Actress Yoon So-hee will be making a guest appearance in MBC’s new Wednesday and Thursday drama The Spies Who Loved Me.
An official from the drama has announced, “Yoon So-hee will play the role of Sophie Ahn, an informant that Jun Ji-hoon is looking for who is also coincidentally Kang Ah-reum’s friend, and although it is a just special appearance, Sophie Ahn is going to be a key person closely connected with various characters in the story.”
The new rom-com spy-themed series follows a woman who gets accidentally involved in the world of espionage after being married to two undercover agents. The drama stars Yoo In-na (Touch Your Heart) as Kang Ah-reum, a wedding dress designer who gets entangled in the world of spies and secret missions because of her involvement with two top agents; Shinhwa’s Eric Mun (Eccentric! Chef Moon) as Ah-reum’s ex-husband Jun Ji-hoon, who is an undercover Interpol agent; and Lim Ju-hwan (The Game: Towards Zero) as her current husband Derek Hyun, a diplomat who is an undercover corporate spy.
Yoon So-hee also appeared in one of the drama’s teasers. In the preview video released on October 15, her character Sophie Ahn is seen waiting for someone while dressed in pure white. In the next clip, Sophie reappears in a messed-up state and seems to be desperately running away when she encountered someone. In the background, Jun Ji-hoon’s voice can be heard saying, “It seems that the identity of my informant was discovered,” while overlapping with the scene of Sophie being chased. This further raises the viewers’ curiosity about Yoon So-hee’s character.
The actress took a break from small screen projects for two years after her last series back in 2018, Witch’s Love, where she played the lead role. Prior to that, Yoon So-hee managed to land various main and supporting roles in many series, such as Meloholic (2017), The Emperor: Owner of the Mask (2017), Queen of Ring (2017), Memory (2016), and One More Time (2016).
The Spies Who Loved Me will air its pilot episode this coming Wednesday, October 21, replacing When I Was the Most Beautiful in its 9:30 p.m. KST airing slot.
