[news] Eugene juggles drama role with cable show

Eugene has a drama about to premiere (KBS’s Baker Kim Tak-gu starring Yoon Shi-yoon) but now she’s adding a cable program to her schedule; she has been chosen to host style network O’live’s new program Get It Beauty, which is currently in the works and will overlap with her acting gig. The drama begins in June, and the cable show in July.

Eugene seems a logical choice for the beauty program, which will feature skincare and makeup tips, as she recently put out her own beauty book. She also hosted a previous program on O’live, Eugene’s Makeup Diary, which was popular with viewers.

I’m not that interested in the cable program, but I do wonder how Eugene is going to manage two shows at the same time — Baker King Kim Tak-gu premieres next week. As it is being planned for approximately 30 episodes, she’ll be busy acting in it well through the summer and into fall. There have been a handful of stars who have hosted cable or variety programs while doing television dramas, but that just seems crazy, since doing one drama is enough to overwork some stars into exhaustion.

Baker Kim Tak-gu will replace Cinderella’s Sister and starts on June 9.
