Kim So Hyun Confirms Her Next Drama Project
Kim So Hyun will be returning to the small screen!
On April 3, the actress’s agency, E&T Story Entertainment, confirmed that Kim So Hyun would be appearing in the KBS drama “Mung Bean Chronicles” (working title).
“Mung Bean Chronicles” is based on the webtoon of the same name and tells the story of Jeon Nok Du, a young man who doesn’t want to get married and disguises himself as a woman to infiltrate a mysterious women-only community, and a young woman named Dong Dong Joo, who does not want to become a gisaeng. It is a romantic comedy set in the Joseon dynasty.
Kim So Hyun will be playing the role of Dong Dong Joo, a prickly gisaeng-in-training. She is clumsy and hot-tempered and has no sense of rhythm or music, but she has the ability to make anything when given a tool and is known as the “Jang Young Sil” of her village. She isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind, but harbors a secret that she can’t tell anyone, and her life is thrown into chaos when the suspicious Nok Du comes into the picture.
The production staff of “Mung Bean Chronicles” stated, “Dong Dong Joo is a character written for Kim So Hyun. She embodies the role perfectly, but also brings her own color and charm to the character. Her casting is like a gift from the heavens. Please look forward to the casting news for Nok Du, who will be her onscreen partner.”
“Mung Bean Chronicles” is expected to start airing in September.
