Ji Jin Hee In Talks For New Drama Based On Japanese Mystery Novel
Ji Jin Hee might be making his return to the small screen!
On December 21, DongA.com reported that there was an upcoming Korean drama adaptation of Norizuki Rintaro’s novel “The Tragedy of One” (“Ichi no Higeki” in Japanese). “The Tragedy of One” is a mystery novel about a tragedy that occurs between two families when the detective main character ends up being the third party who provides an alibi to the police’s strongest suspect. The working title for the Korean drama adaptation is “Birth of a Tragedy.”
The drama is still in the early stages of development and casting is still ongoing. DongA.com reported that Ji Jin Hee was one of the actors in talks to play the male lead. Later, a source from his agency stated, “He has received a casting offer and is positively reviewing it.”
tvN is reported to be a strong candidate for the drama’s broadcasting rights. Ji Jin Hee previously starred in the tvN remake of the American show “Designated Survivor.” The actor was also confirmed earlier this year to be starring in a JTBC remake of the BBC drama “Undercover,” which will air sometime in 2021.
