On October 21, a representative from the drama’s production company, SM C&C, announced, “Lee Yeon Hee confirmed her role in the drama,” and added, “We are in the final stages of casting the male lead role.” This will be Lee Yeon Hee’s first drama in six months after her brief appearance on MBC’s “Gu Family Book.”

Meanwhile, Lee Yeon Hee finished filming for the movie “Marriage Blue,” which will be in theaters on November 21. She will spend the remaining of 2013 filming for the drama.
“Miss Korea” is projected to begin airing in December.
