Cantabile Romance, the upcoming KBS2 Monday-Tuesday drama based on popular manga Nodame Cantabile (by Tomoko Ninomiya) finally has their leading lady. Shim Eun Kyung who was the strongest actress courted to play the titular character “Nodame” (Oh So Ri) finally confirms her appearance to join one of the most anticipated drama this Autumn. Rumors circulated that her contract was finalized last week and the filming schedule has been set. She has started practicing piano to perfectly portray piano prodigy “Nodame”.
The casting fiasco of this drama drove people crazy. Group 8 finally chooses the best actress that the netizens love. Shim Eun Kyung has a very big shoe to fill because of the inevitable comparison between her and the amazing Juri Ueno. I applaud her for taking this challenge to show us once again how talented and versatile actress she is.
Cantabile Romance so far has cast Joo Won as the hero (Cha Yoo Jin), Baek Yoon Sik and Min Do Hee. It’s scheduled to be broadcast on KBS2 in October after Discovery of Romance concludes.
