It looks like we have our leading lady for the drama remake of My Sassy Girl. Kim Joo Hyun (Modern Farmer) will be starring alongside Joo Won (Yong Pal). She was chosen after open auditions were held with over 1800 women going for the role. Kim Joo Hyun is a somewhat newer actress with only a handful of credits to her name.
I actually loved her in her last supporting role in the drama Modern Farmer. She had a great mix of boldness and sweetness with solid acting to round out her performance. This role in My Sassy Girl will be quite the step up for her as she takes on her first lead role alongside the popular actor Joo Won. I like the pairing and am looking forward to this drama.
My Sassy Girl will be completely pre-produced and is looking to air in the beginning of 2017.
UPDATE 8/5/16: Kim Joo Hyun has stepped down from the lead role. Oh Yeon Seo has now been offered the starring role.
