The Chinese adaptation comes alongside a host of Korean dramas and variety programs that have been licensed for remakes in China as well as around the world.

The Chinese version of Queen In-hyun’s Man will be titled The Empress’ Man and is set to air on Hunan TV beginning in February of 2015. While filming is rumored to begin in December, there has also been speculation that The Empress Man will follow a live shoot schedule.

The casting marks Nanas first venture into acting. She will be the only Korean cast member, acting alongside popular Chinese actors Zheng Shuang and Jing Boran who will play the two leads. It is unclear what role Nana will be taking on in the series.

Another fact that remains unclear is Nanas proficiency in Chinese. However, Pledis assured her dedication to both learning her Chinese lines and acting in a statement released November 28th.

We are delighted Nana will be able to participate in this work. This is Nanas first time acting and she is looking positively toward the challenge, with high expectations Nanas commitment to being both an actress and singer is very strong. She is preparing diligently, as her lines are in Chinese.

While Nana and Pledis are excited about the endeavor, fan response has been mixedalthough predominantly negativeon both the Chinese and Korean sides. Many are wondering why (and how) Nana was cast as the only Korean cast member in a Chinese adaptation, especially with no prior acting experience.

Readers: How do you feel about Nanas venture into acting? Furthermore, how do you think the Chinese adaptation of Queen In-hyuns Man will fare?

Directed by Kim Je Young, the movie stars Chun Jung Myung as Young Soo, the timid husband of the seemingly-perfect, Hee Joo (Kim Min Jung). After uncovering Hee Joo’s past by chance, the couple’s relationship goes through a turbulent period in the romantic comedy movie.

Rather than the more aggressive and charismatic roles Chun Jung Myung has displayed in the past, Young Soo is said to be a soft-spoken character who is quite innocent when it comes to love. Kim Min Jung’s Hee Joo character is described as both a sexy and merit-filled one.

The movie begins shooting on December 17.

[Period Drama 'Kings Dream'] Actress Hong Eun Hee Cast as New Queen Sun Deok

Actress Hong Eun Hee will be joining the cast of “King’s Dream” as Duk Man who later becomes Queen Sun Deok.

The staff for “King’s Dream” said Hong Eun Hee will be joining the cast after it was confirmed last week that Park Joo Mi would not be returning to the project. They said that it was difficult to find an actress that could take over the role of Queen Sun Deok who is one of the central characters in the drama.

The drama’s reps added that the reason they decided to cast Hong was because she actively pursued the part, her current image is not too far off from Queen Sun Deok’s image and she is a great actress.

The actress confirmed her casting over the weekend and participated in her first script reading session with the rest of the cast members on November 26th. She will be taking part in outdoor filming over the week.
