Upcoming MBC weekend drama Do You Hear My Heart has rounded out its leading cast. The drama starring Hwang Jung-eum (Giant) as the resident Candy and Kim Jae-won (My Love Patzzi) as the hero has cast its second leads: Go Joon-hee, above left (Chuno, What’s Up Fox) and Namgoong Min, above right (Birth of the Rich, One Fine Day), in the main love square. I rather like Go Joon-hee, although I haven’t seen her in much. She’s not stellar, but she’s got very expressive eyes, and has always been memorable in bit roles.
Also joining the cast is the young Kim Sae-ron, star of last year’s hit film Ajusshi, opposite Won Bin. She’s the envy of every girl in Korea, mostly because she got to do this, this, and this. What, not ME. I’m not jealous of a little girl! That’s absurd.
Behind the scenes are PD Kim Sang-ho of Fantasy Couple and writer Moon Hee-jung of Smile, You, so expect light, family fare, which will be a complete 180 from the timeslot’s current resident, Flames of Desire.
Do You Hear My Heart premieres Saturday, April 2 on MBC.
