MBC’s “Illumination” is finally making some concrete casting announcements. Lee Yo Won (“Empire of Gold”) has been officially confirmed for the drama.
The project initially announced Jin Goo, UEE and Lee Yo Won to all star together in the new series, and then retracted the initial press release. It turns out, at least in the case of Lee, that the actress will in fact be taking on the supporting character role. Lee agency stated “Among the many productions she has received offers for so far, she became attached to the showy and strong character Seo Yi Kyung of ‘Illumination’ and ultimately decided to work on this together. She will endlessly consult with the production crew in order to well portray the character of the female lead Seo Yi Kyung and plans to give her all to prepare in all aspects.”
Waiting on further announcements from the network on the matter of the lead couple. The drama will premier in November, following the conclusion of “Woman with a Suitcase.”
