7 Fun facts about the cast of My Beautiful Bride
My Beautiful Bride, OCN's new action thriller about a man desperate to find his missing fiancee, is coming to DramaFever on Monday, June 29! To prepare for the intense series, here are 7 fun facts about the talented cast.
1. Lee Si Young is a champion boxer.
This is one case where the leading lady isn't faking her action skills! In addition to being an actress, Lee Si Young is also a champion amateur-level boxer, winning three amateur champion titles in the sport.
Fortunately, leading man Kim Mo Yul's real-life wedding was far less dramatic than the one in this series. After dating for four years, Kim Moo Yul married I Need Romance 3 actress Yoon Seung Ah on April 4, 2015, and they released the most adorable wedding photoshoot of all time. Kim Moo Yul accidentally announced their relationship to the world in 2012 when he sent her some romantic direct messages on Twitter that were actually public tweets. Whoops!
3. Go Sung Hee won an acting award for her drama debut
Go Sung Hee is actually pretty new to the drama world, making her drama debut in 2013 with Miss Korea. She next leaped to a leading role in The Night Watchman's Journal, and the combination of those two shows landed her a Best New Actress award at the 2014 MBC Drama Awards. Can you believe this is only her fourth series?
Ryu Seung Soo is a veteran actor with 20+ movies and 20+ dramas under his belt, but he wasn't always busy. After becoming good friends with Bae Yong Joon during Ryu's very first drama, Winter Sonata, Ryu used to receive wake-up calls from his friend encouraging him to get up and start working even when he had an empty schedule. In his memoir Don't Be an Actor Like Me, Ryu recalls that he would try to answer with a lively voice to avoid letting his friend know when he was sleeping in, but Bae simply responded, "Just use your quiet voice because I know you just woke up."
5. Park Hae Joon is doing back-to-back OCN dramas
Many actors take some sort of break between dramas, but not supporting actor Park Hae Joon! Not only is he working in back-to-back dramas, but he will be moving from a small part in Missing Noir M to My Beautiful Bride, the show that will be replacing it in the very same time slot on the very same network! He must really love OCN thrillers.
6. Lee Si Young is a Boys over Flowers alumna
I always forget that it was Lee Si Young who played Jan Di's first friend at school who later betrays her. Remember the whole "ice cream on the shoe" incident? Yeah, that was her. She later shared the screen with Kim Hyun Joong again in Playful Kiss.
7. Kim Moo Yul has an incredible voice.
Kim Moo Yul is best known as a musical theater actor. You can hear his beautiful voice in the video below from his role as Richard Loeb (a role also played by both Ji Chang Wook and Kang Ha Neul) in the musical Thrill Me.
