Meanwhile, Han So Hee gained wide recognition after her breakout role as Yeo Da Kyung in the well-received drama "The World of the Married."
If the news regarding the offer to Han So Hee is true and she accepts the project, she will be starring in the fantasy drama alongside Kim Nam Gil and ASTRO Cha Eun Woo.
