Actress Go Sung Hee, last seen in MBC’s “The Night Watchman,” is considering the lead female role of the upcoming KBS drama “Spy.” The drama production recently announced confirmation of its male lead, Kim Jaejoong.
“Spy” is loosely based on an Israeli drama called “The Gordin Cell.” It will be a drama about an ex-spy mother and her son who works for the National Intelligence Service. It will be a new hybrid drama, mixing the usual family drama genre with spy thriller elements.
In the drama, Kim Jae Joong will portray Seon Woo, a genius analyst working for the NIS. Actress Bae Jong Ok will play his mother, an ex-spy from North Korea.
Go Sung Hee has been offered the role Seon Woo’s girlfriend who experiences conflict between her love for her family and her love for her boyfriend.
“Spy” is scheduled for a January premiere on KBS.
