Lim Soo-jung, Shin Ha-kyun May Bring On-screen Romance in New Drama
Acclaimed Korean actress Lim Soo-jung and actor Shin Ha-kyun are eyeing SBS’ new drama airing next year.
Lim and Shin are positively looking over the lead roles in “All About My Romance” [translated title], officials from their agencies told the magazine over the phone Monday.
Based on a Korean novel of the same title written by Lee Eung-joon, the upcoming drama will tell a love story of two congressmen, who are each affiliated to different parties.
Lim kicked off her acting career in 1998 and shot to stardom with “I’m Sorry, I Love You” (KBS2, 2004) alongside actor So Ji-sub. She has since acted only in the big screen and gained huge popularity through this year's hit movie “All About My Wife.”
Shin, who also made his debut in 1998, has starred in several small screen productions and won the grand prize at the 2011 KBS Drama Awards with a role in KBS' "Brain."
Jeon Do-yeon, Bae Yong-joon, Kong Yoo & Im Soo-jeong, next up is drama
Well known stop actors and actresses Jeon Do-yeon, Bae Yong-joon, Gong Yoo, Im Soo-jeong and more are looking into coming back with dramas. Jeon Do-yeon who is also known as 'the queen of Cannes" is well known for her quality movies, Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon who is known for his discerning eyes when it comes to choosing his work and Im Soo-jeong who has her fans craving for more of her on screens are into reading drama synopsis's these days.
These four people are number 1 when it comes to casting in Chungmuro for their experience and reputation. Jeon Do-yeon, Im Soo-jeong and Bae Yong-joon have been consistently getting love calls. However, these stars want dramas. Their commom hope is to come out with a new drama some time soon.
We can tell there has been a change of pattern amongst the main actors and actresses since last year. Those who have been in more movies acted as tow trucks on home screens. Han Seok-Kyu from "Deep-rooted Tree" was one and Sin Ha-gyoon from "Brain" was another. Actor Jang Dong-gun is also looking forward to a drama come back for the first time in twelve years.
Jeon Do-yeon's spokesperson told OSEN, "She is considering dramas rather than movies at the moment. She is looking through movies as well but she craves for drama more. She has gotten many offers but she hasn't found one she really likes yet".
"Maybe it's because of her nick name, 'the queen of Cannes', there is a preconception that Jeon Do-yeon only does movies. This isn't true. If there is a drama she wants to do then she will be glad to star in it. Her plan is to return with a drama within the year". Gong Yoo from the movie "The Crucible" is also planning on coming back with a drama.
Bae Yong-joon and Im Soo-jeong's spokesperson also claimed, "They are looking at dramas. Bae Yong-joon has a strong wish to star in a drama next and Im Soo-jeong hasn't done one since "Sorry, I Love You"".
All of them seem to have a strong desire to break the preconception that says they only work with movies.
