AOA‘s Seolhyun has been confirmed as the female lead of KBS2TV’s upcoming Friday drama, “Orange Marmalade.”
Acting alongside Yeo Jin Goo and CNBLUE’s Jonghyun, Seolhyun will take on the role of Baek Ma Ri, who is described as an attractive but reserved young vampire. In order to live peacefully with humans and avoid conflicts, she hides her true identity from others.
Seolhyun shares her thoughts on being cast for the role, “I am determined to do well, which makes me feel pressured. However, just by looking at the script, I can tell that filming [the drama] will be fun, and I’m looking forward to it. I am working hard to transform into Ma Ri, so please stay tuned.”
A representative of the drama shares, “Seolhyun has a chic, feminine, and lovely character, but at the same time, she is bright and full of life. Please look forward to the synergy that takes place when Seolhyun meets her on-screen character Baek Ma Ri.”
“Orange Marmalade” is a fantasy romance that revolves around the coexistence of vampires and humans. Based on a webtoon, the story focuses on two contrasting themes: innocent love and social discrimination. The drama is expected to premiere in May, produced by United Asia Management sub-company CJ Entertainment.
