Yoon Son-ha cast as femme fatale in Runaway

KBS’s action drama Runaway sure is letting loose with its casting news. Next up: actress Yoon Son-ha faces off as Lee Na-young‘s rival in a femme fatale role.

Initially, her character Mi-jin tries to approach Jin-yi (Lee Na-young) in order to kill her, as part of covering up her own past. However, in the process of doing so, she gets entangled with private eye Ji-woo (Rain) and Kai (Daniel Henney).

Yoon Son-ha received recognition for her acting in early projects Did We Really Love? and Snowflakes, and last took on a drama series with 2007’s Oh Lovers. Being fluent in Japanese, she also rose to popularity after acting in Japanese dramas, though she hasn’t acted in either Korea or Japan in the past few years.

Of her role, Yoon said, “I’ll be putting my innocent, pure image behind me and transforming into a femme fatale, so I hope you’ll look forward to it.”

Runaway will premiere on KBS in September.

What's with everybody putting behind their "pure and innocent" image and going for a "sexy" one (or what they perceive as sexy)? Really, sometimes I think that these actresses don't have a mind of their own, and are following a "trend".

I know, some are branching out and all that - but why do they always mention it? I don't know how many times I've read Korean actresses saying those exact words, or some variation of it on this website alone.

I'm sorry if I offended anybody or if I sound too negative - I really don't mean to be all that derogatory. It's just that most Korean actresses seem like dolls, slavishly following what the general public believes to be "pretty" or "fashionable", etc. Only few stand out - and they are VERY different from their fellow actresses, usually in skill and talent. I guess the same is true for most countries - I just seem to see it more prominently in Korean culture.

@Irene: I guess you mean ppl like Jung Ryeo Won, Kim Sun Ah and Kang Hye Jung.. well, I think Korean pop culture is banking on what's hot then and there. That's why you have this overload of guyliners and hot abs in the male section of live performance shows...or the slew of tearjerkers melodramas during the early 2000s. Nevertheless, I'll reserve my opinions until I see them do whatever they want. Still, I understand what you are saying. :)

But what's with the complex relationships? I thought Lee Na Young is the main female lead...now we have 2 competitors? O___o

Yeah to be honest sexy isn't really a Korean thing. I'm not saying they can't be sexy, sure they can: Kim Hye Soo, Kim So Yeon, Uhm Jung Hwa comes to mind, but the majority of Korean actresses are more suited to the cutesy, pure n' innocent image.

"I’m sorry if I offended anybody or if I sound too negative – I really don’t mean to be all that derogatory"

Not derogatory at all IMO, even though we're generalizing a bit, but if Korean entertainment pushes too much for the sexy angle, I'll probably switch back to American TV.

I think I've seen her in japanese doramas and movies like Kisarazy cat's eye, she really is fluent in the language and I liked her acting.
But she's not very popular in Japan anymore thanks for her comments that japanese women are not pretty nor smart.
