Another possible Nodame Cantabile lead is brought to light.
Actress Shim Eun Kyung is rumoured to be positively considering taking the role of Noda 'Nodame' Megumi in the Korean remake of "Nodame Cantabile."
According to representatives of the drama, "We have finished the negotiations with Shim Eun Kyung's agency, and are expecting to sign the deal soon. We are going to announce the official line up next week, and will soon begin filming on August."
However, Shim Eun Kyung's agency is more careful in their answer, saying, "We have discussed with the production staff, but nothing has been set in stone. Since they officially announced it, we have been placed in an awkward situation."
They added, "It is true that Shim Eun Kyung's movie filming will be moved to a later date, but this doesn't mean that she will be taking 'Nodame Cantabile'."
Earlier, it was reported that actress Shim Eun Kyung, the first candidate as the lead for the upcoming Korean remake of "Nodame Cantabile," declined the role to focus on filming her movie "Waiting For You."
In response to the public sentiment that Shim Eun Kyung is the best actress for the role, the company expressed, "Thank you for the attention."
Should the production still push through, "Nodame Cantabile" is scheduled to air on October.
