I really like Yoo In Young. She has been continuously playing strong supporting roles and even if the role is not written well, she adds a lot to make them interesting and stand out. You From Another Star, Mask, Three Musketeers, Oh My Venus and now she has joined revenge melodrama Goodbye Mr. Black — that is especially a good news as the drama was in some trouble a few months back as it could not lock a network for broadcast. Another star to join is hot and handsome Daniel Henney, who last worked in dramaland for action-thriller Fugitive Plan B which came in 2010.
Goodbye Mr Black stars Lee Jin Wook as the man who goes for a revenge mission as he got betrayed by his friend. Moon Chae Won plays a woman who helps him by posing as his wife and also heals him emotionally. Kim Kang Woo plays that friend and Yoo In Young will play his wife as well as Lee Jin Wook’s first love. Daniel Henney will take up the role of a financial adviser of a firm who is a benefactor to Moo Chae Won’s character — yes, the role which screams poor second lead who is a really good guy but never gets the girl. Song Jae Rim stars as a publisher. I’m really enjoying this ensemble cast and characters. I do wonder where Song Jae Rim’s role fits in. As a bonus, I’m getting a fake marriage trope which I LOVE.
On an additional note, Lee Jin Wook and Yoo In Young worked together in Three Musketeers as lovers-turned-enemies and in that show, he had a marriage of convenience as well. Wow. That’s a nice coincidence.
Goodbye Mr. Black will premiere in March on MBC.
