Actor Hyun Bin has been casted to be the leading actor of the KBS 2TV drama series Noon Eui Yeo Wang (Queen of Snow)’ which is scheduled to air this coming November.
Noon Eui Yeo Wang (Queen of Snow) is a sad fairy-tale like love story about a genius boxer fighting against a terminal disease and a daughter of a wealthy family that meet and fill each other’s hearts. Hyun Bin has been casted for the role of the lead male character Han Tae Woong.
Tae Woong used to be labeled a boxing genius, but is now a high school drop-out that works as a sparring partner at a third-class boxing gym. Lackluster and without a dream, he one day meets a woman and feels destined love.
The drama has also gathered attention due to the participation of writers Kim Eun Hee and Yoon Eun Gyeong who were part of the team of Winter Sonata as well as the producer and director Lee Hyeong Min of I’m Sorry, I Love You.
Lee Hyeong Min commented as the reason for casting, “I thought Hyun Bin would be the perfect fit for the role of the ‘unfortunate genius’ Han Tae Woong who, while possessing pureness, must also be able to express childish rebelliousness. Through two characters that hold a twisted view of the world, the drama will tell a beautiful yet sad story that sets it apart from former trendy drama series.”

doozy: Hyun Bin filming a new drama?! Woot woot! No news yet of who the leading lady will be. Many fans are hoping for Hyun Bin to be paired with Song Hye Gyo in a drama, although it doesn’t necessarily have to be this one. Heck, there’s even an online petition for this coupling. However, I don’t think the chances of that happening are high for this drama as Song Hye Gyo is currently busy preparing for her movie. We’ll stay tune for news on the remaining cast members.
Once again, the storyline revolves around a main character whose remaining days are numbered and is trying to achieve a goal, similar to I’m Sorry, I Love You. Although I did not like Winter Sonata and I’m Sorry, I love You (despite its many praises) and the storyline here seems to be unoriginal, I’ll watching anything that Hyun Bin stars in. He’s a good actor and makes for lovely eye candy! Samshiki, bbashya!
