Red Velvet's Joy Joins Kim Hye Yoon In Talks For New Webtoon-Based Drama

Red Velvet’s Joy may be teaming up with Kim Hye Yoon as besties in a new drama!

On June 7, Xportsnews reported that Red Velvet’s Joy is considering an offer to star in the drama “The Year We Turned 29” (working title).

Earlier in April 2022, it was revealed that actress Kim Hye Yoon was also in discussions for a lead role in the same drama.

In response to the report, Joy’s agency SM Entertainment stated, “Joy has received an offer to appear in the drama ‘The Year We Turned 29’ and is currently reviewing it.”

Similarly, a representative from Kim Hye Yoon’s agency Artist Company shared that Kim Hye Yoon is still considering her offer, adding, “Nothing has been confirmed yet.”

Based on a webtoon of the same name, “The Year We Turned 29” is a youth romance drama revolving around three individuals, all aged 29 and bearing the name Woo Ri, as they navigate the challenges of love, work, and studies. As they approach their 30s, the three learn to mature and rely on each other while experiencing the journey of life together.

The drama follows the lives of Bong Woo Ri, who enters art school later in life and works as a temporary designer at a small magazine company after graduating; Cha Woo Ri, a direct and cold flight attendant who has worked tirelessly all her life; and Kim Woo Ri, who has been diligently preparing for a civil service exam for years but is currently on a break after being diagnosed with panic disorder.

Reportedly, Joy has been offered the role of Cha Woo Ri. There’s no information yet on the role proposed for Kim Hye Yoon.

Initially scheduled for production as a drama in the latter half of 2020, the series was postponed but is now back in preparation for production.

Stay tuned for updates!
