Kim Seon-ho to Star in Drama Adaptation of ‘Mr. Handy’ this 2021
Our favorite “Good Boy” is set to star as Hong Doo-shik, an unemployed jack of all trades. Mr. Hong would do anything for anyone in their seaside village of Gongjin. Meanwhile, Shin Min-a is Yoon Hye-jin, a dental specialist who’s quite the opposite of Hong Doo-shik. The two cross paths when Yoon Hye-jin moves to Gongjin after her life plans fall apart.
“Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” will be written by Shin Ha-eun, who wrote the historical drama “The Crowned Clown.” Meantime, Yoo Je-won, who directed hits such as “Hi Bye Mama” and “Oh My Ghost” takes on the project.
The drama is an adaptation of the 2004 Korean film “Mr. Handy,” a.k.a. “Mr. Hong,” starring Uhm Jung-hwa and the late Kim Joo-hyuk. If you haven’t seen the film, here’s a quick look of what we could expect from the K-drama version:
