There is finally some major breaking news in Jung So Min‘s acting career and it couldn’t have come at a better time and in such a great potential project. Jung So Min has been confirmed to join the cast of Big Man with Kang Ji Hwan and Daniel Choi. She will be playing the younger sister to Daniel Choi’s character, which makes her a chaebol heiress character in this drama. I hope it’s a completely different personality than anything resembling her chaebol heiress character in Bad Guy with Kim Nam Gil. Hhhhmmmm, from Bad Guy to Big Man, Jung So Min sure picks projects with similar names. Jung Ryeo Won was in talks to be the female lead in Big Man but she ended up passing on the project. However, and it’s still unclear at this point, I don’t know if Jung So Min’s role was the one that was offered to Jung Ryeo Won or another role. Ergo, I don’t know if Jung So Min is the female lead or second female lead, though I’m thinking probably the latter. I really don’t care as long as the role is interesting. This would be Jung So Min’s first prime time drama role since she switched agencies and joined SM Entertainment. Last year she did the one-episode KBS drama special You Came to Me and Became a Star opposite Kim Ji Suk which I skimmed through and the last drama I’ve watched with her was the jTBC cable romance Can We Get Married with Sung Joon. I really love Jung So Min but her acting career feels like a series of stops and starts and no consistent upward trajectory of roles and projects. Here’s to hoping the new agency, the new year, and the new drama will bring her back to acting on a more steady basis. I never imagined her acting opposite Kang Ji Hwan before but now that the prospect is out there I couldn’t be more excited. Have some pretty pics from Jung So Min’s recent magazine pictorials, she did a Winter themed one for The Celebrity where she’s dressed like the Snow Queen, and even more recently she graced the pages of Marie Claire Korea for a Spring ensemble photo shoot that feels like a breath of warm air.
