Kim Hyun Joong, Jung So Min cast as lead stars of "Playful Kiss"

MBC Korea will be doing a remake of the Japanese drama "Itazura Na Kiss" and they'll be using the title "Playful Kiss" or "Mischievous Kiss" for their own version.

And just yesterday, the two lead stars for the series have already been finalized.

Kim Hyun Joong Playful Kiss

We are more familiar with Kim Hyun Joong, who played Ji Hoo in "Boys Over Flowers." A week ago, he was cast as the male lead in "Playful Kiss" which was originally offered to his BOF co-star Lee Min Ho or Jun Pyo.

Jung So Min Playful Kiss

But Hyun Joong's leading lady was just revealed yesterday and she's Jung So Min, who currently appears in the Korean drama "Bad Guy".

Still a newbie, "Playful Kiss" will only be Jung So Min's 2nd TV show in Korea.

Taiwan already made their own version of the same material. It was entitled "It Started With A Kiss" plus the sequel "They Kiss Again".

Both were also shown in the Philippines via ABS-CBN and I hope the Korean version will also be shown here.
