On April 12, a source from MBC revealed that Seohyun is currently in talks to star in “Time,” and a source from her agency also stated that she has received an offer and is currently reviewing it. Seohyun previously took on her first lead role in MBC drama “Bad Thief, Good Thief.”
“Time” is about a man in the face of death, who does everything he can in his last days to help a woman whose life he ruined. It is written by Choi Ho Chul, who also wrote “Secret Love” and “Mask.” It is slated to air in July after “Hold Me Tight.”
Seohyun has been offered the role of Seol Ji Hyun, a bright and optimistic woman who became the breadwinner of her household at a young age. With her fearlessness, inability to stand for justice, and loyalty, she dropped out of college and earned money for her younger sibling and her jobless mother who didn’t meet the best men. Seol Ji Hyun is also the only woman who is left when time comes to a stop.
Previously, Jun So Min and Kim Jung Hyun were in talks for the leading roles in the drama. Jun So Min, however, ultimately declined the role. A source from the her agency stated, “[The actress and the production staff] discussed the direction of the drama for a long time. In the end, she decided not to appear in the drama. We are thankful for their consideration until now. She will meet viewers with another project.”
