Song Ji-hyo considers lonely careerwoman role in tvN drama short
Song Ji-hyo (This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair) has received an offer to play the lead in a one-episode drama called Chief B and the Love Letter, which comes as part of CJ E&M’s program for rookie screenwriters called OPEN. It’s part of their efforts to seek and foster new talent, and this project comes from OPEN writer Shin Soo-rim and will air on tvN and its online streaming service TVING.
Song Ji-hyo is currently reviewing the project positively, which is a single-act drama about women in their thirties. The role she is considering is the general affairs chief, Bang Ga-young, of a luxury shoe distribution company. Although to others she seems to be perfectly juggling a marriage and career, inside she’s desperately lonely. She’s so lonely that she’s on the verge of asking any man on the street to date her, but she doesn’t have that kind of courage. So maybe she’s not married, but is pretending to be?
After she reached thirty, her confidence began a downward spiral that she can’t seem to escape. So the drama will follow how she fights tooth and nail to keep her pride and pursue her life to the fullest. To be honest, it sounds a lot like Song Ji-hyo’s previous role in This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair, where she played a supermom who seemed to be perfectly balancing job and family but was actually exhausted and lonely the entire time. So I’m sure that she’d be able to handle the role.
Chief B and the Love Letter is planned to air at the end of this year on tvN and TVING.
