Choi Ji Woo ultimately passed on the role but Kim Ha Neul has such a similar vibe it’s a seamless swap for me. Even bigger news is this being Kim Ha Neul’s first drama in four years since A Gentleman’s Dignity in 2012, that being one of Kim Eun Sook‘s comparatively lower rated dramas but still a sold hit.

KBS may have more reason to want to win the ratings battle since there was tug-of-war over the Jealousy before it eventually landed with SBS.
