On April 27, Song Ji Hyo’s agency MY Company confirmed that the actress was considering the lead role in the upcoming drama “Lovely Horribly” (literal title). The agency told media outlet Newsen, “Song Ji Hyo has received a casting offer for the starring role in KBS 2TV’s ‘Lovely Horribly,’ and she is currently reviewing the offer with a positive outlook.”
KBS previously confirmed earlier this month that actor Park Shi Hoo had been offered the male lead in the drama. A source at the broadcast network told news outlet Star Today, “Park Shi Hoo is currently in talks to appear in KBS2’s new drama ‘Lovely Horribly.'”
“Lovely Horribly” will tell the story of a ghostwriter whose screenplays’ plots mysteriously end up happening in real life. Song Ji Hyo is in talks for the role of the prophetic screenwriter, while Park Shi Hoo is in talks to play an A-list actor traumatized by a kidnapping incident. The drama is expected to air sometime in August.
Should Song Ji Hyo take the role, it will be her first time appearing on a public broadcast network drama since she starred in KBS’s “Mandate of Heaven: The Fugitive of Joseon” five years ago.
