Kim So-eun joins A Thousand Kisses

MBC’s new weekend drama A Thousand Kisses has added a couple more actors to its lineup, which is great for those of us who’ve been wanting to see more of rising actress Kim So-eun (Fine Windy Day, Boys Before Flowers).

The drama about a divorced woman’s rebound and success story has already cast Seo Young-hee (Bedevilled), Ji Hyun-woo (Birth of the Rich), and Ryu Jin (Baby-Faced Beauty) in lead roles.

Kim So-eun will play the younger sister to lead actress Seo Young-hee, who grew up with a bright attitude despite their mother running out on them at a young age. And — get this! — she also falls in love with gentlemanly Ryu Jin. Which is both Yay! and Uh, should I feel uneasy about the age difference? (Ryu Jin is 38, Kim So-eun 21.) I’m hoping the chemistry works there, and Kim is starting to play older than her age, so perchance it’ll be cute. I really hope so, since I like both actors.

Adding to the sibling rivalry motif is the fact that the two lead men, Ji Hyun-woo and Ryu Jin, are cousins. Why is this I’ll-fight-hyung-for-the-girl theme so prevalent in dramas? Beats me. I’ll give you a second to groan, perhaps recalling that botched brothers-centric-love-rectangle in Lie To Me. But since it’s one of those tropes that has been used time and time again, sometimes it’s depicted well (Sons of Sol Pharmacy).

Also cast is Cha Soo-yeon (Hot-Blooded Salesman, The World They Live In), who’ll take on an antagonistic role as a cold woman who stops at nothing in the name of love. She’ll be the one to love-and-leave our hero Ji Hyun-woo, gifting him with some painful scars along the way.

Scriptwriter Park Jung-nan is an industry veteran who most recently penned I Love You, Don’t Cry, while PD Yoon Jae-moon worked on Return of Iljimae, as well as Lawyers of Korea. A Thousand Kisses replaces All That Glitters on weekends, and premieres in August.

Shin Se Kyung, Park Min Yound and Kim So Eun all look too similar. The plastic surgeons need more inspiration. I wonder who the original one is...

I think Kim So Eun looks the most natural. Park Min Young on the other hand has very obviously done some work. Maybe that's why I can't really warm up to her, she just doesn't look natural.

Oh I didn't know that. Well that makes me respect her, cause atleast she is honest about it. I think every star should be honest about their plastic surgery.

Od course... Kim So Eun and Shin Se Kyung are natural beauty. They both once were child actress.
Child actress no need any plastic surgery to fix anything.
No comment for Park Min Young, I don't care about her.

For some seconds, I thought she is the same girl in City Hunter.

Agreed with the plastic stuff but I also think a lot of korean girls look like that.

I don't think Kim So Eun has had plastic surgery.

http://www.allkpop.com/2010/09/kim-so-euns-childhood-photos-revealed

She looks pretty much the same, even in her baby pictures!

I think part of what makes all these actresses look so much alike is the styling - hair, make up, clothes....all pretty much the same looks.

yeah, i agree. although i have not seen yet park min young, i knew that shin se kyung and kim so eun looks very much alike. i have my photos in them in my cellphone... Kim so eun's beauty is natural but for shin se kyung...i don't know yet......

I love Kim So-eun, and I hope she gets the chance to do a lead role soon. She's got the acting chops to handle it, and a very charismatic screen presence on top of that. I'd love to see her do a weekday miniseries.

I wonder why are you following this one so closely while ignoring hooray for love completely the cast is cuter and it will be a comedy instead of the usual family drama style according to the first preview

As much as I love KSE, I don't think she's fit for the role of Nana. Acting-wise, I'm sure she could pull it off, but in terms of her physical appearance, I think she's too petite and fragile to play the role of a bodyguard. And for some reason, I just couldn't imagine her throwing Lee Min Ho off her shoulder just like how Min Young does during their judo lessons. Lol.

I like her.I think she did fine with A Windy Day.I watched it raw and she's improved with experience.

However,won't she be calling Ryu Jin ajusshi off screen?That is too too weird to imagine.I can imagine a romantic interest calling the guy by name or oppa.But once the girl calls you ajusshi the age difference is too vast.

Anyway...thanks for the news.

LOL it kinda reminds me of how her character in A Good Day addressed Jin Yi Han as ahjussi. Yeah, I guess she'll be calling hin ahjussi. Lol I heard Goo Hara calls Lee Min Ho ahjussi offscreen.

another drama in which she falls for the older guy >.< sigh, she needs to fall in love with someone around her age already! (a la BOF :))

also, has she grown her hair back yet? i think the reason she's been MIA is cos she's not too comfortable with short/blonde hair? just a theory.

I'm going to be feeling so down after All That Glitters/Sparkling/Twinkle Twinkle ends. It's been such an awesome drama: so well written, directed, performed and produced. Hopefully this drama will be just as good.

My BIAS finally joins, how can I am not happy with this news? I've been waiting her to comeback on screen again for how long? A year? yeah it's been a year already since "A Windy Day".

I fell in love with her acting in BOF, she should've given more chance to prove that she's one of talented young actresses exist in Korea. I'm more amazed when I watched Empress Chun Chu as young Chae Si Ra, I feel sad because she seems being underrated. Hopefully she will get more limelight in the future.

I will watch this drama solely for her. :D

The premise doesn't sound like it'd be too interesting to watch, especially with the whole family rivalry on both sides of the love square. Such a shame since I really do love Kim So Eun and would prefer to see her in something that's more developed.

How freaky !!! Earlier today I was watching random cuts of the Windy Day Daily drama she was in and thinking to myself when is she going to comeback and do a drama again and then this article appears lol. Dramabeans always seems to have the answer ^^

It'll be cool to see KSE in a different role this time around, being the second lead actress I wonder if her character will go down the same path and be one of those evil/clingy types. Only time will tell :)

same here! I was actually kind of glad that both of them weren't doing any drama, but lo and behold, this came up. I guess I just have to wait for a few more years before Bumsso reunites. Nonetheless, I'm curious as to how she'll pull off her new character.

I still hope that this is not one of those long dramas so that she can reunite with Kim Bum already! Waahh I just can't let them go.

Acting with any of the cast from BOF will always remind us of BOF. I do think Kim So Eun has the acting chops. She just need to expand that by being in a variety of roles and more confidence in herself.

Oh noooo. Not another ahjussi pleaaassse. Aargh why can't they just pair her off with Kim Bum??? or at least someone withing her age range?

Nevertheless, based on the synopsis, it seems that it's a case of one-sided love on her part. I just wish that the older man doesn't end up with her. And no kissing scenes for them please (Lol even though it comes with the title). Let's just save those thousand kisses for the main couple.
