Uee And Lee Jang Woo’s New Drama Holds First Script Reading With Full Cast
On August 18, KBS’s upcoming weekend drama “The Only One On My Side” (tentative title) released photos from their first script read-through.
The reading took place on August 7 at the KBS building with producing director (PD) Hong Suk Goo and writer Kim Sa Kyung. Also present were the full cast: Choi Soo Jong, Uee, Lee Jang Woo, Na Hye Mi, Yoon Jin Yi, Park Sang Won, Cha Hwa Yun, Im Ye Jin, Jin Kyung, Park Sung Hoon, Jung Eun Woo, Go Na Eun, Jung Jae Soon, and Lee Doo Il.
This drama is Choi Soo Jong’s first return to a public broadcast station drama in six years, playing the character of Kang Soo Il, who hides his true identity to protect the happiness of his only daughter.
Uee plays Kim Do Ran, a young woman who stoically endures an unexpected setback in her life through her endless optimism. The character is said to be a 100 percent fit for Uee’s own energy. In his first role since his discharge from the military, Lee Jang Woo plays Wang Dae Ryuk, the ambitious director of a company.
Na Hye Mi plays Kim Mi Ran, who will play a part in the romantic storyline, Park Sung Hoon plays a character named Jang Go Rae, Yoon Jin Yi plays Uee’s rival Jang Da Ya, and Jung Eun Woo plays Jang Yi Ryuk, who has a one-sided crush on Uee’s character.
PD Hong Suk Goo said after the read-through, “Ordinarily the first meeting of the cast and the first read-through is a pretty light-hearted affair, but the actors’ sincerity and the emotion of the story has made this moment emotional. I will do my best, along with the rest of the crew, to produce a show that many viewers will love.”
“The Only One On My Side” tells the story of a woman who has to cope with the sudden reappearance of her father after 28 years.
