Yang Hee-kyung in Goodbye to Goodbye
To be honest, the drama Goodbye to Goodbye or Parting Left is not everyone’s cup of tea. If analyzed closely, people nowadays prefer watching a heart-throbbing romance to a deep life values drama, and Goodbye to Goodbye is exactly that. The kind of drama in which the story-telling does not involve a romantic saga of two people helplessly falling in love.
In short, Goodbye to Goodbye tells the stories of women, whose hearts have been broken by the betrayal of their loved ones. The character Seo Young-hae, played by the actress Chae Shi-ra, is that of an ordinary housewife whose husband is a pilot. Unfortunately, one day, her husband whose name is Han Sang-jin, played by the actor Lee Sung-jae, slept with his co-worker who is a flight attendant named Kim Se-young, played by Jung Hye-young. As if things haven’t been bad enough, Kim Se-young got pregnant with a child, a daughter she named Han Yoo-yeon, played by child actress Shin Bi. Bitter of what has happened, Seo Young-hae decided to live separately from her husband.
Just when Seo Young-hae thought that things couldn’t be worse, suddenly a woman named Jung Hyo, played by Jo Bo-ah, showed up on her doorstep. Jung Hyo claimed that she is pregnant with Han Min-soo’s child. Therefore, as Han Min-soo’s mother, Seo Young-hae must shelter her for a while.
At first, things were nasty between Seo Young-hae and Jung Hyo, but as the plot unfolds, they come to understand one another.
Other than the stories of the women mentioned above, another woman’s story that cannot be missed is the life story of Kim Ok-ja, played by senior actress Yang Hee-kyung. Kim Ok-ja is the mother of Kim Se-young, and she will do everything she can for her daughter, including giving Han Sang-jin. In order to do that, Kim Ok-ja even moved to Seo Young-hae’s house, just to persuade her to let go of Han Sang-jin.
Another reason why she was so keen on getting Han Sang-jin for her daughter is that, later on, it was revealed that, she is a mistress herself. Therefore, she did not want her daughter and granddaughter to live a miserable life like hers.
Many people have been captivated by Yang Hee-kyung’s charming acting as Kim Ok-ja in Goodbye to Goodbye, so people have been trying to find out more about her.
