Kim Hee Sun is in talks to star in an upcoming SBS drama!

On September 20, a Korean news outlet reported that Kim Hee Sun would be playing the female lead in the new drama “Alice” (previously “Hotel Alice”). Joo Won confirmed earlier this year that he had been offered the male lead in the same drama and is still in talks for the role.

Later that same morning, Kim Hee Sun’s agency Hinge Entertainment clarified that while the actress did receive an offer to star in the drama, she has not yet officially accepted the offer.

“Kim Hee Sun is still in the process of reviewing her casting offer for ‘Alice,’ with a favorable outlook,” stated a representative of the agency. “We’re at the stage where all that remains is the fine-tuning of the final details.”

“Alice” will tell the story of a man and a woman who are separated by death, only to be reunited by overcoming the limits of time and space. Kim Hee Sun has been offered the role of Yoon Tae Yi, a genius physicist who holds the key to uncovering the secrets of time travel, while Joo Won has been offered the role of Park Jin Kyum, a detective who learns a hidden secret about himself while attempting to solve the mystery of time travel.

Joo-won, Kim Hee-sun, Kwak Shi-yang up for time-traveling drama Alice

by tineybeanie

collage-js.jpg

 

It looks like Kim Hee-sun (Room No. 9) and Joo-won (My Sassy Girl) are the top contenders to be the leads in upcoming SBS drama Alice, with reports saying they’re close to confirming. More recently, it’s been announced that Kwak Shi-yang (Welcome 2 Life) has also received an offer to join them.

Sci-fi romance drama Alice is about a woman and a man who make their final goodbye at death, but miraculously meet again, stepping over the boundaries of time and space. If Joo-won confirms, this will be his first drama after returning home from military service.

Kim Hee-sun is set to play a genius physicist who holds the key to the secrets of time travel. Due to the time shift aspect of this drama, Kim Hee-sun must play a 20-year-old, a 30-year-old, and a 40-year-old version of herself, which should be no problem since she’s virtually ageless.

She meets a police investigator, to be played by Joo-won, who insists that their reunion is fated. Together, they begin to pursue a case that helps her uncover the secrets of time as well as some secrets about herself. The role that Kwak Shi-yang has been offered is that of a time traveler who is the manager of Hotel Alice.

Joo Won and Kim Hee Sun will be working together for the upcoming SBS drama “Alice.”

“Alice” is a science fiction drama that will tell the magical story of a man and a woman who are separated by death, only to be reunited by overcoming the limits of time and space.

Joo Won will play Park Jin Kyum, a detective who was born without the ability to have emotions. While attempting to solve mysterious cases, he becomes the first person to find out about time travelers who came from the future through a device called “Alice.” In the middle of his struggles to fight difficult situations that occur due to the existence of “Alice,” he has a fateful reunion with Yoon Tae Yi, a woman who died a long time ago.

Kim Hee Sun has taken on the role of Yoon Tae Yi, a genius physicist who holds the key to uncovering the secrets of time travel. After encountering Park Jin Kyum who argues that they met by fate, Yoon Tae Yi joins him in uncovering the secrets. In the process, she discovers her own secrets. MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo was previously confirmed to play her younger sister in the drama.

The production company The Story Works stated, “The drama ‘Alice’ is a new genre that incorporates science fiction with human melodrama. It does not miss out on any aspects of humanism, comedy, and melodrama while showcasing a large-scale plot that is typical of the sci-fi genre.” They continued, “With a script that is near perfection and actors who have both acting skills and popularity, we will present a drama that makes viewers feel as if they are part of it. We ask that you show lots of interest.”

Kwak Si Yang And Lee Da In Confirmed To Join Kim Hee Sun And Joo Won’s New Drama

Dec 19, 2019

Kwak Si Yang has confirmed his next project will be SBS’s “Alice.”

“Alice” is a science fiction drama about a man and a woman who are separated by death but overcome the limits of time and space to reunite. Kim Hee Sun and Joo Won confirmed last month that they will be playing the lead roles, and former MOMOLAND member Yeonwoo has also been cast.

Kwak Si Yang was previously announced to be in talks for the drama. On December 19, a source from his agency confirmed, “Kwak Si Yang has chosen ‘Alice’ as his new project and is in the middle of filming.”

He will be playing the role of Yoo Min Hyuk, an elite agent at the organization “Alice” who protects time travelers. Rather than making value judgements about time travel, he does the work he’s assigned without a word.

Last month, actress Lee Da In also confirmed that she will be appearing in “Alice” in the role of Kim Do Yeon. Kim Do Yeon is a local news reporter with a positive, warm personality who isn’t afraid to stand up to others.

Watch: Kim Hee Sun Travels Through Time To Meet Joo Won In “Alice” Teaser

Jan 2, 2020
by C. Hong

 

ec9b8d4c8b2a4e4c88924b7e7c271803.jpeg?s=

 

Upcoming SBS sci-fi drama “Alice” (literal title) has released its first trailer!

“Alice” is about a detective without emotions (Joo Won) who learns about the existence of time travelers, who come from the future through a device called “Alice.” In the course of his investigations into “Alice,” he has a fateful reunion with a woman who died a long time ago (Kim Hee Sun).

The teaser begins with a flashback to Joo Won’s harsh school days, with Kim Hee Sun seemingly appearing as his mother, promising to believe in him no matter what. In a voice-over, someone says to Joo Won, “I should have caught the man who killed your mother,” and Joo Won responds coldly, “I’ll catch him now.”

Kim Hee Sun appears again as a dark-haired assassin with the voice-over, “If you meet someone strange, tell me right away.” A woman comments that strange things have been happening over the country lately, as Kim Hee Sun and potential other time travelers wreak havoc on people’s lives.

The trailer ends with Joo Won and Kim Hee Sun’s reunion, with Joo Won saying, “She said she was a time traveling mother” and Kim Hee Sun saying, “This is the fate I chose. Because you’re my son.”

****

So Kim Hee Sun plays the mother of the protagonist. But if she was dead in the past how she appears from the future? Maybe he thought that she died. Or maybe she manipulates the time travel device? Someone from the future came to the past and saved her? Many questions.  WE`ll see.

Thanks larus glad there's an update for this. Excited to see Joo Won's comeback.  Did not care for his last drama actually (sassy girl historical remake) but also excited to see KHS. The last time I watch her was in 215 Angry Mom. So she's going to play a mother to Joo Won..in the past?

 

I'm not the biggest fan of fantasy/time travel genre I stay awat from them unless it's good writing/story (ie Tunnel,  Signal) but  I like these two actors plus I'm curious actually about plot/premise...so  I'm going to watch this.

The last drama I saw Joo Won was Naeil's Cantabile and for Kim Hee sun was Angry Mom too. I actually see the leads in two drama each. 

I wanted to watch the last drama of Kim Hee Sun, Room no 9, another fantasy drama, but I could not had time when it was airing.

Well, I will watch this drama. I like the fantasy genre but not many fantasy kdramas are catching my interest.

I hope Alice has a good plot. I don`t know if they can explain satisfactory the time travel system but the son- mother meeting after time is heartwarming and i want to see it. I am cheering for a happy ending for both of them. We`ll see.
