Honey Lee is Modern Farmer’s sassy village leader
Gorgeous actress and former Miss Korea Honey Lee (Shark, Pasta) has joined the fall weekend miniseries Modern Farmer, which will star Lee Hong-ki (Hundred Year Bride) and Park Min-woo (Flower Boy Ramyun Shop) as members of a rock band. When the group takes a break from music and sets up residence in a remote farming village, they’ll cross paths with Honey Lee, who’s been cast as the community’s first female, and youngest ever, leader. (Is anyone else imagining the two co-leads fist-pumping about the hot noona being cast?)
Honey Lee’s character is also Lee Hong-ki’s first love, but it’s unclear from the news whether the reunion is a dramaland coincidence or by band leader Lee Hong-ki’s design. She’s a vivacious and cheerful type who sets the mood for those around her, but is also a tough cookie who gallantly leads her village.
The actress said, “It’s been a long time, and I’m happy to return [to television] with an exciting project. I’m a little nervous to be in front of viewers again alongside my great fellow actors and the skilled staff, and I’m also worried about starting filming in the intense heat, but I will do my best with positive energy and a grateful heart. I’ll try hard to put on a good performance; please cheer me on.”
Modern Farmer will run for twenty episodes and will air on weekends after Feel-Good Day on KBS in October.
