The casting news was confirmed by her agency MSteam Entertainment on December 28.
Lee Min Jung will take on the role of Shin Da Hye, a beautiful department store employee/model who retires after getting married and becomes the ideal wife to her family. After her husband suddenly passes away, she goes back to working at the department store and soon falls in love with the dreamy 30-something branch manager Lee Hae Joon (Rain), who has been given one more shot at life after working himself to death in his previous life.
Loosely based on established Japanese author Asada Jiro‘s novel “Mr. Tsubakiyama’s Seven Days,” the entertaining yet sentimental melodrama will have viewers thinking about the borders between life, death, love, and happiness.
“Please Come Back, Mister” is expected to premiere after the currently airing “Remember” finishes its run in late February.
