Hwang Jung-eum cast as lead in new drama
Rising actress Hwang Jung-eum (Giant, High Kick Through the Roof) has been cast in her first leading role in the upcoming MBC drama Do You Hear My Heart. It’s not surprising that she’ll be headlining her own drama, with all the praise from her role in last year’s epic Giant, which earned her a New Star Award from SBS.
There’s rampant speculation about her leading man co-star, from Hallyu stars to ‘flower pretty boys,’ but I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough who she’ll be sharing the screen with. Her character in the drama is described as a Candy-type (OF COURSE), who is cheery and strong.
The team leading the production will be PD Kim Sang-ho of Fantasy Couple and writer Moon Hee-jung of Smile, You. Both upbeat, cheery comedies, so we can expect a similar tone I’m sure. I confess I’ve never liked Fantasy Couple, which was super hammy, but I’m in an optimistic mood, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed for a good springtime comedy.
