Choi Tae Joon And Song Ji Eun In Talks To Star As Leads Of New Fantasy Rom-Com
On September 6, JTBC News reported that Choi Tae Joon would be starring in the upcoming drama “His Voice” (literal title). SPOTV News also reported that Song Ji Eun would be joining him as the female lead.
Following reports, a source from Choi Tae Joon’s agency Studio Santa Claus Entertainment stated, “Choi Tae Joon has received an offer to star in ‘His Voice,’ and he’s currently reviewing the offer.” A source from Song Ji Eun’s agency Magiq similarly stated, “Song Ji Eun has received a casting offer for the drama ‘His Voice,’ and she’s reviewing the offer.”
“His Voice” is a fantasy rom-com about a convenience store part-timer who is searching for a full-time job, a handsome pilot, and his pet cat. The drama tells the story that unfolds when the shy female lead gains the ability to communicate with a cat she coincidentally meets and comes to make some sort of deal with the prickly cat.
Choi Tae Joon has been offered the role of Baek Tae Hwa, the cat’s owner and an airline co-pilot. He has a good background and handsome looks that would make anyone fall for him. Due his naturally sweet personality, Baek Tae Hwa has often made women cry without meaning to. The pet hotel he uses suddenly closes before his flight one day, so Baek Tae Hwa ends up entrusting his pet with a woman.
The actor was officially discharged from the military in May 2021 after serving as a public service worker. If Choi Tae Joon accepts the role, this will be his first time starring in a drama since his return besides “So I Married the Anti-Fan,” which was filmed prior to his enlistment.
Song Ji Eun is in talks to play the role of the female lead Go Mi Rim, who has an ordinary background and is optimistic by nature. She works part-time at a convenience store while looking for a full-time job. Go Mi Rim agrees to take care of the cat owned by her one-sided love interest, but she starts to hear the cat’s voice after being hit by lightning, setting up the plot for an interesting romance to unfold.
The star previously impressed with her acting in her past dramas “Sweet Home, Sweet Honey,” “My Secret Romance,” “Melting Me Softly,” and “Shh! Please Take Care of Him” (literal title). Already, viewers are looking forward to Song Ji Eun’s next transformation.
As a mid-form drama, “His Voice” is currently in discussion to air via OTT platforms. The script is penned by scriptwriter Kim Kyung Hee of “Eighteen, Twenty-Nine,” “Discovery of Love,” and “Brilliant Heritage.”
