On March 15, a source from Shin Hye Sun’s agency YNK Entertainment confirmed that the actress will play the female lead in SBS’s “Hymn of Death.”
Her character Yun Sim Deok is the first female soprano to achieve fame in Korea. The drama “Hymn of Death” is a two-part series that will follow the tragic love story of Yun Sim Deok and genius playwright Kim Woo Jin.
As previously announced, Lee Jong Suk accepted the role of Kim Woo Jin without receiving a guaranteed fee for his appearance.
Shin Hye Sun previously played a minor role in the drama “School 2013” starring Lee Jong Suk, so the two actors will be reuniting as leads after approximately five years.
According to Shin Hye Sun’s agency, they will begin filming for “Hymn of Death” in mid-April.
