Seo Ye Ji And Park Byung Eun In Talks To Lead New tvN Drama
On September 7, news outlet Munhwa Ilbo reported that Seo Ye Ji is reviewing an offer for the leading role in tvN’s “Eve’s Scandal” (literal title), a drama scheduled to air in the first half of 2022.
A source from tvN shared with Munhwa Ilbo, “We gave the script to Seo Ye Ji, and we are currently in the process of coordinating our opinions and waiting for her final response.” Her agency GOLDMEDALIST has confirmed that the actress was offered the role and is reviewing it.
It was also revealed that Park Byung Eun is in talks for the drama alongside Seo Ye Ji. A source from C-JeS Entertainment shared, “Park Byung Eun was offered a role in tvN’s new drama ‘Eve’s Scandal’ and is looking over it.”
“Eve’s Scandal” is a romance drama dealing with the inside story of a chaebol’s 2 trillion won (approximately $1.7 billion) divorce lawsuit that shocks the entire nation. Written by Yoon Young Mi, the drama is rumored to be a hot topic among industry insiders for having a solid script.
Seo Ye Ji is said to have been offered the role of Lee Ra El, who was born between a genius father and a beautiful mother. After going through an unfortunate family affair, she transforms into a woman with a fatal charm who is likened to a “dangerous flower.” She is the woman at the center of the unbelievably expensive divorce lawsuit.
Park Byung Eun was given the role of the CEO of the No. 1 corporate group in the financial world. If Park Byung Eun accepts the offer, this will be his first leading role in a drama. The actor is currently starring in JTBC’s “Lost.”
Seo Ye Ji gained great global popularity through tvN’s “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.” She has not appeared in front of the public since the controversy of her alleged manipulation of Kim Jung Hyun‘s behavior in 2018, and she also withdrew from the drama “Island” that she had been in talks to star in. Her latest project was the film “Recalled” with Kim Kang Woo.
