A few days ago, news floated about Shin Min Ah and Jo Jung Suk‘s offer to star in a movie. Both of their agencies revealed then that both actors were positively reviewing the offer. Today, casting of Shin Min Ah and Jo Jung Suk in a remake of Lee Myung Se‘s My Love, My Bride is confirmed. It will be their first time to work together. Jo Jung Suk’s career has been red hot since his star-making turn as a rigid, unwilling romantic soldier in King 2 Hearts. He just came off a very successful and highly rated drama with IU, You’re the best Lee Soon Shin and the box office movie The Face Reader. Shin Min Ah, on the other hand hasn’t starred in a movie since 2009’s A Million. Her last TV drama was last year’s not-so-successful Arang and the Magistrate with Lee Jun Ki. I’m not quite sure about their chemistry since I haven’t seen them in anything together. However, I know for a fact that this movie is a Korean classic so I am curious to see how this classic will fare in a modern setting.
My Love, My Bride 나의사랑 나의신부 is a 1990 romantic comedy movie by award winning director Lee Myung Se. It starred the late Choi Jin Sil who got a Grand Bell Awards for best actress for her role. It is a simple story about college sweethearts who got married right after graduation believing that their love can overcome any odds. Pre-production has already begun.
