Lee Elijah Joins Shin Min Ah And Lee Jung Jae In New Political Drama
Lee Elijah has confirmed her casting in a new drama!
On March 28, her agency, King Kong by Starship, stated, “Lee Elijah has joined JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama in the role of political aide Yoon Hye Won.”
Shin Min Ah and Lee Jung Jae have already confirmed that they will be appearing as the leads in this new drama, which is tentatively titled “Advisor.” “Advisor” tells the story of the political aides and advisors who are the real power behind the spotlight.
Shin Min Ah plays Kang Sun Young, a female politician who attempts to break the glass ceiling in politics, and Lee Jung Jae plays Jang Tae Joon, a “super-advisor” who is aiming for the height of power.
Lee Elijah’s character, Yoon Hye Won, is a Level 6 secretary who has risen to this high position despite her young age. She is more passionate and hardworking than anyone around her, but also has a strong sense of wrong and right and refuses to take the path of temptation. She works in the National Assembly alongside Jang Tae Joon, who is a Level 4 aide.
Members of the National Assembly typically have 9 aides: two Level 4 advisors, two Level 5 secretaries, one secretary each in Levels 6, 7, 8, and 9, and one intern.
