Jang Nara And CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa In Talks For New Drama
On September 21, Hankyung Media reported that Jang Nara and Jung Yong Hwa were in talks to star in “Daebak Real Estate” (literal title).
Following reports, a source from Jang Nara’s side confirmed, “She has received an offer to star in ‘Daebak Real Estate,’ and she is currently considering the offer.” A source from Jung Yong Hwa’s agency FNC Entertainment also commented, “It is one of the projects he’s received an offer for, and he’s currently reviewing the offer.”
“Daebak Real Estate” is an occult drama about real estate brokers who exorcise and clean out buildings in which ghosts frequent and people have died in.
Jang Nara has been offered the role of Daebak Real Estate’s boss and exorcist Hong Ji Ah. Although she seems perfect with her beauty and intelligence, she’s actually a hot-tempered exorcist whose fists come before her words. Her ability to exorcise has been passed down from her mother.
Jung Yong Hwa is in talks for the role of Oh In Bum, a con artist who doesn’t believe in ghosts but uses them to earn money. He has the perfect set of skills for a con artist, being able to use his great observation and reasoning skills to determine the causes and effects as well as future predictions for any situation. Hong Ji Ah will work with Oh In Bum in order to solve the secret behind her mother’s death 20 years ago.
Jang Nara has received much praise for her work in various projects including “Go Back Couple,” “The Last Empress,” “VIP,” “Oh My Baby,” and more. If Jung Yong Hwa accepts this role, this will be his first drama in three years since JTBC’s “The Package” in 2017.
According to the reports, “Daebak Real Estate” is slated to premiere in the first half of 2021 through KBS.
