Choi Ji Woo Confirmed to Play Lead Role in New Romantic Comedy Drama
Actress Choi Ji Woo has landed the lead female role for tvN’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama “20 Years Old Again (working title).”
This new drama will center around Ha No Ra (Choi Ji Woo), who is a wife and mother but enters college in 2015 to start studying.
36-year-old Ha No Ra dreamt of becoming a dancer in her high school years, but met her husband Kim Woo Chul when she was 19. After having a child, she focused on taking care of her family and had to give up her dreams. In hopes of becoming a proud wife and mother to her college professor husband and her son Min Soo, she strives to enter college and ends up getting accepted into the same college as her son.
The producers of this drama claim, “Choi Ji Woo has always played diverse roles in her range of dramas. We thought that she was the perfect one to play the bold and bright Ha No Ra. Fans can definitely look forward to how Choi Ji Woo’s second chance as a 20-year-old will look like.”
Filming will begin in mid-July after the casting calls for men wrap up, and the first episode will air after “Oh My Ghostess” finishes its run in late August.
