Jung Il Woo, Kang Ji Young, and Lee Hak Joo may be starring in a new drama together!
On January 11, media outlets reported that the three actors were considering offers to appear in the upcoming drama “Late Night Snack Man and Woman” (literal translation). Kang Ji Young’s agency had already confirmed in December that the actress was reviewing the offer.
“Late Night Snack Man and Woman” is a romantic comedy about a love triangle in which a man and a woman fight over the same man. Sung Hoon had previously been in talks to play the lead role, but the casting offer reportedly fell through.
Jung Il Woo has now reportedly been offered the role of Park Jin Sung instead. Park Jin Sung is a star chef who appears on a cooking variety show (also called “Late Night Snack Man and Woman”). The producing director of the show is the female lead, Kim Ah Jin, which is the role that Kang Ji Young is in talks for.
If Jung Il Woo agrees to the role, it will be his first drama in about a year. He previously starred in the historical drama “Haechi” on SBS.
