Cinderella Man – Confirmed Cast
Yoona (SNSD) has just been confirmed to costar with Kwon Sang Woo and Han Eun Jung in the upcoming MBC drama Cinderella Man. This role was almost confirmed for Han Hye Jin. However, it was decided that Han’s characters in Terroir and Cinderella Man would be too similar to each other.
Yoona will play Seo Yoo Jin, who is studying at a famous fashion academy in Paris. However, when her father suddenly passes away, she must quit school and come back to Korea. Her father had supported her tuition by working in Dongdaemun (a shopping district in Seoul that is famous for fashion) but now, she must help make ends meet for her family. Yoo Jin takes on a part-time job, working diligently as a designer of counterfeit fashion apparel under “punk” Oh Dae San (Kwon Sang Woo) at a clothing shop in Dongdaemun. Yoo Jin and Dae San fall in love, but when she meets a third-generation chaebol/conglomerate heir (also played by Kwon Sang Woo), her love is shaken by money. Han Eun Jung will play fashion icon Jang Se Eun, the only daughter of ShinYongKumKo’s president.
KP’s note: SERIOUSLY?? Yoona and Kwon Sang Woo as a couple???
