Cosmic Girls’s Bona has been confirmed to be the female lead in KBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Lingerie Girls’ Generation” (tentative title).
On August 17, the agency King Kong by Starship (the two agencies merged earlier this year) stated, “Bona will be appearing in ‘Lingerie Girls’ Generation’ as ‘Lee Jung Hee.’ She will be showcasing a lovable and refreshing side of herself so please show her your love and support.”
“Lingerie Girls’ Generation” is set in the city of Daegu in the 1970s and tells the story of a group of high school girls going through trials of love and friendship. It is written by Yoon Kyung Ah and directed by Hong Suk Gu, who was the producing director (PD) for “Perfect Wife.”
Bona recently made her mark playing the idol trainee Do Hye Ri in KBS’s “Greatest One-Shot.” The acting abilities she displayed on that show as well as her natural Daegu accent made her a top candidate for “Lingerie Girls’ Generation.”
The new drama will air after “School 2017” on September 11.
