Cheondung’s character in Make A Woman Cry, Hyunseo, had to take a leave of absence from Graduate School due to a health problem. He is said to have a heart as fragile as glass. Born without a father, he received much love from his grandparents and mother. But still, somewhere in his weak heart darkened.
Cheondung says about his casting into the role,
To be part of a good work such as “Make A Woman Cry” truly makes me happy. As well as Director Kim Geunhong and writer Ha Chungok, I came to admire many actors and to stand among seniors and teachers is really an honor for me. For the many fans and viewers to be completely immersed into the drama, I will try to show solid acting by learning from the most basic foundations.
Caring for Hyunseo is a nurse named Hyojung, who will be played by Lee Da-in, the daughter and sister of actresses Kyeon Miri and Lee Yubi, and previously acted as Hyun Bin’s first love in the movie Fatal Encounter. A pure character with a kind-hearted and innocent personality dating a bad guy whom she loves like no other, Hyunseo falls in a one-sided love with her and thus establishes the conflict in their story.

This will be Cheondung’s first official activity under APOP/Mystic Ent. and his second major role in a drama. He is set to play the handsome son, Hyunseo, of a wealthy family (whose mother, Eunsoo, will be played by actress Ha Heera) in the upcoming drama entitled “Make A Woman Cry.” A young man in his 20s, the character is described to have a “gentle personality” but also with a “dark side,” a slight departure from the friendly, cheerful and cute image he portrayed in Nail Shop Paris. Although his character Jin then also had a difficult past, it helped him become the good person he was, so it’s interesting to see how Hyunseo will be like this time.
The new MBC Drama will be replacing Rosy Lovers in its primetime slot every weekend (Saturdays and Sundays) at 8:40PM KST after it ends in April. Written by Ha Chung-ok (whose works also include Pots of Gold) and to be directed by Kim Geunhong (who also directed Gyebaek and Heojoon, The Original Story), it was also previously announced that actress Kim Jung-eun (Lovers in Paris) will be starring as the main character Deok-in, a pivotal figure in the lives of students as she herself tries to recover from the loss of her son.
