The much-awaited announcement of the casting of the Korean version of “Hana Yori Dango” has been overshadowed by the apparent suicide of topstar Choi Jin Sil. The Korean version is titled “Kkot Boda Namja” and will be shown in December as KBS2’s Monday-Tuesday drama.
Lee Min Ho takes the role of Tsukasa. SS501 member Kim Hyun Joong is cast as Hanazawa Rui. Super-duper cutie Kim Beom (or Kim Bum) is Soujiro, while newcomer Kim Joon is Akira.
No announcement had been made for the lead female star.
