Kim Jun Myeon (EXO’s Suho) will play the main role, Ha Do Woo, in “How Are You Bread,” a new fantasy romance drama about baking. It will be produced by Aura Media, which also was the main production company behind “Doctor Stranger,” “Bride of the Century,” and “Best Couple,” to name a few.
“How Are You Bread” tells the tale of a secretive, genius pastry chef Ha Do Woo, who makes “bread that grants wishes” every morning at his mysterious bakery, and No Mi Rae, who is a script writer for a variety program that infiltrates the bakery in order to cast said patisseur.
It will be a romanic melodrama that portrays the lovey-dovey, but chaotic love story of the two main characters, along with the warm, touching story of how Ha Do Woo gives hope to those who are having a hard time with his bread.
Known for directing dramas “Athena” and “The 3rd Hospital,” as well as movies “Bicheonmu” (also known as “Flying Warriors”) and “Last Present” (also known as “His Last Gift”), director Kim Young Joon will be in charge of this drama, while Kang Soo Hyun, who’s known for her work with “Best Couple” and “Under Black Moonlight,” will be writing the script.
Head producer for Aura Media Go Dae Hwa reveals, “Even with his busy schedule, Kim Jun Myeon’s passion towards acting and this production is visible, and his preparations and efforts are amazing. He will show a new side of himself as the main character of a melodrama.”
According to the production team, “How Are You Bread” will air in South Korea and China simultaneously sometime in the second half of the year, and is currently in discussion to air in 30 other countries, such as Japan and countries in the Americas, Europe, and Southeast Asia. It will begin filming sometime this month.
