Lee Jung-shin, Jung Da-bin join My Sassy Girl

Finally, we’re moving on in the casting process for SBS’s sageuk drama remake of My Sassy Girl, which seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time casting its lead actress (and then changing its mind in the end anyway). Now the drama is adding CNBLUE’s Lee Jung-shin (Cinderella and the Four Knights), who’s reportedly very close to finalized, as well as child actress Jung Da-bin (Flower in Prison, She Was Pretty).

My Sassy Girl will be Lee Jung-shin’s first leading role in a broadcast network show; he’s got a prominent role in tvN’s upcoming Cinderella and the Four Knights, but that’s a cable drama. He won’t be the main lead here — that would be Joo-won — but it sounds like he’ll be among the primary characters, playing Kang Joon-young, one of the most charismatic men in the palace who has a kindly demeanor but can turn a person’s heart to ice with one look. He’s described as an upright man who’s educated in the classics and fluent in multiple languages.

Meanwhile, Jung Da-bin has been cast to play little sister to Joo-won’s character Gyun-woo; she’s named Gyun-hee and yearns to love freely. She possesses a cute and cheerful personality and likes to poke her nose into all of her oppa’s affairs. Heh, that’s a role I can see Jung Da-bin filling easily: annoying in an adorable way (or adorable in an annoying way?). Both she and Lee Jung-shin have done sageuk before, so this won’t be entirely new territory for them.

Based on the famous 2001 movie of the same name, this drama version of My Sassy Girl takes the basic beta-male-falls-for-boisterous-girl romance and sets it in the Joseon era, where the sassy girl is now a troublemaker princess. The drama is aiming for a broadcast on SBS in early 2017 and is still searching for a leading lady; the most recent news was that an offer was out to Oh Yeon-seo (Come Back, Ajusshi).

Out of topic, but Lee Jung-shin and Nam Joo-hyuk really should play brothers in a drama. They look too much alike! I swear i thought it was NJH when i first saw the picture above...

They even acknowledge their resemblance. Lee Jungshin posted a photo with Nam Joohyuk on his Instagram (I think it was taken when the modelled together for 2015 S/S Seoul Fashion Week).

I was excited when Kim Joohyun was casted (woori Bulja) but not anymore. If Jungshin confirmed for this and has longer screen time (plus great storyline), I maybe reconsider to watch this drama.

Lee jungshin first ever second lead role with the king of the rattings Jowon!!!! ouch!!
The description of lee jungshin role for a minute I imagine Jung Yonghwa for the role, He is more suitable for potraying the role because he just soo freaking good In The three musketters, His good acting skills and his sexy charismatic aura, and that damn handsome face with pretty costumes!!!
After so many time back to back to dramaland playing supporting role now it's your turn after Minhyuk on Entertainerssss, heuheuheu CN blue dramas attack lately, without Lee Jonghyuns LOL!!!
