Small shifts and developments have occurred in the casting of drama ‘True Romance,’ which was previously called ‘Chaebol’s Daughter.’
Although Hyungsik was previously reported to be playing the lead, he is in fact the secondary character and now Sung Joon and Lim Ji Yeon have been confirmed to play the leading roles! This is a pretty big deal for both actors as Sung Joon’s constantly been playing secondary and this is the first drama for Lim Ji Yeon, who’s a rookie actress. In addition, UEE might be joining the drama, as well.
Sung Joon’s rep revealed on May 4, “Sung Joon is confirmed to appear in ‘True Romance.’ The title has changed from ‘Chaebol’s Daughter’ to ‘True Romance’ . . . Sung Joon is the main lead in SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama, ‘True Romance.'” Sung Joon also showed his gratitude for this opportunity and promised his best to develop himself.
Lim Ji Yeon’s rep likewise confirmed her appearance while UEE’s rep said, “UEE is reviewing her appearance in ‘True Romance.’ She’s not confirmed yet, but positively reviewing it.”
The drama will air after ‘Heard It Through the Grapevines’ in June.
