The return of old-school Hallyu stars Lee Young Ae and Song Seung Heon unfortunately hasn’t translated into a ratings win, but that doesn’t mean drama fans aren’t open to some of the first or second generation Hallyu stars returning to drama land. Gong Yoo‘s return in Goblin was a huge win and also a wonderful reminder of the incredible acting talents and charisma of the stars who delivered the memorable dramas from the last decade. Two such stars will be making a drama comeback this year in 2017, one already announced is Yoon Eun Hye who has been away from K-ent for three years now ever since her last drama Marry Him if You Dare (Mirae’s Choice). She has been reviewing scripts since the end of 2016 and is likely to return in the early second half of this year. Also returning is new mom Han Ga In who welcomed her first child with husband Yeon Jung Hoon in spring of 2016. She is also reviewing scripts and will pick her acting comeback soon which marks five years since being in the mega hit sageuk The Moon Embraces the Sun.
I’m dying for Yoon Eun Hye’s comeback and am actually happy to hear that Han Ga In is also returning.
