Namgoong Min And Ahn Eun Jin In Talks To Star In New Historical Romance Drama
On July 20, YTN star reported that Namgoong Min and Ahn Eun Jin were offered the leading roles for MBC’s new drama “Lovers” (literal title).
In response to the report, a representative of Namgoong Min’s agency 935 Entertainment shared, “It is one of the projects he has been offered,” and added, “As he is currently filming for ‘1000 Won Lawyer,’ he is focusing on filming for that drama. Nothing has been decided regarding his following project.”
Ahn Eun Jin’s agency United Artists Agency also remarked, “‘Lovers’ is one of the projects she has received an offer for. She is currently reviewing the offer.”
“Lovers” is a history romance drama taking place in Joseon Dynasty that tells the story of a man, who has declared that he will not marry, falling in love with a woman who dreams of love again even after two failed marriages.
Namgoong Min is in talks to play Lee Jang Hyun, a mysterious man who suddenly appeared in Neunggeun Village’s high society one day. After experiencing an unimaginable tragedy in life, he finds nothing to be interesting, but he is strongly attracted to a woman named Yoo Gil Chae who has a strong will to live that he does not have.
Ahn Eun Jin was offered the role of Yoo Gil Chae, the second daughter of Yoo Gyo Yeon who is a nobleman retired to the countryside. Yoo Gil Chae is a figure who reigns as a socialite goddess with her beauty and charm. She would do whatever it takes to get what she wants. She also has a crush on Yeon Jun, who already has a fiancée, but the mysterious Lee Jang Hyun, whose every aspect is different from Yeon Jun, is in the back of her mind.
“Lovers” draws a lot of expectations as it is written by Hwang Jin Young, an established writer in historical dramas who previously penned “The King’s Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang” and “The Rebel.” “Lovers” will be helmed by producing director Kim Sung Yong of “The Veil,” which Namgoong Min also starred in. The drama is scheduled to air in the first half of next year.
Meanwhile, Namgoong Min is currently filming for SBS’s new Friday-Saturday drama “1000 Won Lawyer”. Ahn Eun Jin is preparing for the Netflix series “Goodbye Earth.”
