Go Hyun Jung To Star As Lead Of New JTBC Drama
Go Hyun Jung will be returning with the new JTBC drama “A Person Similar to You” (literal title)!
“A Person Similar to You” will be about a woman who is devoted to her desires and another woman who loses the light in her life due to the other. The drama will be about the affair, betrayal, corruption, and revenge that follows their meeting.
Go Hyun Jung will be taking on the lead role of Hee Joo, the woman faithful to her desires. Although she grew up in poverty and had a competitive childhood, Hee Joo becomes a successful artist and essay writer. After her marriage with the successor to a hospital foundation, she’s made a happy family. However, she’s regretful about the meaningless time she’s passed as the mother of two children and a man’s wife. However, her life changes completely once she meets another woman who shines even in poverty.
This will be Go Hyun Jung’s first drama in approximately two years. As Hee Joo, Go Hyun Jung will express her character’s emotions in detail, and viewers are already highly anticipating her portrayal of her character in the upcoming drama.
The production team shared, “Go Hyun Jung was the first actress the production team thought of during the planning stages as someone who could best portray Hee Joo’s strong personality and various sides. Scriptwriter Yoo Bo Ra’s trademark portrayal of emotions and Go Hyun Jung’s matured acting will meet director Im Hyun Wook’s tasteful directing, and we’ll do our best so they can exhibit great synergy. Please show lots of love and interest.”
“A Person Similar To You” will be written by scriptwriter Yoo Bo Ra, who wrote JTBC’s “Rain or Shine” and KBS’s “Secret” and “Snowy Road,” and helmed by director Im Hyun Woo, who worked on JTBC’s “A Person You May Know.”
The drama is slated to premiere in 2021.
