Nobody can deny the onscreen mother-daughter relationship between Kim Tae-hee and Seo Woo-jin for her TV comeback show Hi Bye, Mama! which garnered a following all around the world. Even more surprising was that her co-star who played her daughter Jo Seo-woo to her character Cha Yu-ri was actually a boy!
“He was very calm and smart, so responsible for his age,” said Kim who shared that Seo had the least errors while acting. Even though a boy, Seo was chosen to play as Kim’s child because of their resemblance.
Kim plays a mother who died and left her husband and daughter. The series was a tearjerker and saw Cha Yu-ri return to the world to spend time with her family.
“I do think that Woo-jin helped me in my acting. I don’t know what I would have done without him,” Kim added.
When asked what her husband, Rain, said about her TV comeback, Kim shares that he did not watch the series.
“He said that it was so sad and he could not watch it,” she shared.
