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in a few projects, such as a Drama Special segment last year and the 2008 movie Hellcats, but with the Wonder Girls no longer active, she’s been out of the spotlight for a while.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.

It makes sense that lee dong gun would decline the part since the role probably hits too close to home since I don't think he ever got over his real life brother's death a few years ago.

Do not really have an opinion of Sohee as an actress but its a smart move for her to take a smaller role to develop her skills versus jumping into a lead role since although she is not new to entertainment she is still a relative rookie actress.

"The show is described as a romantic comedy set in a psychiatric ward." Also, the heroine will have double personality: Young & grandma (at least it's a choice here). So original... On paper, it's pass.

Whut is that premise? It's so weird that it reminds me of Iron Man in terms of absurdity!

BH entertainment? That's a sketchy agency but a really good one in finding their actors good roles. Go Soo, LBH, HHJ etc. Thats a really good list to go by so many this'll work out for So-hee.

Ah, well, at least she appears to have the measure of her own abilities and isn't grabbing for lead. Though let's be real, that probably has more to do with her reduced star power and lack of a pushy agency that loves to make talentless idols play lead roles in dramas and movies way beyond their league (JYP, I'm looking at you)

Good that Lee Dong-gun turned that role down, I can't imagine what they were thinking, offering it to him considering his personal history.

Sohee! I would watch this just to spy on her always impeccable fashion sense.

Is it strange I want the reunion train to keep on chugging and have Choi Kang-Hee accept and have Ji Subg as the leading man? Cause they were hilarious in Protect the Boss!

Or Lee Sun Kyun, who has starred opposite her in a drama and a movie, and no stranger to this PD. Probably not likely though since he is currently shooting his movie.

No wonder Lee Dong Gun declined. Would be difficult to stay cool in the role with the baggage reminder. Bummer, I was looking forward to LDG x CKH in a drama.
