Jun Ji Hyun And Kang Dong Won In Talks For New Romance Drama By “Little Women” Creators
On March 28, an industry representative reported that the two stars will be starring in the new drama “Polaris” (working title).
In response to the report, a source from Jun Ji Hyun’s agency IEUM HASHTAG commented, “Jun Ji Hyun was offered a role in the drama ‘Polaris’ and is positively reviewing [the offer].” A representative of Kang Dong Won also responded, “It is one of several projects he has been offered.”
“Polaris” is a new spy romance drama and tells the stories of spies who work to find their true selves. The drama will be created by screenwriter Jung Seo Kyung and director Kim Hee Won, who previously worked together on “Little Women.” Jung Seo Kyung has also worked on hits including “The Handmaiden,” “Mother,” and “Decision to Leave,” while Kim Hee Won has led productions such as “The Crowned Clown,” “Crash Landing on You,” “Vincenzo,” and more.
As Kang Dong Won has mostly appeared in films, this will be his fourth drama ever and his first drama in nearly 20 years since “Magic” in 2004 if he accepts the offer. Jun Ji Hyun has starred in dramas more frequently, receiving love for her roles in “My Love From the Star,” “The Legend of the Blue Sea,” “Jirisan,” and more.
“Polaris” is set to begin filming once casting is complete.
