For the upcoming season, Oh Yeon Seo and Jang Gyuri are currently in discussions to join the cast. On January 27, Oh Yeon Seo’s agency Story J Company revealed, “Actress Oh Yeon Seo has received an offer for ‘The Player 2’ and is currently reviewing it.” They added, “She has received an offer for the role of Jung Soo Min. As nothing has been confirmed yet, it’s difficult to share more about the role she’s been offered.”
On the same day, Jang Gyuri’s agency JUST Entertainment commented, “It’s true that actress Jang Gyuri has received an offer for ‘The Player 2.’ She’s currently positively reviewing [the offer].” It’s said that Jang Gyuri is in talks to play the role of Jae Yi, a skilled driver who hides a soft heart underneath her stern exterior.
