Kim So Eun has been cast as the female lead for the new MBC drama, ‘A Thousand Kisses‘.

‘A Thousand Kisses’ is about two sisters who lead hard, but happy lives after their mother leaves home. Kim So Eun will play the younger sister, ‘Woo Joo Mi’, a bright character who never loses her optimism even in a harsh environment. She falls in love with a gentle guy named ‘Jang Woo Jin’, played by actor Ryu Jin while Seo Young Hee plays her older sister.

A representative for the drama stated, “Kim So Eun has been cast in ‘A Thousand Kisses’. She is set to join forces with Ryu Jin.”

Kim So Eun gained fame through KBS’s ‘Boys Over Flowers‘ and ‘Good Day For the Wind to Blow‘. This is her first work in more than a year, and so fans are eager to see her back on the small screen.

‘A Thousand Kisses’ is scheduled to air in mid-August following ‘Sparkling‘. Seo Young Hee, Ji Hyun Woo, and Ryu Jin have been confirmed in the drama line-up so far.
