Son Ye Jin rumored to step down from the cast of “Trees Die on Their Feet” and replaced by this actress 

Will Son Ye Jin take a break from acting for some time to enjoy her married life? 

On April 22, Ha Ji Won is reportedly in talks to star as the female lead of the new drama “Trees Die on Their Feet.” So far, Kang Ha Neul has been confirmed to join the cast and Jung Hae In is considering the offer. It is worth noting that the female lead role of “Trees Die On Their Feet” was previously offered to Son Ye Jin. Therefore, netizens are wondering that if the production crew now approaches Ha Ji Won, does it mean that Son Ye Jin has turned down the part?

Son Ye Jin is rumored to be no longer starring in “Trees Die On Their Feet” alongside Kang Ha Neul 

Rumors are circulating around that Son Ye Jin stepped down from the cast of “Trees Die On Their Feet” because she just became a wife and wanted to focus on enjoying her married life with Hyun Bin before making a comeback. Previously, Hyun Bin also confirmed his appearance in several movies. It seems that Hyun Bin will become busier this year in both work and personal life. 

At the same time, many netizens are having positive reactions to the possibility of Ha Ji Won taking on the lead role in “Trees Die On Their Feet” because both her acting and beauty are no less outstanding compared to Son Ye Jin. However, some viewers think the big age gap between Ha Ji Won and Kang Ha Neul may affect their chemistry. 

Comments from netizens:

  • Son Ye Jin and Kang Ha Neul already have a pretty big age gap. It’s even bigger with Ha Ji Won. I’m not sure about this. 
  • Can’t they cast an actress around the same age as the male lead???
  • I like Son Ye Jin, but I think I like this pairing better. I don’t mind the age difference, Kang Ha Neul has acted with a lot of older female co-stars before and somehow it seems like Kang Ha Neul and Ha Ji Won will be a good match. I hope she accepts the part. 
  • Can’t wait for Ha Ji Won’s comeback 
  • Looks like Son Ye Jin is going to rest for a while after marriage, what a pity

“Trees Die On Their Feet” tells the story of an old woman from North Korea who doesn’t have much time left to live. Her grandson, a musical actor, is determined to help her fulfill her last wish. The drama also stars Academy Awards winner Youn Yuh Jung, drawing high expectations.
