With a mega budget of 25 billion KRW invested into it, MBC “East of Eden” has just confirmed that actress Han Ji Hye will be joining the drama.
“East of Eden” talks about two brothers whose fates are crossed the very day they were born in the same hospital and their revenge. Lee Da Hae, Lee Yeon Hee, etc were recently confirmed to be in the drama with Han Ji Hye being the last to be added. Following her last role in KBS “I Hate You But It’s Fine”, Han Ji Hye will return to the screen swiftly playing the first love named Ji Hyun caught between Song Seung Hun, Yeon Jeong Hoon and Park Hae Jin characters.
According to screenwriter Na Yeon Sook
Han Ji Hye’s character is an important character that dictates the path that the main characters in the drama take. So the acting ability of this character must be very high. After some consideration, I and the director believe that Han Ji Hye would be able to bring out the emotional range of the character 100%.
The plot sounds cliched but the sheer number of stars in the drama really does draw you in. Song Seung Hun, Yeon Jeong Hoon, Park Hae Jin, Lee Da Hae, Lee Yeon Hee, Kim Bum, established veterans, etc. Will it be a hit or miss?
