Girlfriends and love interests added to Entourage


Ahn So-hee, Kim Hye-in

I’d wondered when we’d be getting more ladies in the Entourage cast, with only f(x)’s Amber named thus far; I know the show is heavily male-centric and more about the bromance and exploits among the boys of the entourage and their immediate circle of agents and industry types, but we can’t have a show about womanizing dudes and leave out the women, can we? Now we have two potential love interests with the likely addition of former Wonder Girl Ahn So-hee (Heart to Heart) and newcomer Kim Hye-in.

Kim Hye-in was cast earlier this week with headlines declaring her a surprising choice as leading lady, given her rookie status; she was a World Miss University winner in 2012 and is represented by Keyeast, but has literally zero credits. However, now that Ahn So-hee’s in the mix (she’s considering, but hasn’t finalized), it’s clear that So-hee will be the bigger lead, playing an actress and the first love to Seo Kang-joon, who plays the movie star main character (Vince in the original series). I recall Vince having zillions of girlfriends over the course of the show and no one true love, but I do expect the remake to hew a little more to the K-drama expectation of one primary loveline per character.

Kim Hye-in, meanwhile, will play the Sloan character, who in the original was the girlfriend to the movie star’s manager/best friend, Eric. She’s described as an interior designer who studied abroad and has a wealth of connections to the entertainment world via her mother, which gains her the access to become an interior designer to the stars. She’s an elegant and successful modern woman who’s able to balance both her career and her home life well, which I think is a pretty decent translation of the Sloan role.

In this version, Eric’s character has gone to Park Jung-min (You’re All Surrounded), with Lee Kwang-soo (It’s Okay, It’s Love) and Lee Dong-hwi (Answer Me 1988) rounding out the entourage. Jo Jin-woong (Signal) stars as Seo Kang-joon’s powerhouse agent.

Entourage will be 100 percent pre-produced and is working on securing a simultaneous broadcast in China; it doesn’t currently have a timeslot, but tvN intends to air it later this year.

I haven't stayed in the news surrounding Entourage so this is a little confusing. Has the main character gone to do the actor instead of the manager i.e. SKJ will be the lead?

I agree! After CITT, I have a lot of difficulty in investing in any show with SKJ, and that's a depressing consequence as I really enjoyed his role/character in the beginning of the series.... I'm staying away until it's over.

It's honestly unfair to blame the actor personally for his act on an imaginary role that you did not resonate with.I wish we can give more respect to the actors,and this is not just some other sites where knetz are hell bent on dragging each other and the actors/performers down.Respect should not be just reserved for our favorite actors right?

She is decent actress. I have watched her in movies before, but not in dramas. People said she was pretty decent at Heart to heart.

Aww,come on. I loved him in CITT. He brought life and freshness(like the rest of the drama) to a character that would have been a typical second lead with so much heart and sincerity even though I was team JungSeol and team better-character-development in general. I don't think it was his fault and find it unfortunate that he now inspires such cynicism.
Meanwhile,when are we gonna hear more news about that new Park Hae Jin drama? Seriously I need something,anything! Give me news! Give me hope!

Hi, there! Essentially I agree with you, I loved all the actors and thought they did a phenomenal job of bringing their characters to life, .....that is, up until it went from a psychological study of a budding college relationship over into romantic triangle territory. For the record, I'm not a fan in either camp PHJ vs. SKJ, instead I came into CITT as an open-minded fan of the webtoon, so the major shift in storyline was difficult to swallow. Is it SKJ's fault? Maybe not, but he did benefit at the expense of the story.

So, I doubt that 'Entourage' will suffer the same, as SKJ will be the lead, but I plan on waiting in the wings until the dust dies down and the show is over.

