Korean actress Ku Hye-sun is currently in talks to appear in a new TV series titled "The Musical," according to her agency YG Entertainment on Thursday.
"The casting for the drama has not been finalized... It is one of many offers that she has received," an official at YG said in a phone call with Asia Economic Daily. "She is planning to appear in a drama in the second half of the year and so we are talking with [the producers of] 'The Musical.'"
Talks of her appearance in "The Musical" escalated when she showed up yesterday to watch a performance of musical "Monte Cristo", starring Ock Ju-hyun of former girl band Fin.K.L., accompanied by actor Choi Daniel who is also rumored to appear in "Musical".
YG explained, however, that Ku had only gone to see "Monte Cristo" to support Ock, a close friend of the actress.
Ku, who had originally planned to debut as a singer, started acting in several TV dramas and made a breakthrough with a role in 2006 KBS TV series "Pure in Heart."
Known to many as also a talented artist, novelist, scriptwriter and an aspiring director, Ku will be premiering her first feature film "Magic" at the Jeonju International Film Festival, which kicks off in Korea today.
