Actress Shim Eun Kyung has officially been cast as the lead female role in the upcoming Korean remake of popular Japanese drama “Nodame Cantabile.”
According to TV Report on July 29, “Shim Eun Kyung has finally been confirmed to star in the Korean version of ‘Nodame Cantabile.’”
With Shim Eun Kyung’s outstanding acting abilities and cute appearance, she was chosen as the most desired actress for this particular role and received endless ‘love calls’ from producers.
Previously, the actress had turned down the casting offer due to a conflicting schedule with filming for the movie “Waiting for You.” However, it seems that she is now able to take on the role, as she recently made adjustments to her original schedule in order to accommodate “Nodame Cantabile.”
Earlier, Girls’ Generation’s YoonA had been in talks for the same role, but ultimately decided to take up another role in a Korean-Chinese movie “Zai Jian Ani,” as the lead female, Ani.
Shim Eun Kyung will be joining actor Joo Won, Tiny-G’s Dohee, and Bae Yoon Sik, who have all been confirmed to star in “Nodame Cantabile,” which will begin airing this coming October.
