According to a report by Spotify News on the 8th, Kim Seon-ah will play the role of a chief prosecutor in JTBC's new drama 'Castle in the Sky'.

 

'Castle in the Sky' is a work that deals with the scandalous scandals of Korea's top court nobles who dream of hereditary succession. Director Yoo Hyun-ki, who made 'My Daughter Seoyoung', 'Brain', 'The Best Divorce', 'Unkind Women', and 'Soul Repairer' will direct.

 

Kim Seon-ah will play the role of Han Hye-ryul, the head of the special division of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office in 'Castle in the Sky'. Han Hye-ryul is from a family of aristocrats who have inherited wealth and power for three generations by qualifying as a lawyer. She is not satisfied with her current position and is ambitious, aiming for a higher position than the Prosecutor General.

 

Expectations are high about how Kim Seon-ah's drawing of Han Hye-ryul will be. In particular, this work is expected to be Kim Sun-ah's comeback after the 2019 SBS drama 'Secret Boutique'. Another point to watch is the transformation of her acting that Kim Seon-ah, who returned to her home theater after a long time, will show her through 'Castle in the Sky'.

 

She has also won many awards. Grand Prize at the 2005 MBC Acting Awards, Grand Prize at the Seoul Drama Awards in 2006, Best Actor at the Korea Broadcasting Producers Awards, Best Actor at the 2009 SBS Drama Awards, Best Actor at the 2011 SBS Drama Awards, Best Actor at the 2014 Golden Cinematography Awards, 2018 She has won the Grand Prize at the Grime Awards, the Grand Prize at the MBC Drama Awards, and the Grand Prize at the SBS Drama Awards.

Newest news say that she is concidering. Well, that is happening all the time. They announced that an actor will appear on the drama and later the agency will say that he/she is received the offer and considering.

 

I think she will sign with this drama. She won`t appear in Queen Maker but she has another offer who sounds equally tempting.

Kim Sun Ah may be appearing in a new drama!

On July 8, SPOTV News reported that Kim Sun Ah will be playing a chief prosecutor in JTBC’s new drama “Fortress of Heaven” (literal translation).

The actress’s agency Ikkeul Entertainment clarified that she’s currently reviewing the offer to appear in the drama.

“Fortress of Heaven” depicts the vulgar scandals of Korea’s nobles of the robe (whose rank came from holding judicial or administrative posts) who dream of hereditary succession. It will be produced by producing director (PD) Yoo Hyun Ki who previously directed dramas like “Brain” and “Seo Young, My Daughter.”

Kim Sun Ah is said to have been offered the role of Han Hye Ryul, the chief of the special division of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office. Han Hye Ryul is from a family of judicial workers who has had wealth and power for three generations. She is an ambitious figure who is not satisfied with her current position and aims to become a prosecutor general or someone higher up the ladder.

Should Kim Sun Ah accept this offer, the upcoming drama will mark her first acting role in two years: she last starred in the SBS drama “Secret Boutique” back in 2019.

“Fortress of Heaven” is scheduled to start filming in September, and the specific timing of broadcasting is undecided.

I love Kim Sun Ah and her talent to death, please please sign on for the role!!:heart:

 

It is a matter of time until we`ll have the confirmation. After so many years reading these casting news i know when it will be a sure confirmation.

 

I am glad that she had a new offer. When I read that the last drama (Queen Maker)was relaunched with other actresses I thought that Kim Sun Ah must have another offer.

 

I am intrigued about her character. She is very ambitious and I am sure she will compete with male characters to general prosecutor position.

Actor Ahn Jae-wook foretold the performance of an actor who believes and sees through 'Castle in the Sky'.

According to Hankyung.com coverage on the 9th, Ahn Jae-wook will appear in JTBC's new drama 'The Empire: Empire of Law' as the main character, Na Geun-woo. Expectations are rising in that it is Ahn Jae-wook's first lead role in five years after KBS 2TV's 'Five Children'.

 

'The Empire' was previously known under the title 'Castle in the Sky'. It deals with the scandalous scandal of Korea's top court aristocrats who dream of hereditary succession.

Na Geun-woo, played by Ahn Jae-wook, is a person who was born poor, but entered Seoul National University Law School, met the wife of a lawyer family, and gained public recognition as a caring husband and a law school professor. Even though he is considered a strong presidential candidate, he is a character that gathers curiosity by keeping the secret of his private life.

 

Ahn Jae-wook made his debut as a talent in the 23rd MBC recruitment in 1994, and has produced numerous hit films such as 'Stars in My Heart', 'Vengeful Blood', 'Bad Friends', 'Best Friendship', Lights and Shadows.

I am glad that it is a female centric drama. But I like all  main cast.

I watched just drama Brain but I am more interested to know who is the writer.

I want to know more informations also but, at least, they gave us news about the cast constantly since the drama was announced. That`s better than other dramas.  From the rumors it seems that The Empire of Law will air in June, 13. We have a date, even if it is not official.
