Jo Yoon Hee in Talks for Lead Role in KBS Drama “The King’s Face”

Actress Jo Yoon Hee very well might be embarking on her first official historical drama (excluding “Hometown Legends“) for KBS’The King’s Face.” The same role was earlier declined by actress Son Ye Jin who wanted to focus on filming for a movie.

Jo Yoon Hee, whose most recent role was last year’s MBC weekend drama “Scandal: A Shocking and Wrongful Incident,” is in talks for the role of Kim Ga Hee, who is loved by both Gwanghae and Seonjo. Her agency explained earlier today that they have had positive discussion with the producers and that the final meeting with the director will be happening today.

“The King’s Face” is a drama that has been two years in the making and will start airing this November on KBS after the drama “Iron Man.”
