“Birdie Buddy” is a drama that’s been met with more obstacles than most. It has put After School‘s Uee through about a year of heartaches before it finally got picked up by tvN to begin airing this year.
On October 26, the 24 episode drama finally came to an end. Despite being busy with her KBS drama, “Ojakgyo Brothers,” Uee made sure to keep up with every episode and watched it live. “On days she couldn’t watch it live, she’d wait for the rerun and monitor her acting then,” officials of Pledis revealed.
“Birdie Buddy” is a special one because not only is it her first leading role, but also a drama that had difficulty being picked up by a network for nine months. After overcoming the heartache, however, she was able to give wings to her acting career.
Fortunately, she also received much praise from viewers as the role of a countrified lady learning to realize her dream of becoming a professional golfer.
“The drama’s main audience was intended to be females in their 20’s and 30’s, but we were able to bring in even men in their 40’s and 50’s,” the production company proudly revealed. The drama recorded 25% in nationwide viewer ratings, coming to a successful close.
