Song Hye Kyo And Joo Ji Hoon In Talks To Star In New Legal Drama
On May 30, it was reported that Song Hye Kyo and Joo Ji Hoon would be starring in upcoming drama “Hyena” (literal title). In response to the reports, a source from Song Hye Kyo’s agency stated, “Song Hye Kyo has received an offer for ‘Hyena.'” A source from Joo Ji Hoon’s agency also confirmed that the actor had received an offer.
“Hyena” is about lawyers who cater to the upper class, the 1 percent. Though the main characters are lawyers, it is not a typical legal drama as they use the law as a weapon of survival.
Song Hye Kyo has been offered the role of lawyer Jung Geum Ja. Crossing the boundaries of law and lawlessness, justice and injustice, ethics and corruption, she is a true hyena that chases after success and money no matter what it takes. Armed with the strongest survival instincts, she endures through it all.
If he accepts his offer, Joo Ji Hoon will be playing successful, elite lawyer Yoon Hee Jae. Confident in his abilities, he possesses a brilliant mind that is wrapped around his ego. Using his skills to support the highest in the land, he’s an expert at maneuvering the law to cater to their needs.
Song Hye Kyo most recently appeared in the tvN drama “Encounter,” which concluded in January. In the drama, she played Cha Soo Hyun, a politician’s daughter and divorced heiress. Joo Ji Hoon recently starred in Netflix’s “Kingdom” as well as MBC’s “The Item.”
“Hyena” will be produced by Key East Entertainment, and is slated to air in November.
