Girls Generation"s Choi Soo Young is considering a new role in the MBDC drama "Spring Day," also called "The Springtime of My Life."
A representative for her agency, SM Entertainment, told OSEN that she is currently positively reviewing the role. It has been more than a year since Choi Soo Young appeared on the small screen. The rapper, dancer, singer and TV presenter was last seen as a matchmaker with some ethical concerns in the comedy "Dating Agency: Cyrano." In the 16-episode comedy she played a woman employed by a dating agency run by a character played by Lee Jong Hyuk. Sooyoung"s performance in the comedy won her praise from fans and fellow actors alike.
Choi, 24, also played Lee Eu Jin in the medical drama "The Third Hospital" and has had cameo roles in "Gentleman"s Dignity" and "Oh My Lady."
Choi Soo Young has not had much time for drama roles lately, as she has been busy making music with Girls Generation. Time magazine listed the band"s most recent song "Mr. Mr." as one of the 25 best songs of the year. She must weigh the prospect of any new role against her band"s touring and recording schedule.
"Spring Day" is the hopeful story of a terminally ill woman given a new chance at life when she gets a heart transplant. And getting a new chance at life can also mean having a new chance at love.
The role Choi Soo Young is considering is that of the terminally ill woman whose name is Lee Bom.
It was rumored that the role was previously offered to Son Ye Jin. But if that"s true, she turned it down. Perhaps she declined the role because she already played a woman who underwent a heart transplant in "Summer Scent."
The male lead in "Spring Day" will be Kam Woo Sung, who is 20 years older than Choi Soo Young. His character has not yet been described.
Kam Woo Sung played the cruel king who fell in love with Lee Jun Ki in the film "The King and The Clown." He is known for his role in "Alone in Love," a drama about divorce, and his role as Geunchogo of Baekje in the weekend drama "King of Legend."
Yoo Joon Sang, who was last seen in "The Secret of Birth," was also reportedly up for a part in "Spring Day," but it"s not known whether it was Kam Woo Sung"s part or another role.
Lee Jae Dong, who directed the melodrama "Missing You," will direct "Spring Day." Park Ji Sook, who wrote "The Way Home," will be the screenwriter.
The drama follows "Fated To Love You" in September.
