AOA’s Seolhyun Offered Female Lead in Sageuk Drama My Country with Yang Se Jong and Woo Do Hwan


In the annals of dubious K-drama castings choice this could be one of them. Idol-actress Seolhyun of AOA has been offered the female lead role in upcoming sageuk drama My Country starring Yang Se Jong and Woo Do Hwan. Her last drama was Orange Marmalade in 2015 and she was pretty meh, not awful like some other idol-actresses but legit someone who I think doesn’t have a natural career in acting. Unlike Suzy doing mostly acting now, Seolhyun still focuses primarily on her singing career though she did have a smaller part in the war sageuk film The Great Battle in 2018 perhaps testing out her sageuk mettle. But headlining one of the three lead roles in a large scale sageuk drama is quite a step up and I’m not sure she’s ready for it. If she’s a wash then I feel bad for Woo Do Hwan having her after suffering through even worse Joy in The Great Seducer. My Country is currently scheduled for the latter half of 2019 airing on jTBC.



  1. Oh no Woo Do Hwan deserved better 🙁 Idk the other boy but I heard he’s good too. I’m just sad that WDH gonna be third wheel haha. And idk why they choose her I really don’t like idol actors/actresses because I feel like they’re just pretty faces with many fans so directors choose them to make the dramas famous. The only idol actor I like is Junho and I’m not a kpop hater. Just because you can sing, dance, beautiful etc. doesn’t mean u need to be an actor too. So many great actors and actresses wanna be leads in dramas but they can’t cause idols more popular. :/
