Ahn Jae-hyeon, Jeong Il-woo and Park So-dam to star in "Cinderella and the Four Knights"


The new miniseries "Cinderella and the Four Knights" has a complete cast.

According to HB Entertainment, Ahn Jae-hyeon, Jeong Il-woo, Park So-dam, Lee Jung-shin from CNBlue, Choi Min-I and Apink Son Na-eun have confirmed to star in "Cinderella and the Four Knights".

This 16-episode miniseries is pre-produced and is about the lead character Eun Ha-won who moves into the Sky House where 3 of her so-called 3rd generation plutocrats siblings live.

Ahn Jae-hyeon contrasts to Jeong Il-woo and takes on the role of Kang Hyeon-min, a playboy plutocrat. He is used to having lots of money and doing whatever he wants so he falls into conflict with Ha-won. Jeong Il-woo takes on the role of Kang Ji-woon, a soft hearted but wild looking character who rises in status to a member of the royal family in the Sky House.

The only girl in the house is Eun Ha-won, played by Park So-dam. She is a high school student who needs money for her education and joins the Sky House under some conditions.

Kang Seo-woo, a top singer and the final plutocrat member is played by Lee Jung-shin.

The fourth man in the Sky House is played by Choi Min-I. He is a protective character unlike his last drama. Son Na-eun plays Park Hye-ji, a cool girl who has had a crush on Hyeon-min for the longest time.

"Cinderella and the Four Knights" is produced by HB Entertainment which also created dramas like "My Love from the Star" and "Yong Pal". It is expected that the company will create another trend in romantic dramas.

"Cinderella and the Four Knights" is based on an original novel and it is going to be pre-produced.

Park So Dam debuted in a short film in 2013 and since then she has worked consistently,with roles in the films "Royal Tailor," C'est Si Bon," "Silenced," "Veteran," The Throne" and "Priests." She also recently appeared in the drama "Because It's The First Time."

Now the 24-year-old actress is considering joining up with Jung Il Woo, Ahn Jae Hyun, Choi Min and CNBLUE's Lee Jung Shin in the drama "My First.

According to her agency, Caramel Entertainment, talks are still underway.

"Park So Dam was offered the leading female role and was interested so she's currently in talks with the production team."



None of the actors have officially confirmed their participation and Lee Jung Shin is checking his schedule.

The drama is based on the two-part novel "Cinderella and Four Knights," which was published in 2011. If she takes the role Park So Dam will play Baek Myo, a determined high school student who wants to be a veterinarian. Somehow she winds up living in a mansion with three handsome brothers and a security guard.

Here's how it happens. Park's character does not feel at home in her own home once her dad remarries. One day she helps an old man only to discover that he is wealthy man and wants to reward her kindness. He offers her the chance to live in his house with himself and his three grandsons. She takes him up on his offer and gets the chance to attend a much better school. Baek Myo and the three spoiled and careless brothers become a family.

Jung Il Woo, Ahn Jae Hyun and Lee Jung Shin play the brothers. Choi Min plays the security guard.

Jung recently starred in "The Night Watchman's Journal." Ahn Jae Hyun was last seen in the vampire medical drama "Blood." Lee Jung Shin appeared in the melodrama "Temptation." Choi Min had a role in the medical melodrama "Yong Pal" and currently appears in "Riders: Catch Tomorrow."

The drama will air in the second half of 2016.

CNBLUE's Jungshin is seemingly set for a new drama entitled 'Cinderella and Four Knights (working title)'!  In it, he will be playing not one but two cliches at the same time as 3rd generation chaebol and top singer.  He would be great at it, though, with his chic looks and artistic talents!

The drama centers on young people in their twenties and the topics of sincerity, family, friendship, and more.  It is based on a novel of the same name from 2011, although the drama was formerly called 'You're The First.'  

Jungshin will be playing popular singer/songwriter Kang Seo Woo, who is also the heir of Haneul Group.  He is more affectionate than anybody else toward the female lead, Ha Won, played by now confirmedPark So Dam.  Ha Won is a female student working hard at part-time work in order to pay for her college tuition.  She gets the offer to do a high-paying part-time work, which leads to her entering the Haneul household, home of the three male cousins of Haneul Group live.

In some articles it's been said that this drama is still looking for a broadcaster. As i understand it means either 3 major TV stations (KBS, SBS, MBC) or cable tv like tvN, jTBC, TV Chosun will broadcast this drama. So i don't think this drama is a web drama.
