Chae Rim returns to All About Eve in special appearance

The role that made Chae Rim a star was the 2000 Hallyu hit All About Eve, which is now getting a Chinese remake starring Chuno‘s Jang Hyuk, and she’ll have a special appearance in the new drama as well.

The Korean miniseries was a huge hit and paired Chae Rim with Jang Dong-gun, while pitting her against devious rival Kim So-yeon, the latter of whom knocked it out of the park portraying the quintessential backstabbing second lead in the role based on Eve of the original Hollywood film. Jang Hyuk will take the Jang Dong-gun role — a gentle Prince Charming of a PD who was Chae Rim’s boss at the broadcast station where they worked — while the rest of the cast will be played by Chinese actors. Chae Rim’s role has been cast with Zhu Dan; Kim So-yeon’s will be played by Cheryl Yang.

It’s not yet clear what kind of character Chae Rim will play in her cameo (I’ll bet it’s an anchor at the broadcast station, but that’s just a guess). China’s version of All About Eve will air in September.

Meanwhile, Chae Rim just wrapped up her latest drama, the feel-good Oh My Lady with Choi Siwon in which she played an ajumma who works for (and eventually develops a rapport with) a spoiled top star. She has not yet announced a follow-up project.

Eh... approaching this with LOTS of hesitation. Not that I don't like some of the people, it's just that... I mean, why did they have to choose the Meteor Garden 2 PD?!

Also, I think I'm having a hard time visualizing Jang Hyuk as the Jang Donggun character when he just did a rough character in Chuno. LOL. There's like a contrast in images right there, hah.

Ooh, this will be fun to see!
I rarely keep up with Chinese films/dramas, so I probably won't be keeping up with this. But I might catch up here and there to see how Zhu Dan will take over Chae Rim's role.

@A. OHHH YEAH. Not just in Chuno, but he's had several roles where he's more "rough" than gentle. Ooh, this will be interesting.

A bit OT, but I really want to see Chae Rim in a new non-ajumma drama soon as well. I actually didn't care much for her role in Oh My Lady. Not Chae Rim herself, but her character. It's like woman become more simple and start acting like really old grandmas and such as they age and become the stereotypical "ajumma". I'm not much of a feminist, but there's a lot of chic ajummas out there too. Chae Rim has been doing a lot of ajumma roles lately, and I want her in something new!

Oh, I know what character she's going to play! It's actually more of a homage than anything else - If I'm not mistaken, she'll play the part of Jang Hyuk's first love who will die after being struck by a terrible illness, leaving room for Zhu Dan to enter his heart.

AAE is such a classic that should not be remade. The 2000 AAE is simply a masterpiece, no remakes from any country can top it. It leaves too many memories to too many fans around the world even after 10 years..

Oh I remember watching All About Eve.
I liked Kim So-yeon's character more than Chae Rim's; found her more interesting even though she was evil.
I watched it as a kid but can still remember So-yeon's character even now.

I have been following this production of this drama quite closely. She will be the first/past love of Jang Hyuk and seems to have past away (there was a hospital scene) so that he moved onto the main lead Zhu Dan.

She only did one day of filming in Beijing. So it is really a cameo.

@13

All About Eve is an American classic that should not have been remade at ALL so if SK did why not allow others?

@#17

i don't give a damn about your American All about Eve classic and this China production is doing a remake based on the 2000 AAE korean drama, not your damn american movie/drama whatsoever... The 2000 AAE korean drama is by it's own, not a remake from any other movie/drama. Only the title could have been the same.

oh the hostility, abcdefg. Could have been nicer if someone was mistaken....

So yes the korean AAE is not a remake of the american classic, "all about eve", but it was loosely inspired by it...the rivalry between 2 women involved in the same profession, with one woman being really conniving and with a hidden past. So perhaps the writer thought that type of storyline was intriguing and wrote a drama around it and gave it the name "all about eve" as an homage. I can see why someone may be protective of both the korean and the american. they are both classics in their own ways. But since the entertainment industry is more about money than anything else, it's a win-win situation for both s.korea and china to remake AAE. Korea gets paid for selling the rights. And China can make money off a drama that was originally acted in by Chae-rim, who is very popular in China.

anyways, i can't say i'm satisfied with the casting...i love Jang Hyuk but he doesn't seem suited for the role. Perhaps he's tired of the intensity of his Chuno role and need a break and this drama will be great for him because he can also gain more recognition in China. Cheryl Yang seems too friendly for me to be the 2nd female lead. But Jang Hyuk is a great actor and and Cheryl Yang is pretty solid, so who knows. And Zhu Dan seems like a newcomer.... Anyways, I hope Chae-rim can shed some of the ajumma-ness for her short appearance here.

I like Chaerim, i always just find her extremely likable in her roles. I mean you can't help but root for her. While she is not as striking as some Korean actresses, she does have a face you don't get tired of.

How about bring Kim Jun Eun back for a cameo too? I almost forgot she was the anchor in the original.

Chae Rim will play a senior anchor who is/was in a relationship with Jang Hyuk's character in the drama. Her character will eventually die (in a car accident/ illness?), and the role was not in the original drama.

Anyway, it was said that Jang Hyuk personally contacted Chae Rim to have a cameo in the drama, even though they haven't even met. Weird that their first meeting happened in China.
