as amazing as Kim Soo Hyun is at writing this beautiful drama, the cast
is equally as skilled and compelling. This cast was called “Kim Soo
Hyun’s army” for its’ list of veteran stars and promising new comers!
The cast included veterans Kim Rae Won in his first drama since his
release from the military, SooAe most recently seen in “Athena,” Kim Hae
Sook as Ji Hyung’s mother struggling with her sons decision to be with a
woman destined to forget him, Lee Sang Woo as Seo Yeon’s cousin whose
role was more of a brother to Seo Yeon, and Lee Mi Sook as Hyang Gi’s
mother who struggles to keep her friendship with Kim Hae Sook’s
character in spite of her hatred of her son for leaving Hyang Gi. Newer
faces on the cast were Jung Yoo Mi, whose portrayal of a naïve young
bride left before her wedding won the hearts of many viewers; Park Yoo
hwan the younger brother of JYJ’s Park Yoochun, portrays Seo Yeon’s
brother Moon Kwon and is there for every painful moment of Seo Yeon’s
disease. If you’re a fan of Korean music you might be surprised to see
that Park Ji Hyung’s coworker, Sohn Suk Ho is played by Alex from
Clazziquai! Even amongst their sunbae actors the younger actors too put
on performances worthy of praise, and the response for the show was
just as positive!
