An entertainment industry insider told JTBC Entertainment News, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, Monday that “Wonderful World” has been scheduled as a drama on MBC to be aired on Fridays and Saturdays.

“Wonderful World” will tell the story of Eun Soo-hyun, played by Kim, who after losing her son seeks to bring justice to the perpetrators with her own hands. Cha will play a character named Kwon Sun-yool, who gets involved in Soo-hyun’s plot.

Kim Kang-woo and Im Se-mi will play supporting roles alongside Kim and Cha.

“Wonderful World” will be directed by Lee Seung-young, who directed “The Missing” (2015), “Voice 2” (2018) and “Tracer” (2022). The drama is written by Kim Ji-eun, who wrote the screenplays for “Cheongdamdong Scandal” (2014-2015), “Enemies from the Past” (2017-2018) and “Lie After Lie” (2020).

Cha played minor roles in films and dramas before officially debuting as a member of boy band Astro in 2016. He has since starred in lead roles in a number of hit dramas including “Gangnam Beauty” (2018), “Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung,” (2019) and “True Beauty” (2020-2021). He is currently starring in “A Good Day to Be a Dog,” airing also on MBC.

Kim Nam-joo debuted in 1994 through a talent search program by SBS and rose to stardom in the late 1990s.
