Last year, SM Entertainment announced that they would be producing a Korean drama adaptation, ‘To the Beautiful You’, off the insanely popular Japanese comic, ‘Hana Kimi‘.
Although several names have been on and off the potential cast list, rumors started circulating last month that SHINee‘s Minho and f(x)‘s Sulli may be selected for the lead roles. It seems those rumors have finally been confirmed, for a source within the drama staff revealed that Minho and Sulli have indeed been cast as the leading roles for the drama.
PD Jun Ki Sang of ‘Boys Over Flowers‘ will be directing the drama, and it’s also been revealed that the drama has been picked up by SBS to begin airing in the second half of this year as well.
SBS had originally aimed to begin airing it as the follow-up to ‘Ghost’ but delayed it to the second half of the year instead, putting ‘Faith’ in its place.
