Shim Eun-woo in talks to appear in upcoming JTBC drama ‘Fly High Butterfly’

Actress Shim Eun-woo might appear in another JTBC drama!

On August 19, Shim’s agency announced that the actress has received an offer to appear in a JTBC series. “Shim Eun-woo is considering to appear in JTBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Fly High Butterfly. When the appearance is confirmed, we plan to start shooting in October,” the agency shared.

The inspirational drama series will tell the story of people working at a hair salon who strive to love themselves for who they are and embrace all their flaws. The series aims to target young audience to encourage them to learn how to accept themselves, with its theme centering on discovering one’s passion and self-love.

The production has recently announced its target actors to play the characters, starting with Choi Daniel (The Ghost Detective, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay), Kim Hyang-gi (At Eighteen), Lee Seo-hwan (Memorials), and Oh Yoon-ah (Once Again). If they accept their respective offers, they will lead the cast of the series.

Shim Eun-woo has received a lot of love with her last character Min Hyun-seo in the record-breaking The World of the Married, an infidelity-themed series from JTBC that ended its broadcast just last May. Curiosity is raised on whether Shim is considering a role opposite of her last.

PD Kim Da-ye of Hello Dracula (2020) will be working together with Kim Bo-kyung of The Wind Blows (2019) in helming the production of Fly High Butterfly (literal title). Meanwhile, screenwriter Park Yeon-seon of Hello, My Twenties! (2 seasons/2016, 2017) will be penning the script.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
