No, that is not a typo. It was announced and confirmed by TaeWon Entertainment that Kim Tae Hee will act as Lee Byung Hun’s lover in “IRIS”.

Since finishing “Love in Harvard” 4 years ago, Kim Tae Hee has been missing from the small-screen and keeping herself busy with CF endorsements and movie filming. Tae Hee character is an agent of NSS, a national intelligence agency and will take part in many missions together with Lee Byung Hun’s character. Kim Tae Hee will play a different role from her past demure image, becoming a rational and strong female and will have a triangle relationship with Lee Byung Hun and another person who is yet to be picked yet. Their romance will serve to increase the tension and excitement in the drama.

The 20-episode drama had been attracting lots of attention because of it’s thriller espionage genre and the big names involved. It’s scheduled for broadcast in Summer 2009 and filming will begin once casting is done.

But if that is the case, what will happen to Son Ye Jin who was only announced as Lee Byung Hun’s lover just 5 days ago? Well, Son Ye Jin was apparently left out as there was a conflict in schedule between her and the drama filming.

>> A comeback for Kim Tae Hee on the drama field.. Too bad she was paired with Lee Byung Hun. Not that I hate Lee Byung Hun… but she’s just too pretty for him, LOL! (just my opinion). ^_^

It has been finalized that Son Ye Jin will be in the upcoming spy drama “IRIS” that is scheduled to air in the first half of 2009. Son Ye Jin is casted as Lee Myung Hee, an agent of NSS, a national intelligence agency.

“IRIS” is a collaboration between director Kang Je Gyu and Taewon Entertainment. The director of KBS2TV’s “Sorry I Love You”, Lee Hyung Min, will also be participating in this mega production, which boasts of 20 billion won in production cost and expected to be filming in many overseas locations.

Son Ye Jin plays an NSS psychological analyst who has a sensitive mind and is able to carry out effective preventive measures to thwart terrorist activities. She plays an important role in aiding Kim Hyeon Jun (Lee Byung Hun) to enter the NSS. As Son Ye Jin is a psychological analyst in this drama, she will not have too many action scenes as opposed to the other characters.

Son Ye Jin will be taking on a role that is very much different from her recent roles in drama “Spotlight” and movie “My Wife Got Married”.

After the promotions for her new movie “My Wife Got Married” is over, Son Ye Jin will officially begin her filming in the drama “IRIS”. In a recent interview, Son Ye Jin expressed, “I will not be discouraged because of the viewership ratings in ‘Spotlight’. I wish to attempt another television drama instead”.

“IRIS” is a 20-episode drama which is scheduled to air in the first half of 2009. Filming will begin in November. Shades of “Time of Dog and Wolf” perhaps?
