Even more actors have joined the cast of the long-awaited JTBC drama “Sacred Divorce” (literal translation)!
Based on the popular webtoon of the same name, “Sacred Divorce” will tell the story of a talented divorce lawyer named Shin Sung Han (the word “sinsunghan” means “sacred” in Korean).
Cho Seung-woo, Han Hye-jin, Kim Sung-kyung and Jung Moon-sung were previously confirmed to participate in the drama, and now Kang Mal-geum, Cha Hwa-yeon, Jung Bae-soo and Han eun-seong (formerly known as Han Jae-seok) have also joined the cast.
Kang Mal-geum will play Kim So-yeon, the youngest daughter of an elderly woman who owns a ramen restaurant. Three best friends Shin Sung-han (Cho Seung-woo), Jang Hyung-geun (Kim Sung-kyung) and Jo Jung-sik (Jung Moon-sung) are regular visitors to the restaurant and consider Grandma’s ramen their food for the soul. Kim So-yeon meets the trio when she temporarily takes over the running of a restaurant due to her mother’s back injury, and she also takes a special interest in one of the three guys.
Cha Hwa Yong will play Ma Geum Hee, the wife of the owner of Daenam Electronics, a leading company in the industry. Her and Shin Sung Han’s families were tied by marriage. Having grown up as the only daughter in a wealthy family, Ma Geun Hee is a man with a fierce spirit who suddenly faces a big turning point in his late life.
Jeon Bae-soo will play the role of lawyer Park Yoo-seok. Despite the fact that he is smart, Park Yoo-seok’s selfish personality always makes him conflict with others. Despite being a partner of a large law firm, he is always wary of keeping an eye on Shin Son Han, who has his own private practice.
Finally, Han Eun-sung will play Choi Joon, a trainee lawyer at Park Yoo-seok’s law firm. Choi Jun graduated from law school with excellent grades before starting his career at a prestigious law firm. He has a huge curiosity and interest in Shin Sung Han, the so-called “BTS” in the world of lawyers, and later it is this interest that eventually changes his life overnight. A promising lawyer with a strong spirit and a huge curiosity, Choi Joon is a funny and silly character who will add fun to the drama.
The premiere of “Sacred Divorce” is scheduled for March 4 at 22:30 Korean time. kst.
