Kim Woo Bin and Kang Sora Currently Looking Over Hong Sisters’ New Drama
Kim Woo Bin and Kang Sora are looking over writer team Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran (Hong sisters)’s new project.
An affiliate of SidusHQ, Kim Woo Bin’s agency, told Newsen on February 25, “Kim Woo Bin has recently been asked to star in MBC’s upcoming drama Jejudo Gatsby (tentative title) and is currently discussing his appearance in the drama. His appearance has not been confirmed.”
An affiliate of Will Entertainment, Kang Sora’s agency, told Newsen, “We’re positively considering Jejudo Gatsby but we’re not in the stage to confirm it yet.”
Kim Woo Bin starred in SBS’ The Heirs in 2013, leaving a firm impression with his acting, and has recently starred in Friend 2, The Technicians and Twenty, proving both his acting skills and popularity.
Having caught attention recently by starring in tvN’s Misaeng, Kang Sora has successfully acted opposite numerous popular actors in their 20s, including Lee Jong Suk and ZE:A’s Im Si Wan, which has been gathering more interest on her possibly acting opposite Kim Woo Bin.
Jejudo Gatsby is a romance drama set in Jejudo, directed by Park Hong Gyun PD and written by the Hong sisters. It was previously known to be a time slip drama but the synopsis has recently been edited to be a romance drama set in Jejudo. It has been reported that its comical elements have been intensified compared to before.
Park Hong Hyun PD and the Hong sisters worked together for MBC’s The Greatest Love in 2011 and have recently been carrying out the planning and casting process for Jejudo Gatsby. The Hong sisters became star writers through the projects such as Master’s Sun, Big, You’re Beautiful and more while Park Hong Gyun PD directed Queen Seon Deok and New Heart.
Meanwhile, Jejudo Gatsby will begin in May, following MBC’s Angry Mom, which is set to air following Kill Me Heal Me.
