Even more actors have joined the cast of JTBC’s highly anticipated drama “The Holy Divorce” (literal translation)!
Based on the popular web movie of the same name, “Sacred Divorce” will tell the story of a talented divorce lawyer named Shin Sung Han (the word “sinsunghan” means “sacred” in Korean).
Cho Seung-woo, Han Hye-jin, Kim Sung-kyung, and Jung Moon-sung were previously confirmed for the drama, and now Kang Mal-geum, Cha Hwa-yeon, Jung Bae-soo, and Han eun-seong ( formerly known as Han Jae-seok) have also joined the cast.
Kang Mal-geum will play Kim So-yeon, the youngest daughter of an elderly woman who owns a ramen restaurant. Three best friends Shin Sung-han (Cho Seung-woo), Jang Hyung-geun (Kim Sung-kyung) and Jo Jung-sik (Jung Moon-sung) are regulars at the restaurant and consider grandma’s ramen as their food for the soul . Kim So Yeon meets the trio when she temporarily takes over the running of a restaurant due to her mother’s back injury, and also takes a special interest in one of the three boys.
Cha Hwa Yong will play Ma Geum Hee, the wife of the owner of Daenam Electronics, a leading company in the industry. Her and Shin Sung Han’s families are related by marriage. Raised as the only daughter in a wealthy family, Ma Gun Hee is a man with a fierce spirit who suddenly faces a major turning point at the end of his life.
Jeon Bae-soo will play the role of lawyer Park Yoo-seok. Despite the fact that he is smart, Park Yoo-seok’s selfish personality always causes him to come into conflict with others. Although he is a partner of a large law firm, he is always careful to keep an eye on Shin Sung Han, who has his own private practice.
Finally, Han Eun-sung will play Choi Joon, a trainee lawyer at Park Yoo-seok’s law firm. Choi Jun graduated from law school with honors before starting his career at a prestigious law firm. He has a great curiosity and interest in Shin Sung Han, the so-called “BTS” in the lawyer world, and later it is this interest that changes his life overnight. A promising lawyer with a strong spirit and immense curiosity, Choi Joon is a funny and silly character who will add fun to the drama.
The premiere of “The Holy Divorce” is scheduled for March 4 at 10:30 PM KST. kst.
