SBS’s upcoming weekend drama “Wonderful Mama” officially kicked off its production by hosting its first script reading this past weekend.
On March 3, the cast and crew gathered at the SBS Prism Tower in Sangamdong, Seoul, for the first reading. Jung Yumi, Jung Kyeo Woon, Lee Chung Ah, and others were joined by screenwriter Park Hyun Joo, who worked with each actor and advised them as they recited their lines.
“Wonderful Mama” is described as a heartwarming family drama about a loan shark mom (Bae Jong Ok), a self-made woman who now own multi-million won buildings, and her three immature children. She gets diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and decides that she needs to make her adult children grow up. Jung Yumi will play the eldest daughter, Go Young Chae, a hot-tempered princess who works as a designer. As she matures, she realizes her mother’s fierce love for her children and the importance of family.
“Wonderful Mama” will replace “My Love, Madame Butterly” on SBS this May.
