Yoon Eun Hye and Lee Dong Gun Lead the Script Reading for Future’s Choice

Yoon Eun Hye! With Lee Dong Gun! In a drama! Together! Playing a future married couple! With five exclamations in a row, I’m not quite sure my excitement is properly conveyed so let me just say that the first official script reading stills of the cast of Future’s Choice (Mi Rae’s Choice) rendered me gobsmacked with giddiness quite like a sugar high. This time-travel rom-com sounds like my kind of cute plus interesting – heroine Mi Rae has spent the last three decades married to a certain man and somehow travels back in time to try and convince her younger self not to pick that very guy. I don’t know what future Kim Shin (Lee Dong Gun) did to piss off his wifey future Mi Rae (Yoon Eun Hye), I reckon it must take a whole lotta love to care so deeply that one wants to erase a marriage from the time line. Also attending the script reading is second male lead Jung Yong Hwa and second female lead Han Chae Ah, who will have a love line of their own first but it’ll get complicated once its entwined with Mi Rae and Kim Shin’s budding romance. Established actress Choi Myung Gil steps in as the time traveling older Mi Rae who gets a chance to influence her younger self not to walk down the path she took. The concept of time-traveling is one that resides solely in science fiction so the consequences of it can be explored in fiction in various ways. I prefer the concept that simply by time-traveling back a person has already subtly altered events so much so that even if the same choices are made the outcome could be different. Think The Butterfly Effect, where its the time-traveling and not the changing of decisions that makes the difference. This drama will be set in the entertainment world, with Mi Rae a budding screenwriter (probably a stand-in for writer Hong Ji Ah), Kim Shin is an ill-tempered perfectionist announcer/MC, Jung Yong Hwa’s Park Se Joo a cameraman but hiding the fact that he’s the grandson of the owner of the network and working as an undercover boss, and Han Chae Ah as Seo Yoo Kyung a morning show reporter. Future’s Choice airs in early October after Good Doctor on KBS Mon-Tues. And don’t worry about Yoon Eun Hye’s ridiculous perm, her character will only sport that hair style for a short period of time in the drama. Whew. Continue reading
