JYP Entertainment’s young actress Shin Eun Soo and YG Entertainment’s solo rapper ONE are confirmed to be the leads in the upcoming romantic one-act drama “Anthology” (literal title).
“Anthology” begins with a grown woman reminiscing about her 17-year-old self as she comes across a collection of writings from her young days. A heartwarming story of her first love unfolds, serving as a present for lonely youths of this generation. The drama will be directed by Lee Yoon Jung who has also directed tvN’s “Argon” and “Cheese In The Trap.”
Shin Eun Soo, a rising actress best known for her appearance in “The Legend of the Blue Sea” playing Jun Ji Hyun‘s character as a child, is taking on the role of Shin So Yi. Shin So Yi is a posh girl from Seoul who comes to visit her grandparents in the countryside. Although her harsh words take people around her by surprise, she is actually a sensitive girl with scars yet to be healed. She has now become a teacher, all grown up, but discovering the anthology reminds her of her young days again, at which point the drama begins to unfold.
Rapper ONE, acting under his real name Jung Jae Won, will play the part of Jin Hyun. Jin Hyun is a country boy who is not only good-looking and smart but has a great personality as well. Shin So Yi and Jin Hyun will get closer to each other as the girl catches on to his secret.
The cast also includes Lee Eun Sam, Seo Hyun Woo, and Noh Susanna. Lee Eun Sam plays the role of Sung Ji, a classmate of Shin So Yi who has a crush on Jin Hyun. Seo Hyun Woo takes the part of Shin So Yi’s uncle Min Chul, while Noh Susanna will act out the character of Sun Hwa, Shin So Yi’s teacher as well as Min Chul’s girlfriend.
