Lee Ji Ah, Kim So Yeon, Eugene, And More Confirm For Upcoming SBS Drama
SBS has revealed the main cast of their upcoming drama called “The Penthouse” (literal title).
September 2, the network said the new Monday-Tuesday drama has been confirmed to air this year, and that the main cast includes Lee Ji Ah, Kim So Yeon, Eugene, Uhm Ki Joon, Shin Eun Kyung, Bong Tae Gyu, Yoon Jong Hoon, Park Eun Seok, and Yoon Joo Hee.
“The Penthouse” tells the story of a woman who strives to achieve her goal of entering high society by becoming the “queen” in the 100th floor penthouse in Gangnam, the pinnacle of success in her eyes, as well as women who had no choice but to become villains in order to protect themselves.
Lee Ji Ah will be playing Shim Soo Ryeon, a graceful, elegant, dignified woman who has never once been poor in her life and is a bona fide penthouse queen.
Kim So Yeon is Cheon Seo Jin, a wealthy woman who is the epitome of showy and arrogant and who harbors a warped ambition.
Eugene, on the other hand, is Oh Yoon Hee, someone who has never once experienced wealth and who has lived her life with gritted teeth, having done any and every job she had the chance to do. Oh Yoon Hee does everything in her power to enter high society so that her child can have a better chance at success.
Uhm Ki Joon plays Joo Dan Tae, a genius of real estate who rakes in money with every investment he makes. Joo Dan Tae is the husband of Shim Soo Ryeon, played by Lee Ji Ah.
Shin Eun Kyung plays Kang Ma Ri, a woman who has recently come into wealth and leads a secretive double life.
Bong Tae Gyu is Lee Kyu Jin, the only son — and momma’s boy — of a wealthy family of judges and lawyers, and is himself a lawyer at a law firm.
Yoon Jong Hoon is Ha Yoon Cheol, an ambitious man who believes that a man must hold wealth and power. He is the husband of Cheon Seo Jin, played by Kim So Yeon, and the head of surgery in the VIP department of the hospital where he works.
Park Eun Seok is Gu Ho Dong, a cunning physical education teacher at an arts school, and Yoon Joo Hee is Go Sang Ah, a former announcer and the wife of Lee Kyu Jin, played by Bong Tae Gyu.
A source from the drama said, “The most anticipated drama of the end of the year, ‘The Penthouse’ has selected its network, and it will close out 2020 for SBS in a big way. Please look forward to an unprecedented drama that will make dramas a major social talking point.”
