Jung Hae In In Talks To Join Kang Ha Neul In New KBS Drama

Jung Hae In may be joining Kang Ha Neul in an upcoming drama!

On March 7, Sports Chosun reported that Jung Hae In will be joining the cast of KBS2’s “Trees Die on Their Feet” (literal title).

In response to the report, a source from Jun Hae In’s agency FNC Entertainment stated, “Jung Hae In has received an offer to star in KBS2’s new drama ‘Trees Die on Their Feet,’ but nothing has been decided yet.”

“Trees Die on Their Feet” is about an elderly woman from North Korea who does not have much time left to live and a theatre actor who acts as her grandson in order to fulfill her final wish.

Jung Hae In is in talks to play Bae Dong Jae, the heir to the Samwoo chaebol group which owns a retail chain. With his good looks, he gives off a natural aura of an aristocrat with every little thing he does. Since Bae Dong Jae backs his words with strong logic and conviction, he might hear that he is rude, but he will never hear that his words do not make sense. He is the type of person who can’t help but be acknowledged even though he may seem unlikable.


Earlier in February, it was confirmed that Kang Ha Neul will be playing Yoo Jae Heon, an optimistic character who receives an unexpected request from an elderly gentleman to act as someone’s grandson. Furthermore, it was reported that Youn Yuh Jung and Son Ye Jin were offered roles in the drama. Youn Yuh Jung is in talks to play Ja Geum Soon, a woman born in 1930 in North Korea, and Son Ye Jin has been offered the role of Se Yeon, Ja Geum Soon’s granddaughter who is in charge of Hotel Nakwon. Sung Dong Il is also reportedly in talks for the drama.

Jung Hae In has impressed with his acting in numerous productions including “Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food,” “One Spring Night,” “D.P.,” and most recently “Snowdrop,” raising anticipation for his next project. The actor is also in talks to star in the upcoming drama “Connect” (literal title) by director Takashi Miike.

“Trees Die on Their Feet” will reportedly begin production once the main cast is finalized. Stay tuned for more updates!
