Kakao Webtoon Selects Cha Eun Woo, Han So Hee, and Lee Soo Hyuk as the Human Personas for the Upcoming Webtoon The Villainess is A Marionette

Okay, I think I just saw the perfect female lead casting for the upcoming K-drama adaptation of Korean webtoon Remarried Empress. Han So Hee as Navier! Why have I never seen it, and now I’ve seen it I can’t unsee it haha. Of course, if it was Han So Hee from before she got famous I could totally see her as the conniving Rashta as well, only because she’s done the mistress role before in The World of the Married. But as Navier she is even more perfect, strong and decisive and such a softie inside. Thanks to the commentary from my last Remarried Empress post I also got new nicknames to use whenever I was to insult two total turds: T-rashta and Sovie-shit. Anyways, sorry for the digression before getting to the main subject – an upcoming Kakao webtoon project called The Villainess is a Marionette is coming out and three popular stars were chosen as the human personas of the three leads, with Han So Hee as the female lead, Cha Eun Woo as the male lead, and Lee Soo Hyuk as the second male lead/antagonist. They all look so perfect nnnngggg this fills the manga lover first hole in my heart.
