Kim Tae Hee is Lee Byung Hun’s Lover in IRIS

No, that is not a typo. It was announced and confirmed by TaeWon Entertainment that Kim Tae Hee will act as Lee Byung Hun’s lover in “IRIS”.

Since finishing “Love in Harvard” 4 years ago, Kim Tae Hee has been missing from the small-screen and keeping herself busy with CF endorsements and movie filming. Tae Hee character is an agent of NSS, a national intelligence agency and will take part in many missions together with Lee Byung Hun’s character. Kim Tae Hee will play a different role from her past demure image, becoming a rational and strong female and will have a triangle relationship with Lee Byung Hun and another person who is yet to be picked yet. Their romance will serve to increase the tension and excitement in the drama.

The 20-episode drama had been attracting lots of attention because of it’s thriller espionage genre and the big names involved. It’s scheduled for broadcast in Summer 2009 and filming will begin once casting is done.

But if that is the case, what will happen to Son Ye Jin who was only announced as Lee Byung Hun’s lover just 5 days ago? Well, Son Ye Jin was apparently left out as there was a conflict in schedule between her and the drama filming.
