Han Ye Seul may return to dramas with Birth of a Beauty
If this bit of casting news pans out for her, Han Ye Seul would play a young woman who changes her life after going through a drastic diet. Joo Sang Wook has already confirmed that he will star as the male lead.
Nothing has been confirmed yet because Han is currently staying abroad (I bet in the States), and she hasn't made any definitive decisions about her acting career. If she takes on this role, it will be her first return to drama-land in the three years since Spy Myung Wol, where she threw a tantrum mid-production and flew all the way to the States. While I understand that she was complaining about the long and stressful hours of a live shoot (which is not a great way to make a drama), I do think she was a little irresponsible to leave like that. So if she's going to take on this drama, hopefully she won't abandon Joo Sang Wook!

What do you think? Yay or nay? And who would you pick to be Joo Sang Wook's leading lady?
The drama will air in November on SBS. Sign up for new episode alerts on DramaFever HERE!
