Eun San - Yoon-ah will play the beautiful San, a woman of deadly charm who is loved by two men, described as the Goryeo-era Scarlett O’Hara. She’s the only daughter of the wealthiest man in the nation—her father comes from the royal line and does anything if it means amassing more wealth.

Scarlett O'Hara personality

Scarlett O'Hara is an atypical protagonist, especially as a female romantic lead in fiction. When the novel opens, Scarlett is sixteen. She is vain, self-centered, and very spoiled by her wealthy parents. She can also be insecure; but is very intelligent, despite her fashionable Southern-belle pretense at ignorance and helplessness around men. She is somewhat unique among Southern women, whom society preferred to act as dainty creatures who needed protection from their men. Scarlett is aware that she is only acting empty-headed, and resents the fashionable "necessity" of it, unlike most of her typical party-going Southern belles social set.



I am ready for this acting Yoona will be playing.

Oh my! Thank you so much for the detailed info!  :ahmagah:

 

 

if she's gonna start by november, then that means she's not gonna appear much on k2?

 

Yoona is the main female lead along side Song Yoona, she will appear a lot. 

 

THE K2 finishes airing 12th November. Filming will most likely finish early November/late October.

 

So she'll jump into this drama right after she's done.

Im Siwan and Yoona cast in upcoming historical drama 'The King Loves'

 

htm_2016092165940981493_99_2016092107000

 

1. [+1189, -130] Hul.. Totally looking forward to Im Siwan!!

 

2. [+1106, -199] Wow, daebak visuals ã„·ã„·

 

3. [+933, -183] They both resemble deers so their visuals match ã…‹ã…‹ Looking forward to it~

 

4. [+1052, -245] Looking forward to Im Siwan and Yoona ã…‹ã…‹ Handsome and pretty.

 

5. [+574, -87] Im Siwan in a historical genre!!! His first after his role as Heo Yeom in 'The Moon Embracing the Sun'! So excited ã… ã… ã… ã… ã…  My eyes will be happy.

 

6. [+165, -24] Production media play. No manners.. What are they doing to Yoona when her drama hasn't even aired yet. There's also no clear statement from the staff either... I bet it's media play.

 

7. [+200, -41] Yoona's appearing in a new drama soon so why is SM pushing for this. This isn't right. At least announce it later.

 

8. [+119, -17] Who's the writer and director though? Watching 'Scarlet Heart', I realized no matter how good the original is, the writer needs to be good to give the original justice... Maybe this is just an unfounded article?

 

9. [+76, -6] The press conference for 'The K2' was just yesterday so I was like why is she starring in two dramas at once but I guess it's airing after

 

10. [+44, -6] I bet an article will be posted later: "Casting not confirmed"

MORE DETAILS!!
 

Wang Won (Siwan) : the king, Chung Sun

Wang San (Yoona): the only daughter of the richest man in the region

Wang Lin (?): Won's best friend

 

Both Won and Lin love San.

Apparently, San loves Lin and Won's love doesn't work out in the original story.

I don't think its more of a western culture more of just a random personality they wanted for the lead

 

 

 

 

Most of the non mainstream historical dramas have been 50 episodes, this is guessing that this isn't some quick sappy romance type drama but really hard hiting in the sense of script and production. I hope this is the case

oh, i thought it's like classic western clothes. looking forward to how she play it :smile:

 

but i don't think it'll reach 50 eps, looking that yoona n siwan will be the cast (kinda hard for idols to have that long project for drama as main/lead cast). max i think it'll be 24 eps at max. but i don't really know either tho.
