Yoo In Na Grabs First Lead Role in ‘Queen In Hyun’s Man’
Yoo In Na will be coupled with Ji Hyun Woo in her first ever lead role for tvN’s upcoming drama Queen In Hyun’s Man.
The producers of Queen In Hyun’s Man revealed through press releases issued on March 14 that ‘Yoo In Na has been cast as the female lead for the drama’, and that she ‘plans to team up with Ji Hyun Woo’.
Queen In Hyun’s Man is to be about a romance that stretches across a 300 year time slip which brings the handsome Joseon man Kim Boong Do (Ji Hyun Woo) to the year 2012, where he falls in love with the actress Choi Hee Jin (Yoo In Na), who′s acting as Queen In Hyun for the drama ‘New Jang Hee Bin’.
Screenwriter Song Jae Jung, of Soonpoong Clinic, You Can’t Stop Them and the High Kick series, and director Kim Byung Soo of Chosun Police and Vampire Prosecutor, have come together to put together yet another issue-making piece.
The fact that this is Yoo In Na′s first lead role since her debut is especially contributing to the anticipation for the drama. She will be playing the role of an unpopular actress who never managed to get any good roles in her five year-long career, but just as she is about to rise to stardom, meets with the Joseon man Kim Boong Do.
“I’m looking forward to my first lead role,” Yoo In Na said. “The bright character of actress Choi Hee Jin is similar to my own personality, and I think I’ll be able to enjoy shooting [the drama] because I can relate to the things she goes through as an actress. Please look forward to it.”
Producer Kim Young Kyu of Queen In Hyun’s Man said, “I believe it was a perfect casting decision as the Choi Hee Jin role fits Yoo In Na’s charms 100 percent. I expect her lovely charms to grab the viewers’ attention.”
Queen In Hyun’s Man is scheduled to start airing mid-April.
