Hyun Bin [Asia Economic Daily]
An official with the drama told Asia Economic on Tuesday that Hyun Bin will take on the role of a finicky heir to a conglomerate in the fantasy melodrama also set to star actress Ha Ji-won as a stunt woman.
While the upcoming show has attracted attention for its creators -- producer Sin Woo-cheol and scenarist Kim Eun-sook, the mastermind duo behind hit shows "Lovers in Paris" and "On Air" -- it has raised eyebrows in regards to its casting.
Jay Park, the leader of former boy band 2PM, was in talks with producers to play the role of gifted singer in the show but negotiations fell through at the last moment. A replacement has yet to be found.
Then Jang Hyuk, managed by the same agency as Park, SidusHQ, cancelled his appearance in the drama as well.
Actress Kim Sa-rang, also with SidusHQ, was rumored to be set on withdrawing from the "Secret Garden" but she, along with actor Yoon Sang-hyun, are said to have made no changes to their decisions to appear in the show.
