My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho cast addition: T-ara’s Hyomin

Lots of casting news lately — here’s one for SBS’s My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho, and it involves another idol star crossing over into television. Pop group T-ara’s Hyo-min is joining her fellow members Eun-jung (Coffee House) and Ji-yeon (God of Study) in the acting game, and has been added to the Gumiho fantasy drama alongside Lee Seung-gi and Shin Mina.

Hyo-min takes a supporting role as a girl in a one-sided love with Lee Seung-gi; the latter is an aspiring action star and Hyo-min will play the daughter to the action school’s director. Her bright character, described as being friends with the two leads, does her best to win him over. This role is being called Hyo-min’s formal screen acting debut, but it’s not her absolute first time acting; she has performed in the musical production of I Really Really Like You (which was based off the TV drama starring Eugene).

This is also the first time I’m seeing a director attached to the project: the PD, Gu Sung-chul, previously did the weepie melodrama A Star’s Lover. I’m ambivalent about this, since it can go either way: I found the writing in A Star’s Lover tired and enervated by the drama’s end, but I was enthralled with the first four episodes, and a large part of that draw was the atmospheric, almost ethereal quality the director brought to the story.

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho will premiere on August 11.

T-ara girls were really in to acting huh. i think all members have done acting already. i wont be surprised if all the members will be part in a single drama. haha.. unlike other girl groups though. all they've done were cameos and variety shows just like SNSD, i think YoonA was the one into dramas.

Good Luck to Hyomin! i dont think she'll be left out in terms of acting from her members.

I've recently been watching "Delightful Girl Choon Hyang", and I just can't wait for a new Hong sisters drama!!! =D She seems much nicer than Chae-rin, though, as I don't really like her, brrrr, well, up till now at least, and I usually don't like the second female lead in their dramas. However, this Hyo-min seems very likable, and I hope she'll differ from the other second female leads a bit! Which depends on the script, too, of course : )

I'm happily waiting!

OOH. The director. I believe Star's Lover meh due to the writing. I think the directing was still quite alright all the way to the end. There's still a lot of nice cinematography in the show. Too bad the writing just went haywire. Would have been absolutely awesome and CJW would have been able to show her fiesty self. Too bad. I really like the OST and the first few episodes. :(

Ah, Han Chae-young and Shin Min-ah are sort of similar in some ways!!! XD I mean, the smile, and the way they talk...I don't know why, but it is really similar, somehow. Maybe it's just my imagination, though, and their faces are totally different XD

So she wont be the evil girl, but a girl with a sad one side love, but is always bright to pursuit her happiness.

Sounds like a very good role to debut.

I'm happy, seeing as T-ara is my favorite girl group. All of them have acted (the other 3 have had bit parts in dramas and movies.) I was definitely going to watch this in the first place, but Hyomin gives me another reason to watch.

Ooooh, How interesting, heh!

Geez, there she again -- T-ara member Hyomin will able to do well when she will be acting in this incoming drama "My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" for the first time, eh? ^_____^

As same thing as T-ara member Eun Jung who is still acting in Coffee House, too! =) Ha! I hope T-ara member Hyomin will work so hard to make this drama look so well!

DO YOUR BEST, T-ARA member Hyomin, okay! =)

Cool! Hopefully she won't have the vacant-eyes syndrome that her bandmate suffers from. Sorry not meaning to sound catty but I'm all about the eyes when I watch drama, no matter what role. Looking forward to watching this nonetheless.
The remaining two T-ara members who have yet to get into acting did one better, cameoed in Giant as an olden days girl band and got to take photos with Jung Bo-suk! (Oh noes! I want to take a piccie stood next to him, toooo!)

The role doesn't sound too hard to play. I wonder if it will be like Taec's role in Cinderella's Sister.

and i do wonder how many tv dramas become musicals. I'm surprised that Hyomin acted in a musical!
