On February 1, an MBC representative confirmed that the two actors will be playing the male and female leads. Directed by Han Chul Soo and Lee Soon Ok, the drama will tell the story of a man (Oh Ji Ho) who was the ace of a special investigations squad who is suddenly forced to raise a young child, his niece.
Lee Soo Kyung is returning to MBC after last year’s “A Daughter Just Like You” and will be playing the role of Oh Ji Ho’s first love, who is now the single mother of a five-year-old son. Other castmates include young actor Kim Min Jae, actress Jung Soo Young, and 4minute’s Nam Ji Hyun.
The production staff said, “We want to express the message that daily happiness is the greatest gift to those that have raised children, those that are currently raising children, those that are planning on getting married, and to those women who have sacrificed much in order to become mothers.”
Edit: A previous version of this article had incorrectly listed Kim Min Jae as Lee Min Jae.
