Chae Rim‘s agency, Sidus HQ, has announced that the popular hallyu actress will make a guest appearance on the upcoming Chinese remake of the drama “All About Eve.” She is set to play an accomplished anchorwoman and the ex-girlfriend of the character played by Korean actor Jang Hyuk (Chruno), which is a role that had not existed in the original Korean drama.

“I was so happy to hear about a remake because ‘All About Eve’ is one of the dramas that I cherish,” the 31-year-old actress was quoted as saying. “So I am incredibly glad and happy to appear in it. I think this drama means more to me and feels special because it is based on a Korean drama and stars a Korean actor.” Credit:

The original version, which featured a cast that included Chae Rim herself, Jang Dong-gun, Han Ja Seuk and Kim So Yeon, was a hit not only in Korea, but also in the other Asian countries when it broadcasted more than 10 years ago. Since then, Chae Rim has also participated in many other drama projects, the most recent being “Oh My Lady” with Super Junior member Choi Siwon.

The Chinese remake will star actresses Dan Zhu and Cheryl Yang, and is scheduled to air on China’s Zhejiang Satellite TV in September.
