On March 21, Dramax announced that the drama will air simultaneously on Dramax and MBN and added, “Exo’s Suho and Ha Yeon Soo’s drama ‘Rich Man’ will be a Wednesday-Thursday drama that will premiere on May 9,” and “The drama will build upon the original series’s strengths and add a Korean touch that will bring out a unique charm and differentiate it from the original Japanese drama.”
“Rich Man, Poor Woman” will be a remake of the popular 2012 Japanese drama “Rich Man, Poor Woman.” The drama will follow the story of genius programmer and CEO Lee Yoo Chan (EXO’s Suho), who has a facial recognition disability which means he can’t recognize the face of the woman he loves, and Kim Bo Ra (Ha Yeon Soo), a job seeker with a positive attitude whose memory is as good as Alpha Go’s.
They will be joined by Oh Chang Suk, who will play perfect guy Min Tae Joo, the co-founder and vice president of Lee Yoo Chan’s IT company. Kim Ye Won will Min Tae Ra, Min Tae Joo’s younger sister who is also an art curator and gallery owner.
“Rich Man, Poor Woman” will premiere on May 9 on both Dramax and MBN. It will also be exclusively available on Viki!
