Kim Hee Sun is in talks to star in an upcoming SBS drama!
On September 20, a Korean news outlet reported that Kim Hee Sun would be playing the female lead in the new drama “Alice” (previously “Hotel Alice”). Joo Won confirmed earlier this year that he had been offered the male lead in the same drama and is still in talks for the role.
Later that same morning, Kim Hee Sun’s agency Hinge Entertainment clarified that while the actress did receive an offer to star in the drama, she has not yet officially accepted the offer.
“Kim Hee Sun is still in the process of reviewing her casting offer for ‘Alice,’ with a favorable outlook,” stated a representative of the agency. “We’re at the stage where all that remains is the fine-tuning of the final details.”
“Alice” will tell the story of a man and a woman who are separated by death, only to be reunited by overcoming the limits of time and space. Kim Hee Sun has been offered the role of Yoon Tae Yi, a genius physicist who holds the key to uncovering the secrets of time travel, while Joo Won has been offered the role of Park Jin Kyum, a detective who learns a hidden secret about himself while attempting to solve the mystery of time travel.
The drama is currently expected to air sometime in the first half of next year.
