Friend’s Jung Yumi joins cast of Dong Yi
Jung Yumi is the latest addition to MBC’s big historical drama Dong Yi, joining Han Hyo-joo, who plays the titular water-maid-turned-concubine; Ji Jin-hee as king; Lee So-yeon as a scheming, more senior concubine; and Bae Soo-bin playing Daddy Long Legs yet again to Han.
This Jung Yumi is the actress from Friend, Our Legend, not to be confused with that other Jung Yumi (of Chaw and Que Sera Sera). Her character, described as kind and good, works in the king’s residential quarters and becomes caught up in an incident that leaves her shamed.
The drama will follow Pasta on Mondays and Tuesdays, and will premiere in March.
