Hwang Jung Min To Make First Drama Comeback In 8 Years
Actor Hwang Jung Min will be starring in his first drama in eight years!
On February 20, KeyEast Entertainment stated, “Hwang Jung Min will be playing the lead role of Han Joon Hyuk in the upcoming JTBC drama ‘Hush’ (working title), which KeyEast is producing.”
“Hush” is an office drama about newspaper reporters and their everyday struggles, problems, and ethical dilemmas. It is based on the novel “Silence Warning” (literal title).
Hwang Jung Min’s character, Han Joon Hyuk, is described as a veteran reporter who chose his job because he wanted to build a more just world. He has cycled through various newspaper departments but still thinks about the gap between justice and reality.
Park Sung Hye, the CEO of KeyEast, said, “This is a project that we’ve been working affectionately on for a long time, so we are honored that Hwang Jung Min, so famous in the film world, has chosen it. We will do our best to make a production worthy of such a great actor.”
Hwang Jung Min, who debuted in 1994, boasts an impressive filmography, including “Ode to My Father,” “Veteran,” “The Himalayas,” “A Violent Prosecutor,” and “The Wailing.” He has starred in over 30 movies, but has only appeared in two dramas: 2009’s “The Accidental Couple” and 2012’s “Korean Peninsula.”
“Hush” is expected to premiere sometime in the second half of 2020. They are still in the process of casting lead and supporting actors.
Previously, Hwang Jung Min was said to be in talks for another drama from the director of the film “The Spy Gone North.” The actor is currently preparing to film the movie “Negotiation” (literal title), from director Im Soon Rye.
