Yoon Eun-hye, the popular Hallyu star known for her roles in numerous K-dramas and K-movies, will be making a return to the Korean small screen this year in Fluttering Love. It has been five years since the “Coffee Prince” has starred in a K-drama.
News of Yoon Eun-hye making her return to K-dramas were first reported earlier this year. Back then, Korean news outlet OSEN reported that the “Coffee Prince” (as that is Eun-hye’s breakout role in the K-drama of the same name) was in talks to lead a K-drama remake of popular web novel Fluttering Love.
The following month on May 17, J Army Entertainment — the entertainment agency Eun-hye is signed to — confirmed her involvement in the upcoming K-drama.
Right now, there is a lot of news and K-drama community chatter pertaining to Yoon Eun-hye as well as Fluttering Love simply because the Maeil Broadcasting Network (MBN) recently announced the K-drama will be airing by the end of this month after Devilish Joy wraps up.
Opposite Eun-hye will be Chun Jung-myung, another Hallyu star who hasn’t acted in a while. It is not as long a hiatus as Eun-hye but Jung-myung’s last K-drama was two years ago in Master: God of Noodles. Veteran actress Han Go-eun and newcomer Joo Woo-jae will fill in the roles of second leads.
