"Terius Behind Me" writer wrote script with So Ji-Sub in mind

Writer Oh Ji-Young has revealed the story behind writing the script for the upcoming MBC drama “Terius Behind Me.” According to the writer, So Ji-Sub was in from the beginning, even before she was done writing the synopsis.

Oh Ji-Young said, “I always imagined what it would be like to have a man, who is unrealistically charming and attractive, live next door. Just by looking at him, I would be able to find joy and meaning in life.”

She continued, “a mysterious man who appears out of the blue like a vitamin in daily lives of middle-aged women. That’s where the drama began. From that idea, I built on the foundation of the drama with a group of middle-aged women who watch him from his back, their apartments, mom cafes, group chat rooms, and finally, a national conspiracy.”

Then, she explained a little bit about her two main characters. Oh said, “Kim Bon, a black ops agent who chases after a huge national conspiracy, somewhat looks like a character who would only appear in movies. On the other hand, Go Ae-Rin is just a generic Korean middle-aged woman, who lives a normal and repetitive life. I chose these two characters because I wanted to maximize the fun and fantasy when two people from two completely different worlds cross paths.”

Furthermore, Oh Ji-Young revealed to have had So Ji-Sub in mind from the beginning. Oh said, “even before I was writing the synopsis for the drama, I was thinking about So Ji-Sub. I’m just thankful that he accepted to play in the role without a hesitation.”

Meanwhile, “Terius Behind Me” will premiere on September 27 at 10 PM, KST on MBC.

“I always imagined what it would be like to have a man, who is unrealistically charming and attractive, live next door.” You and me both, sis. *le sigh*

I'm still trying to decide if I want to watch this or not with all the new dramas premiering in the next few weeks, but the promos of So Ji Sub with children are really making me want to watch.
