Ji Sung, Uhm Ki Joon, And Uhm Hyun Kyung Confirmed To Join Girls’ Generation’s Yuri In New Drama

After Girls’ Generation’s Yuri was confirmed to appear in the upcoming SBS drama “Defendant,” Ji Sung, Uhm Ki Joon, and Uhm Hyun Kyung have also signed on to the project.

On November 18, Ji Sung’s agency, Namoo Actors, officially confirmed the actor’s appearance.

Ji Sung will play an ace prosecutor named Park Jung Woo, who is fiercely dedicated and in favor of strict punishment at his job, but transforms into a loving father and husband at home.

When his wife and child are murdered, he finds himself locked in prison and charged with the crime. Facing a death sentence and suffering from temporary amnesia, he must prove his innocence and find his family’s true killer.

Kwon Yuri plays the lawyer Seo Eun Hye, while Uhm Ki Joon has been cast in a double role. He will play the twins Cha Seon Ho and Cha Min Ho, who have contradictory personalities and are the heirs to a shady company. Uhm Hyun Kyung has been cast as the daughter of a bankrupt conglomerate family who seeks to regain her old lifestyle by marrying Cha Seon Ho.

The script is written by Choi Soo Jin, who wrote “City Hunter,” and Choi Chang Hwan. It is directed by Jo Young Kwang, who directed “Hyde, Jekyll, Me.”

The drama will air its first episode in January after the end of “Romantic Doctor Kim.”
