Ex-Wonder Girl Ahn So-hee to join tvN drama Heart to Heart
The upcoming tvN drama Heart to Heart, which is the first project to come from Coffee Prince director Lee Yoon-jung after her jump from MBC to cable, is set to add Ahn So-hee, perhaps better known as simply Sohee of the Wonder Girls, to its cast.
It won’t be the lead part, but the younger sister to the hero. The show is described as a romantic comedy set in a psychiatric ward, and the heroine disguises herself as a grandma because she has a condition that causes herself to blush uncontrollably. Choi Kang-hee has been offered the lead, while Lee Dong-gun has since declined the part of the hero who harbors trauma from his brother’s death.
So-hee is reportedly in the final stages of negotiating, so while the casting isn’t yet confirmed, it sounds like there’s a good likelihood of it happening. I can’t say that I’m much of a fan but she’s still inexperienced as an actress and has room to grow, so we’ll have to see how she develops. She’s acted in a few projects, such as a Drama Special segment last year and the 2008 movie Hellcats, but with the Wonder Girls no longer active, she’s been out of the spotlight for a while. This is her first project after officially leaving the Wonder Girls, and she intends to focus on her acting career under new management, BH Entertainment.
Heart to Heart will air as a Friday-Saturday drama on tvN, to follow the just-premiered Misaeng. It premieres in January.
