Honey Lee In Talks To Star As Prosecutor In New SBS Drama
Honey Lee may be playing a prosecutor again!
On January 29, Sports Chosun reported that the actress will play the female lead in the new SBS drama “One the Woman” (literal title). Previously, Kim Ah Joong was in talks for the role, but she has reportedly declined the offer.
Her agency Saram Entertainment later confirmed the reports, saying, “Honey Lee received an offer to star in ‘One the Woman’ and is positively reviewing it.”
“One the Woman” is about a corrupt female prosecutor trying to find her memories after getting amnesia and switching lives with a modest chaebol daughter-in law who looks exactly the same as her. Lee Won Geun and Lee Sang Yoon are also in talks to appear in the drama.
If Honey Lee chooses to accept the role, she will play Jo Yeon Joo, a prosecutor and the only daughter of the action-taker in a gangster group. While chasing a suspect who looks very similar to her, she gets into a mysterious car accident. Her life changes when she wakes up from a coma with her life swapped with that of the youngest daughter of a chaebol in the top 20 of the financial world. The woman is also the daughter-in-law of BK Group, one of the leading groups in Korea, following an arranged marriage she didn’t want.
“One the Woman” is slated to air in the second half of this year.
Honey Lee previously acted as a prosecutor in the hit SBS drama “The Fiery Priest.”
