Newest addition to Triple completes main cast

A fresh face has been added to MBC’s Triple: 27-year-old actress and model Kim Hee, a rising “CF queen” who’s been seen in advertisements for numerous brands like Lotte, Anycall, Basic House, KTF, Yahoo, and Missha cosmetics.

Kim doesn’t play a skater; she’s the sole female (lucky her!) out of the characters in the advertising firm, working alongside fellow ad execs Yoon Kye-sang, Lee Jung-jae, and Lee Seon-kyun. Her character is described as free-spirited and positive, whose brightness cheers those around her.

PD Lee Yoon-jung explained that she’d watched Kim Hee in a short film and thought, “She’s it.” Kim was cast immediately.

With the “triple” (or trio) of male leads set in stone, Kim Hee’s casting rounds out the female trio as she joins Lee Hana and Min Hyo-rin. Personally, I think the strength of the men far outweighs the women’s in both talent and appeal, but given that this drama’s viewership will probably skew heavily toward the female set, maybe that’s the intention.

Triple premieres June 11.

can't wait! she's really pretty and has a quirky charm that's a little similar to lee hana, at least based on a cf i've seen her in a few years back. hopefully, her cf presence will translate well on triple.

i'm a fan of lee hana and all of the guys and have faith that the pd will do an awesome job (though, you're right, we shouldn't get our hopes up too much).

Hopes. Not. Up. I'll keep telling myself that. But, Kim Hee looks adorable. And I like Lee Hana decently. And I like that our main cast seems to be six instead of three or four. If only it could be June nowwwww

I like seeing new people that I dont know come (Particularily someone older after the flood of teens).

I dont really care for her character personality (almost all characters are the cheerful positive ones -.- ) she suppose to portray, but I still look forward to her performance ^^

She's pretty, does anyone think she looks similar to Lee Na Young?
Oh, Triple, can't wait.

Inexperience is risky business and I'm not so sure about this one, and even more scared about greenhorn Min Hyo Rin. But , then again, we must have some faith in the PD, Lee Yoon-jung, she knows what she's doing.

My Triple excitement may be clouding my judgement.

She's cute. Look a little like Kang Hye Jung. Maybe the her pose in the pix.

Reason to watch this drama was initially coz I was like oh yeah... a drama by Coffee Prince's PD... now I am just curious with all the names and well

BTW Drambean did ya read about a reality program that has casted Solbi in some figure skating variety? The program name elude me now but something along the line of Ice Princess or something.

What do you think? Will it "help" Triple in a way or "hurt" it by killing the anticipation coz I think Solbi's gig is debuting soon. Its different granted one is a drama one is a reality program. Personally I dunno but a reality program of figure skating is a bit tricky to me...

"With the “triple” (or trio) of male leads set in stone, Kim Hee’s casting rounds out the female trio as she joins Lee Hana and Min Hyo-rin. "

Isn't Nam Gyu Ri in this too? So we'll have 3 girls, 3 guys, and one luxury nose?

"Drambean did ya read about a reality program that has casted Solbi in some figure skating variety? "

But, if she falls on the ice, wouldn't her new face explode on impact?

Okay okay *turns off Popseoul-anti voice* I don't know if this is a good idea at all. And THAT seems just like a cheap cash-in on Yunamania.

I have never seen Nam Gyuri mentioned in a news report about Triple. I don't think she's in it. (Her name may have been bandied about before Min Hyo-rin was cast, but nothing more.)

Nam Gyu Ri's name is still listed in the cast at dramawiki. Grrr...who updates these things? Oh well....I will still watch Triple even without NGR :)

As for Solbi....why oh why did she do it? I thought she was very naturally pretty before but now she looks like ....eh, I better not say it.

Pshhh!!! If Full House 2 is listed in dramawiki to air in August, then it must be true!! It MUST!!! ;) :(

"As for Solbi….why oh why did she do it?"

Yeah, I was like that when Fany transformed himself into a vato loco. I'm sure when The Brian saw him, he was like "Ay papi chulo!!" :D

My only objection is doing a full contact blood sport like figure skating after you've just gotten over the swelling. MMA? Well that's like getting a nose job for free. But figure skating? OMG what if you FALL on your eyes!!!! O_o

Belleza are you an FTTS fan? I used to be a fangirl back in the day but I'm too old to be anyone's fangirl now but I still have a soft spot for Brian.

I was pretty disappointed in Fany (not because I'm anti plastic-surgery) but I just hate his new face. I feel he lost some of his boyish charm now that he looks more like a plastic Wonbin

@nycgrl,

"I used to be a fangirl back in the day but I’m too old to be anyone’s fangirl now but I still have a soft spot for Brian. "

K-pop hasn't changed that he's a Jersey boy thru and thru. "Yeah I'm proud to be American. So what . . . oops, did I see that out loud?!? Ugh. I'm not even looking at my fancafe tonight." :D

You know, live FTS is really special because you the audience feel as if in a middle of triangle. Hwan Hee's sweetness and godiva chocolate sensuality. Brian's lovesick boy next door and climb-the-vines sincerity.

Hwan Hee: "You're my first, my last, my everything. We got it together baby."
Brian: "How can you mend this broken heart?"
Hwan Hee: "But I can't get enough of your love baby!"
Brian: "Let's stayyyyy together!"
Me: "Keep going." :D

If their solo work sometimes feels like a uncomfortable alliance between two strong leads, live there's just more connection with audience and sparks than in most other mainstream K-pop acts or superboybands.

"I feel he lost some of his boyish charm now that he looks more like a plastic Wonbin"

My first thought really was "OMG he looks Mexican!" My 2nd thought was "why did you do it Fany?" But my 3rd was "this is what he wants, and he's thought hard about it. I'll respect him for it." And then my last was "you know, he looks pretty damn good as a homeboy. Does that make me shallow if I like it, but a hater if I don't?"

Belleza always a wealth of info on variety of topics.

They are great together because they are like yin and yang/power and softness. And yes I did see them live and they were fantastic (similar to when I saw SG live) and it makes me a little sad they are pursuing separate projects after over 10 years as a duo. I guess it is inevitable as they mature that they will move on.

I know a number of people think he looks hotter now but I think Fany looked better before his surgery. It just had more typical korean features and it was softer. His cosmetic change to me was like Jennifer Grey's nose job. It drastically changed her face rather than the subtle did he or didn't he, which I prefer since it is still you but a little better.
