More actors have joined the cast of JTBC’s highly anticipated drama ‘Sacred Divorce‘ (literal translation)!
Based on the hit song of the same name, “Sacred Divorce,” it will tell the story of a talented divorce lawyer named Shin Sung Han (“shinsunghan” means “sacred” in Korean).
Cho Seung Woo, Han Hye Jin, Kim Sung Kyun, and Jung Moon Sung were all previously confirmed for the drama, and now Kang Mal Geum, Cha Hwa Yeon, Jeon Bae Soo, and Han Eun Sung (formerly known as Han Jae Suk) have also joined cast.
Kang Mal Geum takes on the role of Kim So Yeon, the youngest daughter of an elderly woman who owns a ramyeon restaurant. Three best friends Shin Sung Han (Cho Seung Woo), Jang Hyung Geun (Kim Sung Kyun) and Jo Jung Sik (Jung Moon Sung) are regulars at the restaurant and consider grandma’s ramyeon as their soul. Kim So Yeon meets the trio when she temporarily takes over the restaurant due to her mother’s injury, and also becomes particularly interested in one of the three guys.
Cha Hwa Yeon will play Ma Geum Hee, the wife of the owner of Daenam Electronics, a leading company in the industry. Her and Shin Sung Han’s families used to be related by marriage. Growing up as the only daughter in a wealthy family, Ma Geun Hee is a wild-spirited person who suddenly faces a major turning point in her late life.
Jeon Bae Soo was cast as lawyer Park Yoo Seok. Although he is smart, Park Yoo Seok’s selfish personality always causes him to clash with those around him. Despite being a partner at a large law firm, he always keeps a close eye on Shin Sung Han, who runs his own private practice.
Finally, Han Eun Sung will play Choi Joon, an intern lawyer at Park Yoo Seok’s law firm. Choi Joon graduated from law school with excellent grades before starting his career at a prestigious law firm. He has an immense curiosity and interest in Shin Sung Han, the so-called “BTS” of the lawyer world, and later, this very interest ends up changing his life overnight. An up-and-coming lawyer with a lot of spirit and a huge curiosity, Choi Joon is a funny and goofy character who will add fun to the drama.
Sacred Divorce is scheduled to premiere on March 4 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
