Lee Mi Yeon And Ji Jin Hee In Talks To Star In Korean Remake Of BBC Series “Undercover”
On April 6, it was reported that JTBC is currently planning a remake of the BBC series “Undercover,” starring Ji Jin Hee and Lee Mi Yeon.
A source from King Kong by Starship, Lee Mi Yeon’s agency, responded by stating, “It’s true that she has received an offer for the drama and is currently looking over it.” Ji Jin Hee’s agency also stated, “He’s positively looking over the offer. As he is still in the consideration stage, nothing has been decided yet.”
“Undercover” is a BBC series that aired in 2016 and follows the story of a British lawyer in a long-term legal battle to prove the innocence of a man on death row in the U.S., while her husband’s past comes back to haunt him and he does whatever he can to hide it. The Korean remake is set to be directed by Song Hyun Wook, who has worked on hit dramas like “Another Oh Hae Young” and “Beauty Inside.”
If they accept their roles, this will be Ji Jin Hee’s first drama since last year’s “Designated Survivor: 60 Days,” which was a remake of a U.S. series, and for Lee Mi Yeon, this will be her first full-time appearance in a drama in 10 years since 2010’s KBS drama “The Great Merchant Kim Man Deok.” She made a cameo appearance in tvN’s “Reply 1988” in 2015 but this could be her official return to the small screen in ten years.
