Published Categorized as Kdrama and Movies

Kang Ha Neul has already decided on his next project, a new drama called “Trees Die on Their Feet.”

“Trees Die on Their Feet” tells the story of an elderly woman who came from North Korea, she doesn’t have much time to live, a theatre actor acts as her grandson to fulfill her last wish. This changes his life.

Kang Ha Neul will be playing Yoo Jae Heon, an optimistic man who has high self-esteem and self-love despite growing up under difficult conditions. He’s an unknown theatre actor from a local theatre company. He receives the unexpected request out of the blue from an elderly gentleman to act as someone’s grandson.

“Trees Die on Their Feet” was the same drama in which Youn Yuh Jung and Son Ye Jin were reportedly in talks for. Youn Yuh Jung is in talks to play Ja Geum Soon, a woman born in 1930 in North Korea, while Son Ye Jin was offered the role of Se Yeon, Ja Geum Soon’s granddaughter who is in charge of Hotel Nakwon.

The upcoming drama will be helmed by director Yoon Sang Ho of “River Where the Moon Rises,” “King Maker: The Change of Destiny,” and “Saimdang, Light’s Diary,” and written by scriptwriter Jo Sung Geol of “Hitman: Agent Jun” and “Midnight Runners.” Kang Ha Neul has previously worked with the director and screenwriter on different projects.

My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.

Kang Ha Neul is back baby! At last, its been too long.

Kang Ha Neul has been focusing on movies recently and I am glad to hear he’s coming back for new dramas. The storyline sounds great and very promising, I have a feeling I am going to cry a lot watching it.

If Youn Yuh Jung and Son Ye Jin, it would be even better, just imagine such a star-studded cast together. Man, 2022 is shaping out to be a great year for kdrama, so many amazing projects.

I am so excited to see the drama.

Note: article previously stated that it was Kang Ha Neul’s first drama in three years, the error has been corrected.
