Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk for “Fated to Love You” Script Reading, Choi Woo Shik Joins Cast
The wheels are turning for MBC’s upcoming MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama “Fated to Love You” starring Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk.
Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara are reuniting in a new drama 12 years after starring together in SBS drama “Successful Story of a Bright Girl.”
“Fated to Love You” is a remake of a 2008 Taiwanese drama of the same name. The drama achieved historically high average ratings of 10%, with peak ratings hitting 14.6%, in Taiwan. This would be equivalent to a rating of 70% in Korea. The drama will be produced by Number Three Pictures (“Arang and the Magistrate”) and directed by Lee Dong Yoon (“Queen’s Classroom,” “The Greatest Love”).
Choi Woo Shik, most well-known for his role in the drama “Rooftop Prince,” joins the main cast of Jang Nara, Jang Hyuk, Choi Jin Hyuk, Jung Eun Pyo, and Wang Ji Won. Choi Woo Shik will play the role of Lee Yong, the younger half-brother of hero Lee Gun, played by Jang Hyuk. Lee Yong is Lee Gun’s rival, fighting to be heir of the family business with hilarious results due to his immaturity.
“Fated to Love You” is slated to air this summer following the completion of Kim Myung Min’s “A New Leaf” in July.
