Although Yoona is in the middle of filming her current drama “K2”, the actress has already been confirmed for her next project. Yoona will star alongside ZE:A’s Im Siwan in a new drama tentatively titled “The King is in Love.”
The sageuk drama is about a Crown Prince (Im Siwan) who is ambitions and ruthless. He will rival a character named Rin (who has yet to be cast) for Yoona’s heart. The story is described as a tragic melo-drama.
Both idols are paving out a pretty solid acting careers for themselves. There always seems to be some stigma when it comes to singer turned actor idols, however these two are at least choosing the right projects. Im Siwan did a stellar job in “Misaeng” and has also been in several movie in the past few years. Meanwhile, Yoona’s “K2” is all but guaranteed to be a hit. It will be interesting to see who they cast in the role of Rin.
“The King is in Love” will be 100 percent pre-produced, and will begin filming in November.
