Lee Bo Young Confirmed To Star In New Drama About Advertising Agency
On June 9, it was confirmed that the actress will be starring in JTBC’s upcoming drama “Agency” (working title).
“Agency” is an office drama about a woman who becomes the company’s first female executive. She also goes beyond being the first female executive to build her career by taking on the highest position. The drama will take place at an advertising agency and portray the realistic behind-the-scenes stories of the industry and the daily lives of those living in a fierce world while competing to stand at the top.
Lee Bo Young will play Go Ah In, a woman who has overcome many hardships to become the first female executive at the nation’s greatest advertisement agency. Despite growing up in poverty and not having the best academic background, she has a strong desire for success. The more lonely and pained she is, the more she pushes herself and struggles to reach the top. Her co-workers see her as someone who only cares about success and money.
For this project, Lee Bo Young, who has both soft charisma and an unrivaled stage presence, will turn into an icon of independent woman and give birth to an overwhelmingly realistic character.
The drama’s production team commented, “Lee Bo Young was the only actress who could exude Go Ah In’s elegant yet desperate and soft yet intense aura.” Then they added they’ll show a realistic story of Go Ah In’s thorny road to success and the people of this industry who fight every day to reach the peak and achieve success.
“Agency” is slated to premiere in the first half of next year. Stay tuned for more updates!
