Lee wrote the lead character specifically for Jeong-hie Yun
, a major star of Korean cinema from the 1960s and 1970s. Yun later expressed satisfaction with how the role differed from what she typically played in the past: "I've always had the desire to show people different aspects of my acting and (Lee) provided me with every opportunity to do just that." Prior to Poetry, the last film Yun appeared in was Manmubang ("Two Flags") from 1994. See more
