I guess the denials from Han So Hee‘s agency about her being the leading lady of upcoming OCN supernatural thriller drama Island were indeed true because a few days later and we now indeed have a new lead and it’s not her. K-actress Lee Da Hee will be taking over the role vacated by Seo Ye Ji after her swift fall from grace for being revealed to be essentially a super controlling and manipulative person. Not a crime against humanity in the least but rather a lot to just sweep under the rug with a “shrugs, no big deal”. Clearly the drama production is looking for a particular type of actress that fits the image and aura of the character as drawn in the manhwa and Lee Da Hee does fit that bill and I can see her having great chemistry with Kim Nam Gil. She’s really come a long way from her early days as the perpetual second female lead and I’m glad she’s earned her top billing status in the last few dramas to what will now be her most high profile drama project to date. The production can now start prepping for the summer kickoff to filming with an eye towards end of the year release.
