[HanCinema's News] Kim Hyun-I Cast for "The Great Show"

Six Oceans Agency has confirmed that Kim Hyun-I, an actress they represent, will be appearing in "The Great Show" later this year. In a statement, they said she had been cast as Mi-sook, and anticipated she would bring much fun to the production. "The Great Show" is a political drama starring Song Seung-heon as a parliamentary representative named Dae-han. His full Korean name translates, amusingly and ironically, into 'The Great One'.


Kim Hyun-I's character is the mother of Soo-hyeon, who is played by Lee Sun-bin, who is the drama's female lead. This also makes her the wife of Soo-hyeon's father, Jong-cheol, who is played by Lee Won-jong. Mi-sook has been described as being the kind of woman who is always nagging her deserving husband, but who nonetheless still loves him.

Kim Hyun-I specializes in minor, often unnamed roles in South Korean dramas and films, although she also does a great deal of work in stage acting. Her most significant role was as a major supporting character in "Top Star Yoo Baek" last year.
