Update: Lee Yoo Ri Confirmed For New Body-Switching Drama
Updated November 20 KST:
On November 20, a source from her agency The Jun Entertainment stated, “Lee Yoo Ri finalized her appearance in ‘Spring Turns to Spring’ after the end of ‘Hide and Seek.'”
“Spring Turns to Spring” is a fantasy comedy about two woman — an announcer who only cares about herself and a former actress who is now the wife of a National Assembly member — and how they end up switching bodies.
It is set to air in January 2019.
Actress Lee Yoo Ri may have a new drama in the works!
On October 23, it was reported that Lee Yoo Ri would be appearing in the upcoming MBC drama “Spring Turns to Spring.” A source from MBC’s drama department responded to the reports and stated, “Lee Yoo Ri is currently in talks to star in the drama.”
“Spring Turns to Spring” will be a fantasy drama that follows the lives of people whose souls have switched bodies. Instead of being a romantic drama in which the souls of a man and woman switch, the drama will be a heartwarming story of two women whose souls switch bodies, giving them to live out their dreams and gain new experiences.
If Lee Yoo Ri accepts the offer, she is set to play anchorwoman Shin Sun Ah, a beautiful and intelligent woman who appears to come from wealth but actually struggled through many financial hardships in her past. The actress is currently starring in the MBC weekend drama “Hide and Seek,” and if she takes on this new role, she will most likely start filming immediately after “Hide and Seek” wraps up.
“Spring Turns to Spring” is set to premiere in January 2019 as the follow-up to MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Red Moon, Blue Sea” (literal translation), which will premiere in November.
