We reported about a month ago that Gong Hyo Jin and So Ji Sub were positively considering starring in a new Hong Sisters‘ drama and now we can finally report that it’s been confirmed! Anticipation was already high for the drama as it is being penned by the writer duo that brought the hits, “You’re Beautiful,” “My Girlfriend is a Gumiho,” and “Greatest Love,” but now it is even higher with the confirmation of these two talented actors.
The upcoming drama titled, “The Sun of My Master,” is about a woman who can see ghosts and the man who protects her. So Ji Sub plays the miserly, greedy, and conceited CEO Joo Joong Won, who measures all human relationships through money. Gong Hyo Jin will play the melancholy and tearful assistant Tae Gong Shil, who is able to see ghosts after an accident and thus suffers from insomnia. She lives a very reclusive and closed-off life due to her ability.
The story is being touted as “soul healing” drama that brings together very different types of people: one who can see and hear things that no one else in the world can and another who only hears and see things he wants too. As Joo Joong Won starts to believe in Tae Gong Shil’s claim of being able to see ghosts, these two people will grow together in faith and in character.
This will be the second time that Gong Hyo Jin has worked with the Hong Sisters after “Greatest Love.” This is the first time for So Ji Sub and will be his first romantic comedy in years since his 2002’s “We Are Dating Now.”
“The Sun of My Master” is expected to premier on SBS in August.
