2015: The Return of A-List Actresses to Kdrama
Here are the previews of their upcoming dramas.
1. Gong Hyo Jin – “Producers”
2. Ha Ji Won – “The Time I Loved You 7000 Days”
3. Kim Sun Ah – “Masked Prosecutor”
4. Song Hye Kyo – “Descendants of The Sun”
5. Soo Ae – “Mask”
6. Jang Na Ra – “I Remember You”
7. Lee Young Ae – “Saimdang, the Herstory”
Actresses below also possibly have drama comeback this year because they’re already offered roles.
1. Shin Min Ah
She’s offered the role in a drama “Let’s Have Dinner With Me”, a title I immediately associated with “Let’s Eat” because come on, the title is self-explanatory too right? “Let’s Have Dinner With Me” is described as realistic story of single working-class people and their shared love towards food. It’s also an adaptation from a webtoon and the leads are connected through eating and developing a relationship. I know Shin Min Ah in real life also loves eating and her role in Gumiho where she required to eat so much just too adorable beyond words. I’ll be happy if she takes the role of a foodie here, she’s been too long out of dramaland and only takes movie projects. If she accepts, hopefully with someone we can root for (some people suggest Ji Chang Wook and I’m not against it), I definitely watch this drama. The drama is slated to follow “Mask”, premieres sometime in August on SBS.
2. Moon Geun Young
Is Moonie considered A-list actress? Well, at least that’s how I feel. I got too excited when news broke earlier this month saying Moon Geun Young will comeback through “Chaebol’s Daughter”. Turned out, she rejected the role, the drama is still searching their titular chaebol’s daughter and Moon Geun Young is nowhere to be seen these days. She still has a movie to premiere this year, but her last drama was super boring “Goddess Of Fire” that I want to erase completely from my mind. Rumors on her DC Gallery, her Korean fansite, saying that she’s receiving offer for upcoming drama “I’m Sorry”. The drama is written by So Hyun Kyung, of dramas “49 Days,” “Two Weeks,” and “My Daughter Seo Young”. Personally I really love her dramas, especially 49 Days so no problem with me regarding the scriptwriter and the drama also will be pre-produced completely. So far I don’t want to get my hope high up because there’s no news regarding this, only rumor on her fansite. And even if there’s a news, Moonie could still possibly pull a Chaebol’s Daughter to us again.
Seems this year is a good year to see established and A-list actresses come back to dramaland. Even Go Ah Sung (considered movie star) is also doing a drama now! The only way to make it better this year is if Jeon Ji Hyun/Yoon Eun Hye/Son Ye Jin/Lee Yo Won also comes back to dramaland. Or Won Bin does a drama.
