Ji Chang Wook And Shin Hye Sun In Talks To Star In New Drama
Ji Chang Wook and Shin Hye Sun may be starring in a new drama together!
On February 2, TenAsia reported that Park Hye Sun will be starring in the new JTBC drama “Welcome to Samdalri” (working title). Edaily further reported that Ji Chang Wook is in talks to also star in the drama.
In response to the reports, a source from Shin Hye Sun’s agency shared, “It is true that Shin Hye Sun has been offered the role of the female lead in the new JTBC drama ‘Welcome to Samdalri,’ but nothing has been decided yet.” Shin Hye Sun is currently also in talks to star in “Wax Queen” (literal title).
A representative of Ji Chang Wook’s agency similarly stated, “He has received an offer to star in ‘Welcome to Samdalri,’ and he is reviewing the offer.”
“Welcome to Samdalri” tells the story of a main character, who appears to be like a dragon ascending to heaven in a magnificent way, as they suddenly lose everything one day, falling back down and catching their breath. The drama will be helmed by director Cha Young Hoon of “When the Camellia Blooms” and “Forecasting Love and Weather” and written by scriptwriter Kwon Hye Joo of “Go Back Couple” and “Hi, Bye Mama.”
Shin Hye Sun, who previously impressed in “30 but 17,” “My Golden Life,” “Angel’s Last Mission: Love,” and more after making her debut through “School 2013,” has been offered the role of Jo Eun Hye, who appears fragile but is actually strong.
Ji Chang Wook, who captivated audiences in “Backstreet Rookie,” “Suspicious Partner,” “Melting Me Softly,” and more, is in talks to star as Jo Young Pil who is Mado Meteorological Administration’s dunce.
“Welcome to Samdalri” is reportedly slated to broadcast this year. Stay tuned for more updates!
