Oh Ji Ho admits that being a real-life father makes it difficult to act in Oh My Geum Bi
In an interview with the beautiful cast of upcoming family drama Oh My Geum Bi (aka My Fair Lady), lead actor Oh Ji Ho revealed that since he has a little daughter in real life, it is very difficult for him to act in sad scenes with his on-screen daughter Heo Jung Eun.
He reveals that it is particularly hard for him to say mean things to his daughter in the drama, and that the sad scenes written into the script about his daughter's illness are already causing him anxiety.
Doesn't it sound like Oh Ji Hyo is the best daddy in real life?
In Oh My Geum Bi, Hwi Chul (Oh Ji Ho) is a hapless conman who turned to crime after his dreams of becoming a chef were shattered when he lost his sense of smell. While in prison, he receives the surprise of his life when the 10-years-old daughter he never knew he had, Geum Bi, shows up, asking for his release so that she can live with him. Geum Bi never knew that her father was still alive, and when she discovers this, the feisty girl decides to help fix her dad's life. Unfortunately, just when the duo are reunited and begin to develop a strong father-daughter bond, Geum Bi is diagnosed with Niemann-Pick disease type C, which leads to rapid memory loss and physical deterioration. Hwi Chul learns about the preciousness of life while taking care of Geum Bi, and falling in love with Go Gang Hee (Park Jin Hee), an artifact researcher who led a lonely life before becoming involved with the father/daughter pair.
