Yoon Eun-hye focuses on drama before movies
Yoon Eun-hye has refuted rumors that she is taking on a new movie, saying that she is concentrating her efforts first to the drama series Lady Castle.
She had been reported as signing on to the movie Yeoudeung [여우등], but her rep explains that while it’s true they had discussed her taking the part, they have not accepted. She received the offer last year but has not made a decision, although the project remains on her list of possibilities. However, she will not decide on a film project until she is done with her drama series. (This is in character with Yoon; while she perhaps is not the most skilled actor, she has been praised for committing fully to her characters, which is why I find them engaging.)
In Lady Castle, a poor man disguises himself as a housekeeper/manager of a rich house with an eye on the family’s hidden slush fund. He falls in love with the haughty second daughter (of three), “Noh Yura,” played by Yoon. According to the actress’s rep, the male lead and director have yet to be confirmed.
Meanwhile, Yeoudeung sounds like an interesting project, should she take on the lead role of a lovable musical actress — it is to be directed by Heo In-mu of films Herb and Love So Divine and is described as a mystery-melodrama.
