The name recognition and experience upgrade in the female lead in K-drama is like switching from JV to varsity overnight. K-actress Shin Mina is confirmed to make a return to the small screen as the leading lady in the political drama Aide. It would her first K-drama in 2 years since Tomorrow With You, which was meh for me and same with her drama prior to that Oh My Venus. I’m hoping this is third time the charm to break out of her poor drama picking slump and she’s got a very high profile leading man in Lee Jung Jae making his first drama comeback in over a decade. The first name attached to this drama is Elliya (Elijah) Lee who is really a supporting actress at best with her experience level but is coming off a buzzy drama playing the villainness in An Empress’s Dignity. I’m way more feeling the Shin Mina-Lee Jung Jae pairing as dueling political adversaries turned romantic. Aide will air on jTBC Fri-Sat after Beautiful World this June.
