Jang Shin-young joins melodrama My Spring Days
Jang Shin-young (Empire of Gold, Thorn Flower, The Chaser) is joining the upcoming MBC drama, My Spring Days, and will play a love rival who gets in the way of the pairing of the two leads, SNSD’s Sooyoung (Dating Agency Cyrano) and Kam Woo-sung (King Geunchogo).
The melodramatic plot will portray Sooyoung as a terminally ill young woman who is able to extend her life when she receives a heart transplant. She meets Kam Woo-sung, the widower of the woman whose heart she received, and they begin falling into a special kind of love.
Meanwhile, Jang Shin-young’s character wants Kam Woo-sung for herself, and she’ll do her best to redirect his attentions. She’s a coldhearted and sharp-thinking team lead in the PR department of a hospital, and is a favorite of hospital chairman Shim Hye-jin (Endless Love, Secret Love Affair). A beautiful, sensible woman, she is known for her eloquence.
Jang’s part doesn’t sound like a very winsome one, as the two leads are obviously meant to be together (his new flame has his deceased wife’s heart, for goodness’ sake). However, clues point to Jang being the first love of Lee Jun-hyuk (Equator Man) in the show, and having Lee Jun-hyuk moony-eyed over you would be a nifty consolation prize, indeed.
All of the actors mentioned have finally confirmed, and filming will begin shortly with Lee Jae-dong (I Miss You) at the helm and Park Ji-sook (Hero) at work on the script. My Spring Days will take Fated to Love You’s Wednesday–Thursday timeslot on MBC when the show concludes in mid-September.
