The cast of upcoming SBS drama “Secret Mother” (working title) has been finalized!
The mystery-thriller drama revolves around a friendship that forms when a mysterious surrogate mother enters the house of a woman who has been hiding a secret about her child’s death.
Kim So Yeon will play Lisa Kim, a surrogate mother to children studying abroad in the United States and living in her homestay. Her character has a calm and upright image and is an icon of maternal passion and conviction. She is the object of envy for mothers as any child who is taken care by her is guaranteed to walk the path of an elite. This will be her first drama after getting married to Lee Sang Woo last June and changing agencies from Namoo Actors to J Wide-Company.
Song Yoon Ah will take the role of a former doctor turned full-time housewife and mother named Kim Yoon Jin. Despite her elegant and sophisticated appearance, she is a sociable character who is able to befriend anyone. She is devoted to her family, especially to her son, in order to forget the guilt about the death of her daughter.
The actress commented, “I’m honored and happy to participate in a good production. I will do my best with the director, writer, staff, and my co-stars in order to create a good drama that will meet the viewers’ expectations.”
Song Jae Rim will be playing Ha Jung Hwan, a simple and honest homicide detective who acts first and thinks later. He is the only character who believes in Kim Yoon Jin’s doubts about her daughter’s death and helps her find the truth behind it. Song Jae Rim will also be starring in JTBC’s “Clean With Passion For Now” (literal title) in April.
Kim Tae Woo will take the role of Han Jae Yeol, the husband of Kim Yoon Jin and a police chief who graduated from the police academy with honors. Han Jae Yeol is a gentleman who makes a favorable impression on others with his kind eyes, but when he meets criminals, he changes completely. Kim Tae Woo is currently starring in “Mystery Queen 2.”
“Secret Mother” is set to air sometime in May after “The Good Witch.”
