I can’t believe there is a potential for a home run casting with the upcoming K-drama adaptation of the 2002 hugely impactful J-dorama A Million Stars Falling From the Sky (Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi and also known as The Smile Has Left Your Eyes). The original starred Kimura Takuya in his prime opposite Fukatsu Eri and tells a dark, twisted romance police thriller of a yarn that is so riveting to watch despite the uncomfortable subject matter. The K-version has been in the works for the last year and this week announced that actress Jung So Min has been offered the female lead. Her debut drama was in Bad Guy which has elements of A Million Stars if you ask me, and frankly she’s overdue for a straight up dark melo and also her casting will solve half my worry that this version doesn’t have the acting chops to equal the original. Now please give her a worthy male lead!
