Kim Ha Neul is in strong consideration to act alongside Jang Dong Gun, who will be making his first small screen come back in 12 years for the new SBS drama “A Gentleman’s Dignity.” Things are not confirmed yet but it is reported that Kim Ha Neul is positively thinking about joining the cast.
When Jang Dong Gun’s casting was not confirmed, many other actors were considered such as Kim Myung Min and Joo Jin Mo. The first episode was supposed to air in March but has now been pushed back to May. Jang Dong Gun, who recently finished filming overseas, was won over by writer Kim Eun Sook, who continuously asked him to join the cast.
Lee Na Young was strongly considered in the beginning, but she was not able to join due to time conflicts. Kim Eun Sook then made love calls to Kim Ha Neul, who acted in Kim Eun Sook’s past drama, “On Air” in 2008.
Kim Ha Neul is receiving a lot of love these days and is being called the “Queen of Romantic Comedies.” She also won awards for her movie, “Blind” last year, which made people acknowledge her acting skills as well. For these reasons, people say that she is well-suited to act alongside Jang Dong Gun.
“A Gentleman’s Dignity” is written by Kim Eun Sook, who has worked on “Lovers in Paris,” “On Air,” “Secret Garden” and other top hits. The drama will be about the love lives that revolve around good-looking and single men in their forties
