I don’t think Kim Eun Sook is an award winning level of pure writer but her dramas are undoubtedly always worth a watch, whether to enjoy or kvetch or both. It’s no surprise that many of Korea’s top actors and actresses have chosen to star in her works, even Jeon Do Yeon who is considered the most legit true actress did a Kim Eun Sook drama. There are also a handful who have done more than one project with her and Song Hye Kyo is joining that crew with news of her signing on to Kim Eun Sook’s next drama. The ones in that small gang are: Kim Ha Neul (On Air, A Gentleman’s Dignity), Kim Jung Eun (Lovers, Lovers in Paris), Kim Go Eun (Goblin, The King: Eternal Monarch), Lee Min Ho (Heirs, The King: Eternal Monarch), and Hyun Bin (Secret Garden, A Millionaire’s First Love). I think it’s a smart collab for both and all eyes are on the male lead casting now. Honestly I think the lead will depend on the story and whether it needs to be similar age to Song Hye Kyo or notably younger. For example, both Goblin and Mr. Sunshine had intentional age disparity between the needs per the story concept. Taking out actors who are already doing other projects or have worked with Song Hye Kyo before, I’m going with Park Seo Joon as the right A-list lead who would be fun to see in a Kim Eun Sook drama.
