Now THIS is casting I’m happy about: Kim Min-seo has just been added to MBC’s upcoming Secret Agent War, playing a spy alongside Joo-won and Choi Kang-hee. Yay!
Kim Min-seo always rocks her roles, whether she’s being evil (as The Moon That Embraces the Sun’s dark moon and princess, not to be confused with moon-princess), or… uh, slightly less evil as the bitchy fashion designer in Baby-Faced Beauty. But she can do good characters as well, like her badass gisaeng Chosuni in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, or the sweet dead girl in Bad Guy. Basically, she’s way too good to be still playing supporting roles. When is she gonna get her heroine part?
In Secret Agent War, Kim Min-seo will play Shin Sun-mi, a rookie agent who’d rather die than show herself to be weak, who dreams of becoming a “fierce elite woman.” Her trademark trait: zero coyness. Awesome. She grew up with brothers, and that honed her survival instinct, ha. It also toughened her into putting on a strong facade at all times, though she is devoted to those she cares about and trusts.
As a newbie in the country’s intelligence ranks, that probably makes her close to Joo-won’s level, since he’s also a younger agent, with Choi Kang-hee playing the older, more experienced agent. Since Choi’s gonna fall into a romance with our hero, I’m going to expect (based on the Dramaland Rules of Conduct) that the two ladies might be up for a little rivalry.
Secret Agent War premieres on MBC in January. Woohoo!
