On April 13, SM Entertainment confirmed that Krystal was considering a role in the upcoming drama “Hustle” (literal title). A source inside the agency stated, “[Krystal] has received a casting offer for the drama ‘Hustle’ and is currently in the midst of reviewing it with a favorable outlook.”
Media outlet Sports Chosun also reported the same day that actor Song Seung Heon would be starring in the drama as well. Neither the actor nor his agency have yet confirmed the report.
“Hustle” is an action-packed crime drama that will tell the story of an elite team of four notorious con artists. Should Krystal choose to appear in the drama, she will be playing the role of Cha Ah Ryung, a talented driver who grows up on the streets after being abandoned by her parents. Song Seung Heon is reportedly taking on the lead role of Kang Ha Ri, a veteran con artist.
“Hustle” is expected to air sometime in the second half of this year.
