Kim Tae Hee Confirmed To Return To Acting After 5 Years In New tvN Fantasy Drama
Kim Tae Hee is officially making her long-awaited return to the small screen!
On November 28, tvN’s upcoming drama “Hi Bye, Mama!” (working title) confirmed that Kim Tae Hee and Lee Kyu Hyung would be starring opposite one another as its two leads. Notably, the drama will mark Kim Tae Hee’s first acting project since the 2015 SBS drama “Yong Pal.”
“Hi Bye, Mama!” will tell the story of a mother who, after passing away in a tragic accident, returns to her husband and daughter as a ghost for 49 days. Kim Tae Hee will star as the late Cha Yu Ri, who has maintained her positive and idealistic personality despite having spent the past five years as a ghost. Due to her unfulfilled longing to hold her daughter in her arms, Cha Yu Ri is unable to leave this world behind—and she ends up miraculously receiving the opportunity to return to her family for 49 days.
Lee Kyu Hyung will play the role of Cha Yu Ri’s widower Jo Kang Hwa, a thoracic surgeon who struggles with the grief of having lost his beloved wife and first love. After Cha Yu Ri’s death, Jo Kang Hwa becomes so distressed that even his personality ends up changing. When his late wife unexpectedly returns, looking exactly the same as before she passed away, Jo Kang Hwa finds his life turned upside down for the second time.
“Hi Bye, Mama!” is scheduled to air on Saturdays and Sundays sometime in the first half of 2020.
