The role of Ji Eun Ho in the upcoming melodrama "My Love Eun Dong" is such a big one that it requires three actors to play it.
Joo Jin Mo, Baek Sung Hyun and Got7's Jr. have signed on to the challenge. The three actors will play the same character at different ages.
Joo Jin Mo, last seen in the historical drama "Empress Ki," will play the actor Ji Eun Ho as an adult. Baek Sung Hyun, who appeared in the OCN drama "Cheo Yong" and "Iris 2," plays the character in his 20s. Got7's Jr. aka Park Jin Young plays the character in his teens. Park Jin Young had supporting roles in "Dream High 2" and "When A Man Falls In Love," as well as a role in the web drama "Dream Knight."
Ji Eun Ho becomes a star actor, not because he really wants to be a celebrity, but because he wants to be reunited with his first love Eun Dong. He and Eun Dong have a long and complicated romantic history that has spanned two decades. He's convinced he can never love anyone else but some things are not meant to be.
Ji Eun Ho does not come across as the nicest person. He's tense and irritable but his bad temper might have something to do with his obsessive need to find Eun Dong, who he believes will make everything right. When he meets her again, she does change his life but she is not the person he was once in love with. She's all grown up with a teenage child.
The drama will ask the question, can you return to your first love? Or are you a completely different person 20 years later?
Actress Kim Sa Rang, last seen as Oska's first love in "Secret Garden," will play the grown-up version of the character Seo Jung Eun and Yoon So Hee, last seen in "Secret Door," will play Seo Jung Eun in her 20s.
The drama also stars Kim Yoo Ri, who last appeared in "Kill Me, Heal Me" and "The Master's Sun," and Kim Tae Toon, who currently plays a bad teacher in "Angry Mom."
"My Love Eun Dong" is scheduled to air in June after the completion of "Falling For Innocence. Baek Mi Kyung is writing the screenplay. Lee Tae Gon I, who directed "Your Neighbor's Wife" and "Queen Insoo," is the director.
