Lee Seo Jin Confirmed To Be In Talks For New Political Drama
Lee Seo Jin is considering a return to the small screen!
On July 2, a source from the drama industry reported to Ilgan Sports that the actor had been cast in the lead role of the upcoming OCN drama “Times” (literal title).
The role is that of a reporter named Lee Jin Woo, who makes people in high places afraid in his pursuit of the truth and reveals the true faces behind people in power. Even when he receives threats to shut his mouth, he releases follow-up reports about the threats. He is the main reason that his impoverished paper, the Times, is becoming even poorer, but he is also their star reporter.
Lee Seo Jin’s agency, HOOK Entertainment, stated, “Lee Seo Jin has received a casting offer for the lead role in OCN’s new drama ‘Times’ and he is positively reviewing it.”
“Times” is a political thriller about a woman in 2020, who can make a phone call to the past, and a man in 2015, who team up to save the assassinated president. It aims to premiere sometime in January 2021.
If confirmed, this will be Lee Seo Jin’s first drama since 2019’s “Trap.”
