GOT7’s Jinyoung And Noh Jung Ui In Talks For Webtoon-Based Drama
On April 28, Sports Chosun reported that Jinyoung and Noh Jung Ui will play the lead characters in the new drama “The Witch” (literal title). In response to the report, both Jinyoung’s agency BH Entertainment and Noh Jung Ui’s agency Namoo Actors clarified that they they received an offer to star in the drama and are positively reviewing it.
“The Witch” is a drama based on a webtoon of the same name drawn by Kang Full. It tells the story of a man who loved a woman called “witch,” and it will be helmed by director Kim Tae Kyun.
Jinyoung was offered the role of Lee Dong Jin. As soon as Lee Dong Jin graduates from college with a major in statistics, he was recruited by Shine Solution as the best data miner in the industry. During his school days, he met a girl named Park Mi Jung, who is swept up by all kinds of rumors. All he could do was be there for her and say that he believed her. However, she leaves school, and he studies statistics in order to tell her, “You’re not a witch.” One day, he reunites with her at the subway, and this time, he’s willing to give up his life for her.
Noh Jung Ui was offered the role of Park Mi Jung, a woman who enjoys complete freedom. Every day at 3:30 a.m., she dresses in pretty clothes and leaves her rooftop home. She becomes a translator by utilizing her English skills that she has been good at since she was little. Park Mi Jung, whose mother passed away when she gave birth to her, stands out even when she does nothing. Perhaps it’s because of her unique and mysterious vibes, but at some point, male students start to fall in love with her. She becomes embroiled in rumors with everyone labeling her as a “witch.” She’s used to the loneliness now, but from time to time, she recalls a boy from high school with a bright smile who used to pass by her with his group of friends.
“The Witch” is currently in discussion to be broadcast on an OTT platform, and filming will begin soon.
