Choi Ji-woo back in dramaland as a lawyer
Choi Ji-woo, the actress whose face practically defines Hallyu (along with, oh, Lee Young-ae and Bae Yong-joon and a handful of others), has announced her next drama. (Well, again. She’d announced a different drama comeback earlier this year.)
It’ll be an MBC series to air later this summer, titled (for now) Can’t Lose. She stars as one-half of a lawyer couple in the midst of divorce (what is it with drama divorcées these days? They’re the new careerwoman, who were the new Candys, who were the new Cinderellas), with events unfolding with a “warm, light touch.”
Choi’s Eun-jae character is a skilled, tough lawyer, described by Choi as “charming and lovable.” Now the question is: Who plays hubby dearest? Reports hint that there’s another popular Hallyu star being courted to play the male lead, who’s in the latter stages of the casting process. If he’s on a similar level (and age range) as Choi, that leaves a pretty finite list of possibilities, although it seems that every day another actor gets to stretch the term and call himself a budding Hallyu star. Hmm… Song Seung-heon? Jung Woo-sung? Kwon Sang-woo?
The drama will follow current Wednesday-Thursday series You’ve Fallen For Me, and premieres in August.
