S.E.S.’s Eugene may finally be making her long-awaited return to the small screen!
On December 27, Eugene’s agency In Company officially confirmed, “Eugene is in talks for writer Kim Soon Ok’s next drama.”
The upcoming drama in question is reportedly SBS’s “Penthouse” (literal title), which will tell the story of a woman who puts everything on the line to achieve her goal of being able to move into a luxury penthouse in the Gangnam District. In the process, she gradually finds herself turning into a monster.
The dramatic tale of ambition, motherhood, and success in real estate will mark the highly-anticipated reunion of writer Kim Soon Ok and producing director (PD) Joo Dong Min, who last worked together on the hit SBS drama “The Last Empress.”
Should Eugene end up starring in “Penthouse,” it will be her first small-screen role in nearly four years: the idol-turned-actress’s last drama was KBS’s “All About My Mom” back in 2016.
