Kim Min Jung Joins Ji Sung And GOT7’s Jinyoung In Talks For New Drama
On December 4, Kim Min Jung’s agency confirmed that the actress is currently in talks for a starring role in the upcoming drama “Devil Judge” (literal translation). A representative of the agency stated, “Kim Min Jung has been offered the female lead in tvN’s new drama ‘Devil Judge,’ which is scheduled to air next year, and she is currently reviewing the offer.”
“Devil Judge” will tell the story of a head judge who turns the court into a reality show in order to punish evil—and the chase that ensues as another judge attempts to learn the head judge’s true identity.
Ji Sung is currently in talks to star as Kang Yo Han, the titular “devil judge,” while Jinyoung is in talks for the role of judge Kim Ga On. Park Gyu Young is also in talks to appear in the drama as detective Yoon Soo Hyun.
Kim Min Jung is said to have been offered the role of the tough and ambitious Jung Sun Ah, who is the only person capable of making Kang Yo Han break a sweat. Although she was born into an impoverished family, she was able to climb the ladder of society due to her brilliant mind, innate charm, and her unparalleled thirst for success and power.
Should Kim Min Jung and Ji Sung both accept their roles, they will be reuniting for the first time in 12 years: the two actors starred together in the MBC drama “New Heart” back in 2007.
Are you excited to potentially see Kim Min Jung, Ji Sung, Jinyoung, and Park Gyu Young in this new drama?
