T-ara’s Jiyeon, Lee Tae Sun, Jang Eui Soo, And Go Sung Min Cast In New Web Drama
The upcoming K-beauty web drama “Next Door Witch J” (literal translation) has announced its main cast!
“Next Door Witch J” was pitched through the Korea Creative Content Agency’s “Story to Book” in 2018. It is also the first selection for the 2020 pilot division of the Broadcasting Content Production Support Project. It will be produced by Kim Jong Hak Production, who has produced hit web dramas like “High-End Crush” and “Gogh, the Starry Night.”
T-ara’s Jiyeon has been cast as Seo Je Yi, the star beauty creator who makes content under the name “Next Door Witch J.” She is a smooth talker who isn’t afraid to say what she feels, and that has made her successful as a beauty creator.
Lee Tae Sun has been cast as Lee Woo Bin, the CEO of a cosmetics start-up company. His products get acknowledged by Seo Je Yi, the star beauty creator, but he struggles to get close to her as a person. He is highly intelligent but has zero social skills when it comes to dating.
Jang Eui Soo has been cast as Lee Tae Kyung, the director of the company MCN, which is an agency that specializes in managing beauty content creators. Tall and handsome, Lee Tae Kyung secretly has a crush on Seo Je Yi as well, making him one side of a love triangle with Lee Woo Bin.
Go Sung Min has been cast as Oh Oh Young, another beauty creator who has more than 1 million subscribers. She used to be Seo Je Yi’s idol, but she soon became a troublemaker with “star disease,” demanding special treatment and the quality of her content going down. She is currently Seo Je Yi’s rival.
“Next Door Witch J” is set to air sometime in the first half of 2021.
