Kim Kang-woo to join Dong Yi



Ooh. Kim Kang-woo is about to join the cast of sageuk drama Dong Yi, which stars Ji Jin-hee as Joseon’s King Sook-jong and Han Hyo-joo as water maid (Dong-yi) turned concubine (later named Sook-bin).

A production source confirmed that he has been offered the role, and the decision is 90% of the way to finalization. They expect his casting to be made official within a week’s time. Kim Kang-woo’s side gave a more cautious answer that Kim wants to do the role and is looking on it favorably, but given how both sides have responded, I think it’s looking likely.

The role would have Kim in the role of Cha Chun-soo, who is by day a coroner with the police but a core member of an underground group by night. He’s a childhood friend of Dong-yi’s older brother Dong-joo, and when the latter is killed, he promises to take care of Dong-yi and devotes his life to protecting her.

As you know, I was blown away by Kim’s performance as an ice-cold, calculating, brilliant psycho financial genius in this year’s Story of a Man. I would LOVE to see him doing a sageuk — I think his first? — in what looks like another intense role. I confess I was only half-interested in Dong Yi, but now it’s got my attention.

Dong Yi is scheduled to air in March 2010.

I was looking for this thread after reading that on dramabeans.
KIM KANG-WOO!! I love him in Story of a Man.
Ji Jin Hee is an added bonus. He was great in The Great Dae Jang Geum, so he'll have no problem in this sageuk.
Definitely looking forward for this one.

Bae Soo-bin added to Dong Yi




Something tells me that Brilliant Legacy fans are gonna flip: Bae Soo-bin will once again be teaming up with Han Hyo-joo in the historical drama Dong Yi. (Then again, as the series has already cast Ji Jin-hee as the king who takes Han’s water maid character as his concubine, this means that Bae Soo-bin once again will play second fiddle…)

Bae is no stranger to the sageuk, having acted in Emperor of the Sea, Jumong, and Painter of the Wind. In Dong Yi, his role is described as “Bi-dam-like” as he portrays a masculine swordsman. He is the childhood friend to Dong-yi’s older brother, who asks him to take care of his sister before dying. He therefore watches over her throughout her life, loving her devotedly.

Bae intends to beginning martial arts and sword training in order to portray his character realistically. Having already performed in historical dramas, Bae has the basic skills such as equestrian experience and should be ready to begin immediately. Filming will begin in late January.

Last year was a huge year for Bae, as his career took off with roles in two hit dramas, Brilliant Legacy and Angel’s Temptation, as well as the films Aeja and Girlfriends. This newest role ought to raise his profile even higher.

Park Ha-sun cast as queen in Dong Yi



Historical drama Dong Yi has cast Park Ha-sun to play the role of Queen In-hyun, the second wife of King Suk-jong. Han Hyo-joo plays the lead character Dong-yi, a water maid who later became royal consort and gave birth to a future king; Ji Jin-hee plays King Suk-jong.

Queen In-hyun was pushed aside and lost standing when the king passed her over for a more favored concubine Lady Jang, which led to court strife. Eventually she was reinstated and the ambitious Jang demoted, but In-hyun died mysteriously and Jang’s faction was accused of poisoning. In-hyun looks after Dong-yi, three years her junior, when Dong-yi first enters the palace, and develops a trust in her. Jang will be played by Lee So-yeon, and if her recent vengeful turn in Angel’s Temptation is any indication, it will be with great gusto. (We’ve got a mini-Angel’s Temptation reunion, with her co-star Bae Soo-bin playing a protective figure to Dong-yi.)

According to a representative with the production, they chose Park Ha-sun because they wanted to put a fresh face to the role. Park has played queen consort in the past, in the 2007-08 SBS sageuk King and I.

Dong Yi will air on Mondays and Tuesdays on MBC beginning in March.

Friend’s Jung Yumi joins cast of Dong Yi




Jung Yumi is the latest addition to MBC’s big historical drama Dong Yi, joining Han Hyo-joo, who plays the titular water-maid-turned-concubine; Ji Jin-hee as king; Lee So-yeon as a scheming, more senior concubine; and Bae Soo-bin playing Daddy Long Legs yet again to Han.

This Jung Yumi is the actress from Friend, Our Legend, not to be confused with that other Jung Yumi (of Chaw and Que Sera Sera). Her character, described as kind and good, works in the king’s residential quarters and becomes caught up in an incident that leaves her shamed.

The drama will follow Pasta on Mondays and Tuesdays, and will premiere in March.
