Kim Yoo Jung and Ahn Hyo Seop may be uniting for a new drama!
On October 5, an industry representative reported that Kim Yoo Jung will be starring in upcoming SBS drama “Hong Chun Gi” (working title).
In response to the report, her agency Awesome ENT commented, “Kim Yoo Jung has received an offer to star in ‘Hong Chun Gi’ and is reviewing [the offer].”
Based on a novel of the same name written by Jung Eun Gwol, who also wrote the original novels for “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and “The Moon Embracing the Sun,” “Hong Chun Gi” is a fantasy romance drama set in the Joseon era. Kim Yoo Jung has been offered the role of Hong Chun Gi, Joseon’s only female painter with shining beauty and bright energy. She also possesses an extraordinary memory.
Ahn Hyo Seop is in talks to play the male lead. The two actors previously met for “Clean with Passion for Now,” but Ahn Hyo Seop eventually had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts after the drama postponed production.
“Hong Chun Gi” will be led by “My Love From the Star” and “Hyena” director Jang Tae Yoo.
