Han Ji Hye joins the cast of East of Eden

Hi peeps, gosh you guys are fast and yes Photomofo, it's true. The news just appeared in Newsen today that Han Ji Hye joins the cast of the highly anticipated MBC drama, East of Eden (에덴의 동쪽 ) .

Han reunites with male lead Song Seung-heon after 5 years. They were both in the 2003 hit drama Summer Scent (filmed on the beautiful rolling Boseong Hills).

In East of Eden, Han Ji Hye will play the first love of three men! Producers wanted a strong actress for this role to convey the pain, complications and secrets of the past relationships. After Han Ji Hye's performance in the recent KBS daily drama Likable or Not, producers feel she will be able to carry this role perfectly.

Who you will see in this star studded drama - Song Seung Hun, Yeon Jeong Hoon, Lee Da Hae, Lee Yeon Hee, Han Ji Hye, Yoo Dong Geun, Jo Min Ki, Lee Mee Suk, Kim Bum, Park Hae Jin, Sim Hye Sin etc

Production cost for this drama is a whopping 25 billion KRW with foreign investers from Hong Kong and Macao.
East of Eden is scheduled to start broadcast this August.

Oh yeah, that Dennis Oh actor is in this too. Could East of Eden do for Dennis what My Lovely Sam-soon did for Daniel Henney?
