On the 21st, a media outlet reported that Kim Hee Sun and Yoo Hae Jin were cast to play a couple in the upcoming rom-com. Both actors’ agencies have confirmed their appearances in the movie, which naturally leads to interest in Kim Hee Sun’s return to the Korean cinema 19 years after A Man Who Went to Mars.
