Lee Ji Ah, Lee Sang Yoon, And More Confirmed For New Drama By “The Penthouse” Writer
Upcoming drama “Lady” (literal title, previously known as “First Lady”) has confirmed its main cast!
“Lady” is a new drama created by Kim Soon Ok, the writer of the smash hit “The Penthouse” series and the popular drama “The Last Empress.” The show will be helmed by director Choi Young Hoon, who recently worked together with Lee Sang Yoon on the hit SBS drama “One the Woman.”
It depicts a fierce survival story of a woman who must become the First Lady to protect her beloved family. One day, she faces the terrible truth of the past that she had completely forgotten, and she will take desperate revenge against those who are responsible for what happened to her.
Lee Ji Ah is set to play Hong Tae Ra who will walk the path of a First Lady due to her husband’s presidential bid. She has wealth, fame, the unwavering love of her husband, as well as a pretty daughter, but she has no memories of the past. One day, her sealed memories will unravel the truth about her life that she had once believed was perfect. Lee Ji Ah is expected to make another drastic transformation in “Lady” as she plays a character who struggles desperately for survival and revenge.
Lee Sang Yoon takes on the role of Pyo Jae Hyun, who is Hong Tae Ra’s husband. He’s a genius developer with soft leadership and sensible personality. He’s recognized by Generation Z as one of the entrepreneurs they want to take after. He developed new technology in the neural smart patch field, and politicians believe he could be the next president of South Korea. In particular, expectations are high for his acting synergy with Lee Ji Ah.
Jang Hee Jin will transform into Go Hae Soo. She is the main anchor of YBC, the wife of Jang Do Jin (Park Ki Woong), and the daughter-in-law of Geumjo Group. She may seem confident and bold, but she has a scar from her past that hasn’t healed yet. Unable to escape from the nightmare of “that day,” she persistently chases after the unrevealed truth.
Park Ki Woong’s character Jang Do Jin is a competitive man who enjoys bets. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and he is the management representative of the IT company Haechi. He is close friends with Pyo Jae Hyun, who has constantly fired up his competitive streak since college and made him experience the bitter taste of defeat for the first time.
Bong Tae Gyu will reunite with his “The Penthouse” co-star Lee Ji Ah and play Goo Sung Chan, a hacker-like geek and the head of Haechi’s research institute. Pyo Jae Hyun, Jang Do Jin, and Goo Sung Chan have been like the Three Musketeers since college, and Goo Sung Chan is obsessed with the research of smart patches, which is the company’s core technology.
The drama’s production team commented, “It is the story of a woman who was given the wrong fate. Her desperate retribution for those who have ruined her life and the struggle to protect her family will be portrayed in a thrilling way.”
“Lady” will premiere in 2023. Stay tuned for updates!
