MBC’s upcoming weekend drama “Golden Garden” (literal translation) confirmed Han Ji Hye, Lee Sang Woo, Oh Ji Eun, and Lee Tae Sung as the lead roles. The mystery romance drama will tell the story of Eun Dong Joo (played by Han Ji Hye) attempting to truly live her life to its fullest.
“Golden Garden” is a collaborative project between director Lee Dae Young, who directed “Be Strong, Geum Soon,” “Father, I’ll Take Care of You,” and more, and screenwriter Park Hyun Joo, who wrote “Hooray For Love,” “Man Who Sets the Table,” and more. The expectations are high given that their collaboration in “Flower of the Queen” four years ago was a big hit.
Han Ji Hye’s character Eun Dong Joo was abandoned at an orphanage at the age of six. She does not remember anything aside from her name and grows up as a cheerful woman who endures her life despite many hardships. With Han Ji Hye’s success in “The Legendary Witch,” “Marry Me Now,” and many more dramas, the expectations are high for the success of her next project in terms of viewership ratings.
Lee Sang Woo will be acting the role of Cha Pil Seung, a man who is as cold-hearted as can be when it comes to love. Cha Pil Seung, the grandson of a wealthy woman, is a detective with a very high arrest rate. Despite his popularity among women due to his handsome looks, he is not easily seduced because of the wounds from having lost his parents when he was young. As Lee Sang Woo’s first role as a detective, it will be interesting to see how he differentiates this character from his previous roles in “Marry Me Now,” “Touch Your Heart,” and others.
Many people are looking forward to the chemistry between Han Ji Hye and Lee Sang Woo since the drama “Marry Me Now,” which they both starred in.
On the other hand, Oh Ji Eun will play the role of Sa Bi Na, an ambitious social media celebrity who tries to take Eun Dong Joo’s life away. Oh Ji Eun previously starred in “Unknown Woman.”
Lee Tae Sung will play the role of Choi Joon Gi, a man who possesses everything except love. Despite his wealthy background, his heart always feels empty, as he is a pure-hearted man who yearns for a happy family of his own. As he falls in love with the ambitious Sa Bi Na, his life becomes a whole mess. “Golden Garden” will be Lee Tae Sung’s first project after “My Golden Life” and “Miss Hammurabi.”
A source from “Golden Garden” shared, “Han Ji Hye, Lee Sang Woo, Oh Ji Eun, Lee Tae Sung, screenwriter Park Hyun Joo, and director Lee Dae Young are all cast and staff members that are not easy to see collaborating in the same project.” The source added, “We ask for your anticipation and interest as we plan to present to you a great piece of work with the collaboration of this great team.”
“Golden Garden” will air after the conclusion of “Different Dreams.”
