MBC TV's weekend drama, "Song of the Han River" is a story of life and love involving a vibrant middle-aged woman, her two daughters, a niece, a nephew, and a cast of other characters surrounding them. The woman, named Kim Young-hee, is a widow who sells fish to support her family. Through their often turbulent lives, we are able to experience the difficulties of a not uncommon family and the persistence ofthe love its members have for one another. "Song of the Han River" is a warm but enervating story of ordinary people dealing with the normal difficulties of life.
To bring about a sort of renaissance in MBC's weekend drama offerings, "Song of the Han River" ambitiously reunited the team of Kim Jeong-su and Choi Jong-su from the popular MBC drama "You and I" for the first time in 6 years. Planning and preparations for this new presentation were undertaken from May 2004, and the target audience ranged from those in their early 30s to those in their 50s.
