Tasked to orchestrate the production is Yoo Je Won whose impressive works include Oh My Ghost, Tomorrow With You and Abyss. Writer Kwon Hye Joo (Go Back Couple) pens the screenplay.

Marking Kim’s return to the small screen after five years, Hi Bye, Mama! is set to showcase a unique character for the actress. Living as a ghost for five years, she is unable to leave the mortal world. When she unexpectedly receives a reincarnation trial for 49 days, a delightful reincarnation project ensues.

Kim Tae Hee challenges to present her comical side to breathe colors to her interesting role.

Rolling to a string of projects, Lee Kyu Hyung plays the role of Cho Gang Hwa, a thoracic surgeon who deeply longs for his dead wife.

Suiting up as Oh Min Jung, the second wife of Jo Kang Hwa is new generation actress Go Bo Gyeol. She has showcased remarkable impressions on dramas Arthdal Chronicles, The Third Charm and Mother.

Scene stealer Oh Ui Sik who diligently worked on character roles given to him plays the role of Cho Kang Hwa’s best friend and psychiatrist Gye Geun Sang. He is also Yu Ri’s brother and husband to Go Hyun Jung, to be portrayed by actress Shin Dong Mi. The latter is also a good friend with Kim’s character.

Rounding up the cast is rookie actor Lee Si Woo. His role is Jang Pil Seung, an airline pilot who lost her family in a car accident and has since lived with his grandfather.

Promising a refreshing story filled with laughter and emotion, the production team is confident on the different charms and colors that will highlight the synergy of its cast.

Further extending invitation to look forward to the amazing project, the production team invites drama fans to watch it.
