Actress Yoo In Na is said to be positively considering a role in SBS’ Wednesday-Thursday drama “My Lover From The Stars” (working title).
Her agency YG Entertainment stated on October 15, “Yoo In Na received an offer to play the role of Yoo Se Mi in ‘My Lover From The Stars’ and she is still in talks with the production team. She is positively considering the offer, but nothing has been finalized.”
“My Lover From The Stars” is being written by scriptwriter Park Ji Eun (KBS drama “You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly”) and directed by PD Jang Tae Woo (SBS drama “Tree With Deep Roots”). Previously titled “The Man From The Stars,” the production earlier nabbed Jeon Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun in leading roles, making it their second collaboration since movie “The Thieves” (2012).
“My Lover From The Stars” tells the romance story of Do Min Jun (Kim Soo Hyun), an alien who landed on earth 400 years ago during the Joseon dynasty, and rude Hallyu top star Cheon Song Yi (Jeon Ji Hyun). The backdrop of the drama is the sighting of an unidentified object in 1609, as recorded in the annals of the Joseon dynasty.
The drama’s production company HB Entertainment confirmed on October 16 that actor Park Hae Jin has been confirmed to be joining the cast. He will play a chaebol heir Lee Jae Kyung, with his brother Lee Hwi Kyung being engaged to Cheon Song Yi. Lee Jae Kyung will likely play an influential role in the relationship between Cheon Song Yi and Do Min Jun.
Park Hae Jin’s agency WM Company revealed, “We felt that the character of Lee Jae Kyung has a lot of charm,” and “We have a confidence in the production hence we decided to join the cast.”
“My Lover From The Stars” is slated to begin airing in December.
