignity because SWDBS was watchable only because of the great acting and chemistry by the leads

  2. To be honest My Love Eundong became diaturbing and a train wreck nearing the end
    Strong Woman was childish and cringe if not for the two leads
    Woman of Dignity is really good.. i got hooked all the time. The two female leads are awesome

    • So basically, we have yet another writer who would crush and burn if the actors are weak.In other words, only when the actors are strong would tge script become bearable.This is why I respect writer No Hee Kyung even more, she can create a synergy between rookie actors, veteran actors, idols, variety personality like Kwang Soo for example..and make them shine without one overshining the other in the same drama and still produce great work
