Super Junior’s Choi Siwon and Donghae has been cast into Taiwanese drama Glamorous Challenge as the leading male roles.
According to Taiwan iFensi on the 24th, “The decision to cast Choi Siwon and Donghae into Glamorous Challenge has been finalized.”
Glamorous Challenge is a remake drama of a Japanese comic titled Skip Beat about a girl that gets betrayed by her long time boyfriend. In an attempt to get revenge, she debuts as a celebrity and the drama unfolds with the various events she experiences soon after.
Taiwanese actress Lin Yichen will be playing the leading female role. Choi Siwon and Donghae already appeared in her music video for Firefly last September which was how the two were brought up during casting discussions.
Choi Siwon’s character is a successful celebrity that chooses business over his girlfriend. Although he is able to capture the hearts of women with his charismatic looks, he often looks back on his memories with his innocent girlfriend.
Donghae will be playing the role of a top star and is regarded as having the best looks and acting skills in the industry. He is also a mysterious figure of the leading female’s childhood, having disappeared when they were both young.
This will be Donghae’s first time acting so much attention has been put on whether he will be able to express a character with perfect looks but awkward emotions.
Glamorous Challenge will begin filming by March of next year.
