Romance Time Skip K-Film Similar Completes Cast of Yeo Jin Gu, Choi Yi Hyun, Kim Hye Yoon, Na In Woo, and Bae In Hyuk

Okay, now I’m getting annoyed and I really was fine with Kim Hye Yoon being like a supporting actress role in Snowdrop to newbie Jisoo but now it’s getting ridiculous. On what planet is she is the second lead to Choi Yi Hyun, who granted broke out with All of Us are Dead and prior to that was part of successful ensembles in Hospital Playlist. But by all accounts she’s still not the best actress around, growing for sure and getting lead roles such as in School 2021 is all fine and dandy. But I’m lamenting the state of K-ent casting when genuine talent gets second billing to…….buzz. The casting is finalized for the upcoming film Similar (also called Agreement) and is reportedly a remake of the 2000 film Ditto which starred Kim Ha Neul and Yoo Ji Tae. It’s a time slip scenario but gender switched for this remake, where the female lead in the present connects with the male lead in the past through a ham radio. In addition to Kim Hye Yoon and Choi Yi Hyun, the male leads are Yeo Jin Gu, Na In Woo, and adding Bae In Hyuk, so lots of trendy stars but the stacking of the names rankles me for sure. It doesn’t matter who is the OTP in the story, ultimately I hope Kim Hye Yoon accepted because her role was great regardless of screen time.
