Byun Yo Han In Talks For New Drama Based On German Mystery Novel



Jun 18, 2021
by L. Kim

Byun Yo Han may be returning with a new drama soon!

On June 18, an industry representative reported that the actor will lead the drama “Snow White Must Die” (literal title) based on the German mystery novel of the same name by Nele Neuhaus. In response to the report, his agency Saram Entertainment shared, “He received an offer [to star in the drama] and is reviewing it.”

The original novel “Snow White Must Die” is a bestseller that revolves around two detectives who dig into mysterious incidents that happen in a village. The drama will reinterpret those events and the characters in the book to match Korean sentiments, and it will show the ugly side of human nature.

Byun Yo Han has received an offer to play Go Jung Woo. When he was younger, he was smart enough to be on the early admission list to medical school. He went on a trip after taking his SAT (scholastic ability test) but became a murderer ever since that day. He returns to his hometown after being released from prison and comes across what happened 11 years ago.

If Byun Yo Han accepts the offer, this will be his first drama since “Mr. Sunshine” in 2018.

“Snow White Must Die” will be produced by Hidden Sequence, and the formation is still under discussion.

Attention is focused on whether actor Ko Bo-gyeol will appear in Wave's original 'Death to Snow White'.

On the July 27th, Go Bo-gyeol's agency, History DNC, said, "Go Bo-gyeol received an offer for the role of Choi Na-gyeom in 'Death to Snow White' and is positively discussing it."


Death to Snow White' is a work based on the German novel of the same name by Nele Neuhaus, and is said to have been adapted to fit the Korean sentiment. It traces a series of murders that took place in a village 11 years ago and depicts the ugly nature of human beings hidden within.

Actress Kim Bo-ra meets viewers with 'Death to Snow White'. As a result of the coverage of News 1 on the 5th, Kim Bo-ra is about to appear in her Wave's new original series 'Death to Snow White'.


'Death to Snow White' is based on the German novel of the same name by Nele Neuhaus. In the process of tracing a series of murders in a village, the process of uncovering the ugly inner nature of human beings will be drawn. Kim Bo-ra takes on the role of Ha Seol in the drama.

There is an old article with the German novelist from 2011


The Korean version surpassed 100,000 copies within three months of publication... E-mail interview with Nele Neuhaus, author of ‘Death to Snow White




The German novelist Nele Neuhaus (44)'s mystery novel 'Death to Snow White' sold over 100,000 copies within three months of publication.

Published at the end of January, this book ranked ninth in the Kyobo Books Bestseller Bestseller list in the first week of March and ranked first in the novel category for five weeks in a row. In the recent tally (April 27-May 3), it ranked second after Shin Kyung-sook's 'Take Care of Mom' in the novel category, but it climbed to the third place in the general tally, maintaining its popularity.


'To Snow White... ’ is the first work introduced in Korea among Mr. Neuhaus’s books. It is a German literary work that was not the mainstream in the domestic and foreign book market as well as a writer that I encountered for the first time. We interviewed a writer living in Germany via e-mail.


“I never thought it would be so popular in Korea. I was very happy to hear the news.”

'To Snow White... ' is the fourth installment of the 'Taunus series' that Neuhaus has been showing since 2006. The core of the series is the story of the cold-headed investigative team leader Bodenstein and the emotional female detective Pia Combi solving an unsolved case. 'To Snow White... ’, the duo uncovers the truth about the murder of two teenage women 10 years ago.

Last year, 330,000 copies of the book were sold in Germany alone and the rights were sold in 20 countries. What is the force that has fascinated readers from various countries?

“I set the background of my work to a real area and place, and I try to bring probable and vivid characters as much as possible. Because of the strong realism and the high tension, many readers mistakenly believe that such a thing really happened. I think that realism is the biggest attraction.”


'To Snow White... The spatial background of ' is the Taunus he lives in, and because of this, on weekends, more tourists visit the places mentioned in the book, Neuhaus said.

He is now a widely read writer in the world, but he also had a small beginning. The first volume of the Taunus series, 'The Woman Who Is Hated', and the second part, 'Too Close Friends' were self-published. “When she was thirteen, her parents gave her a typewriter, and she wrote whenever she had spare time. But it was difficult for him to become a writer right away.”

Neuhaus did not give up her dream of becoming a writer while helping her husband run a sausage factory. 'To Snow White... ' sold over 250,000 copies in Germany, and her husband bluntly said, "I can sell 250,000 sausages too."

“My husband is not a reader at all. He didn't understand that I was sitting in front of a computer for hours, and when I said I was going to publish a book on my own, I shook my head. But now I am very proud of myself.”

Mr. Neuhaus said he had never been to Korea, but said that he had Samsung's European headquarters in Schwalbach, where his husband's company is, so Koreans sometimes come to buy sausages. Then, Mr. Neuhaus is the Korean version of 'To Snow White... ’, but Korean customers are surprised and happy.


He publishes the fifth installment of the Taunus series, The Wind Sower, in Germany this month. It is expected to be published in the second half of this year. “It’s a story about a windmill park being built in Taunus, but civic groups are against it. However, the people of civic groups have other plans and many conflicts are hidden. Murders happen one after another. You will be able to see the depths of human existence from the many people involved in the case.”

  • larus changed the title to [Upcoming Drama 2023]Snow White Must Die, 백설공주에게 죽음을- Byun Yo Han, Go Bo Gyeol, Kim Bo Ra

Actress Go Bo-gyeol looked back on her mini-series comeback after 3 years, ‘Sacred Idol’, and expressed her gratitude to viewers. She mentioned that she filmed Death to Snow White as well. I wonder when it will be broadcast.



-I think it will be a special feeling to greet viewers for the first time in about 3 years since ‘Hi Bye, Mama’ for the mini-series. How do you feel about the end of ‘Holy Idol’?


▲I also filmed a work called ‘Death to Snow White’, but it hasn’t been released yet, so it’s been a while since I’ve been able to say hello to you on air. Maybe that's why I was more nervous when broadcasting than when filming. In particular, I was curious about how viewers would view the character as I was presented with a character that was completely different from the previous work, ‘Hi Bye, Mama.’ Fortunately, I was very grateful that Kim Dal accepted me as such and supported me a lot.
