Recently, Lee Jae-wook (Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol) was confirmed as the lead in a new Hong sisters drama called Hwan Hon. Rookie actress Park Hye-eun (The School Nurse Files) stars opposite him in this fantasy drama about young psychics who handle the secrets of the universe. It’s been reported that the first script read already took place.
Apparently, various famous actresses auditioned for the female lead role, but in the end, Park Hye-eun was chosen for being a fresh face with solid acting abilities. I’m just glad to see Lee Jae-wook finally paired up with someone his own age, not that I didn’t enjoy all the delicious noona romances he’s been in.
As of yet, there haven’t been many details announced about the plot of this upcoming drama, but fantasy romances are pretty much the Hong sisters’ bread and butter (ex: Hotel Del Luna, Hwayugi, Master’s Sun) so I’m not too worried. The title may be a big hint as to what the drama will be about, as “hwan hon” refers to the return of a soul to the mortal plane.
Directed by Park Joon-hwa (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim), Hwan Hon is currently being negotiated to air on tvN.
