Jo Woo Ri To Pair Up With SHINee’s Onew In ‘Descendants Of The Sun’
It has been reported that rookie actress Jo Woo Ri will join the star-studded line-up in the new KBS 2TV drama titled Descendants of the Sun.
The actress is set to take up the role of a doctor, who is also the fiancée of SHINee’s Onew’s character. She expressed her thoughts regarding the chance to work with big stars such as actress Song Hye Kyo and actor Song Joong Ki in the highly-anticipated drama, saying:
It is such an honor to get to work with senior actors for the big drama like this. I’ll try hard not to become a burden on the other actors and staffs.
Descendants of the Sun portrays the values of life through the dream of love and success of young soldiers from a UN Peacekeeping special security force, and doctors from a medical volunteer team, who live in extremely harsh environments. It is a co-written production of scriptwriters Kim Eun Sook and Kim Won Seok, and directed by Lee Eung Bok.
The drama is scheduled to air in the second half of this year through KBS 2TV.
