Actress Shin Se Kyung might star as the lead female role in the upcoming SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama series Sense of Men and Women, formerly known as The Girl Who Sees Smell.
While a broadcasting representative on February 22nd announced, “Shin Se Kyung has confirmed her casting and is preparing for the new SBS Wed-Thurs drama series ‘Sense of Men and Women,’” her agency, Namoo Actors, mentioned, “It is true that we got an offer, but we have not confirmed anything yet.”
Due to the importance of the female lead role in the drama, many actresses have been considered as a possible candidate for the role. As a result, there were talks that miss A‘s Suzy might be starring in the drama. However, it seems like Shin Se Kyung might take the role after all. This means that the actress is to make a comeback to the small screen after six months of hiatus since KBS 2TV’s drama Iron Man.
The drama, originally based on a popularity webtoon, deals with a story of a guy who became senseless after losing his sister from a murder case and a girl with extrasensory perception who miraculously survived from the murder case but suffers from a memory loss of the time before the incident. Although the lead female role has an optimistic personality, she is the type of person who cannot just stand injustice. She is weak to the weaker ones and strong to the stronger ones. Due to her hasty personality, however, she often causes inconvenience to people surround her.
The lead male role has been confirmed to be JYJ‘s Park Yoochun a while back. PD Baek Soo Chan and script writer Lee Hee Myung will work together for the drama.
Meanwhile, Sense of Men and Women is set to air its premiere episode in April after the completion of Hyde, Jekyll and I.
