Hwang Jung Eum Turns Down Role in “Monster”

Sorry, Hwang Jung Eum fans – the actress has decided not to participate in MBC‘s upcoming drama “Monster.”

Despite initial reports that Hwang Jung Eum was indeed considering the role, her agency C-JeS Entertainment stated on January 21, “From the beginning, it was never confirmed that Hwang Jung Eum would be cast in ‘Monster.’ She was only in talks.”

Hwang Jung Eum was up for the role of the lead heroine. For now, it seems like she will be focusing on her upcoming wedding before taking on any more drama roles.

Meanwhile, while Seo Kang Joon was also considering a part in the drama, the role of the lead male went to Kang Ji Hwan. “Monster” is set to air after “Glamorous Temptation” wraps up in April.
