Song Yoon-ah offered tvN bodyguard-romance drama K2
No confirmation has been made yet regarding Ji Chang-wook’s (Healer) potential casting in upcoming tvN production K2 (and I assure you I’m keeping an eager eye out for that update), but the show now also has an offer out to Song Yoon-ah (Assembly, Mama), and she is reportedly considering.
The drama description is still a bit vague; it’s a love story between a presidential candidate’s hidden daughter and a bodyguard who’s abandoned by his countrymen, with Ji Chang-wook considering the role of the bodyguard. Song Yoon-ah’s potential character will be the presidential candidate’s wife, who’s also the eldest daughter in a chaebol family. She has an approachable image that’s also graceful and elegant, and projects affection and integrity… but on the inside, she’s full of ambition and charisma.
Well, the casting call is pretty appropriate, since Song Yoon-ah has played all of those things at some point in her career, though perhaps not all at once in one character. Considering that the politician’s daughter is a hidden one (I take that to mean illegitimate), I’m thinking Song Yoon-ah won’t be her mother, though we’ll have to wait till more story details are released to get a handle on the plot.
K2 will be written by Jang Hyuk-rin of medical-romance thriller Yong-pal and directed by PD Kwak Jung-hwan of Chuno and Neighborhood Hero. It is currently in consideration for the Friday-Saturday timeslot on tvN to follow The Good Wife, which was until recently slated to go to the time-traveler-and-wife romance Tomorrow With You, which is hoping to score Lee Min-ki and Shin Mina to headline. If K2 wins out, it’ll premiere in September.
