Han Chae-ah out, Park Se-young offered Money Flower
Will this prove to be a casting boon or casting disaster? It’s been reported that the anticipated reunion between Jang Hyuk (voice) and Han Chae-ah (Introverted Boss) is no longer happening, but another reunion may occur. After Han Chae-ah turned down the offer for the female lead in weekend drama Money Flower, MBC sought out a replacement in Park Se-young (Whisper).
Park Se-young had actually been offered the role in the drama’s early planning stages, but had stated that she was reviewing other offers. Earlier reports announced that she had dropped out of the project altogether. However, most recent reports have reversed that statement; her agency, Hunus Entertainment, has said that Park is reviewing the script, while a source with MBC said she is in talks with them to appear.
The setup of Money Flower, much as the title suggests, is about the lives of individuals who believe they have ultimate power due to their wealth, but they are mistaken. In reality, their own greed for money controls them. Both Jang Hyuk and Lee Soon-jae (Yes, That’s How It Is) have confirmed their roles. If she ends up joining the cast, it will be Park Se-young’s second time working with Jang Hyuk after Beautiful Mind, where she played his coldly beautiful ex-girlfriend who was a rising doctor in his department. Their ending wasn’t too happy in that drama, but maybe it’ll be different in Money Flower.
This upcoming drama is set to broadcast in November, after the end of currently-airing Thief-nim, Thief-nom.
