Cha Tae Hyun, Bae Doona, Son Seok Gu, And Lee El Confirmed For New Remake Drama
The cast has been finalized for the upcoming KBS 2TV drama “The Greatest Divorce” (working title).
“The Greatest Divorce” is a romantic comedy that will question if marriage is the true completion of love. The drama will explore the difference in women and men’s thoughts about love, marriage, and family. It’s a remake of “Matrimonial Chaos,” a popular Japanese drama written by Sakamoto Yuji who also wrote the original drama that was recently remade into tvN’s “Mother.”
Cha Tae Hyun, Bae Doona, Lee El, and Son Seok Gu will portray two different married couples. Cha Tae Hyun will appear as a stubborn man named Jo Seok Moo who seems to have a loose screw. He prefers to be alone rather than somewhere with many people. Unlike his real-life friendly image, the actor will transform into the mean-spirited yet sensitive Jo Seok Moo.
Bae Doo Na will portray Kang Hwi Roo. In contrast to her husband Jo Seok Moo, Kang Hwi Roo is a woman who’s easygoing about everything. At times, she can be restless and hasty, but is an optimistic and lovable character.
Lee El will play the role of Jo Seok Moo’s first love Jin Yoo Young. She seems introverted and unstable, but has a strong hold on her own perspectives.
Son Seok Gu will appear as the mysterious Lee Jang Hyun. People have a hard time figuring out what his thoughts and he’s always wanted by many women. He made his acting debut in the second season of the U.S. series “Sense8” and left an impression on viewers as a villain in “Mother.”
“The Greatest Divorce” will be directed by Yoo Hyun Ki whose previous works include “Brain,” “Seoyoung, My Daughter,” and “Unkind Ladies.” The drama is scheduled to air in October.
