I have been waiting for her come back for a year but honestly, at the first read, the premise sounds so like a melo with full of cliches to me instead of a promising romcom. It is like Miss Ripley + Nice Guy + Fashion King + I Do I Do + Fire Bird + that drama that has Soo Ae and Kwon Sang Woo. However, there is nothing I can say for sure yet. And I am confused about the writer part, the article last page said it will be penned by Kim Young Hyun who wrote Queen Seonduk and Deep Rooted Tree, but the article in this page said it was Kim Jin Hee. And Kim Jin Hee is not the co writer w KYH in QS and DRT either, it is Park Sang Yun .So weird, but anw if it is KYH then it should be a good drama.Seems like I am the only one who was really excited for Beautiful Life last year. Normally medical dramas are full of heavy politic, there are rarely light hearted but meaningful one except for General Hospital 2 maybe and BL does sounds really promising one. It is also around the nurses and medical romcom, which is the first time in Kmedical drama. I have been hoping she is back with that pj all along ;~: but seems like it won't happen.

PSH's connection to Moon Chae Won and the 5coins couple was the first thing that popped up in my head hehehe
If she does confirm that 'Cheongdam-dong Alice' drama, I hope it is highly adapted from the novel, because the storyline of the novel sounds so cliche. I totally thought of 'Fashion King' and a bit of 'I do I do.' And both dramas, I couldn't even finish.
Shin Se Kyung shared her thoughts about Moon Geun Young and her babyface image.
On the August 16 episode of KBS 2TV‘s “Happy Together Season 3,” she stated, “I look older than Moon Geun Young who is 3 years older than me.”
She explained,”We became close friends after appearing on the same movie ‘My Little Bride,’ when
I was 14 years old. In the movie we played first year middle school
students and even though we were playing characters of the same age, I
looked like a first year high schooler next to Moon Geun Young. ” She
then added, “We still keep in touch and talk often.”
Shin Se Kyung made her debut through hit movie “My Little Bride”
alongside friend Moon Geun Young in 2004. She recently starred in dramas “Tree with Deep Roots” and “Fashion King.”
