Producer Jeon Ki Sang recently talked about why he cast f(x)’s Sulli and SHINee’s Minho.
On August 13, Jeon attended a press conference for SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday series To The Beautiful You in Seoul.
He said, “The main characters in the series are a high school boy and girl and the girl disguises herself into a boy. That reminded me of Minho and Sulli.”
“I interviewed the two stars and they had to attend the audition to prove to me that they were good enough to appear in the series.”
“I think Minho is perfect for the series because he plays the role of a high jump gold medalist. As you have seen on TV, Minho is very good at jumping high. Thanks to him, we could shoot nice scenes.”
He also talked about Sulli. “I was worried at first but I knew that Sulli would look good with short hair. When she attended the audition, she was very passionate and said that she would get her hair cut right away. Her easy going personality goes well with the character too.”
Jeon has directed several TV series, including, Boys over Flowers, Witch Yoo Hee, My Girl, and Delightful Girl Choon Hyang.
The series is about a girl named Goo Jae Hee (played by Sulli), who transfers to the same school that high jump gold medalist Kang Tae Joon (played by Min Ho) attends. Besides Sulli and Min Ho, Lee Hyun Woo, Kim Ji Won, Seo Jun Young, Kang Ha Neul, ZE:A’s Hwang Kwang Hee, Yoo Min Kyu, Kim Tae Young, Kang Kyung Joon, and Lee Young Eun will appear on the series, which will start airing on August 15.
