Lee Sung Kyung Joins Lee Dong Wook And Ryu Hye Young In Talks For New Drama
On November 15, industry insiders reported that Lee Sung Kyung will be starring in the upcoming drama “Nice Guy” (literal title) along with Lee Dong Wook and Ryu Hye Young.
In response to the report, a source from Lee Sung Kyung’s agency YG Entertainment shared, “She received an offer and is reviewing it.”
“Nice Guy” is follows the story of Seok Chul, the eldest grandson in a family of three generations of good-for-nothing men, as he brings laughter and tears while facing the tumultuous ups and downs of life in order to protect his family, career, and love. The drama will be written by scriptwriter Kim Woon Kyung of “The Moon of Seoul,” “There Are Blue Birds,” “Yoo Na’s Street,” and more and director Song Hae Sung of “Failan,” “Maundy Thursday,” “Boomerang Family,” and more.
Last year, Lee Dong Wook was reported to play the leading role of the main character Seok Chul, and his agency King Kong by Starship remarked at the time that he is reviewing the offer.
Furthermore, in March earlier this year, JTBC News reported that Ryu Hye Young will also be starring in the drama as Seok Chul’s younger sister Park Seok Hee, an upright daughter whom her mother can rely on. Her agency King Kong by Starship similarly shared at the time, “She is positively in talks to star [in the drama].”
