Singer and actress IU might be Korea’s Ueno Juri in the Korean version of “Nodame Cantabile.”

She exchanged opinions recently with production company Group 8 about taking on the lead role in the Korean version of “Nodame Cantabile.” IU recently played the female lead role another Group 8 production, KBS 2TV’s “Beautiful Man,” so she is a natural choice for “Nodame Cantabile.” However, as specifics about the production have not yet been released, it is still too early to bring up about casting even if IU has expressed her interest in the project.

A broadcasting representative said, “Both sides are looking positively at IU’s appearance. The drama is still in its early stages and since it is looking at being aired in the second half of the year, casting is not an issue that has to be decided on right away
