A drama representative said on November 1 that the two have been cast, and that they had their first script reading on October 31. “Punch” will be the first drama appearance in three years for both actors, Kim Rae Won having last starred in 2011’s “A Thousand Days’ Promise” and Kim Ah Joong in “Sign.”
“Punch” is a legal drama portraying the last six months of Prosecutor Park Jung Hwan, the investigative chief of the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office, and juxtaposes justice and corruption in the legal world. Kim Rae Won will be playing Park Jung Hwan, who changes his way of life once in the face of death, and Kim Ah Joong will be playing Shin Ha Kyung, who is seemingly perfect but has difficulty winning Park Jung Hwan’s heart.
“Punch” will air sometime mid-December following the conclusion of “Secret Door.”
