Kim Hye Soo might be starring in a new drama soon!

On July 30, a source from the entertainment industry stated to a media outlet, “Kim Hye Soo has received a casting offer from ‘Hyena’ and is in final negotiations.”

A source from Kim Hye Soo’s agency, HODU&U Entertainment, stated later that day, “‘Hyena’ is one of the projects that Kim Hye Soo is reviewing. She is currently just in talks.”

“Hyena” will be directed by Jang Tae Yoo (“Tree With Deep Roots” and “My Love from the Star“) and tells the story of lawyers who cater to the elite “1 percent” of society.

Back in May, it was reported that Song Hye Kyo and Joo Ji Hoon were in talks to star in the drama, although Song Hye Kyo eventually turned down her offer.

It is reported that Kim Hye Soo has been offered the same role that Song Hye Kyo was in talks for. The character, Jung Geum Ja, is described as a lawyer who chases success without caring about how she gets there. She wasn’t able to attend university because she came from a poor background, but eventually passed the bar exam and is now fiercely ambitious for a better future.

If Kim Hye Soo accepts the offer, it will be her first TV drama since tvN’s “Signal” in 2016.
