According to sources, Seohyun has been cast in the upcoming SBS weekend drama, “Passionate Love”, for the role of Han Yurim, the first love of the drama’s male lead, Kang Mooyeol.
Han Yurim, the character Seohyun will be playing, is a popular veterinary science university student with a smart brain, neat facial appearance, and warm heart. The male lead, a high school student, falls in love at first sight when he sees her and poses as a college student in order to date her. Eventually she becomes his star-crossed first love.
Seohyun previously made a cameo appearance along with the other members of Girls’ Generation in the 2008 KBS 2TV sitcom, “Unstoppable Marriage”, which featured members Yuri and Sooyoung as part of the regular cast. However, this is the first time Seohyun will be acting in a drama.
Seohyun’s character, Han Yurim, will appear in the first four episodes, but she will be a character who influences the overall flow of the story. Seohyun has garnered attention as to whether she will be able to prove her potential as an actress through her first acting attempt in this drama.
“Passionate Love” is a human-melodrama that draws out the story of a man and woman from two families who are tangled in tragedy. The two leads are planning on showing life’s emotions through the various people around them, success, and ruins. The drama will air in October after “Wonderful Mama” ends.
