Suzy, Jung Eun Chae, Kim Jun Han, And Park Ye Young Confirmed For New Drama
Coupang Play’s new series “Anna” (literal title) has confirmed its cast!
Suzy was previously reported to be in talks for “Anna,” which was then known as “The Second Anna.” Directed by Lee Joo Young, it is an eight-episode drama that was originally conceived as a film. It is about a woman who starts off by telling a small lie and ends up living someone else’s life.
Suzy has been cast as Yoo Mi, the woman who tells a small lie and ends up living someone else’s life. Suzy earned the nickname “the nation’s first love” career in her debut hit film “Architecture 101” and has recently starred in dramas like “Vagabond” and “Start-Up.”
Jung Eun Chae has been cast as Hyun Joo, a woman who lives her life holding herself above everyone, treating them with neither kindness nor malice. She has a subtly tense relationship with Yoo Mi. Jung Eun Chae is a multifaceted actress who has appeared in dramas like “The Guest” and “The King: Eternal Monarch.”
Kim Jun Han has been cast as Yoo Mi’s husband, Ji Hoon, who is ambitious and future-oriented. Kim Joon Han recently appeared in the hit drama series “Hospital Playlist.”
Park Ye Young has been cast as Ji Won, a dependable senior who is the only person whom Yoo Mi trusts. Park Ye Young recently appeared as Writer Wang in the drama “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha.”
Director Lee Joo Young said, “‘Anna’ is a story about someone who loses themselves and part of their life because of a lie that started from a feeling of loss.” Coupang Play’s general director, Kim Sung Han, stated, “We were drawn to the immersion of the story. We are looking forward to Lee Joo Young’s unique perspective and detailed direction as well as Suzy’s big transformation. We are positive that this will be a trending project that will draw attention in 2022.”
Suzy said, “When I read the script, it was like I’d been swept up in ‘Anna.’ I was nervous in a good way while preparing for the project, and couldn’t wait for the day that filming would begin. I’m looking forward to the ‘Anna’ that the director, the staff, and we can make together.”
Jung Eun Chae said, “The powerful script captivated me. I’m looking forward to showing a new character, and I’m happy to be working with such great actors and crew members.” Kim Jun Han said, “As soon as I read the script, I wanted to do the project. There’s a strong sense of depth in the story and the director’s perspective is exciting. I’m grateful to be part of this project.” Park Ye Young said, “It’s an honor to work with such great people on such a great project. I’ll do my best so that we can get great results as well.”
“Anna” will premiere sometime in 2022.