"Is it SKJ’s fault? Maybe not, but he did benefit at the expense of the story.'
Lol Mary you are basically blaming a person for the crime he did not commit.Is it his fault that the story went that way? And I am not even skj's fan.But it's really sad to see how everywhere there is hate comments on him,regardless it being any of his doing.Also I think he did his part quite well.This is the first time that I felt he did justice to his role.The drama did went down hill but that was mainly fault to the fact that they decided to make the drama when the webtoon was still in running.Blame it on the scriptwriter;/producer,not on the actors please.

I watched her act in Heart to Heart and for me, she acted quite well. After seeing her there, I accidentally saw RM on the episode where she guested and I was surprised to find out that her real-life character is pretty much the opposite of her character in Heart to Heart.

Honestly, I'm not that eager to watch this drama, partly because SKJ is the main lead. But maybe I will watch for their 'entourage' and JJW.

I'm excited for this tbh, so it's great to hear some names for the leading ladies besides Amber who I know nothing of. So-hee is decent in whatever I've seen of her, though really, same old of wishing an up and comer would get a chance.

But Sohee is starting all over again in the acting world. Even though she is known she been taking supporting role and slowly working it up. She haven't lead any drama/movie last I seem of her. And her acting is good and will continue to improve. Tbvh I choose her in any drama now a day over all these idols who get lead role and etc just because they trendy at the moment.

Do people really have to make the same tired jokes about SKJ everytime a piece of news about this drama is released?

seems like people still cannot let it go. I am too are very dissapointed on how CITT turned out since I was a huge fan of the webtoon. I was also a part of the team who hate SKJ for whatever the hell happened in that drama that he ended up appearing more than the main lead but lets be honest the piano joke is getting so lame right now. Just let go already. There is nothing left that we change about that disaster of a drama. I'm guessing a lot of people who keep on bashing SKJ are fans of PHJ. Don't get me wrong I'm a fan of him too but the joke is going too far already. There are no people that is more upset about the turnout of that drama except for the actor, webtoon author and webtoon fans. Keep on joking about piano will only make our bias look bad. Just stop already.

So tired of it, seriously. It would make sense to keep harping on it if Kang Joon had been bad/average in his CIIT role, but he wasn't? He bought a lot of heart to his character and he was immensely likeable and engaging, so people talking about him constantly usurping roles or how they will not watch because it's him need to move on. I mean obviously you don't have to watch anything you don't want to, but people specifically coming to his drama posts to say "I WILL NOT WATCH THIS GUY", uh, okay. It may make sense if you feel a terrible actor has been chosen for a role and thus "I will not watch because X in it" but SKJ isn't terrible so people not watching him on purely subjective grounds of dislike add nothing to the conversation.

Agree with you. I'm also tired of seeing the same jokes and comments. In fact, I feel bad for SKJ cuz I don't think he had a say in what went down for CITT. So, even though the drama didn't turn out well for the ending and PHJ got shafted, I find it unfair for ppl to bash SKJ or bring up the piano joke. Personally, I enjoyed SKJ in that role and it was my first time seeing him. I like PHJ as well and saw him before in MLFTS. I think he was awesome as Jung. It's too bad that whoever had the authority made CITT turn south. But if ppl keep blaming SKJ and seeing him in a negative light, then it's probably better if those ppl don't bother commenting. They can just choose not to watch him in anything and let ppl who do want to watch enjoy his shows. SKJ also put in his heart and efforts while acting. So, for that to be negated is really unfair since it's not like he purposely usurped the spotlight from PHJ. I understand ppl have different preferences and it's natural to like one actor over another. But I'd personally not spend time commenting on those that I don't like as much.

Yeaaa! Amber Unnie's acting at last! I love her. I'll definitely be in to see this one! And Lee Gwang-Soo? I sort of like the guy. He adds a touch of comedy and fun to wherever he is, be it a variety show, or a drama. I'm really looking forward to this one!

I mean, I'm in. It sounds fun and different. I'm sure it'll be way more "wholesome" than the original too; a show I can't bring myself to watch in it's entirety but have seen pieces of and was pretty intrigued.

I guess ASH will play Mandy Moore, while the newcomer will still be the bigger lead.
