Korean actress Ku Hye-sun [Asia Economic Daily]
"The casting for the drama has not been finalized... It is one of many offers that she has received", an official at YG said in a phone call with Asia Economic Daily. "She is planning to appear in a drama in the second half of the year and so we are talking with [the producers of] "The Musical"".
Talks of her appearance in "The Musical" escalated when she showed up yesterday to watch a performance of musical "Monte Cristo", starring Ock Joo-hyun of former girl band Fin.K.L., accompanied by actor Choi Daniel who is also rumored to appear in "The Musical".
YG explained, however, that Koo had only gone to see "Monte Cristo" to support Ock, a close friend of the actress.
Koo, who had originally planned to debut as a singer, started acting in several TV dramas and made a breakthrough with a role in 2006 KBS TV series "Hearts of Nineteen".
The 25-year-old actress then became a household name throughout Asia after starring in the mega-hit KBS drama "Boys over Flowers" as Geum Jan-di last year.
Known to many as also a talented artist, novelist, scriptwriter and an aspiring director, Koo will be premiering her first feature film "Magic - 2010" at the Jeonju International Film Festival, which kicks off in Korea today.
