Kim Ji Won in Talks for Kim Soo Hyun’s Leading Lady in Upcoming 2023 K-drama The Queen of Tears

A big casting news this week and I have a strong sense this casting will be the final one. Kim Ji Won is in talks to be the leading lady of the high profile K-drama The Queen of Tears, the next work from writer Park Ji Eun of Crash Landing on You. If she accepts she will join male lead Kim Soo Hyun who is doing his 3rd reunion with Park Ji Eun after doing You From Another Star and Producer written by her. The drama will have the two leads play a married couple so this isn’t a falling in love story like her previous drama OTPs. I think this is a great pairing, both age-appropriate and high profile leads coming off more serious dramas with Kim Ji Won in My Liberation Notes and Kim Soo Hyun with One Ordinary Day.
